Gilly was picked up as a stray in Dallas in August. In the shelter, she was completely shut down. As in, she wouldn’t walk a single step, she cowered on the ground, and even peed from a laying down position for a few days after she got to her foster home.
Gilly was semi-quarantined at first while she took antibiotics for a skin infection that left her hairless over about half of her body, and red, raw and itchy. Most of her hair has now grown back and she's looking healthy and has gained weight. She is terrific in her crate, where she stays while her foster mother is at work. She takes treats gently and she's doing GREAT learning "sit."
Gilly has really come alive! She's a whirling dervish of energy now, ALWAYS wants to play with the other dogs, super energetic, she fearlessly bounds from one situation to the next. And she loves chewing on bones and toys (and magazines).
She does not have great manners, and her foster mother is (clearly) no obedience trainer. Her worst offense is jumping up. She has exuberant puppy enthusiasm. She's smart (she knew her name from day one) and she knows how adorable she is. She hasn't ever had an accident in the house, and knows how to ring the bell on the door knob to signal that she needs to go outside.
If you'd like to meet Gilly, please fill out an application & be sure to mention her name!
