Pet name:
Terrier, Chihuahua, Mixed
Gray, Silver, Salt & Pepper with White
Coat length:
Gem is 2-4 years old and 8.5 pounds.  Gem has a funny, silly personality and loves people.  She has been working hard on her house training and is doing pretty well.  Gem loves to get attention and while she came in with another dog, she might be happiest being an only dog with people that are around most of the time.  After a day of soaking in the love and snuggles, she puts herself to bed for the night.

Gem is just learning to walk on leash and isn't a long distance walker.  Her back legs are a bit weak; she has a low grade luxating patella, which is not uncommon in Chihuahua mixes. If you are looking for a hiking companion than Gem is probably not your gal, but if you want someone to go on leisurely strolls, and to soak in the sun with you in a local park, then she might be the one for you.

Grateful Dogs Rescue incurs substantial veterinary and other expenses in rescuing our dogs. In order to recoup some of these costs, we request a tax-deductible donation for each adoption. The suggested donation for Gem is $300.

If you are interested in adopting Gem, please complete our online adoption application at
. One of our volunteers will get back to you. Adoptions are local, confined to the SF Bay Area.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
