It must have been with a heavy heart that Gemma’s evicted owner left her with us at the care center. Indeed, she had just one word to describe her dog…Perfect… Gemma was owned since the tender age of 2 months and lived in harmony with a young child, loved and played with little dogs and was respectful of cats. Male dogs made her a bit wary, mostly when they sniffed her…. She is known to be very playful and loving, well mannered, crate and housetrained. Gemma is a precious gem, well made, outstandingly groomed, compact, petite at 38 pounds and very lively. She is ready when you are and an excellent walker who seems to be housetrained. She appears to like other dogs very much, even play bows in the street or in the yard to some. She does not understand when a large female growls at her and just stays there…..Gemma loves food that she snatches from my hand after multiple pirouettes of excitement in the air and it takes a few prompts to make her sit like a young lady for what she wants. She might be like a kid, trying with someone else what she is not allowed to do at home… I can see a little bit of naughtyness in her eyes…She is only one year old and will need just some fine tuning to be in sync with her new owners. She has already quite a nice bagage as a young family dog. Gemma loves to play ball and to play in general. It is a pleasure to see her running though the yard like a carefree little gal. She is a lot of fun to be with. Gemma is a young damsel, cute as a button, brought up with love and with us for no fault of her own. Come , meet her soon and give her the chance to be….. your perfect ‘little girl”.
Another Volunteer Wrote: Everything we say about Gemma should end with an exclamation point, as she is the epitome of fun and joy! And if she could speak we know it would be like this! An owner surrender–her former family had housing issues-who lives with small people of all ages, Gemma is contagiously joyful. She aced her behavior test with the one small teeny note saying she might benefit from some training so she doesn’t jump, but the one time she did jump on me she is so tiny and it was just because she couldn’t contain her enthusiasm…I had to smile. Gemma knows her basic commands, has a stupendous sense of humor, and gives more kisses than dogs ten times her size. She’s a hummingbird of happiness, looking for a nest to call her own. Come and get her!
