Gertie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Gertie's Story...
Hi People,
My name is Gertie and I'm a very special girl. My foster Mom says I'm very smart, affectionate
and playful. She says I've come a long, long way since I was found wandering the streets of LA.
When I first came to her I was scared (and afraid, too!) but now I'm becoming more trusting
and confident every day.

Mom says to tell you I'm a medium sized dog that is big on love! I may be a bull/terrier mix and
I weigh about 50 pounds, fully grown. She says I'm young... probably between 1 and 2... and that
I simply love life! She also says that I do the cutest things. (Ask her about the time I found the
not-quite-empty cereal box - and what I did. She might even have a picture she can show you!)
I'm both playful and curious - but I'm also ALWAYS very gentle! I love all dogs and people and will thrive in a home where I can give lots of love and kisses (oh, yes.. and play with my humans
and other pets!)

People describe me as white with very short hair and white-and-black polka dot ears, (they're great for listening and I do that well! I never wander off and always come when I'm called. ) I'm not very tall, have one blue eye and one brown eye - and I'm always smiling! What I lack in the purebred looks department Mom says, I make up for with my sweet personality and eagerness to please.

I'm house trained, crate trained and love to walk on a leash. Mom says I very rarely bark, but sometimes I let out a little squeak when I'm especially excited or pleased. I play well with all my foster brothers and sisters, and I'm great with kids and adults. All I need is a place to call my forever home - with a family or person that is looking for a very special girl with lots, and lots, of love to give. If that sounds like you, please ask for me: I'm Gertie and I'm waiting for you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gertie, a La Costa Pit Bull Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in La Costa, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in La Costa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in La Costa 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 La Costa 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 Pit Bull Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in La Costa paves the way for another one to be saved.
