Gigi was found as a stray, a good Samaritan took her in temporarily and reached out to one of our Southern rescue partners, who in turn asked PAWS New England to help find Gigi her perfect new home.
Gigi needs a home with an active lifestyle. Gigi is very sweet, playful, and very energetic, she needs a home that will take her on walks or play in the yard to get some of her energy out. Her best friend is her chicken plush toy that she loves to carry around. She plays hard and then takes a much needed rest.
Gigi would benefit from a home that has experience with her breed, she is strong and can jump very high. Gigi can scale a wire fence, so she needs either a 6 foot stockade/vinyl fence or always be on a leash in the yard. Once she has been with a new family for a while she may be more secure and not try to jump the fence.
Gigi is crated when left alone, and will whine at first but settles quickly. She is house trained, and is very scheduled with when she goes out, that really helps with training. She loves riding in a car, she loves to put her nose out the window! No car sickness for this girl.
Gigi seems to not been socialized in her past and her foster mom is doing slow introductions to the other dogs in her home. When she meets a new dog she seems to be standoffish, she does not like to be nose to nose with another dog.
If you are looking for a perfect dog to be an only dog in the home, Gigi is your girl.
GiGi is not a fan of cats, so no cats for her.
