Gypsy came to BRLA in 2016. She had an old injury, likely hit by a car at a very young age and the surgical repair was not done correctly to allow for growth. She ended up with her back left leg shorter than the others. This peg leg does not slow Gypsy down one bit. She defies all odds and does anything and everything she wants to. When she is at full speed run you can hardly tell she has a shorter leg.
Gypsy was adopted last year to a very special repeat adopter who has a soft spot for the special ones. He had many challenges in his life and little Gypsy was perfectly imperfect to her loving dad. He started experiencing health issues and sadly and suddenly passed away. Gypsy had been his reason to get up every day and she now needs a new home.
She came to BRLA very social with other dogs and of course is awesome with people. She is the absolute best kisser. After a year of living with her dad who experienced many medical challenges she became a bit protective of him when it comes to other dogs. He also spoiled her a little too much. Now that her life has been turned completely upside down she is going to need some time to re-boot her life and regain her confidence around other dogs. She had some large dog friends. When she was over at her grandmas house, Gypsy got along fine with her cat. She would sometimes get frisky but never aggressive to the pussycat.
We owe it to her dad to find Gypsy a home where she can run, get lots of love and find a new balace and happiness in life again. He is watching from above and cheering Gypsy on.
