Now living happily in New Jersey.
Gemma had a rough start in life. Nobody took care of her and made sure she was safe and healthy. Whomever she belonged to did not take the time or make the effort worthy of such a dear dog. When she was rescued from a rural area after being abandoned, she was heartworm positive, practically starving, and in immediate need of medical attention and tender loving care. The heartworm disease has been irradicated, and Gemma is now a seriously cute little poot with a renewed sense of well being. She has shown herself to be quite the party girl after all those weeks of being still while she recovered. She is discovering all sorts of new things to do and new places to explore. She is thriving on all of this awesome attention and has been promised that from now on, she will get all of it that she needs. That, and a whole bunch of love.
