Adoptable Dog of the Week- Gypsy

Not only that this gorgeous gal is sweet as they come, but she’s also bilingual! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Gypsy, a 3.5 years old English Setter and Great Pyrenees mix from Des Moines, Iowa. She’s spayed, up to date on her shots, and housetrained. Gypsy is an active dog that’s looking for a home where she’d be the only pet. She does well with older children.


Gypsy’s Tale


If you want an energetic dog that’s always up for play, Gypsy is your girl. This mixed breed beauty weighs 60 pounds and she’s all spark and sweetness. She is very active and will need a family that will be able to keep up with her spirit. Ideally, her new home will have a big backyard with a secure fence. She enjoys spending time outside and playing fetch is one of her favorite things to do. Once Gypsy’s had enough jumping around and playing, she’ll be more than happy to curl up with you for some ear scratches and cuddles. She is sweet and very affectionate.


Another interesting thing about Gypsy is that she’s bilingual. And no, it doesn’t mean she barks in different languages, don’t be a wisecrack. She understands commands in both Spanish and English- a real overachiever. Gypsy will need a home where there are no other pets, as she’s not the best with other dogs or cats. She does well with kids, though, but only those that are over 12 years of age. It’s not that she dislikes youngsters, but her size makes it too easy for her to knock them down on accident while playing, which something everyone wants to avoid.


If you have a place in your home and in your heart for this big, beautiful doggo, contact Animal Lifeline of Iowa, Inc for more information. Gypsy is waiting for someone to give her a furever family!
