Adopt this Dog Now! He’s the Cat’s Meow

Adopt this Dog Now! He’s the Cat’s Meow

GUS IS NOT a dog's dog. The 9-year old mixed breed doesn't enjoy the dog park — and actually likes cats! Could this be why his previous owner abandoned him, and he is now available for adoption through Friends for Life?


While Gus is crate-trained and knows many commands, he much prefers binging TV (just maybe not Cruella) to long walks. He would also be very pleased if movie night included French fries — his favorite food.

Gus does suffer from epilepsy and hypothyroidism, but they are both well managed with medication. He would love to find a comfy couch and an owner that understands that he might be closer to a housecat than a dog.

Gus is available for adoption through Friends for Life. Cute-animal-video fans might recall that, in 2019, Friends for Life Animal Rescue went viral online for a video of one of its cats repeatedly letting other cats out of their cages! The org certainly knows something about adorable pets — and wants to help you find your next one (could it be Gus?!) today.

THE WRATH OF Hurricane Beryl couldn’t stop the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo from presenting 70 students, representing 57 Future Farmers of America chapters from across Texas, with $1.4 million in scholarships to a college of their choice. Scholarships were awarded at last week’s 96th annual Texas FFA State Convention which, amazingly, was held July 8-12 in the George R. Brown Convention Center for the first time in 20 years. The scholarship awards are part of Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s $27.3 million dollar commitment this year to support Texas youth and statewide educational programs.
