Meet Gabby (She's Adoptable!)
Gabby is a gentle 5-year-old girl who is a complete love bug! She will gladly follow you around the house and give out doggie kisses. Her favorite place to be is next to you which makes her the perfect binge watching partner. When she is not napping she loves massages and belly rubs. Gabby is a very photogenic girl who has been featured in many HSSA promotions including our recent Chipotle fundraiser. Gabby’s story has been shared on KVOA, The Explorer, Arizona Daily Star, 104.1 KQTH, and 93.7 KRQ. She has also made live appearances on Fox 11 Daybreak, Tucson Morning Blend, and KOLD Noon Notebook. Gabby’s atopic dermatisis is considered severe and includes redness and swelling in her feet along with possible fungal infections of her toenail beds if left untreated. Gabby will need medication, medicated baths, and a special diet that includes vitamin E and fish oil.
