Gemma's Story...
GEMMA is a precious gem of a dog! Her foster says she is a doll who is very gentle and has a quiet personality. She is a well mannered dog. She walks great on the leash and she is crate trained. Gemma gets along well with the other dogs at her foster home. More than anything, she just wants to be loved. She's a real cuddlebug. When first rescued, it was thought that Gemma was pregnant and pretty far along. Her tummy was huge. It turns out, upon examination by the vet, she was not pregnant but instead had an extremely infected uterus. She was admitted immediately and underwent surgery. She has been fully vetted, vaccinated , spayed and microchipped. She tested positive for heartworm and is currently undergoing the treatment needed to rid her of heartworms. She will complete that in March, at which time this healthy, beautiful bully girl will be ready to find her forever home. Gemma is 2 years old and weighs around 48 pounds. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Gemma if it means she will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer rescue to cover at least part of the cost of the veterinary care this dog has received.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gemma, a Union City Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Union City, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Union City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Union City already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Union City breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Union City paves the way for another one to be saved.
