Meet Gertie, a 4(ish) year old Shar Pei mix. This girl loves adventure and would be a great hiking, or walking buddy. While Gertie can still get up and go, she is just as happy cuddling on the couch and watching movies at home. She really is the perfect combination of fun-loving family dog and couch potato! She will rest her head on you and give you gentle kisses when on the couch at home.
Gertie does need a yard with a secure fence as she can get a little curious when she catches onto a smell and wants to investigate! She is very loyal to her family once acclimated and can be wary of strangers, but that may just be the Shar Pei talking. Treats and a little understanding usually win her over pretty quickly. Gertie is dog friendly but does not tolerate young, high energy dogs. She would do best as either an only dog or with an older dog who doesn’t want to constantly play and get in her face, she would do best with older children as well.
Gertie is a gentle, loving soul and would be a wonderful addition to someone’s family. Someone with Shar Pei experience would easily be able to handle Miss Gertie’s ‘quirks’. She was heartworm positive and is being treated.
Gertie is UTD on shots, preventative, micro-chipped, and spayed!
Gertie’s adoption fee is $250, and adopters must live within 175 miles of the Quad City Area.
