Gerty is a sweet, kind little dog who has fallen on hard times. We don't know her history for sure, but so often little dogs like this when outside or unsupervised can wander off and get lost.
If you lose a Pet, ALWAYS call Animal Control and the Humane Society to fill out a lost pet report and ALWAYS follow up and check back. Another great resource is: http://www.lostdogsillinois.org/
We are doing our best to find a home for this little girl and due to her age, she is available for a reduced adoption fee. I know many people out there have a special place in their hearts for the little senior dogs and they often can have many good years to share with you and they are so grateful to be loved, safe and cared for.
