PLS READ ENTIRE POST B4 CALLING..& FOR A RESPONSE PLS DONT EMAIL..PLS CALL..BUT ONLY AFTER READING ALL INFO...NO EMAILS WILL BE RESPONDED TO...ONLY PHONE CALLS...I DONT CHK EMAILS.. all your ?s are answered in this narrative..'TO KNOW GYPSY IS TO LOVE GYPSY' Ive been doing independent rescue in S Fla +/-30 yrs.Im small quantity& foster-based. I was diagnosed w/ cancer in Apr& went thru 6 chemo treatments. My last treatment was on Sept 22. My hair was always very lomg& I lost all of it &donated it for the 6th time. Regardless of what I'm going through I continue to save animals..My birthday was Oct 12 & I was being taken for dinner on Oct 6 when my plans took a turn . Seeing this poor soul .wandering an underprivileged area of Miami when I decided to not take I-95 which was bumper to bumper. I could not think of not stopping for her. She was a sweet humble soul& I was able to offer her food.(she was starving)..She was wagging her tail..she got into my car. Her boobs were sagging I was so fearful that I maybe I was taking her away from puppies but there was no milk coming out of any of her nipples. She was completely dry. She had ticks on her the size of turtles. She was immediately given a NexGard to get rid of all fleas& ticks& will continue to remain on flea& tick prevention. I called one of my participating veterinarians& took her over there for testing, vaccines& boarding. There was no tag on her& she was not microchipped which I was actually relieved that I didnt have to contact an owner because there was no way I would want to return her to somebody that was not caring for her to begin with. I NAMED HER GYPSY& she deserves to have the home that she never had. If I was able to have another, Gypsy would be the one, for sure. She is an absolute pleasure. Gypsy is in search of her forever home. 'BLACK DOGS MATTER..!!.' Other than not liking cats which is completely normal, Gypsy is the PEEFECT dog& would compliment ANY household. She is middle-aged probably somewhere between 6-8, as she does already have a little bit of white on her face. Even tough she is approx 65 lb,, Id have no hesitation adopting her to somebody in an apt. because she is not high energy, as long as your bldg doesnt have a weight restriction. She is friendly, kind & humble, so I would have no hesitation adopting her to a family w/ children as well. She also is not high energy, so I wouldnt have a problem putting her in a household w/an elderly person especially because she does not jump. She will do potty outside as long as u take her out. She is also crate trained, although I don't want her to live her life in a crate.. She is also great on a leash& she doesnt pull. She loves to sunbathe also still loves to play with toys. GYPSY IS IN SEARCH OF HER FOREVER HOME..SOMETHING SHE HAS NEVER KNOWN YET. Gypsy is super super sweet!!! . If u met her I promise u would fall in love because there's no way u wont. Gypsy isnt the kind of dog that would hesitate to love u when she meets u. She is so incredibly sweet& she falls in love @ first sight& all she wants to do is give kisses. She loves belly rubs as well.She also rides well in the car. I cant keep all of them& it breaks my heart that I cant keep her because I really love her& would want to keep her for my own so all I can do is unselfishly find the perfect family that will give her as much as I would for the rest of her life. SHE IS THE FRIEND U ARE LOOKING FOR& WILL LOVE U FOREVER..WILL U LOVE HER? .All shots are up to date& she will be adopted w/a certificate of clean health. She is spayed, microchipped (AND MICROCHIP WILL STAY IN MY NAME INDEFINITELY ...WILL NOT BE TRANSFERRED), heartworm neg& on heartworm & flea/tick prevention& if u adopt her u MUST keep her on both& up to date with yrly check ups& vaccines A phone interview, home chk, vet ref & rehomIng fee of $350 will be required to adopt Gypsy...

I HAVE OTHER PHOTOS TO SEND U AS WELL ONCE WE CONNECT& WOULD ENCOURAGE U TO MEET HER W/ME IN PERSON...THANK U SO MUCH FOR YOUR INTEREST IN GYPSY.
