Gypsy - in Maine
Posted November 2019
This beauty is Gypsy. She is a 57 lb girl at approximately one year old and might put on a little more weight. She is thought to be a great dane mix and she is such a love! Gypsy and her brother Axel were rescued by our southern partners and they are so happy to be in Maine. They get along well with other dogs and don’t mind being crated.
Her foster mom tells us:
Gypsy is a love!!! She is sweet as can be, and it's clear she hasn't had a lot of attention or training. But she is ready to learn and please her new family! In just one week, she is responding well to house training. Taking her for a walk is fun because the leash is new- she weaves, and trips you up because she just wants to be where you are, and make sure you are happy! I am working on getting her to walk a straight line! :) She sleeps fine in the crate, and out! She doesn't love to left home alone in the crate, but has been left out and not done much damage (grabs a few socks, shoes etc...). She just doesn’t know yet what's a toy and what is not. She LOVES bones, and does well with our dog. No guarding issues, they are funny watching them try to decide who is the alpha. I have brought her into my office and everyone LOVES her. She is warm and friendly, and loves to look deeply into each human's eyes- very sweet. She loves to play, and to cuddle just as much.
We don’t have cat info yet and we haven’t seen her with very small children but she is great with older kids. She might knock over a small child just out of excitement. At first the car was new and scary but now she is doing great – same with stairs. She has great energy and will make a new family very happy!
If you have interest in meeting Gypsy or any of our cuties, please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
