Gabby | Pet of the Week

By on January 12, 2018 at 2:24 pm


Gabby is a sweet girl who is very loving and enjoys giving kisses to her humans. She loves to play fetch but is a strong chewer so strong toys are a must.

Gabby learns quickly and knows how to sit, down, stay and “home,” which is going into her crate where she sleeps through the night.

She gets along with other dogs her size and kids too. This beautiful girl likes to chew ice and eat little pieces of banana.

A fenced in yard would be a plus for Gabby since she is energetic and likes to run and play.

Come meet Gabby at the shelter and make her part of your family.

Gabby is a nine-month-old pit bull terrier mix.
