About Gibson

Gibson or "Gibby" as some of us volunteers call her is a really lovely senior gal who finds herself back at the shelter after a long time in a home and although that's enough to make many pups really nervous and unhappy Gibby is doing pretty well and now has her friends who she greets with lots of tail wags and big smiles.
Gibby literally grew up at the shelter; she was part of a large group of dogs brought to the shelter by our Humane Law Enforcement group seized from a bad situation ....she was just a little pipsqueak but because the case took a very long time to resolve she was with us and we watched her grow and learn to love people.
Finally, she was released and adopted into a quiet home where she has spent most of her life. Sadly, she was returned a few months ago and we are now hoping to find her a final forever home. Gibby is completely house-trained and she is very good at all the commands...sit, stay, down, touch! She seems to have some fear of some strangers and new and different situations but she's learning to trust us and not be afraid. In a very short time she has also gone from not wanting to be handled to loving being petted - she butts our hands asking for us to pet her.
She is a very petite little dog ...only about 36 pounds, very feminine and very pretty in a senior gal way. Because she's older and can get startled its best that her new and final family be adults and older (15 or so) children. Gibby did not live with other dogs at her other home but she may be okay with a calm and confident dog.
If you're interested in our "Gibby Girl" please contact her special friend at the shelter - volunteer Sheila. Sheila can be reached at and she can answer questions and set up a good time for you to come and meet Gibby and spend time with her.
