After spending time in a shelter, Gabby has stepped out of her shell.

Suffering from pneumonia and isolation in a shelter, Gabby, an American bulldog mix, slipped in a state of depression.

But the folks with Second Chance Friend Rescue couldn't allow her to fade away in a shelter. As soon as a foster space became available, Gabby was rescued and given a new home.

It took a while for Gabby to recover from pneumonia and heart worms, but she has emerged as a funny, energetic girl.

Gabby is well loved by her foster family, who also is working to find her a forever home. Gabby shares her foster family with two other female dogs and several cats.

At about 6-years-old, Gabby demonstrates a mature nature and responsibility. She can be left loose in the house when her owner is away.

She is a good guard dog, eager to bark at anyone who attempts to enter the house.

Gabby is housetrained and knows how to use a pet door. She doesn't chew or tear up your personal belongings. She loves treats, chewing on bully sticks, taking short walks and snuggling on the couch.
