For more information, call or stop by!
We are open Tuesday-Sunday 12pm to 5pm

Meet 10yr old Gabby, 75lbs of pure love and fluff. After Gabby’s owner passed away she was surrendered to us at the beginning of October with her sister Chance. We are still getting to know Gabby but with the help of her previous foster family and volunteers we are learning what a sweet, mellow mannered girl she is. Gabby gets along with her sister and most male dogs but has a history of not getting along with other alpha females. We also know she would best be in a home with no cats. Gabby loves people and kids which makes her a great family dog. If you are looking for that perfect companion for your family that can go for a nice hike or walk on the coastal trails, but also be very happy relaxing at your feet during lunch out Gabby is your girl. With Gabby’s age our vet suspects mild to moderate dental disease that may need further vet care after adoption.

Dogs have been domesticated for thousands of years and are now considered to be man’s best friend. However, the origins of domesticated dogs are not entirely clear and there are several theories about how they came to be domesticated.

One theory is that dogs were originally domesticated by early humans for their hunting abilities. Wolves, which are the ancestors of modern dogs, were likely attracted to the camps of early humans because of the abundance of food. As the wolves became more accustomed to human presence, they may have been domesticated and trained to assist in hunting.

Another theory is that dogs were domesticated for their ability to protect early human settlements. Wolves are naturally territorial animals and may have been tamed by early humans to serve as guard dogs for their camps and homes.

There is also evidence to suggest that dogs were domesticated for their companionship. Early humans may have formed close bonds with wolves, eventually leading to the domestication of the animals.

Regardless of the exact reason for their domestication, it is clear that dogs have played a crucial role in human society for thousands of years. They have been used for a variety of purposes, including hunting, protection, and companionship. Today, dogs are kept as pets in nearly every corner of the world and are beloved by people of all ages.

In conclusion, the origins of domesticated dogs are not entirely clear, but it is likely that they were domesticated for their hunting abilities, protective nature, and companionship. Today, dogs continue to play a vital role in human society and are an important part of many people’s lives.
