Hi there, I am Gillian. A big name for a big girl :) If I had to describe myself, I would say that I am a soft natured girl who loves people and even though my previous family didnt take good care of me, I trust people :) I was not in a good way when I arrived at Dogtown :( My previous family let me sleep on cold cement so I have lots calluses. Sadly I think those are here to stay but the days of cold cement and scavenging for food are behind me. Let’s not dwell on that :)

I love food and pretty much any chewy. I’ve been told I have no personal space because I like to sit on my human’s lap… I really don’t see what the problem is with that :) I love going out for walks but I need to warn you, I’m a big girl and I am am quite strong so I need a strong person to walk with me please :)

My perfect home would be one where I can be around my family and be loved as much as I love them. I need a daily dash of fly-ointment on my ears, for some reason those pesky flies really like me.  My perfect home would also be one without cats please ….. yuk. No cats for me thank you :) Probably a home with older kids too, I am a bit of a “bull in a china shop”. I am not sure how I feel about other dogs as yet but the humans at Dogtown are taking it slow and allowing me to settle in before I live with other dogs. For now, I guess I would love to be an only child so I can be spoiled and treated like the “big princess” I am :)

Please come meet me?
