Gigi's Story

Meet Gigi!  Gigi is a show stopper of a dog who wants nothing more than to find a forever family who will give her all the love she deserves!  Gigi is absolutely gorgeous and has a beautiful tan and black coat and soulful eyes that just reel you in from the very beginning!  She is a quiet girl who was originally adopted as a young puppy and returned after spending 8 months in the home when her family felt she was not a good match for their household.  Now that Gigi has found herself back at PAWS, she is doing everything she can to find the most wonderful forever home!  She is a bit slow to trusting those around her, and would benefit from having a patient adopter who will be able to help her come out of her shell.  Once she does, you will fall forever in love with her!  Gigi has a personality that can’t be beat and loves her people fiercely!  She is also super dog social and enjoys making new canine friends any chance she can get.  Gigi highly enjoys romping around with her doggy friends and is always ready for some playtime up on our rooftop deck!  Then when playtime is over, Gigi loves to get in a good snooze, especially when she has a roommate to cuddle with!  This sweet girl would be happy to have another canine companion in her forever home!  She is hoping that her perfect person is out there and will give her the chance she needs to come out of her shell and reveal the amazing dog that lies within her!

Gigi is searching for a quiet, adults-only home with an experienced owner.  Since she can be weary of strangers, she would do best in a low traffic environment where there’s not a ton of people coming in and out of the home.  Once she is comfortable with her humans, she will build a bond with them that is truly unbreakable.  Since she holds her friends close to her heart and loves them oh so dearly, she doesn’t like to be away from them for long periods of time.  She would do best with a family who is home throughout the day, so she can receive all the love and attention she craves!  You want to know what else she has a craving for?  Treats!  Gigi loves her treats so so much!  She would do just about anything to munch on a stick of Pupperoni, as that’s her favorite kind.  If it were possible, Gigi would probably do back flips as soon as you show her one!  Being highly food motivated will help Gigi with her training and motivate her to be a good girl as much as possible.  If you give this gorgeous girl a chance, she will surely reward you with years of happiness and love!  Feel like Gigi’s your perfect match?  Then you have to come and meet her!
