My name is Gurtie and I was found roaming the streets in Palmetto, Florida, in February and was soon after taken in by a foster family that was temporarily living in Florida. I immediately stole their hearts with my wittiness and affection, and when it was time for them to leave Florida they couldn’t bear to take me back to the shelter, so they drove me 1,200 miles to Austin where I was taken in by New Hope Animal Rescue. I am currently fostered with other dogs.
From her foster parents:
Gurtie has a heart of gold and falls in love with every human she meets. She is 7 years, weighs 52 pounds and is spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations. She loves butt scratches, hunting for geckos, paddleboarding, going for long walks/runs and car rides, and her very favorite thing is evening couch cuddles on any belly she can find. Very smart and food-motivated, she picked up commands like “sit,” “shake,” “lay down,” and “stay” in no time. She’s also getting very good about and asking permission to do things via eye contact. She is honestly such a sweet, funny girl with so much love to give and we couldn’t let that go to waste. She is going to make someone very happy.
