Gemma is a beautiful 2 year-old Lab/Shepherd mix female who found herself homeless at an overcrowded county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline to be able to take as much time as she needs to find the perfect new home. She came into the shelter as a stray and was there about a month before coming to us. Gemma is a very friendly and outgoing dog but is also quite active so needs an energetic family to keep her busy. She gets along great with other dogs and loves playing chase and wrestling with her fellow foster dogs so would probably enjoy having a playful canine buddy in her new home. Gemma is very strong on the leash so will need work in that area. An Easy Walk harness is recommended for her as she works on her leash manners. She would also benefit from having a fenced yard to run and play in. Gemma has done well with crate training in her foster home so we expect she should be able to pick up the housetraining routine quickly in her new home. She would love to enroll in an obedience class with her new family so she can learn lots of new things and be the best canine good citizen she can be. Gemma weighs about 53 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Gemma.
