Gemma is only 6 months old and was brought to the shelter after her owner was moving- When she arrived there she was ok in the arms of her owner but when she realized she was going to a scary place she lost it and could not handle it. She stayed 2 weeks in her kennel petrified and barking in despair. When I went to see her it was so sad to see her yapping, it was like she was in pain with one paw up. She was going to be put down and I am so glad I saw her that day. There was something about Gemma. We tracked down her former owner and they sent me pictures and movie of Gemma playing with their child who was probably no more than 2 years old. It was so nice to see her playing and being very careful. I have her in my house with my 4 other dogs and she is a sweetheart. She would attach very easily. She will need some time to adapt to all the people in the house. My daughter is with me and she does sit down on the floor and Gemma will come running with her tail wagging but will still bark. it will take a few days for her to get used to her presence. Just need to work with her and willing to help her. She is fantastic with other dogs and loves to go to the dog park and will play with all the dogs. We would like for her to be in a house with an other dog medium size or larger male or female and a fenced yard. She loves to explore. She sleeps in the crate at night only, during the day she is with my pack and goes in and out of the house to the yard and goes potty there. Gemma is about 27LBS. please contact us at [email protected] - Her adoption fee is $250- She is fully vetted. knows some commands and listen well. We do not adopt out of State and family with small children. If you rent you need to have a history of having a dog. thanks for your understanding.
