Please say hello to Gertie! She is an 8 year old shepherd mix. Gertie is a beautiful senior soul who is not doing well at the shelter because she has been there so long!

Gertie deserves a comfy cushion and a home to enjoy her golden years. If you have ever thought of adopting a dog, this old girl really deserves a place to spend the rest of her days. Gertie is very slow and enjoys just laying around in the yard and isn’t much work at all.

Gertie is a Shelter favorite and the folks there are all very concerned for her well-being as she’s not feeling very well. Shelter staff and volunteers believe some of that is because of her age and the stress of the shelter environment. Additionally the heat is hard on Gertie. Gertie needs an adoptive home where her she will be vetted and kept cool and comfortable.

Gertie is posted for the Tri-Cities Animal Shelter and Animal Control of Pasco, WA. The shelter would love to find an adopter for Gertie but getting her at least to a foster home through the shelter would be a great help too!

For more information about Gertie and how to either adopt or foster her, please contact Cherie Jackson at: Here is Gertie’s Petango link:

This is not an ODH dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
