EDIT: 19/10/14 I got in! Gabs receives 2 kibbles for joining! Now just to move her up through the ranks!
EDIT: 18/10/14 The art is atrocious, I know. This was all done solely on my laptop as my tablets broken, I'll update it when it's fixed.
Name: Gabriella (GAB – bree – ELLA)
Nickname/s: Gabby, or Gabs
Breed: Boxer X Bull Mastiff X English Bulldog
Weight: 90 lbs
Age: Adult (5 Years Old)
Faction: Junkyard Dogs
Family: N/A (Note me, if you’re interested in being a family member of Gabriella)
Color: Red & White Irish w/ Piebald
Defining Features: Gabriella is extremely muscly, some would call her excessive body mass ‘fat’, but this is all pure muscle. She is a very masculine looking dog and many can mistake her for a male, which doesn’t bother her much. She has a very broad chest and her head seems smaller than her body proportions. He legs are well built to support her large body. Her tail was docked at an early age. Her coat resembles that of a Boxer, that being the most dominating breed in her. She has dots of ice blue in her eyes due to the excessive white on her body.
Loner | Hardworking | Humble | Maternal | Fearless | Skeptical | Weak-willed | Pessimistic
Gabriella is merely a machine. She will obey her leader all night and all day, and work herself to the bone. She hardly socialises with her faction members, due to the fact she needs to accomplish the day’s goals, and by the time they have been achieved it is time to sleep, ready for another day’s work. As soon as her leader’s word is said, she is blinded by her goal, and will rush into any situation, claws ready and teeth bared. Some call her brave for this…others call her foolish.
Gabs will never accept any praise of anyone. Even if she’s done a spectacular job, she will merely deny the compliment or pass it to one of her peers, it’s part of her loathing attention. She is more of a blend-into-the background sort of dog. The one thing she would not ignore is pups however, she has a special soft spot and will always try to make time to visit the little ones. Even if she is exhausted after a day’s work, she’ll still tell the pups a little bedtime story.
Gabby has always been very suspicious towards other dogs not in her faction. She will always go into a situation aggressively, it was how she was trained. However when it comes to those in higher authority, she is much a follower and never argues, despite her massive size and fighting background.
Because of her rather tough back story, Gabs has become much the strong, silent type. And most words that come from her a pessimistic utters. This makes it difficult for her to make friends, which is why she keeps to herself most of the time.
Gabriella’s history is not pretty. Her life begun when her mother, Rogue, a purebred boxer - was mated with a huge Bullmastiff X English Bulldog by the name of Loco. The pair were in the same situation, both in the illegal fighting dog’s trade, her mother simply a brood bitch to carry the future fighters. Gabby’s father was one of the best fighter’s, and often won.
Rogue had 3 puppies, all of massive proportions. All of the pups appeared to be male, until further inspection she discovered one was female, and just so happened to look more masculine than her two sons. In hope she would grow into her feminity, Rogue gave her the feminine name of Gabriella. Her two brothers were named Axel, and Max.
As soon as she had been weaned of her mother, Gabriella along with her two brothers began to be trained brutally in dog fighting. They were put into the arena with much more experienced dogs and were only saved from death during the last few seconds. The siblings quickly learnt that it was fight or die. They all progressed rapidly and bulked up soon like their father. Gabriella was extremely muscular by the time she was a year old, much to her mother’s dismay. Gabby was often taunting for her masculine looks, which her mother soon sorted, though it never bothered the training fighter.
By the time she was 3 years old, Gabs had been in many, many fights, and like her father, she too won many. She was now merely a fighting machine. Eat, fight, sleep. That was her daily routine. Her mother had passed away a year ago whilst birthing her second litter, the pups were stillborn and nothing could have been done. This only made Gabby colder, she’d lost the one dog she loved most, what more did she have? Though Rogue had made her daughter promise her that she would escape this prison one day.
And that day arrived. One of the young boys who worked at the fighting kennels, left Gabs’ kennel on the latch after giving her daily diet of leftover meat. After wolfing down her scraps, the new adult went to lie against the door, when it buckled open. Gabs had been locked away all her life, she had no idea what to do. But her mother’s promise, made her run for the nearest natural light, and soon she was free.
Gabs wondered the streets as a stray for 6 months before the Junkyard Dogs took her in. Though Gabs has never been one for socialising, she wanted the security that they provided. She is a great asset to them, though she does not believe it.
