Hi, my name is Gus and I am a 2 - 3 year old Pit mix.  I am a total ladies man and do well with children over 8 years old.  I am an 85 pound pure love bug and gentle giant.  I am looking for a home with no small dogs and no cats, but I do well with submissive female dogs over 50 pounds.  Everyone who meets me loves me; I am handsome, sweet well behaved.  


I was found as stray in York, badly injured, and ended up in a kill shelter.  The shelter was crowded and my time was running out.  Thankfully, Janine saw my picture and knew she had to save me.  I spent several weeks at Dillsburg Veterinary Center recovering from my injuries before coming to the Speranza farm and stealing all of the volunteers’ hearts.  

Check out my report card!

I am a big boy but I walk very well on leash.  I do want to chase cats, but I take correction well and move on quickly.  I am well behaved in general and keep a clean kennel.  I do not do well with small dogs, cats or male dogs.  Also, I potentially have a torn ACL and may need surgery to repair it.  I will be a foster-to-adopt situation and Speranza will pay all costs associated with my ACL surgery and aftercare.
