I am already spayed, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Gemma was found wandering on a highway service road one freezing February afternoon, likely dumped, in a squalid Third Ward neighborhood. She had difficulty walking due to horribly overgrown nails. She was immediately taken to our vet for a health check and vaccinations. The doctor said she appeared to have been spayed already and that she is approximately ten years old. The most amazing findingÂ–she is heartworm-free! For a dog living outdoors in Houston, Texas, that is nothing short of a miracle. After her nail trim, we were delighted to see Gemma practically skip across the room, finally pain-free.
Gemma went to her foster home, where she quickly discovered she loved sleeping on the sofa. ALL DAY long! With her one piqued ear and soft, inquiring eyes, Gemma inquisitively ventured out of her shell to discover the little pleasures in life: a warm bed, regular meals (she has a very healthy appetite), and friendly people. She plays well with people, dogs and cats and adds a calm, sweet presence to any room she enters. She would love a warm, welcoming home to spend her remaining years. Can you provide Gemma the home she truly deserves? Contact Brenda at email@example.com to arrange a meeting with Gemma.
