Hi! My name is supposed to be Gus or Chico, but my foster family thinks I look like a noble Roman, so they call me Cato. I'll come if you call any of those names, because I just want to be close to my people. I am a great combination of snuggle bunny and tough guy--everything you'd want in a man! I get along well with my foster friends (a female dachshund and a German Shepherd). I don't let them take my things, but that's just me standing up for myself. The 3 of us like to hang out in the house or out in the yard. We only bark if there's a good reason. I have met lots of big and small people at my foster home, and I like all of them a lot. Once, a friend knocked on the door at night and let herself in, so I was suspicious of her and growled a little. Like any good man, I'm just a bit protective of my house and my people, especially at night. If I am sure you are nice, I am 100% trustworthy.

I am house trained (mostly--every once in a while I MIGHT lift my leg if I haven't been out in a while), I love my crate, and I will sleep there if you want me to. My first night here I put myself to bed in my crate without even being asked. Now I just sleep on a chair at night and only go in my crate when my foster mom is at work. I do just fine in there all day!

We have a yard here, and I have started to enjoy being out there a lot more, but I could also be very happy in a place with no yard. As long as I have my people, I am good! I am a great eater, I like to play with toys (but I don't take anything that isn't mine), and I am really just an uncomplicated guy. Are you looking for an all around nice guy? Then call me!
