Please meet Gem! Gem is a wiggly, happy and friendly girl. She came to our shelter after having puppies (her puppies have all been adopted). Gem also needed hip surgery which we took care of. While recovering from hip surgery, she lived in a foster home with cats and chickens. Gem can be shy at first when meeting new people, but she warms up quickly. She loves going for walks and is very affectionate. If you would like to meet Gem, please contact the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society / D.A.W.G. by email or call 805-688-8224.
