Compared to its earlier form, Gumshoos is much bigger at 2 feet 4 inches and stands on two legs. Like its earlier form, it has a stripe of blonde fur going from the top of its head to its tail and another stripe of blonde fur going along its belly. It is much furrier now though, with extra tufts of its brown coat making it look like an overcoat. It has ears on the sides of its head, each with a notch as well as sharp triangular teeth. It seems to like to keep its arms behind its back
Unlike Yungoos, it prowls around, staking out its prey's route and waits for it to come by. It has a tenacious personality and can go a long while before hunger afflicts it. When the sun goes down, it can fall asleep on the spot and continue hunting the next day.
Gumshoos is derived from the term Gumshoe, which is a term for a detective. This is shown in his appearance with his fur jutting out like an overcoat,the blonde fur on its head resembling a detective's cap and that he holds his arms behind him like a detective in thought. His method of tracking prey is incredibly like a detective as well.
