Gustaf is a great dog. He gets along with other dogs and loves to ride in the car. He was adopted quickly after he first arrived; however, he was returned later because of a change in the owner’s employment. He would not be able to care for the dog properly. Gustaf is a hound/retriever mix. He will make a great pet for the right family and surroundings.
