Facts about Gypsy

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: White - With Gray Or Silver
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
I was tired of the kennel, I’d been in there too long
On a worn out old dog bed, living life all wrong
So while I lay there sleeping, I dreamt of a much softer bed
And of a lifelong family, where I’d be loved and well fed
“If you like going on long walks, and getting caught in the rain
If you’re not into kitties, and prefer dogs with a brain
If you like car rides in the morning, and lush green landscape
I’m the dog that you’ve looked for, come meet me and escape”
I didn't think about my foster mom, I know that sounds kinda mean
But with my canine siblings, crating became a routine
So I dreamt of the future, feeling kinda sad
What would they be like, a real mom and or dad.
“Yes we like going on long walks, and getting caught in the rain
We’re not much into felines, and like dogs with hip pain
We’ve got to meet you by tomorrow noon, we loved your videotape
We’ll come first thing in the morning, and plan our escape”
So I waited with high hopes and they walked in the place,
They were so very perfect, I kept my paws crossed in case
It was my very own family, and they said “girl, it’s you”
And I barked for a moment, because I never knew
“The perfect family was out there, we’d go on walks in the rain
They’d take me on long car rides and understand my hip pain
They’d furminate me every morning, and love my husky gal shape
I’m the dog that they’ve looked for, time to plan our escape”

Meet Gypsy

Gypsy is 4-5 year old pit bull mix, who didn't have the easiest start to life. Gypsy was found as a very friendly stray with a sore hip joint. Once seen by a vet, it appeared that she had an old untreated injury that has caused her some arthritis in the joint. One top of that, Gypsy was also positive for Lyme's disease, which was only amplifying her pain! While her old hip injury is not something the vet feels should be surgically treated, Gypsy has been treated for and cleared of Lyme's and with a few daily supplements for her hip is almost as good as new! She is currently taking Turmeric to help with inflammation and Glycoflex for her joints.

Gypsy loves going on walks, (she'll wait by the front door all morning until she gets one), and she also loves going on car rides! Gypsy is very friendly with all people, strangers and children and does well with her foster dog siblings. Gypsy should probably not go to a home with small animals or cats. While Gypsy loves children (her best friend is a 4 year old boy), Gypsy would be best in a home without small children or older children who can understand and respect her occasional soreness. Gypsy is not at the shelter and is in a foster home in the Lehigh Valley.
