This sweet little girl was picked up by another rescue & they contacted us to take her. We did xrays on her back end due to her walking really funny. Poor old Gertie has been shot in the rear end. Our vet said that she had a big pellet deep in the muscle that she didn't want to dig for and make her more sore since it wasn't causing her any problems. she does have very bad patellas, but is not in any pain from them as she doesn't limp just walks bowlegged. Since she is not hurting we are not going to do any surgery on them. Her hip joints are a little bit wonky as well. She was also in HEAT!!! Poor old girl. She Won't ever be in heat again that I can tell you. :) Gertie is a sweet girl who loves to get attention. She is good with the other dogs. She is sort of house trained, but still has accidents here and there. She is a sweet older girl. :) Fine with cats & dogs - fine with older kids.

Once we have your deposit we will hold the dog for you while we process your application. If you are not approved to adopt or we can not provide the dog you are interested in, your deposit is refunded. If you are approved, the deposit is applied toward the total donation of the dog. If the dog is not a good match, we will work with you to find another dog or refund your deposit. We want you to be certain that this is a decision your have thought through thoroughly & not just a whim so if YOU change your mind for ANY reason, your deposit is not refundable!
