Gelda is quiet in the house and has great manners as long as you set the rules. She is a fast learner, and within three days at her foster home she was respecting the invisible boundaries established for her. She obeys a few commands, and being food motivated can likely learn many more commands with a treat incentive. Gelda walks well on a leash, and promptly responds to “stop” and “heel” –except when she sees another dog or other animal.
Gelda likes to play fetch, tug-of-war, and chew on squeaky toys. She is very content just hanging around with her person once she’s gone for a walk. Gelda is somewhat unsteady in her back end, but that doesn’t slow her down on her walks around the hilly streets of San Carlos, where she is presently located.
GSRSV rescued Gelda from the small shelter in rural Delano, CA, just north of Bakersfield, on March 1, 2013. Gelda had been at the shelter since December 19, 2013. Gelda's adoption fee is $200.
