Hi! My name is Gabe! I am a fun-loving, playful, adventurous puppy! I currently live with 2 of my littermates, a foster sister (80lb German Shepard Mix), and my foster family (2 adults, 2 elementary aged kids). I love all people and pets and get along well with everyone I meet. I haven’t met a cat yet, but I know I’d love to play with them!

I enjoy exploring outdoors but also love being inside by my humans – I especially love to crawl on their lap and snuggle. Being held is one of my favorite things! I love to play with my littermates but I especially love to play with my foster sister dog – I follow her around, run with her, and like to try to wrestle and play with her. I am kennel trained; I sleep through the night in my kennel, keep it dry, and I also spend quiet time in my kennel during the day when my family is working and at school. I’m not fully potty trained yet but when kept on a regular schedule I don’t have many accidents in the house. I also LOVE food so my foster family thinks I’ll train quickly due to my motivation for food.

recently went up North to my family’s cabin (3 hour drive each way) and I loved the car ride – it was so soothing I slept the entire way up and back! We got to explore a frozen lake and while I was initially unsure, I enjoyed all the new scents and adventures it brought – so many new smells!

I am definitely a family-loving dog so I’m excited to meet my new family!

Gabe is from Texas.
