“Smart, silly, and intuitive are three words that describe me. I’m a 3-year-old Plott Hound mix.”

Gabby is full of energy but also full of love. She doesn’t bark but is a great watch dog. She bonds closely with her people and tries to protect them, so a quiet home with no children would be best suited for her. 

Her foster says that she would make a great agility dog. She loves direction and to please her people. Gabby loves the water, and a doggy pool in the summer is a MUST! I bet she is loving all this rain we are getting! Gabby needs a strong leader/couple who could take her for hikes, beach trips, car rides and more. Gabby is ready to meet you and will even come with some training sessions to help guide her into a forever home.

If you’re interested in meeting Gabby, please email us at so we can coordinate with her foster family.
