Gemma is a 2 year old shar-pei/pug mix that sadly has been bounced around through 3 different homes. Originally purchased from the pet store for a large amount of money, her owners had a baby and started to leave Gemma outside. Once the weather became cold a family member felt bad for Gemma and took her home but there were allergies in that home. Gemma's third home came to an end when they were moving to a place that did not allow animals. So, now here Gemma sits waiting for what she hopes will be a forever family. Gemma recently had her double eye surgery as well as the cherry eye surgery and she also got spayed. Gemma looks great and can finally see without being in pain! The vet did say that unfortunately she will need to be on a lifetime of eye meds because she was born without a natural tear production. She cannot produce tears on her own to help keep her eyes lubricated which can lead to other problems. Please do not let that affect your decision on giving this sweet girl a 4th chance! She deserves a loving home that will understand her medical needs and to show her love that she has not experienced. Gemma would do best as the only pet. We are unsure of her house breaking status, and she could use some obedience training. We are looking for a family with dog experience for our sweet Gemma. Kids 10+
