My name is Gabe!
Facts about Gabe
- Breed: Plott Hound Mix
- Color: Brindle
- Age: Young
- Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
- Sex: Male
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
The chitter chatter on the street is that Uncle Dave's is the place to be - for those that don't know who Uncle Dave is, he is a very special volunteer at Lake Haven - some call him the "dog whisper". He is very calm and very patient with dogs, like me, that will need some work.
I have quite a story to tell. I was one of the 50+ dogs confiscated from a hoarding situation. As you can see, I was nearly starved to death, I mean, I heard the chimes of doggy heaven faintly ringing and I was pulled from living in filth just in the nick of time.
I guess I looked worse than I do now, I have been at another shelter for almost 6 weeks so I have a long long road to recovery and I can finally relax and not have to worry about being hungry or hurt. The digs at Lake Haven are beyond awesome...play area, warm comfy beds, lots of TLC, good food and treats and TOYS oh how I love me some toys.
PROGRESS UPDATE: Gabe is an awesome dog - loving, friendly and just wants to play. Look at the 3rd photo - that is Gabe when we first got him and the other 2 photos are of him in his current condition - getting his weight back on and feeling better - all thanks to his wonderful foster Dad!
~~All of the dogs at Lake Haven have been tested for heartworm, are up to date on vaccines and started on flea and tick prevention. If they are not already spayed or neutered a voucher will be provided at the time of adoption to cover the cost of the spay/neuter surgery. ~~If you're interested in bringing this wonderful dog into your home and making it part of your family please complete an online application at: www.lakehavenrescue.org. Most of the dogs that are available will be at the Petsmart in Grandville, on the 1st three Saturdays of each month. Dogs and puppies can be seen on days other than Saturdays with an approved application
