if you frequent our adopt a lovey wednesday posts, you’ll already recognize this sweet face of miss gertie gertrude, who we originally featured in march. because she is a senior + a pit bull, gertie has been at the LANGLEY ANIMAL PROTECTION SOCIETY for 250 days. now that is just poo. yup. poo.
who are we to not help + love the elderly? i think i can speak for all of us when i say that we certainly wouldn’t want the world to turn it’s back on us when we get old. another thing to consider is that an older dog like gert is calmer, requires less energy + ‘work’ and makes a perfect cuddle bug. check out more bonuses on adopting a senior here. in regards to her breed, just another pile of poo. breed stereotypes are exactly that.. stereotypes. which are misleading, discriminatory, hurtful and plainly, incorrect. and if anyone is evidence of this it’s gertie.
she came in as a stray, clearly forgotten for a long time as she was severely overweight, with nails so long she could barely walk. but gertie has only shown grace + love to everyone around her. as a natural human lover, she really wants to be out of the shelter, at a home of her own. she will be your shadow, your cuddler, your co-pilot when driving, your confidant, your BFF. gertie is a gentle, easy going girl and could even go to a home with a confident cat. however, she does prefer the company of humans and will require to be an only dog.
for more information on gertie, please speak to her amazing trainers at LAPS: 604-857-5055. if adopting gert is something you simply can’t do, please help this darling get the home she deserves by sharing her with everyone you know. :)
