If you are looking for a great companion, I'm your girl! My name is Gabby. I am a happy girl who just turned 7 this past July 4, and of course in Rat Terrier years, that is barely middle-aged. I weigh 20-21 lb. but have a defined shape. My name fits, as I do like to talk (bark) to the other dogs in the house when I want them to play with me. I get along with my foster siblings and other dogs I've met (except for one Chihuahua who had kind of an attitude). I would prefer that cats keep their distance, though. There aren't any children in my foster home so I've only had a couple occasions to be around kids, but I did enjoy the ones I've met. I think I'd probably have fun with children if I had them in my forever family. I love to lie beside my foster mom and get belly rubs and back rubs, and give her sweet kisses and lots of love. I am house trained and really like going for walks. In new situations I'm shy and somewhat scared until I realize Iím not going to be hurt. I am very frightened by storms, which isn't surprising since I was rescued in a storm after being abandoned. I used to think I was supposed to sleep on the downstairs sofa, but my foster mom would carry me up to her wonderful big bed and once I realized that was okay, I'm in heaven! I'm not a total "Velcro doggie," as sometimes I will go and lie somewhere by myself (thought close by so I can keep an eye on my foster mom while she works around the house) or I'll go upstairs where I can see outside. I don't understand why I haven't been adopted yet. I'm such a sweet, loveable girl! Take me home and I promise to give you a lifetime of unconditional love.
