Our gorgeous Gabby is due for some good luck. In October 2021, this grande beauty was found tied to a tree in the Bronx, NY, along with her one year old male pup. Gabby was far along in her pregnancy, which was clearly not her first. The two dogs had no food or water for some time before police took note and brought them to NYCACC.

Sadly, Gabby arrived at our Connecticut Rescue with an antibiotic-resistant upper respiratory infection and she required a Cesarean section surgery. Only one puppy of six survived.  In the face of all that trauma, Gabby has remained friendly and affectionate, in love with life!

Gabby is a real gem. Around 5 to 6 years old, She has been spayed and is ready to start her new life. She has been friendly to everyone and, has been a dream patient during her epic ordeal. She tolerated all the poking and prodding like a champ. Gabby turns heads, and wins hearts everywhere she goes.

As a brindle Mastiff, Gabby is a gentle giantess who is a wonderful family dog.  She is true to breed temperament standard: calm, medium energy, loyal and extremely loving. She relishes human touch, and would be a great choice for a big family, with older kids. She will likely assume her role as the family guard dog and protector, but will readily take cues from her people, and settle once strangers are welcomed into the home. She could also join an active adult home, with folks who love a gentle large breed companion. She would be a good choice for on-the-go seniors, or laid-back folks who love to relax by the fire with a good book. She rides well in the car and would make a great traveling buddy, but she also loves to be home with her cherished people.


Gabby has proven herself to be a true Boss.  She has mothering instincts, and loves to control the "social order."  She is not above taking disciplinary action with bold dogs who act like fools in her presence.  Gabby will always be a genuine Alpha Queen. For the sake of a peaceful homelife, Gabby needs to be the only dog in residence.

At 120 pounds, Gabby is small for her breed, and is at an ideal weight.  Adopters should maintain a healthy weight and light exercise regimen to ward off obesity related joint pain that plagues the giant breeds in their senior years. She is a large, calm dog, who needs moderate exercise, perhaps one to two leisurely daily leash walks, in addition to frequent potty breaks.

Gabby has good house manners and she is mostly house trained and crate trained.  She is not crazy about her crate, but she can easily stay put for an eight hour workday. Adopters should expect the occasional accident as she transitions to a new home. She is in excellent health, is spayed and up to date on routine vaccinations and health screenings.
