• Animal ID#: A305944
  • Dog Name: Gemma
  • Dog Sex: Female
  • Approximate Age: 1 year
  • This is one sweet, gentle and precious girl who’s far too into people for shelter life. She’s struggling so hard away from people day in and day out in the shelter environment, so she doesn’t show well in her kennel. People are her jam and being around them is her favorite thing. She would do best as a beloved indoor companion as she doesn’t like being alone.  and she could use some confidence building in a home, does not like being left alone. She’s one adorable girl, and we can’t wait to see her start thriving in a loving home!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
