Hi y'all! Gypsy here! My life has been a bit of an adventure; not always happy adventures, but I am finding my way now with a little help from my friends. I was wandering south Georgia when I was picked up by animal control. I was hungry and tired. Being on my own was hard and finding food was difficult. Anyhow I was rescued off the streets and ended up in a shelter. At least I was safe when Hurricane Irma came through! PointerRescue Org found me and sent me to a great foster home. It is great to have my own place to sleep (although I enjoy sleeping in the couch) and regular meals and a regular routine.

When I was first found, I was called Ginger. My foster family thought I was more of a Gypsy. Yeah, that says something about my former life. I kind of like that. It sort of gives me a mysterious aura, don't ya think? They call me G-G a lot now. They also call me Princess (Yeah, I have that royal look as well!) Did you hear me? What? Oh, wait. You can hear me bark for my dinner. I just can't hear you… not very well.

Anyhow, my foster family has been taking good take of me. They helped me gain weight and get rid of some nasty things called heartworms. I just got the OK find my forever home and I am ready! Are you ready for me? Love y'all! Gypsy aka G-G aka Princess aka LookingForLove!

Gypsy (G-G) was found as a stray and emaciated. She is estimated to be about 8-10 years old. G-G was heartworm positive just finished treatment and was declared heartworm free. However, her heart was affected by the heartworms and she is on medicine to help her. In spite of the setbacks in her life, she has a happy wagging tail and expressions that will melt the coldest heart. She will run the backyard with reckless abandon! She has done well with her foster brother and sisters and is outgoing with everyone she meets. She loves to snuggle and is not shy about crawling up in your lap! Gypsy has significant hearing loss and her foster family is working on adjusting her training. She is an intelligent girl with a hopeful future.

Gypsy has experienced some complications from her heartworm treatment and is currently on medical hold. Donations gratefully accepted to help cover her care at Support Pointer Rescue
