Gus's adorable overbite does not interfere with his eating. "He's a little piglet," Biddlecombe said. "He eats so fast that it's crazy." When Gus was found he lacked back teeth; he has only front teeth.
He gets along with Biddlecombe's roommate's dog Alexa, a German shepherd mix, and enjoys chasing Presley the cat.
Immediately after Gus first arrived at his new home in Canada, there was a big snowstorm. And the 12-pound Chiweenie wanted nothing to do with the snow and cold. In order to get Gus to go outside and relieve himself, Biddlecombe had to shovel a path.
"I had to carry him out into the yard, plunk him down, and he would go and then he would walk to my feet, look up at me and wait to be picked up and be carried back inside," she said.
