Gemma- Courtesy Post- Pending


*****Courtesy Post*****

Gemma is a gorgeous 4-year old, 60 lbs. pointer mix looking for her forever home due to a change in family circumstances. She will melt your heart with her soulful brown eyes and happily be your couch companion. Gemma is sweet, calm, and affectionate. She is friendly with adults and dogs and previously lived with children. No cats as she’s too interested in them. She will be a great addition to a person or family with a calmer lifestyle.

Gemma is potty trained and working on crate training in her foster home (she was left loose in prior home with no problems). She is gaining experience riding in vehicles and will be safest in a crate or buckled in with a harness.

She is up to date on vaccines, spayed, microchipped, and on monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention treatment.

Gemma is quiet but will let you know when Amazon delivers your packages. She knows sit and paw/shake. She is learning what toys are for and about the fun of doing zoomies in the backyard. She is food motivated and eager to learn. Training classes will help Gemma build skills that will enrich her life.

Gemma is gentle but her breed mix is strong, agile, and can have a prey drive, so a 6’ privacy fence is a must. She’s previously lived with dogs and will do well with a person or low-key family with a canine sibling. Having come from a rural setting, Gemma will thrive in a quieter neighborhood.

If you are looking for a loving, eager to please dog, look no further—Gemma may be the girl for you.
