Gus was one for the most amazing dog that we have ever known, he was the mascot for Modern Ironworks.  Gus did a lot of photo shoots for product that we make.  Gus was also known as the cookie monster and always showed up if you had food.  I grew up showing Akitas and Gus is the reason I returned back into the dog show ring.  Gus was a heavy marked Harlequin but this did not stop him from being king of the ring and he loved it.  He was not marked correctly for the show because of to much black, I would have loved to be able to show him in AKC.  I took him to IABCA, UKC and Canada shows and he did very well.  Gus was a very proud dog and full of himself.  He was a ONCE in the lifetime dog and will be forever in our hearts.  Gus is the one that made it all happen. 

 

He will be truly missed.  RIP Capt. Gus
