Name at PHF:
Age at adoption:
When we adopted Gabrielle on January 16, 2010, she was about 8 months old. Gabi is a lab/pointer mix and we kept the name she was given by Puppy Hill Farm. Before my boyfriend and I adopted Gabi, we had my boyfriend's childhood dog living with us. We were a happy little family but only after a few months with us, she fell ill and passed away. We were both devastated by our loss and it took us a long time to finally look into adopting. We searched the shelter and the Humane Society but every dog we considered got rejected by our apartment complex (due to size or breed). We were ready to give up but we decided to go to the adoption fair at PetSmart for one last look. That is where we first saw Gabi. She was painfully shy and very nervous, even after sitting with us for a while. But we could see the potential in her and she has turned out to be the best thing that has ever happened to us.
She has really come out of her shell and is such a smart girl! She has picked up on her training and does all sorts of fun tricks (even the "Gator Chomp"!). We are still trying to get her over her fear of strangers, but she is great with other dogs and is such a sweet girl! We are so lucky to have found her and she such a big part of our life.
P.S. She is still not a great swimmer but she loves to try! :)
