Gigi loves to socialize, and she gets along well with other dogs. She's vaccinated and spayed. She's already house-trained and crate-trained. Gigi is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.

From Gigi's current caretaker:

GiGi was surrendered to a kill shelter by the only family she'd known after giving them lots of puppies. She is great on leash, loves to take walks and has fun playing with other dogs. When we brought her to the shelter, she had to have a large abdominal tumor removed. We don't know how long she has, but we seek a loving hospice foster where she can enjoy the rest of her days in peace, love and comfort.

If you seek a constant companion with soft silky fur, I'm your girl! I'm a classic 10+ year-old-model, but you wouldn’t know it from my spirit and the spark in my step. I'm on the sensitive side: I yelp or cry when people speak harshly, move too quickly or pet me too rough. At night, I prefer your bed over a crate. I'm looking forward to finding a patient, loving family that will be devoted to me.

My foster mom nicknamed me Big 'Ole Luv Pug, because I'm a fan of snuggle buddies. I'd make a great addition to your other dogs if they like to snuggle.
