Meet Gabe

Hi there! I’m Gabe!

I’m definitely forever young at heart but I’m not as spry as I used to be. That doesn’t mean I’ve lost my zest for life. I may be getting older, but I still relish my daily walks with my favorite staff and volunteers and the occasional game of fetch.

These days, you’ll often find me moving at a more leisurely pace, especially when it comes to those back legs of mine. They’re showing their age, but I don’t let that get me down. After my walks, I’ve developed a new appreciation for some quality cuddle time with my favorite staff and volunteers. There’s nothing like a good snuggle to make me feel cherished and content.

So, if you’re looking for a companion who can appreciate the simple joys of life, I’m your guy. Let’s take a stroll, maybe play a gentle game of fetch, and then unwind with some cuddles. I may be a bit older, but I’ve got a heart full of love to share.

I’ll be honest; I enjoy being the center of attention and would do best in a home without children, other dogs, or cats. 

I do take some time to warm up to new people, but once you gain my trust, you’ll find me to be the sweetest dog you could hope for. I am one of the best snugglers here at FOHA. I’m so good that in the summer, I make sure to jump in the closest doggy pool, then cuddle up with my favorite staff or volunteer, that way they can be nice and cool too. I hope you understand that I take time to warm up and maybe you’ll be willing to spend a little extra time to get to know me, because it is pretty fun to be my friend. Let’s spend quality time together and make some unforgettable memories!

Since I have reached my golden years, I am eligible for the Senior Care Plan (learn more here). If you have additional questions, please use our Contact Us form and select Senior Care Plan Questions.
