Gissa was being kept in poor conditions when the Mexican shelter owner found her and took her in. She had multiple injuries that could have been done by a car or by abuse, it’s hard to say which. She has spent two years at the shelter before coming to Canada to find her forever home.
Loves her walks and walks well on leash. Foster is working on her reactivity on walks. Per her foster, Gissa is a very pleasant, loveable girl who just wants to be with her person. She’s very friendly with people and other dogs.
Both crate and housetrained, Gissa is such a good girl. She tends to do her business more on walks rather than the yard.
Gissa is very low maintenance and likes to go for walks and nap. If she had another dog to play with, she may be more playful.
She does like to be left alone when doing her own thing or napping.
Overall, Gissa would make a wonderful companion. A lower energy household would probably be best for this girl!

Why We Love Fostering
I love fostering because I get to change the lives of the dogs I welcome into my home. I get to treat them like my own while knowing they get a chance at a great life. It feels great to be able to provide them with a stepping stone towards their new life with a new family and new friends. Even when they go, I never feel sadness. I only feel happiness because I know they will be loved as much as i loved them. (For Kappy: Though your time was short with me, you inspired me to help other dogs. )
