Gabriel is a cuddlebug who thinks he's a lapdog. While he loves playing catch and tugging a rope toy, he'd rather lean on his human friends, climb in their laps and rest his head in their hands. He also enjoys staring at himself in mirror surfaces and perfecting the puppy dog face. He is the sweetest dog with a gentle, yet bubbly spirit!

This Hurricane Harvey survivor is still a bit shy when he first meets humans, but he warms quickly, and once he's been on a walk, he decides they're his best friends. On his sleepovers, he's proved to be house-trained and even knows to ask to go outside.

Gabe also enjoys learning new things. He's in APA's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week toward the goal of passing the American Kennel Club's CGC test! He has been working hard to be a dog you can take anywhere with pride. To pass the CGC test, a dog must demonstrate obedience and general reliability in real world situations.

Dogs in APA's CGC program learn sit and down, walk nicely on leash, sit calmly when approached by strangers or another dog, won't approach people or dogs without permission, greet people appropriately, stay in a sit or down until told "free," and come when called. As part of APA's CGC program you can work with APA to continue to build a training relationship with Gabe after adoption and get officially CGC certified for free! Check out a video about CGC:

Come take this sweet boy for a walk and see how well trained he already is!
