Fosters Needed

Foster Home Needed: Getrude

Gertrude will need to be in foster for approximately 4 months while she continues to heal from her injuries and remains under medical observation. At the conclusion of her time in foster, the foster family may choose to adopt and make her a permanent part of the family if they wish. All medical costs will be covered by HSHA during her time in foster care. Please reach out to Kristi Kleinfelter at for more information on Gertrude’s needs and/or to set up a meet and greet!

It would be ideal if she could be the only pet because she would have to be kept separate.

Ideal home: Hello! My name is Gertrude or Gertie for short. I am a senior Pit Bull mix that was brought here as a stray back in March. I came with bite wounds all over my neck, ears and hairloss. It seems that I’ve had a rough start, but am such a happy girl despite that. I love people and am so snuggly! I walk great on leash, sit so nice for treats and even enjoy dressing up! I am looking for a foster or a foster to adopt home while I am on my quarantine for the bite wounds I came in with. Hanging at the shelter for 4 months will be stressful, so I am hoping to find a place to crash. I do need a home with kids over 12 years old since I do resource guard. I do not like being bothered while enjoying a bone or while I am eating. It’s best to let me enjoy these alone or I will trade for something else! I also need a feline free home and I was pretty avoidant of the dog I met. I think being an only pet is best for me, but perhaps a dog that is calm and cool like me would do. During my quarantine, I’ll have to be kept separate from any resident dogs anyway, but the kind folks here will talk all about my needs! If you can open your home to sweet senior like me, ask to meet Gertie!
