Gina is a tiny low-maintenance couch potato. She’s timid in a new environment especially with strangers but very sweet towards her humans. She was found abandoned in the countryside. After being rescued, she has recovered fully from rear leg surgeries but not suitable for intensive exercise and climbing stairs. Occasionally she can be mean towards other female dogs at home so best to go a household as the only dog or with other male dogs who she gets along fabulously. Gina is looking for an experienced gentle family without kids who can provide further socialization with people.
Gina is spayed (November-04-2014), up to date with routine shots, micro-chipped, de-wormed and tested negative for heartworm.
