Gigi is a very happy girl with boundless energy. She absolutely loves to play fetch with tennis balls, and brings them right back to you, over and over again. She doesn't chew things up, and takes treats gently. She is not really a barker, unless you are taking too long to throw the ball for her.
Gigi sometimes jumps on people when she is excited, so she may be too much for a household with very young children. She did bark and also pull hard on the leash when introduced to cats, so it is believed that she will not do well with them. She has done all right with brief interactions with some other dogs, but more assessment needs to be done.
Gigi's foster mom had her DNA tested and she is
37.5% American Staffordshire Terrier
12.5% Siberian Husky
12.5% Labrador Retriever
12.5% French Bulldog
12.5% German Shorthaired Pointer

All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
