Gabriel's Heaven..

We know many of you followed Gabriel's rescue and we have been asked a few times for updates but to be honest there is not much to tell apart from the fact that he loves it here and is just so very happy. He is such a big cuddle bug and adores snuggling in his duvet den in his house. He spends his days happily within the routine of the sanctuary, gets out and out about regularly and has fun playing footy with Joy on the play area and generally being a rather large lap dog! He has the cutest face and says hello with a smile every morning when he comes out for his morning cuddle and fuss before breakfast. He is devoted to Joy and they mainly just play together at the moment but he has started hanging out with Sandra too....life is all very exciting for him and we have to take things slowly but he is doing so well and is already part of the sanctuary family. He clearly loves the life here and he is a very happy go lucky lad who loves his home comforts and routine.
