Gem is a young and lively girl and packs bundles of energy!
Having not previously received much training, Gem has proved to be a very fast learner, and is sailing through her basics training with her main kennel carer.
Gem enjoys the company of other dogs, and regularly spends time out on group social walks with some of the other dogs in our care. We feel she may be able to live with another suitable dog pending controlled introductions here at OAS.
Gem can be a little wary of new people and situations, so she needs an owner that will continue her training and help to build her confidence. Although Gem is learning to walk nicely on a lead, she can be incredibly strong when she wants to be so new owners must be prepared to maintain her walking training and be able to
control her out and about.
Gem is a huge toy lover so is looking for a home where she is kept entertained and mentally and physically stimulated. Due to her size and liveliness we wouldn’t recommend Gem to live with children under 10 years. She may however be fine to live with dog savvy children over 10, who are confident around large dogs.
What Gem Needs from her Forever Home
Gem is a big dog so is looking for a home that has experience of large breed dogs.
As she is also a young dog, she would hugely benefit from attending training classes to further her training. This will also be a fantastic opportunity for new owners to learn more about Gem and her mannerisms in a safe and controlled environment.
Oxfordshire Animal Sanctuary has provided and continues to provide hundreds of abandoned animals with a second chance. At any one time the Sanctuary can be looking after several hundred animals. At present on site they have over 60 dogs, 90 cats and kittens plus a number of rabbits and guinea pigs.
