Gabe's bowl is a quest item in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


This bowl belonged to Dr. Borous' rather large cyberdog, Gabe. Borous loved his dog and fed him lots of puppy chow chock full of chems, like Psycho. It has since been abandoned by its owner and remained in Higgs Village ever since.

You will need to show the bowl to Dr. Borous during A Brain's Best Friend. Upon seeing it, he will feel remorse for experimenting upon his dog.

  • Dr. Borous will not recognize Gabe's bowl until you have gone to the "X-8 Research Center".
  • Obtaining Gabe's bowl will be difficult if you have the Wild Wasteland trait, as it is protected by a mini-legendary deathclaw "gremlin" named Stripe.
