Gypsy is a high energy, loving, people-oriented 9-year-old Akita/Boxer mix. She enjoys being pet, playing tug, fetch, and just generally being around you ready to cuddle and snort like a pig at a moment’s notice. Always up for a walk and an excellent car rider, she would be great for an avid hiker. She knows basic commands like sit and stay and does well on a leash. Adopted twice in the past and through no fault of her own returned to us both times, she is ready for her forever home. We have observed that she is selective about which dogs she will play with; we are unsure how she is with cats. A home with older children would be best due to her energy levels and eagerness. Originally coming to us as a stray in 2015, we found out she had heartworm and promptly began treatment. Expected to live a long and healthy life after her ordeal, she must remain on a regular heartworm prevention schedule. Meet Gypsy to see if she would be the right fit for your home.
