GIGI is a beautiful girl with eyes that warm your heart!  G, as she is affectionately called by her adoring fans, started her life as a Kansas City street dog. At six months of age she survived on the streets with her mother where she was eventually caught by animal control and came to MOGS. But that is G's past, and thanks to a committed and experienced foster home, she's barely recognizable from those early days.

TEMPERAMENT

Gigi is now secure with meeting strangers and looks to her "person" for guidance. For this reason Gigi needs a dog savvy owner who will have the leadership skills necessary to recognize when she may be unsure of her surroundings.  Watching her race around and play with your other dogs will give you many hours of fun and laughs - her sheer joy in being free from worry and loving life is a delight to watch.   

Gigi is housetrained and crate trained, and even has good leash skills. She follows several verbal and hand signal commands, and loves to please her people. She's also very agile and can climb a 4' chain link fence easily. She's very curious about what's on the other side -- especially if it happens to be her person!  Because of this, a 6' privacy fence is required. 

Gigi has shown several "alerter" tendencies, and will seek out her foster mom for help for the other dogs, and especially when the water and food bowls are empty!

OTHER ANIMALS

Gigi loves her big foster brother, who is a very large GSD, and needs to have a doggy buddy in her new home to wrestle and play with! A medium-to-large male with a similar energy level will be an ideal playmate! She is selectively reactive to some dogs, and would need to be carefully tested against any new dog in an adoptive home.

Gigi has been cat tested, and basically ignores them.

CHILDREN

Gigi would do best with children 12 or older who can be respectful of their canine family members, and not try to startle or force her to do things too quickly.

MEDICAL
No known medical issues.

GiGi is looking for the perfect family to complete her rags to riches story! Could that be you? 

GIGI's ADOPTION FEE:   $200

This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit. At minimum, your adoption fee includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea preventives, and microchip. In many cases it also includes surgery and various types of vet treatment for standard issues such as hot spots, ear infections and so on.

More about Gigi

Good with Dogs

Special Needs: Patience. Time. Love. She's comfortable in her foster home, and when she transitions to her new adoptive home she WILL have an adjustment period. She may try to hide, or avoid people at first, and will need a family with big enough hearts to give her the love and patience she needs.

PLEASE READ THIS:

  1. We're picky about our adopters. 
  2. Are you sure you're up to having a GSD?  They're not for everyone.  They take a lot of time, effort, training.  They shed year round.  They're big.  They scare lots of people.  They "mouth" and herd.  They're usually strong-willed and stubborn.  You have to have references and a home visit.  If you're not willing or able to deal with any of this, please don't waste your time or ours applying.  
  3. Will the dog be an inside family pet? We do not adopt to outdoor-only homes. All dogs must be indoor dogs.
  4. Do you leave your dog outdoors when you're not home?   We do not adopt to homes that leave their animals outside when they're gone.  You must put your dogs indoors when you're gone.  A 3 yr old adopted MOGS dog died when the owners went to run errands, left her outdoors, the gate was somehow opened, and she was hit by a car.  Tragic and 100% preventable. Even privacy fences get broken into.  Gates are opened.  Thieves steal dogs. Never leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!!
  5. What's your plan for unexpected events and major changes?  New baby? Divorce?  Moving?   How you will provide for your dog if your family breaks up? 
  6. Will you make a lifetime commitment?  It's your responsibility to keep your dog safe, loved and cared for FOR LIFE.
  7.  Do you understand we expect you to keep that lifetime commitment?  It's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to stick by your family member -- no matter what.
  8. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply.
