9 year old female tri-pod
Dog friendly with submissive dogs
Ok with cats
Fostered in Mollala, OR
Hi there all! My name is Gemma, but you can call me Jammin' Gemma. I am 9 years young, and they say I am a "Tri-Pod", whatever that means, don't all dogs have three legs? I get around just like everyone else, so I don’t really notice a difference. That fourth leg is just an extra, I think!
I am a lover, not a fighter. I am a nice, mellow older gal, but I am wise and experienced. The other pups know that and seem to know I am the boss lady around these parts. I get along just great with everyone.
I am a wiggly, snuggly boxer girl with a lot of spunk and love to give. I like other dogs my size, but I am not a fan of the little dogs, and I want to check out the cats, but mom tells me no, and I move on. I love to eat, and am not a picky eater, but I do like a grain free diet.
I can be a little mischievous about garbage, so even though I am not destructive, garbage should be locked or put away around me. I am very curious about what delicious things might be found in there! I love to sleep right next to you in bed and snuggle the night away, and will even snuggle with my other fur-friends if they let me.
I am looking for a home that can take me one short walks, play with me (I love the tennis balls), snuggle, and go for car rides (I call shotgun!).
From the foster family:
Gemma is a fantastic senior girl who does not even realize she is missing a leg. She is a love bug who love to snuggle and hang out, but does well even alone while you are gone (just need to keep the garbage out of reach). She is a little bossy, so she would do well with a submissive dog or dogs. She likes to look at the cats but redirects easily and ignores them after that. She loves car rides, and loves to sit shotgun, whether it is in someone's lap or not.
If you want a loving senior girl, who is not very active this is your girl. What's not to love about that beautiful snowy face? Please fill out an application today here: http://www.nwboxerrescue.org/adoption-form
