A few months ago one of the Foster Parents for GABR was attacked by 2 big dogs in Indiana. He had just got done walking the neighbor girl home from visiting his bassets. The dogs came charging at him and he suffered over 70+ bite wounds and his one ear was pretty mangled but he is one tough cookie. He was able to finally get the dogs off him and get to his house where he could call for help. The dogs were PTS immediately and the owners could not prove any of their rabies shots so he must endure that know. He spent several days in the hospital then several weeks recuping with his family. During all this all his foster dogs and his own bassets had to be farmed out for some extra loving care while he recovered. Well he finally recovered and got we have been in the process of reuinting him with all his fur-babies.
Isabella was the last one of his fur-babies to make it back home and I was so honored to be part of her journey back to her Daddy. Isabella is a very special girl as she is one of the GABR Parvo puppies from about 5 years ago. Isabella was not even expected to walk let alone live through her experience. Marshall and his wife did such an awesome job with Isabella and she is one strong girl that walks like there is no tomorrow.
Well since Isabella was headed to Dwight for her transport back to Daddy, they decided to go ahead and move Gabe to his foster home as well. So Gabe and Isabella rode in the BUV to Dwight when they were turned over to another transporter for the rest of the trip. Gabe was going to his foster family and Isabella to her Daddy.
Isabella greeting her Daddy! Priceless!
And this is Gabe. Gabe is new to GABR and was just making his way to his Foster home. He was about 5-6 years old and one of the sweetest soles. He loved to be talked to and to have tons of belly rubs. I also found out that he likes to stick his head out the window when he rides. This is not safe practice so we immediately rolled that window up.
Then on our trip back to Bloomington we brought Felix. Felix was making her way to St. Louis to be fostered by a wonderful lady from GABR. Felix has already have a potential adopter that is interested in her. She was the most gorgous basset and had a great figure. She had some meat on her bones.
