MEET MISS GABRIELLA…..known to her close friends as “Gabi.”  At only 8 lbs, Gabi is a 5 yr old, tri colored, Shih Tzu…whose favorite place is on your lap!  She goes into nirvana when you scratch the side of her face…and will tell you when she isn’t getting enough attention — literally!  She seems to be potty trained, but we never guarantee.  She was born with weak hips OR she may have been hit by a car previously, so we have had her on cage rest and she has become stronger — does great going up and down the stairs now!  She loves her walks, but prefers only a block or so! We don’t believe that Gabi’s prior life was very joyful, but she is now blossoming!  She gives gentle little kisses and really loves to be close to you.  She can be independent but prefers being loved.  Gabi doesn’t require another dog at home…..but one where she gets a lot of love and attention will make her happiest.  She has the cutest face, and it just goes right to your heart when she looks at you with her human eyes! Gabi would even be happy to have kids over 8 yrs old to cuddle with.  She is playful with humans but not so much with other dogs…just curious and interested…and sometimes even protective.  She is a wonderful pup who deserves a wonderful life!  Is that with you?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
