Gigi is very outgoing, happy, bubbly, inquisitive and wonderfully affectionate, and her foster mom adores her. She gets along with cats, dogs, and older more mature children, and her foster mom thinks she is practically perfect! Gigi has blossomed into the ideal doggy companion since being in her foster home. They describe her as vivacious, a bundle of personality and a lot of fun. She is enjoying learning to be an adored pet and just loves it. Gigi is house-trained and playful, once she gets to know you. Although she is crate-trained, she has not been crated at all in her foster home and prefers not to be. If it is necessary, it should be only for her owner to run errands, not to be gone all day.
Gigi does love her fenced yard and romps around, being close to her people. Therefore, she definitely needs a fenced yard and an owner who is committed to going outside with her to insure her safety. She is very loyal and is not a hyper dog. She really loves to go bye-bye in the car and to take walks. Gigi has made a close attachment to another foster dog, a male, and she would like someone to take his place in her new home. She would prefer someone who works from home, can take her to work with them, or someone who is home most of the time.
Gigi is up to date on her vaccinations, heartworm negative, and has been spayed and given a clean bill of health.
We do not ship our rescues, and the adopter does have to travel to the foster home to pick up the dog, and we never place dogs with an electric or invisible fence. Pet doors are ok as long as they are closed and locked while the family is gone and at night.
