gus·to /ˈɡəstō/ noun: enjoyment or vigor in doing something; zest.

Gusto fits the definition of his name as he is pure enjoyment to be around. This 18 months old Golden boy was abandoned in Istanbul, but he hasn’t let that get him down. Gusto has an eternal smile on his face, and he loves giving hugs to show how grateful he is to finally be safe and loved. He’s delighted with everything his new life, and has been soaking up all of the playtime and cuddling that his foster home has to offer. His affectionate and happy and calm nature will make everyone he meets fall immediately in love.
