Hiya, I am Gaylene. I would love to tell you more about me so that you can get to know me a bit better. I used to live outside a shopping centre, the grass was my bed and the shrubs was my kennel. Not ideal, I know. Problem back then was that I really didnt trust people so I wouldn’t let them help me. Luckily team Dogtown has a “persistence beats resistance” attitude when it comes to saving us furkids and they pulled out all the stops to get me to safety.

I am still shy around strangers but I warm up quickly, I sometimes just need a minute or 2 to get to know you. I enjoy being brushed and I love going for walks, I don’t pull so it’s a great outing for everybody. I am also super clever and teaching me something is as easy as pie. I get along with most dogs but I do favour the boys 🙂 I enjoy lounging on my hound sleeper while watching the world go by.

I really don’t like water, so rub-a-dub-dub is definitely not for me. I also get really scared when I am confined and I really don’t like it 🙁

My ideal family would be a gentle, understanding family who will allow me to find my feet as I might take a bit of time to get used to being “home”. I would love to have a fur-sibling to keep me company during the day. I don’t mind older kids either so if you have some not-so-tiny humans,  that’s ok by me 🙂

Please come and meet me, I am as beautiful on the inside as I am on the outside … all I want to do is love and be loved in return.
