Gabriel was a stray picked up by animal control in rural West Virginia. He is very friendly and playful with people, and gets along very well with the resident dogs. Gabe has a joyful spirit! At the shelter, he even let the shelter cats boss him around! :-) He is a gentle and very sweet boy. And he LOVES kids!
Gabe enjoys hanging with his people, gnawing on deer antlers and playing with tennis balls. He does need some leash training, as he tends to pull hard when he is interested in something.
From observing his behavior since he arrived in CT, it appears that Gabe lived in a home at one time, as he is not spooked by appliance noise, like washing machines.
Gabriel weighs approximately 65 lbs and is about 3 years old (vet estimate).
Gabe appears to be a purebred Great Pyrenees, but he could be mixed with a breed like a golden retriever, since he is somewhat small for a pyr. Of course, this is a best guess based on appearance and temperament. Great Pyrenees do shed.
PLEASE NOTE: WHEN YOU EMAIL TO INQUIRE ABOUT GABRIEL, BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR LOCATION IN YOUR EMAIL, AND PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAMILY/LIFESTYLE, YARD (size, whether it is fenced), SCHEDULE, DOG EXPERIENCE, ETC. IN THAT INITIAL EMAIL INQUIRY. WE ONLY RESPOND TO EMAILS THAT INCLUDE THIS INFORMATION,
If there are children in the family that is applying to adopt, they must be over 6 years old.
Gabriel is neutered, up to date on routine vaccinations, heartworm negative, and crate trained. He is on heartworm preventative and advantix.
Fuzzy Face Rescue's adoption process includes an adoption application, reference checks and a home visit. We will only adopt to people who are located within 75 minutes driving distance from the 06371 zip code. Exceptions are occasionally made if I have a good rescue friend who lives nearby your location who'd be able to complete the home visit (NY, NJ, MA, VT, NH, ME, RI, MA) Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application if you are interested in adopting Gabriel!
Gabriel is being fostered in Lyme, CT.
NOTE that if you use yahoo or AOL (or any other email other than gmail), email may end up in your spam box, so check it frequently if you have inquired on or applied for Gabriel. This has happened repeatedly to applicants when I send the application to them; the applicants think that I have not responded, when in fact my email to them has ended up in spam.
