Pet of the week - Gigi Australian shepherd

Name: Gigi, as in fashion model Gigi Hadid, tennis doubles wiz Gigi Fernandez, and Canadian youtube sensation Gigi Gorgeous.

Birthdate: December 4, 2016. I've just entered my salad years, and from my svelte figure it looks like I'm quite the salad gal. Except I'm partial to regular meaty dog food. And dog biscuits. And other treats. And tummy rubs. And a couch to sit next to you.

Ethnicity: I'm a Shepherd and Australian Shepherd mix girly-girl. Here's my deal: I'm very energetic and love to play, play, play. I know a bunch of commands like sit, and stay and fetch and other puppy school drills. I'm learning how to walk on a leash.

Since I'm lean and in great shape, maybe a home with children over 11 would be better. My former owner (boo!) brought me to Citizens for Animal Protection because he didn't have time to take care of a dog. But you sound just right, so let's do it!

Come and get me: I'm available for adoption at 11 am Friday, March 29 at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Freeway; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken sent me."
