Meet Gabby, the new pure-bred basset hound who currently is in the middle of a one-month training session at a “doggie boot camp.”

“Bassets are also stubborn little things,” said the Rev. Pete Jankowski, pastor at St. Patrick Catholic Parish in Joliet.

Jankowski said Gabby was born Aug. 7. He drove five hours to Vienna, Illinois on Sept. 29, an event that influenced her name,

“I named her after the archangel Gabriel on the feast day of the archangels, the day I went to get her, Sept. 29,” Jankowski said.

Jankowski said he will join Gabby for training March 4 and bring her home March 11. The St. Patrick’s parishioners love her, he said.
