UPDATE:  Sunday, September 20th, 2015.  I went to my forever home this morning!!!  I LOVE my new sisters and I have a huge fenced in yard to run around in!!  Thank you Kenway's Cause!


Hi, my name is Gertie and I am about 10 months old.  I was saved on my last day at the Hartford Shelter.  My Foster Mom says that I am SUPER sweet.  I really love to cuddle and give kisses - my favorite place to be is in a person's lap!  I enjoy being outdoors and going for walks, I'm a curious little pup!  I am working on my commands and potty training and I'm so lucky because I get to go to work with my Foster Mom (although sometimes I'm bored because she can't pet me constantly while she's working!).  I live with another dog that was saved from the Hartford Shelter.  We are great playmates!  I can be a bit dominant when playing so I would need to find a home with another dog that didn't mind that - I sure do love to play!  What more can I say about myself?  Look at my face - that should say it all!

Gertie is vaccinated, tested negative for lyme/heartworm and will be spayed.  Her adoption fee is $250.00.  Please email for an application.  Home visit required.
