Hi! My Name Is *Gertie πŸš—

I'm Available

Gertie sadly found herself in a dangerous shelter at risk many times, and her advocates were stunned by this!Β  She is young, beautiful, smart, and so so loving and sweet.Β  She LOVES people and socializing.Β  Whenever her fosters take her to the farmer's market, she is in her element with all the attention and pets she gets from strangers.Β  Gertie is JUST learning to play with other dogs, and it's amazing to watch!Β  She is currently living with a male dog about her size and is opening up to him more and more each day.Β  And when she greets dogs out in public, she is eager to say hi, but isn't aggressive reactive while on the leash.Β  But her favorite place is snuggling up next to her humans.Β  She wants to be the little spoon at bedtime and will absolutely be a pillow hog.Β  Don't say we didnt warn you!

Gertie spent about two months in a cinderblock kennel at a chaotic shelter.Β  She really craved any opportunity for affection or attention from humans, during that time.Β  Now that she is in a foster home, she's still scared of being abandoned by the ones she loves again.Β  Her fosters are working with her on her separation anxiety, and her new family should be prepared to pickup where they left off.Β  All Gertie really wants is to feel loved and secure.

Gertie is available for adoption to qualified adopters in the contiguous 48 states.Β  ABR would prefer approved applicants to come to TX to meet their match, with their family and dog(s), but we recognized this isn’t always possible.Β  In such cases, approved adopters should be willing to participate in video interviews with the entire family to meet their match virtually. Adopters must also provide a transportation plan for their new family member that will require approval from the ABR Board.Β  Β This needs to be paid for by the adopter, in addition to the dog’s adoption fee.Β  Adopters need to also be prepared arrange safe transport back to the Austin area, should adoption not work out.Β  Please be prepared to provide vet and personal references in your application for us to contact when considering your family.
