Dog of the Week: Gidget

The lovely Gidget (A15391412) is available for adoption! She is a female pointer/terrier mix who is about 3 years old and is already spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and ready to wiggle right on into your heart!

Gidget has a white coat and the cutest orange freckles on her face. She has been working hard with her Pen Pal volunteers on manners and obedience, and is really enjoying the treats that go along with learning new things.

Gidget is a smaller gal, weighing about 35 lbs. She has the cutest wiggle and enjoys playing fetch (even if she hasn’t quite understood that she needs to bring the ball back yet! and has learned sit, watch, down and is working on stay. Gidget focuses really well and has shown her Pen Pals just how much she has going for her.
