A military vet in need of much-needed medical treatment needs a foster for Gia and is postponing his treatment until he finds a foster.  Gia was the owner’s mother’s dog, who passed away. The owner feels that Gia is the last connection he has with his mother and can not afford kenneling while he receives treatment.

The owner is able to transport within a 2-hour radius of Charlotte, NC.

Gia is a sweet 8-year-old Maltipoo that loves people and children. Gia is a true velcro dog who always wants to be with her owner. Gia loves to cuddle and hand out and get pet.

Gia is a quiet dog but does bark when people approach the house and knock on the door. Gia is not crate-trained and has no destructive tendencies. The owner has left her for up to 10 hours and she has never had an accident in the house. Gia normally sleeps with the owner.

Gia loves going for walks but is extremely fearful reactive, and a large berth should be given when around other animals. Gia is very fearful of loud noises and will hide during storms, fireworks, and other loud noises.

Gia is medicated daily, and the foster home should be comfortable giving her liquid medication.
