Please take the time to read the entire profile. We spend alot of time putting as much info in them as possible. Thank you in advance.
Gabby is a darling Dogo girl although we were told that she is pure bred, she looks like there could be some english bulldog in there as she is much smaller then the average dogo and she is very bulldoggy. She is a stunning girl with natural tail and docked ears. Her story is tragic and we adore this girl and know she could be so much more then she has been. She is a big girl and has a heart of gold. She is a typical dogo who will do anything for her family and loves them with her whole being. She is an amazing girl and we adore her. She is not huge for her breed, she is a bit on the petite side, but she is a gem all the same. She is a stunning girl, and really thrives to please.
Gabby has a tragic story. She was turned into a high kill shelter by her owner. Most big dogs don’t make it out alive, but this shelter tries really hard to save them as best as they can. They were able to find an adopter for her. Sadly the adopter was not taking her for the long term and her room mate didn’t want the dog there. So rather then taking the dog back to the shelter where she would have a chance to find a new home she was going to dump her in a rural area. We were able to reach out to her and offer help. She advertised her on a local free site thinking she would be able to find her a home and it would be better then going into rescue. The reason why rescues work is we put hours of hard work into finding the right home. Not just the first person who wants the dog. She was able to find someone to pay her for Gabby but as soon as she handed her over she was allowed to run loose on a busy street and hit by a car. She then was going to leave her for dead! She called us and informed us if we wanted our dog we were welcome to come pick her up off the street! We rushed as fast as we could and had a good friend in the area come to her aid late at night in a bad area. We are glad we could help her, but wish it could have been done before she had been injured. She is a great girl and deserves so much more then she has had.
Gabby is a sweet girl and does well with other dogs once introduced, she does best with larger dogs as she can be pushy with small or fearful dogs. Some dogs she does great with are small, some are larger. She really picks her friends. She is a dominate girl and as most dogos are she picks her friends. She is great with people and does amazingly. She has healed well from her injuries and is back to normal again. She is great with kids and loving. She loves toys and to have a good time. She is mellow and laid back but would also love to go for walks or take a good hike. She is happy doing anything that you ask of her. She is amazing. She is a gem of a girl and we adore her we just wish that we could have gotten her before the accident. She loves to cuddle, hang out and go for rides. She is a happy silly girl who we adore and know someone will love her like we do. She is hit and miss with dogs and will need a home that can do a slow intro with other dogs and give her time to adjust.
Gabby is up to date, dewormed, flea treated, spayed and micro chipped. She is a happy healthy girl and only has some small scarring where she is still healing. She came to us really thin and is putting on some much needed weight. She is a great girl and is house broken, crate trained, knows basic commands and loves kids. She is a great girl and we could not ask for a better girl. She picks her friends but normally does well with most large dogs. She is a gem of a girl and we adore her. She is as sweet as can be and we could not ask for more from her.
We spend a lot of time trying to get to know the dogs in our program as best as we can. This means that we have spent time introducing them to dogs, cats, kids, animals, people and as many things as we can. We try to do as much as we can to evaluate them, both with in our group and if the dogs come from other rescues or shelters their evaluations as well. However dogs are individuals and will react to different situations differently. This means that we do not know how a dog will react in every situation. We give out our best guess based off information provided but the handler of a dog and the way they are introduced to a situation makes a huge impact. So if you have any questions of how to introduce a dog to your home, please let us know and we will provide as much info as we can from pamphlets to helping find a trainer in your area.
Our rescue aims to help dogs who are passed by and over looked by most rescues and people. We help the dogs who are in need of medical care, vetting, training and breeds that most will not help with. In most shelters if you are large dog, a big dog, or a male dog; from the moment you walk in you are on barrowed time. If you have docked ears or are a guardian breed your time was over before you walked in the doors. We aim to save these dogs and give them a second chance. Please help us save more lives by helping with our medical bills as they grow. This year has already been hard and we have many medical dogs in need.
