Update on the Gabbs Dogs from OAS

Herbie, Itsy and Tippy are making remarkable improvements.   The staff and volunteers at Safe Haven in Yerington are miracle workers.  Here is what a few weeks with great people can do...

Our Gabbs dogs have come a long way since leaving that nightmare at OAS.  Even their wolfie friends are improving too... and getting use to the camera.

There is even an update on Dixie.  While it was first thought that she may have passed away while at OAS, there is now evidence that she is alive and is with Steve Markwell as a personal pet.  The photo below was taken at a distance of the dogs that he was keeping as personal pets while in AZ delivering the OAS dogs.  As you can see by the last known picture of Dixie, this dog looks very much like our girl... of course she, as all our others Gabbs Dogs are starting to get up there in years.


Dixie and Able, we promise to not give up our search for you.  We love you and you deserve the very best love and devotion. 

Love to All The Gabbs Dogs

RIP Turtle

On February 12, we learned that sweet Turtle passed away peacefully during the night... as a couch potato.  She was very much loved, comfortable and warm.  She may not have been the perfect dog, but to her guardian she was perfectly imperfect and that made her special.

Turtle lived with lots of other dogs which helped heal her heart, including fellow Gabbs Dog Joe, who misses her terribly.  Her rescue Mom and everyone else awaits the reunion in heaven... Can you imagine the parties for rescue parents??

Until we Meet Again Turtle

RIP Aaron

Aaron was rescued by El Dorado County Animal Services South Lake Tahoe Shelter from the Gabbs site, along with Buddie and Buster.

Aaron loved the water and would always play in his water bowl, no matter what the weather was like, however he always cleaned up well.  He was adopted by a wonderful family that stopped by the shelter in January to let them know that he had passed away.   The family was very teary eyed giving the news; it was easy to see see how much love they had for him.

Until we all meet again Sweet Aaron!!
