she came in as a stray but clearly was someone’s forgotten couch potato. sweet gertrude, the senior pit bull arrived to the langley animal protection society severely overweight at 100 lbs. with nails so long, they curled under and she could barely walk. nobody ever claimed this darling so now she is on a diet, with a fresh mani/pedi, awaiting someone to love for her remaining years.
when trav + i first met gertrude in the play yard, her intentions with us were made obvious.. get the lovin’ + get the food. gertrude, otherwise known as gertie or gert, shadowed us around the yard, giving kisses, batting her soulful doll eyes + adorable scruff. *cough* we may have assisted in her cheating her diet *cough* ..but how do you say no to a face like that?! AND THE CUDDLES?!
gertrude is thought to be a 10 year old pit bull. she enjoys car rides, affection and teddy bears. she is a gentle, easy going girl and could even go to a home with a confident cat (no other dogs, please). for more information on gertie, please speak to her awesome trainer, amy at LAPS: 604-857-5055. if adopting gertrude is something you simply can’t do, perhaps you wouldn’t mind sharing this sweet pea so that the right home can. :)
