What can we say about Gertrude? She is the coolest older dog ever!! Like, ever. Part dog and part Muppet, she is definitely an old soul. She’s about 35 pounds, and some larger terrier mix. She is elderly (10+ years is our best guess) and has battled some medical issues. When she arrived she was heartworm positive and had Lyme disease. She finished a course of strong antibiotics and has one heartworm treatment under her belt! She is missing some teeth, but that doesn’t stop her munching on treats. She is typically very chill, although she does occasionally chase a rabbit across the yard. She is house trained, but she does sometimes make mistakes. She gets very thirsty, and so, needs to go out often. She can navigate the stairs although sometimes clumsily. She likes cuddles, but she prefers a nice bed of her own on the floor. She’ll come over for a kiss & a pet, then plop onto her bed. She is awesome! She will stand near you, just staring- right into your soul. She has this deep hoarse “woof” of a bark, although we rarely hear it. She is loving & funny, with that side look & one cocked ear. She will need a family who understands the care older dogs need, but she’s worth it!!
If you want to adopt a nice senior to enjoy her during her golden years, Gertrude is for you!!!
