Gemma – Adoptable Dog of the Week

Gemma - adoptable dog of the week featured on

Gemma looks like such a sweetheart and I feel like we can really related to her! Remember when Rio needed leg surgery!? Well Gemma needed surgery on her elbow also – only the outcome wasn’t as good. Her joint never healed properly and she ended up having to have her front leg amputated. But there’s certainly nothing wrong with being a tripod (after all, if you follow Fifty, we all know that not only can a dog get along fabulous being a tripod, but with two legs)!

Here is a little more information about Gemma from Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue:

American Staffordshire Terrier & Pit Bull Terrier Mix • ~2 years old • Female • 55 lbs • Good w/ dogs with slow intros • Super Cuddler! “My name is Gemma!!! When I got rescued I had a broken elbow. The vet tried to fix it but it did not heal right. So I am now a 3 legged dog! Nicknames: My foster momma calls me a Gem! Profession: Professional Kickboxer

Age: 2 Activity Level: I am always very happy and bouncy and my tags wags so hard I’m afraid it might fall off!! What I like to do most in the world though is cuddle with foster Momma! Things I do in my free time: I love spending time with people. They make me so happy and my favorite thing to do is melt in my foster momma’€™s lap! I also enjoy chewing on bones and other toys! Things I know: I am fully house and kennel trained! I also know how to sit and mostly know my name. Kids: I have not been kid-tested yet, but I love people so much there is no doubt that I will also love kids. Dogs: I get along with other dogs, but I need a few days to get use to them. Cats: I would be best off in a house without cats. Size: I am full-grown and I probably weigh around 55 to 60 pounds.”

  1. Oh Gemma, you are just too cute! I hope you have found your forever home already, and if not, hopefully very soon!

    Sarah, nice job putting together all the information that a potential adopter would want to know. I always want to know if a dog is dog and cat friendly and if the dog is potty trained and kennel trained.

    1. Hi Lindsay,
      Thank you! Yes, those are the most common questions, after all many of us dog people have other animals as well! Thanks for commenting :).
