Gertrude (Gertie) - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Gwinnett County Animal Control and Welfare, Lawrenceville, GA.


I saw a pictureless ad for an English bulldog. Something told me to go meet her and introduce her to Snoop. When I first saw her my heart melted. She was filthy, had recently had a litter of pups, blood in her urine, skin infections, ear mites, heartworm positive, inverted tail, and tumors.....She and Snoop have complete opposite personalities, but are inseparable. We have treated many of her issues and a couple more to go. She is the kindest, most gentle, loving dog. I am blessed to be the forever Papa for such two great kids.....I saw a bumper sticker once that said "who rescued who?"....
