Gabby is a two-year-old Rat Terrier mix, approx. 40 lbs. She is spayed; up-to-date on all vaccines, inc. 2015 rabies shot; house-trained; current on hw preventative; gets along with other dogs. Will chase birds, squirrels, and rabbits; unsure whether cat-friendly. Requires secure back yard, such as a privacy fence - can dig if bored (typical of terrier breed). Loves peanut butter treats and Nylabones and to her credit, does not grab dog biscuits when offered; also, she loves to chew on her blankies, as though they were pacifiers! Regarding crating, she isn't exactly fond of crates but if the door is open to a crate, she may or may not enter.
Gabby is very affectionate - she "thinks she's a small dog" - loves to jump in your lap! In other words, she craves attention. She is leash-trained and enjoys walks; tends to pull in the beginning, then paces herself.

Gabby is a delightful, medium-sized, energetic dog. She would most likely do well with older children (because she is so enthusiastic, she could possibly knock over a younger child). She enjoys both canned- and dry-food diet. She doesn't especially like water or being bathed.
Gabby will "sit" on command. True to form, she tends to be a bit independent but usually comes when her name is called. She likes to play ball but doesn't always fetch. Dog sweaters she tolerates well but last winter was playing with a bigger dog and the jacket fell to pieces during playtime!
Gabby bonds quickly and thrives on being part of a family. She will give of herself as a lifelong companion.

You must complete an application before being able to visit a dog. If you expect to leave the dog alone for long periods of time, please do not consider adopting a puppy. Puppies need lots of attention and companionship.
Upon interest in one of our dogs, please send an email inquiry to and tell a little bit about your family, an adoption application will be sent to you. A complete application is reguired before a meet-n-greet or home visit by us with the dog to ascertain the fit between dog and family. Meet-n-Greets are by appointment only. Please note that we require you to be age 21 or older to adopt a dog.
Vet references and a home visit required. I am an indoor dog with outdoor privileges. All of our dogs are house & crate trained. Homes with fenced in yards are preferred. All our pets are spayed/neutered, and up to date on their shots prior to adoption. Adoption fee of $185 goes towards the cost of care for this pet and future animals we rescue.
