In October of 2010, we adopted our girl, Gia the Rottweiler, who is currently 2 years old. Before becoming a member of our family, Gia was kept mostly chained up outside and she suffered from open wounds on her ears due to infestations and neglect. She was scared and shy at first; it took two days and a few hot dogs until she became comfortable going up and down the stairs! However, one year later she has become the center of our universe. Gia loves playing tug and 'keep-away', chewing on bones while getting her belly rubbed, snuggling up with her mama and daddy, and meeting new people and puppies. She is the most adorable, loving, and happy dog in the world...we cannot imagine our lives without her.
