Enquire about GUSTAVE – ADOPTED!

Spread the word

Just into foster where he will receive love, basic training and be prepared for adoption.

This is what we know so far:

GUSTAVE was acquired from somewhere as a cute young pup ‘for the children’. Apparently this family did not realise that (a) puppies grow; (b) puppies need time and attention; (c) puppies need to be helped in their learning.  GUSTAVE is now 9 months old and was abandoned to the refuge because he is ‘too big’ to which we can probably add ‘for the environment in which he found himself’ – a bored, no longer fluffy puppy.  He is in fact just a medium-sized dog that you’d expect with a “settollie” (collie x setter.)!    This mix is usually handsome, charming, fast and intelligent.

Early day comments from his foster family are that GUSTAVE has a lovely temperament but has received little or no training to date.  He is however clean in the home and is not destructive.  He has just not had the stimulus and opportunity a maturing puppy of his age desperately needs.  This is something his foster family will be working to rectify.

If you would like to consider adopting this gorgeous boy who is essentially still just a pup, please apply online by clicking the link on this page.  If you are already known to us, please drop us a line at

GUSTAVE is currently in Dept 65 (Hautes Pyrénées), but the right family for him is more important than location.
