Brief description: This beautiful girl is Gigi.  She was dumped at no fault of her own back in July by her family that brought her home as a puppy. She deserves nothing more than to finally find her perfect furever home! 

Gigi is a 2yr old mastiff, spayed, UTD on vaccines and good with kids.  She came from a
home with 2 other dogs and got along just fine with them but with all she’s been through these past few months she’s been difficult to introduce to new dogs. She’s an absolute sweetheart and loves her people so she would be great as an only dog.  Gigi had severe cherry eyes that was never treated by her previous owners.  She had corrective surgery on 9/11/23 but one of them had already popped back out so she had another surgery at Cheat Lake on 10/9/23 to completely remove the glands.  Eyes are looking so much better now, and you can finally see how beautiful they are! 

She does still need to put on a few more pounds...she is about 105lbs but 
should be closer to 115-120lbs.


Likes: BEING AROUND HER PERSON/PEOPLE!, food and unlimited butt scratches

Dislikes: Until she has time to fully decompress and recover from the roller coaster of a ride she’s been on, she’s not a huge fan of other dogs and being left alone.

Personality: Sweet, loving, friendly

Temperament: Lovable, loyal, quirky
 

Energy level: Low/laid back

Favorite activities: Being right next to her person, snuggling in bed, getting treats and running off her zoomies outside

Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?: Good with kids

Not good with: Cats (at this moment)

Housetrained: Yes

Crate trained: She was never introduced to a crate with her original owners so it’s something she needs to get more comfortable with

Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)? Gigi would love a physical fence

Walks well on a leash? Gigi was never on a leash prior to her being dumped but she’s doing well…could use more working with not pulling.

Challenges: Her anxiety when left alone. Since being dumped she stresses over people leaving her. She spent almost three weeks on the run in the heat of summer after being dumped, then went into a temporary foster home where she recovered from her first surgery, then had to be boarded for two weeks, followed by her second surgery and then a new foster home. She hasn’t been able to catch a break and given the opportunity to fully recover and trust again. If left out in the house she will scrape on doors, pull down blinds and get into random things. A heavy duty metal crate was purchased for her and will follow her to her furever home. She does get somewhat anxious in the crate as well but with time should get better.

Any Medical issues? Healthy other than the cherry eyes that were recently corrected. There is a
possibility that she may need artificial tear drops down the road if her eye ever become too dry.

What would be the best kind of home? Gigi’s ideal home would be one where her person or people are home most of the time, fenced in yard for her to freely run around in and the only pet.
