About Gemma

 

URGENT!! Adopter needed!

Meet Gemma!  Gemma is a 1 ½ year old pit bull mix. Gemma has not had the life she deserves and wants to find her furever home. Gemma's former owner abused her by beating her and at one point punched her in the face and knocked out some teeth. Gemma knows sit, stay, down, heal.  Gemma walks well on a leash.  She loves to play fetch and brings the ball back for more throws.  Gemma wants a family who will take her out of runs/walks and play or lay with her on the floor and give belly rubs.  Gemma would do best in a home where she is the only dog and would be shown what it is to be loved.  Children over 12 are recommended.  Gemma is fully vetted, up to date on all her shots, spayed, house and crate trained.  She weighs approximately 50lbs. Only serious applicants need apply.

If you are her knight in shining armor please go to our website at charliescrusaders.org and fill out our adoption application.

Meet Diesel! Diesel is a 2.5-year-old sweet dog with similarities to a Pit Bull. Diesel was originally an owner surrender due to a life change requiring a move. The person was going to have his sister, Princess, and her euthanized until his dog sitter stepped in and convinced her to surrender them.  Both have been in a foster home since December 8th. Per Diesel’s foster “He absolutely loves to cuddle, and tries be up in my lap with his face in mine, which is reminiscent of excited jumping behavior, which I try to correct by having him sit next to me, and he will then try to burrow under my legs, so I think he would be happy in any spot of the cuddle puddle, as long as he’s in it. His favorite toys are balls, he loves to chase them and I’ve been trying to teach fetch using the word “back” when I throw something. He brings the ball right over, and accepts praise for being such a smart boy, but he would much rather wander off and chew on it for a while. He is just barely getting the idea of the “release” command and will sort of turn his head up to present the ball but doesn’t let go until I start taking it from him. He also loves chasing and chewing on sticks, Kongs, and beef bones. I have only given him the beef bones when he is alone and won’t be disturbed, as a precaution. I also have his food and water bowls on a raised stand and haven’t witnessed any aggression. I have trained him to sit and wait in the doorway to my laundry room while I fill the food and water bowls, switch a load of laundry and do what I need to do to get everything ready for him before I tell him that it is “okay” to go ahead and eat. He does wait like an angel, but I will admit he is like a bull in a china shop running to the bowl, and he does eat fast.  I have been working on him with diverting his attention while he’s eating, just by calling him to come over to me for skritches, then going back to the food, and he is doing much better. He will also sit and wait in his crate with the door open while I open the door to go outside, walk outside myself first and then wait for an “okay” to be released.  He does fine in the car, but he wants to be in your lap, so I put a barrier up between my front and back seats. In addition to working on fetch/release, he knows sit (holding your right index finger pointed up), lay down (swoop your hand from the upright finger in a downward motion until your whole hand is flat, palm facing the ground), and wait (hand in front of you, palm facing him). He’s getting better at walking on a leash but does still pull a little. I usually use a short leash, with a harness that clips in the front and hold it behind my back so that his shoulder is just behind my thigh, so he is learning to heel and keeps improving.” Diesel has not been around children or cats. Diesel is up to date on his shots, neutered, house broken, and crate trained.
