Pet name:
Labrador Retriever
Coat length:
Gabe is part of a bonded pair of exemplary “ambassadogs” for Labradors. He is the nurturer and is very attuned to his family’s emotions. In the past 18 months, Gabe and his family have lost two Lab "siblings" and their human dad; their mom loves Gabe and Lena so much that she wants to place them with a family who will continue giving them the loving care, attention, playtime, and space to run they deserve and are accustomed to.
Gabe currently lives with a toddler and a cat (plus his people) and has spent time with grandchildren of all ages. He's agile and playful, but easily settles for snuggles and love. Gabe loves to play fetch and will reliably retrieve and release the ball; he also loves to swim! He'd be happiest with a yard to play in and explore with Lena. Gabe is trained to an electric fence and abides by the flags, and also abides by baby gates and physical fences, too (although he once jumped the gate to get in the pool!).
Gabe will bark excitedly when he sees new people and other dogs when he’s out walking on leash, but it’s not threatening or aggressive. He’s “all bark, no bite” (just loud). Gabe rides calmly in the car (Lena gets stressed and pants the entire time) and is well-mannered at the vet and the groomer.
At age 7, Gabe is entering Labrador “middle age” and his adoptive family must accept that, as he ages, he will need appropriate care. Gabe has some graying on his muzzle and a few lipomas on his flanks, along with a skin tag on his sheath (all checked by vet and deemed harmless). Gabe does not act like a 7 year old; he’s in excellent physical condition and, with continued care and clean diet, he will (hopefully) have many more years of good living ahead.
