Gem is an energetic and sparkly girl who is happiest getting rowdy and showing off her athletics. This girl has a happy-go-lucky attitude guaranteed to put you in a great mood.

Gem is searching for someone who's ready to be just as active as she is. It's a huge bonus if you're looking for a running buddy - she's happy to be a part of your running club! She's a super smart lady who is picking up on skills quickly, learning every day how to be the best girl on a leash. Gem is excited about life, and is spending her days getting rowdy with her friends in playgroups. She can sometimes be a little protective of her belongings (who can blame her?).

Gem would do best in a home where she has training and exercise - and ideally a backyard to romp around in. Since she can be pretty energetic, she would do best in a home with adults or teenagers. She also can potentially go home with a well-matched dog sibling.

This energetic, smart, super fun girl is searching for her forever people - could that be you? Come meet her today!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
