About Gretel

  • Status: Available for Adoption (adoption info)
  • Species: Dog
  • General Color: Tan
  • Current Age: 11 Years 8 Months (best estimate)

Our little old woman Gretel came from a hoarding case that was so traumatizing she has never quite gotten over it. She and a sibling or daughter both had multiple softball size hernias on their bellies, all repaired now. She used to be unapproachable, now she runs up for cuddles. She  has a cute little bowlegged strut and  loves to tell all the dogs she is the boss. 

Gretel will always be shy of strangers and is still terrified of children - she barks at them and hides. She doesn’t like to be picked up unless it’s on her terms. Some say she will neverrrrr get adopted, but we know there are good people out there looking to give dogs like Gretel the life they always deserved. 

She would do well in a quiet home with no scary children and she definitely loves/needs the comfort of another dog or two. Her human needs to just let her be her and she will thrive. She has done so much healing over the years - physically and emotionally. Now it’s her turn to enjoy her golden years in her own home. See her adoption page here:
