Special Criteria

Gabby loves everybody and is very sweet. She loves going on adventures where she can run, play and splash around in water. Born in 2016, she is full of energy and would make an excellent adventure partner. She's also great with every person she meets at the Sanctuary.
Gabby has jumped fences up to five feet high in the past. In her previous home, a small apartment, she became dog reactive on leash and would pull to get to the dogs. Gabby has not shown that behavior at the Sanctuary, since she has plenty of outlets for her energy. Her behavior improves greatly when she's had some time to run and blow off steam. She does like other dogs but does not meet them well on leash and needs to be introduced to them off-leash. She would do best in a home with a yard with a high fence and would probably enjoy having a doggie friend or two. She has also passed a cat test at the Sanctuary. Although Gabby can be jumpy and mouthy when she gets excited, she is very good-natured. She loves going to Dogtown's indoor training facility and to the dog park where she can run around. She is currently working on sitting nicely when greeting people and getting leashed up.
