Gabby

This is Gabby! Gabby was taken to animal control with her brother Brody after their owner passed away. They were very scared and even after coming to Animal Friends, they are still a little nervous. She is about 5 years old and already spayed. She is housebroken and gets so excited to see us in the morning. Of course she is still nervous with new people because she has no idea what is going on or where she is. Her and her brother Brody are very in tune with each other. She is 50 pounds and we are not sure what her breed is but she is super cute!

Adopting a Pet
