Gabby is approximately six years old and it’s believed that she may have been used for hunting as her face is covered in scars. When she arrived at GRWE, she was very scared and wasn’t sure who she could trust. Thanks to her wonderful foster home in the Forest of Dean, her confidence has grown and she has blossomed into a quiet but playful dog.

Gabby’s favourite things are sleeping and eating. Her foster home have been training her and she is now clicker trained, able to understand sit, down and go find. She is proving to be very bright and loves to learn so her new owner could easily take this training forward. Due to her past, Gabby can be easily overwhelmed so she’s looking for a quiet home where she’ll be the only dog with adults and perhaps older children. She doesn’t mind being left alone for short periods and is suitable for people who work.

Gabby is just learning how much fun play can be, so would love a garden to play in and would only need two 20-minute relaxing walks a day. Julie Williams, GRWE rehoming officer for Gloucestershire, says of Gabby: “She is the most loving and gentle dog you could meet. After having a difficult start in life, Gabby wants a new forever family who will support her and show her that life is enjoyable.”
