Gemma was one of seven hounds dropped off at the shelter when the owner became ill and could no longer care for them. Unfortunately, it seems that they weren't really cared for before being dropped off as they were all covered with fleas and very thin. Gemma is a bit confused right now and is afraid of loud noises but will give a tiny tail wag when you talk to her. She will need a patient owner who will take the time to show her that there is nothing to be afraid of now. Another dog in the home would be a bonus! We look forward to the time when she learns that life is good and that most people are nice and will love her forever.
