Located At: Burbank Animal Shelter
Description: My name is Gigi.
I am a spayed female, white and black Australian Shepherd.
Age: The shelter staff think I am about 1 year and 1 month old.
More Info: I have been at the shelter since Nov 18, 2021.
Gigi was relinquished by her owners because their other dog did not like her. Gigi was not socialized outside of the home like so many others due to the Pandemic. It was reported that she was okay with their older children, but only because she knew and grew up with them. Gigi should not be around small kids right now. Gigi should be adopted by a family who has had this breed or similar high energy working breeds before and knows how to come up with a exercise and training routine that she can stick too. She is VERY active and can chase a ball for hours. She needs an active owner who will run/hike her and who is aware that she will not be super outgoing with strangers. Gigi has been socialized with other shelter dogs, but we feel she should be the only dog in the household. She might do okay with a goofy male dog that lets things go, but not a high-strung dog that is easily bothered. Gigi will need some potty and house training and a easy-going owner willing to wait patiently for her to acclimate to a new home. No condos or apartments please, she needs a yard to run and play in.
