Gabs' idea of a perfect day is spending almost all of it with her human housemate, and what you're doing doesn't matter to her. Are you watching a movie? She's watching with you. Are you going for a walk? She's by your side. Are you playing with a toy? She's your playmate. Do you want to give her belly rubs? Oh boy! She'll roll right over.

This playful girl loves meeting people and greets them with her big wagging tail, almost immediately rolling over and asking for those belly rubs. She just wants their lovin'. Now in foster care, she curls up at her foster's feet while she's working and cuddles next to her when she's watching a TV movie. She's a quiet girl, and is so good if you're working from home and need to take calls or be on Zoom.

Gabs enjoys going for leash walks, usually walking next to her foster with just a little pulling. She will pull harder if she sees other dogs, but her foster is working on that with her. She had four doggie friends next door, so her foster will sometimes take her on potty break walks so they don't interact as much. She's a gentle girl. She and her foster's cat hang out and relax near each other and sometimes play. She understands "sit" and "go down," and is having fun playing fetch. She's a house-trained girl who doesn't like crates, but is free roaming the house and doing well when her foster is away.

She's a very easygoing girl who will be a fabulous family pup and should fit well in most homes. The more people she can follow, the better. Come meet her. Give her that belly rub and she'll follow you home!
