Personality: Gemma is a playful, energetic, sweet dog but does need guidance and encouragement when meeting new people. She can be timid at first with unfamiliar faces and places. Gemma has shown discomfort with children/young teens and is required to go to a low key, experienced, adult home environment that can give her time to adjust and build up her confidence. Once she is comfortable with people, she is wiggly, playful, and very affectionate. My care has been sponsored by Kristine Mack!
History: Gemma has been house trained and done very well adjusting to an adult quiet household environment. She has struggled the most exploring outside of the home. A busy environment with lots of foot traffic, dogs, cats, etc. have been overwhelming for Gemma in the past and she may bark and pull on leash in fear. She has shown discomfort around young kids and fast movements.
Dog Skills: Participates in play group at HSSV regularly. On leash and through barriers she can get very excited at the site of other dogs. Gemma is required to go home with a confident canine role model.
Cats Skills: Will bark and pull at at the end of the leash at the site of cats.
Leash Skills: Tentative on leash at first. Once comfortable, she will pull on leash. Has walked well on a harness and gentle leader in the past. Gemma does best in a low key neighborhood environment.
Medical: Gemma has no known medical concerns and is considered healthy.
