Meet Gabbie! Gabbie is a 3 year old Belgian Malinois Mix. Not much is known about Gabbie’s life prior to being brought to the shelter, only that she was found as a stray. WBF’s canine trainer boasts that Gabbie is extremely intelligent—one of WBF’s quickest learners in the program. Gabbie also has a playful side; She lives and breaths for fetch. She has excelled throughout her four months of training and will shortly be paired with a local veteran suffering from Post traumatic stress and/or Traumatic Brain Injury to help him/her regain greater emotional and physical independence in their every-day lives. This sweet and friendly girl is excellent with kids and dogs and will not only make a loving and loyal service dog for a veteran, but will no doubt, easily and quickly become a member of his/her family.

Lexi is a 2 year old female chocolate lab. She was donated as a puppy. Lexi loves to play ball and take long naps on the couch, a perfect combination for any warrior.

Meet Miss Mave!  She is a spunky one-year-old Weimaraner who is full of personality and sass! 

We received Mave at a very young age of only 2 months.  Everyone here at Warriors' Best Friend has enjoyed watching her journey growing up in the program! Mave is very intelligent and attentive.  As soon as she hears the trainer grab the leash, she comes barreling down the stairs and sits patiently as the trainer puts it on! Mave is what we like to call an "all arounder".  She is sweet to all living things and just wants to be near her person at all times.

Mave loves playing with other dogs! One of her best friends is Boscoe, an American Bulldog/mix.  They can play for hours wrestling and sharing toys.  Every now and then we catch them chewing on the same bone! They are truly two peas in a pod! As for the cats around the facility, she is still working up the courage to say hi!

Meet Max!  He is a handsome one and a half year old Boxer/Terrier mix.  He was born and raised in the shelter while patiently waiting to find his forever home.
