Hi, I’m Gertie! I’m a 1 year old, female, 46 pound boxer mix! I have lots of energy and love going on walks. My foster mom is amazed how well I do on my slip leash. I’m a good listener and don’t pull or tug when we are out walking. We have very nice and relaxing walks together. There is an exception though. When I see bunnies or a squirrel I like to go try and catch them but my mom distracts with a slight tug on my leash and keeps walking.
I have learned after a slow and gradual introduction to my foster dog sister that she’s really not that bad. I enjoy being outside with her. We enjoy playing with each other and the neighbor dog and then resting and relaxing in the sun.
I enjoy when my foster mom gives me tummy rubs. They are nice, slow and calm and help me relax.
I am very sweet and love being around people, but I would probably do best in a home with older kids, because I still need some work on jumping up on them! I’m learning that I need to be calm when coming out of my crate, too! I am already house and crate trained!
I love toys, and going for car rides, and I am ready to share my love with my fur-ever family.
