“Hi there! My name is Gaia. I am only 8.5 years old. I am a young senior! My human would tell you I am the best girl. She is unable to keep me due to her own health though she has really tried but now she knows she should find me a home where I can stay forever.

“I am a dachshund mix. I weigh 22 pounds. I would enjoy a home where I can get out more. I haven’t been out for many walks lately so now when I do, I get really excited and I pull. Maybe daily walks and a harness could help me walk with better manners? I’m really smart so I bet I could learn!

“My person will tell you I’m not much of a barker. I can do stairs better than my person can! While I’ve not had to stay long hours in a crate, I can manage in one when you have to leave the house. I am housetrained but always remember a dog needs to learn where to potty when we move. I’m going to guess I’ll learn quickly! I want to please my people and maybe in doing so, I’ll get to sleep in the bed with them?

“While I’ve never lived with another dog in the past 7 years, I am usually friendly with them if they are friendly with me. Maybe it’d be nice to have a doggy companion? We could hang out, go for walks, play together? I like kids-they can be fun as long as they aren’t rough, no one wants that! Cats are a deal breaker for me, I like to chase them just as I will a squirrel!

“I’m going to miss my person. She has been so good for me, taking me to the vet once a year for check ups or whenever I need to go. It’s important to do that for us dogs so that we can be comfortable and stay healthy. I have been lucky to be so loved and hope I can find someone who will love me and care for me as she has.”
