Gypsy





We are very happy for this girl. She has found a home very suited to her. It's a busy place, she has children and they all just love her. They are committed to working with her.

We are sure this will be Gypsy's forever home.

This was her story:

We need a very special foster home for this very special girl.

Gypsy needs someone who is willing to commit to her since she has great anxiety about many things. She will need to be on anti-anxiety medication until she is back to her old self, at least, we hope she will be.

She needs a home with absolutely no pets in it. She needs to live somewhere where there are very few if any dogs/cats in the area. Ideally, a home in the country with a securely fenced yard or pen and walks on leash in the yard will do fine. This may all be temporary until she overcomes her anxieties.

In her previous foster's home, when they would leave, she would go downstairs and pee in the laundry room. Crate-training might be the answer to this but, again, that will take some time and patience. It will keep her safe and secure when you are not home.

She might do well with younger retired people who will be home with her. If there are children, they must be older children.

She needs a family who is willing to work with her anxieties. Someone who has the patience and time. At first, like any rescue dog, she seems pretty well-behaved. Once she settles in, however, she becomes anxious. We don’t know what happened to her.

Gypsy came to us as a rescue and was without anxieties at that time. She was in foster for about three months. She was, then, adopted out to a family for two years where she did well. And, then, there was a move, and we lost track of her. She came back to us last fall. She was adopted out, again, but came back after a few months because she would go after any dogs she saw. She, again, went into a foster-to-adopt situation but she went after the cat after a few weeks and came back to us.

She is about seven years old. She is a lovely girl and loves people. She needs someone who will give her as much time as she needs to settle in. We think this sweetheart is very special and deserves a chance to be with the right family. We will engage a positive-reinforcement trainer to go into help her foster family learn to work with her.

She doesn’t sound like a great catch from this profile but we are telling it like it is. She has our hearts. She is very sweet, and just needs someone who is willing to give her time. She will give you unconditional love in return. Note that her coat has grown back since these photos were taken. Sadly, she had been shaven along the way. Never shave double-coated dogs.

If you think you are a good match and are interested in fostering Gypsy, please contact Dr. Carol Graham at 519.853.3005 or 519.855.6439. Please leave a message and she will get back to you.

If you decide, after speaking with Dr. Graham, that you would like to take on this challenge, please complete the foster application:
