Pet of the week – Gemma
Gema has been staying in foster and her foster mom has this to say. “She has been a perfect guest except for an occasional chase of the chickens, too much fun to resist. She doesn’t seem to want to harm them just hard to pass up. At my home she is sharing with several other dogs and has had no issues with food, toys or beds. She is perfectly housebroken and goes outside when needed. Gema has been sleeping at night on a dog bed and is quiet all night. She is not interested in playing with the other dogs but also isn’t interested in causing any trouble, she tries to avoid conflict if possible. She is a climber and still has the urge to escape if something startles her, so, not a pooch who can be left out in the yard alone. She really wants company and is happiest with people around.
I would say she would make a perfect pet for someone who is home or works from home or she could even go to work with someone. Gema is a special needs adoption because she had a heartworm infection that was treated but will need follow up with a veterinarian and when she first arrived in our care here at the shelter she had a lot of anxiety about being crated or left alone. With lots of time, patience and the help of some anxiety medication she has learned to settle in a variety of environments and relax enough to start to enjoy life and making new friends. Please come in and visit Gema she is very special.
