Gabe, racing name Oshkosh Gabriel, is a 3-year-old boy who, after 2 races, decided retirement suited him best. Gabe has been selected to participate in The Greyhound Inmate Experience.  TGIE places retired racing greyhounds in the care and supervision of specially selected and trained inmates of a correctional institution.  The greyhounds and inmates engage in a 10-week training program.  The greyhounds transition from racer to pet.  The inmates experience unconditional love and learn to trust, be patient, and become compassionate.  A wonderful Win-Win adventure.

Gabe has a beautiful brindle coat.  He is a gentle giant weighing around 80 lbs.  By the time he graduated from TGIE, he started to come out of his shell.  He is a shy, quiet guy who is not really sure about his surroundings.  However, he is getting along well with his foster brother greyhound and has not shown resource guarding or signs of aggression.  He is starting to like his walks but is a bit reluctant at first.  He is also working on walking on a lead.  He would do best in a home that doesn’t have cats or small animals.  He would do really well with someone who has a lot of patience and is willing to take baby steps with his training so he can increase his self-confidence.  He would benefit from having another greyhound or dog around to show him the ropes.  In time,  when he is in his forever home and used to a routine and surroundings, he will be the sweetest companion.

Gabe graduated on 08/04/2022 from The Greyhound Inmate Experience and will be available for approved adopter visits on 08/20. Please check back for updates as he settles into his foster home.
