Meet Gidget!

Sweet Gidget was owned along with another 3 dogs by an elderly couple who sadly were unable to have the 3 dogs any longer. When Gidget was dropped off at the San Diego Shelter, she was terrified and was there for almost 10 days. She was not adoptable as she would run away and be terrified of anyone approaching her. ARWOB asked a volunteer to go assess her and she did beautifully. After sitting on the ground and having another small dog there in her kennel to help her realize we were friends, she snuck behind our volunteer and licked her hand and showed her belly for belly rubs. The next day we exited her and she has been wonderful the minute she met her new foster mom. She was great with her cats and dogs and ZERO aggession has been seen. She has learned the crate very well and is not a big barker she is more of a people dog ei she enjoys being with you and receiving attention, BUT she also LOVES other dogs. Ideally,her new family would have another dog in the home but is not a requirement. However, Gidget has never been left home alone and would not know if she would be fine being left home for a long period of time while at work. We do know with other dogs around she is fantastic. Her best friends currently are Sparky and Lulu. She also enjoys cats and well mannered children who know how to behave around dogs and being gentle with them.

About Animal Rescuers Without Borders, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

The A.R.W.O.B. group is based in San Diego, CA and operates mostly in Mexico as well as Southern California and will come to the aid of any animal in need which crosses our path. Our belief is to do what we can in order to “Make a difference in their lives.” From experience we have observed and feel the companion animals of Mexico are in the greatest need and accordingly we focus much of our efforts in Baja, Mexico. However, we certainly extend our help to our north of the border critters by accepting relinquished family pets, exiting both dogs and cats from the shelters of San Diego and of course by working in conjunction with other animal rescue groups in the community
