UPDATE 11/20/17: Miss Gertie girl had fun during her Christmas photo shoot! She is looking good and building up her stamina on walks as she loses more weight! Gertie is hopeful to have a home by Christmas. Gertie is good with cats, however, will need to be the only dog in her home and will do best with kids over 10. Gertie occasionally needs to be on Apoquel for skin allergies. She is also is on a prescription diet for Urinary health as she had a kidney stone before. She is doing great on her diet too and is down nearly 10 pounds!


UPDATE: 11/03/17: Gertie is doing GREAT on her weight loss plan. She is down to 64 pounds! She is patiently waiting for her forever home and we hate seeing her passed up for other dogs, as she loves human companionship. She just turned 6 in September. She is looking for a home with no dogs or kids, but is best friends with a cat in her foster home. Could your home be Gertie's new castle??

UPDATE 8/5/17: Gertie is sitting and wondering where her forever home is, but we know it will be worth the wait! Gertie weighed in at 72 pounds at her last check up and now has strict orders to receive nothing but her cup of food twice a day. We have also switched her to the moderate calorie Royal Canine S/O food. This food has less calories and still is great for urinary tract issue. Other than her weight she is doing well and staying on apoquel for her skin allergies. If you are in a house with no other dogs and no kids under 12, Gertie could be the one! Gertie does do well with cats. 

UPDATE 6/26/17: Gertie is doing well and is now just on apoquel for her skin allergies and Hills Prescription Science Diet C/D. Gertie is a HAM and loves attention. If you have that to give her send in an application!

UPDATE 5/27: Gertie girl is doing great on prednisone and her urinary habits are becoming more normal! Gertie will still be going to a home without other dogs, but continues to do great with the cats in her foster home. She will do best with older kids, since she is stubborn. In the future she will remain on a prescription diet for her urinary tract. After Gertie's streak of bad luck we're determined to find her castle for her, as she LOVES attention!

Sadly, Miss Gertie finds herself back in rescue because she was not the right fit it looks like. Miss Gertie needs to be an only child in a home without dogs. Gertie is doing fine with cats in her foster home though. Gertie will also do best with a family with teenagers and older because she is a very stubborn girl!

One of her favorite past times is sleeping on the couch, that's usually where you can find her. She could stand to lose a few pounds health wise. Her left eye was damaged because it was not treated properly earlier in life. She also has a history of urinary tract issues including kidney stones, so she is on a prescription diet.

Miss Gertie deserves the best, so if you have no other pets in the home and are looking for a girl to love please consider Gertie!

UPDATE: 5/5/17 We are treating cystitis or inflammation of the bladder with steroids. After this we hope Miss Gertie will not have any more urinary issues as long as she stays on her prescription food! Gertie is on a weight loss plan too as she was 69 pounds at the vet!
