Gemma Needs a Home

About Gemma

My Name is… Gemma

I am… 4 Months Old

I come from… Italy

I am… Dog friendly


We sometimes take in dogs from a rescue in Italy as we feel that we can offer these dogs a loving home here in the UK, where the dogs chances of finding homes in Italy are slim.

Gemma will be arriving with us on Tuesday 6th August and will be looking for a foster/forever home.


As Gemma has not arrived with us yet, we cannot give too many details about her. Some of these dogs that come from Italy are very shy to begin with when meeting new people, we have no idea about their background and what may have happened to them previously!

Gemma will be able to be placed in a home with other dogs and will prefer to be in a quieter household as she will have a lot of changes to adapt and adjust too! She could be rehomed with children, however we ask that any children in the home are mature enough to understand Gemma’s needs if she is nervous.

A patient and understanding home will be perfect for Gemma.

We will have more information on her when she is here.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.
