Gevalia has the most beautiful eyes you've ever seen


Foster Home Feedback 

8/26/23 Foster Feedback: The first thing you might notice about Gevalia is her ears. She has huge, gorgeous ears that give her such a cute and unique look! Funnily enough though, she doesn't show off her ears too often. Every time she sees me or my husband she tucks them and comes running to snuggle up against us! Maybe she tucks them in for better speed?

Gevalia is a huge lover and is very happy to cuddle in my lap, or if that's not available at the moment, to lean against my leg. Most mornings when I let her out she HAS to snuggle with me first, before she does her first potty, just to make sure she is still going to be loved today!

Gevalia was found as a stray with her siblings and was pretty skinny when she first arrived in my home. As a result of having to scrounge for her food to stay alive, she does have some resource guarding over her food and sometimes water (but not toys). I've been feeding her and her siblings separately and making sure that she has plenty of food to let her know that she won't ever have to scrounge for food again, and I've seen her guarding lessen significantly. Still, potential adopters with other pets should be aware of her resource guarding history and continue to feed her separately. She does well in her kennel and her potty training is going very well, too. She has never had an accident in her kennel and although she does not get free rein of the house, she always potties in appropriate places in the yard.

This petite baby has a HUGE heart and so much love to give. Come meet her!
