Have You Seen Gus?
Please help me find my dog. His name is Gus. He is a very well behaved, happy and approachable dog. He has actually been a therapy dog!Â He is an unneutered male 7 year old american pit bull terrier. He is mostly black with white around the nose chest and paws, see pictures below & pictures attached.Â He has weighed 60 lbs for most of his adult life.
He got out of the house without my realizing it.Â I live at 30-28 37th Street.Â After a good Samaritan tried to take him in Gus managed to scoot away while being walked.Â Gus was last seen at 774 Manhattan Ave, Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
I had not put his tags on his new collar, so he was without identification.Â Also, he was not microchipped.Â Therefore, if someone has taken him in they have no way to know to whom he belongs.Â I implore you to please be vigilant.Â I have had Gus for 7 years and am devastated.
I have been to and spoken with nearly every shelter in NYC,including the AC&C (Brooklyn & Manhattan) and the ASPCA.Â I have contacted I think every vet in the Greenpoint, the 94th and 114 Precinct and the canine unit in Brooklyn.Â I have put up flyers, emailed everyone I know and asked them to post flyers.Â I have posted adds on Pet911, Lost and Pound, PetFinder, Craigslist, Pet detectives, Craigs List, The Greenpoint pet blog spot, Myspace and Facebook.
