Energy Level 3

Energy Level 3 - Enjoys walks, mental stimulation, and some playtime.

Hi I’m Gertie and I’m a black lab mix about 2 years old and weigh about 60 lbs.

Click here, here, and here to see me in foster care!

I was so excited to come north and meet my foster family. I met lots of new people and pups at transport and my tail was wagging nonstop. I’ve been pottying outside and go in the crate with special treats. I’m not used to walking on a leash so I do pull a little but with practice I’ll get better. I love cuddling and will lay on you. I love being petted and sometimes I have to paw my foster mom so she continues to pet me. I am pretty low key and happy going for walks and I’ll play a little with my foster sisters. My wish is for me to be with my own family for Christmas. Please think about adopting me.

Gertie is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. Gertie is currently being fostered in Frederick, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
