Hello world! My name is Gem, and it certainly fits - there's no other pup out there just like me! From my puppy-dog eyes and little white beard to my tail that never stops wagging, every ounce of my pittie mix body just wants to love and be loved. I have a little limp, but that doesn't stop me at all when I'm running around with other dogs, big or small!
I am learning to love my crate, and I already know how to let my humans know when I have to go outside to do my business! My ideal day centers around one thing: you. I love to be near you and see what you're up to (and if you want to pet me while you're at it, I certainly won't complain!) And I love other dogs, too! While it would be great to have a fur sibling, I'll be just fine on my own, as long as I'm able to get some exercise every day. And if you have kids, even better! I'm not a big fan of cats, though, so a home without any feline buddies would be best.
Apply so you can meet me, and see just how much of a "gem" I am!
Gem is available for pre-adoption only at this time, as she is heartworm positive. Heartworm disease is a non-contagious and treatable condition in dogs, but is fatal if left untreated.
