Meet Gabriel! As a deaf senior, Gabriel immediately felt out of place at HSHC. When he found comfort, it was in the snuggles of humans and the warmth in his kennel. He especially loved his new bed, curling up and enjoying the new plush bed he had previously not known. We are so grateful for the support of the Petfinder Foundation and their gift. So is Gabriel.
From his Petfinder profile: “Who’s a good boy? Gabriel is! The staff and volunteers at the shelter will tell you how even-tempered and chill he is. Gabriel is 9, neutered and housebroken. And aside from a few freckles on his snout, he’s solid white and gorgeous. He is good with kids and other dogs, so he’d make the perfect family pet! (Gabriel would pretty much make the perfect pet for anyone.) His foster family told us that ‘Gabe’ spent a good amount of time snoozing on the couch with their elderly chihuahua. His other favorite activities were watching their small children play on the floor, sniffing around in the yard and (yes!) going for walks. ‘Gabe is an excellent companion and really loves being around his people,’ says his foster mom. And the shelter’s behaviorist says, ‘Gabriel is just a great dog overall!’ So, what are you waiting for? Come and meet this sweet handsome fella.” Meet Gabriel here.
