Gabriel is Jean Slaughter Doty's story of a young girl's experience of love, lose, and admiration.
When the starving orphan puppy she saves turns out to be a valuable Keeshond, Linda experiences the grief of giving him up to his rightful owner and the joy of watching him trained as a champion show dog.
Jean Slaughter Doty was an avid lover of animals, especially ponies and horses. She raised numerous dogs, horses, and ponies, including some that she shows or races. Almost all of her books are stories about horses for middle readers or young adults.
