Meet Giselle

Giselle is a sweet, social, affectionate, silly, and intelligent girl. She enjoys the outdoors and exploring with her nose to ground, so she'd probably be happiest with a fenced yard where she can roam freely. She instantly wants to be friends with everyone she sees and is very trusting of people. She can be cautious when meeting another dog but warms up quickly. She gets really excited when meeting someone new, so for older pets this may be too much action for them. She loves toys she can toss around and chase. She has had some crate training and can typically hold it for about 6 hours in the crate. She always wants to be with her people and will quickly adopt new ones into her pack. She already knows a small amount of hand signals and learns quickly.

We are happy to consider applicants from out of state. However, if the applicant is approved, they must be willing to come to our location in Troy, VA, for a meet and greet. If all parties agree that the pup and family are a good fit, they would take the pup home at that time.

GDU does ask a minimum adoption donation of 300.00. This is a minimum donation and does not cover all expenses, as we are funded solely by the angels and volunteers willing to donate time and finances. This minimum donation includes DAPP, rabies if age appropriate,, heartworm test and preventative, if age appropriate, and flea and tick treatment, as well as neutering or spaying if the animal is medically sound to undergo surgery. This minimum donation does not even begin to cover the actual expenses each animal has while in rescue, but does go directly towards vet care for our rescue animals. In an attempt to avoid tummy upset from a sudden change of food, the foster family may include a small, transitional bag of the food the dog/puppy has been eating. And if the dog/puppy has grown attached to a special item (like a toy or blanket), they may send that along, as well.
