Gertrude came to the shelter as a “stray”, so her history is a mystery.  She’s estimated to be around 10 years old, but you wouldn’t know it from her energy. She still loves walks, playtime, and her dog friends.  (She can come on a little strong, she’s just so excited! But that means she’s not every dog’s cup of tea).

Gertrude is really receptive to her people and is very smart and engaged. She walks great on a leash and has so much love to give.  We have no indication of how she may do with cats, but suspect she may be a little eager for most cats. Since she has so much energy may need someone experienced with multi-dog management if they have another dog, but she may do well with another dog in her life.

Considering her age and breed, she’s active and seems healthy and happy. She has had a recent dental and some extractions. She’s available for adoption at PAWS – this sweetheart is ready for her best friend for life!

Gertrude is posted for the PAWS shelter in Lynnwood WA, 425-787-2500 x800 or x803, or

This is not an Old Dog Haven dog. We urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
