Gabe & Izzy is the moving true story of the young woman whose bond with her dog, Izzy, changed her life.

In middle school, Gabrielle “Gabe” Ford developed a degenerative muscle disease and was harassed by bullies as a result. She did her best to keep her head high, but it wasn’t easy. Then Gabe got a dog she named Izzy, who developed an uncannily similar disorder. They were invited to appear on Animal Planet to talk about their bond, which in turn led to an invitation to speak at a school. And so began Gabe’s career as an antibullying advocate.

Dubbed “The Voice of America’s Bullied” by the Huffington Post, Gabe now makes a career of public speaking and has received numerous honors for her hard work. This is her amazing story—from her lowest days dealing with various challenges to the unbelievable and immediate bond with Izzy to her ongoing mission to put an end to bullying, one school at a time.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Susan Bennett is a forthright narrator—no sugary voicing here. She’s as honest as Gabe, with moments of hesitation, frustration, rage, and ordinary kid-speak. Bennett uses pauses to accentuate Gabe’s moments of uncertainty. She’s also spot-on as Gabe’s mother. The chapters are interspersed with excerpts from letters Gabe and Izzy have received. These underscore the impact this amazing duo has had during speaking engagements.”
