More detail:

2018-02-23: Hi everyone!!! My name is Gabriel. I am 2 yrs old petite Lab mix and I weigh 41 lbs. I just arrived from Korea 2 weeks ago. My life hasn’t been easy before arriving to America but I put it all behind me now and I am ready to live the good life.

I am lovable, sweet and gentle dog. I absolutely love to give kisses all the time because I am so grateful for my new life. I love to run and follow my foster mom around the pool. I am learning what ‘come here’ means. I also like to relax in the sun with my foster mom. I try to play with my foster brother but he really doesn’t pay attention to me. I am always happy and wagging my tail. I am always happy to see my adult humans.

Here are a few thing that you should know about me. I am a little skittish since I’ve lived most of my life in a kennel in Korea. I love adult people and I am friendly with other dogs. It would be best for me to be placed in a home without children because they scare me with their sudden moves and loud noises. I am now ok being walked on a leash with my foster brother. Two weeks ago I could not walk on a leash and be comfortable. When a car would pass by me, I would immediately lay down with my tail between my legs. I was also scared about getting into a car but my foster dad picked me up to get me in and I was good with that. We are still working on that.

I am housebroken, however I am scared to use the doggie door. The flap really scares me. I don’t like going potty before my breakfast but once I eat my meal I would go outside to go potty. Perhaps that is how I was trained in Korea.

I also don’t really know the English language yet. I know the word NO, but I cannot understand most other commands. I have been known to chew on some materials for example scarfs, blankets and towels. That is easily corrected by a soft command of ‘NO’ and a soft blow to my face.

Whoever chooses to adopt me please be aware that I am still a work in progress. I need lots of love, patience and understanding. In return I will give you many years of love, laughter and joy.

With love,
