Female - 7 months old
Hello everyone, I’m Gertie! I just hitched a ride all the way from Arkansas hoping to find my forever family here in Minnesota.
A little about me - I am 6 months old and have the most beautiful brindle coat to go along with an uncontrollable wiggle butt. I just can’t contain my excitement sometimes. I am a super petite little girl, only about 25 pounds so I promise not to take up too much space. At night, I will curl up as close as I can get to you and keep you company with the softest little snores. I am the best cuddler and just as amazing at playing. I love adventure! Running, playing fetch, tug-of-war, etc. I would absolutely go bananas for a fenced in back yard if you have one. If not, that would be ok too as long as I am able to get exercise!
In my foster home, I live with two senior dogs (Boston terrier/Pugs) who are about the same size as me. One of them is very old and grouchy, however, I am so smart that I immediately noticed she wasn’t interested in playing with me, so I leave her alone. My foster parents were so proud that I picked up on that so quickly! Also, I love meeting new people but sometimes it takes me just a minute to warm up, as I can be just a little timid about new people at first. Once I know you, I’m ALL yours and will have lots of kisses to share. I’ll even let you pick me up and cradle me like a baby.
I’ve already learned how to ‘sit’ in the last two days with lots of treats which I am very motivated by. I am also very gentle when taking them from your hands so even little people can share with me. I’m still learning to communicate when I need to go outside for potty breaks, however, the good news is, I’m learning from my two foster sisters who ring the bells on the door when they want out. I’m also learning to spend time in my crate as long as I have something soft to lay on and something good to chew to keep me from getting bored. I hear them saying that I’m sure to pick up on these things very quickly with a consistent routine.
I’m really hoping to find a family who has time and patience for me, as I’m still a silly puppy learning the ropes but well on my way to being a wonderful, loyal family member. If you think you might be my person, I’d really love to meet you.
