Gabby

5 years White and tan Shih Tzu If you have ever wondered what ‘resilience’ looks like, look no further. Our little Gabby epitomizes the amazing resilience we see over and over again in our rescue pups. Before we picked her up from the shelter, we were informed she had two masses on her abdomen. What we saw when we finally met this lively little girl was one large open mass and one small insular mass. Gabby’s demeanor, however, bespoke a happy dog who didn’t seem to have a care in the world. One would have thought she’d known us forever. She instantly clamored for our affection and bestowed upon us her own in the form of loving kisses. The two masses were completely removed, and Gabby is now recovering and doing quite well. Unfortunately, the biopsy results indicated that the masses were cancerous. Currently Gabby is free of any other masses, but there is a strong possibility that the cancer will metasticize. When? We don’t know. How quickly? We don’t know. In the meantime, we are looking for someone who will give Gabby a life befitting a queen...because that is what she deserves. At 15 pounds, Gabby is spayed, microchipped, and current on all vaccines. Her recuperation with us has been filled with love and care from our wonderful volunteers, but we would love for Gabby to find her forever family so that she can relax and heal in the arms of those with whom she will spend the rest of her life. Might that be you?
