Gigi is a very sweet little girl and a bit of a favourite at The ARK. She suffers from a rare kind of pancreatic disease that prevents her from being able to easily digest the nutrition that she needs in order to gain weight and stay healthy. She needs to eat about three times more than a dog twice her size, and she needs regular trips to the vet and expensive supplements and medicine just to keep her alive.
But Gigi is happy. Apart from her food, which she loves more than anything, she enjoys being stroked, sunbathing, and going for walks (with lots of rests along the way). Because of her condition and the difficulties it creates in caring for her, Gigi is unlikely to ever be adopted into a loving home—and that’s OK, because she’s really not a companion-animal kind of dog. The ARK, and the environment and care she gets here, is perfect for Gigi, and she clearly loves being here.
She’s a very special little lady, and we love her zest for life despite the daily challenges she faces. She may not make a great pet any time soon, but she is certainly deserving of your sponsorship and will always have interesting updates to share.
