Gumball comes to us from another rescue where he was in a foster home but didn’t get along with one of the dogs there. Gumball is diabetic and correspondingly has low vision. Gumball’s story is a sad one. He was originally from North Carolina and was thrown off of a bridge. Luckily he survived the fall and was rescued. He may have some brain damage from the fall, and he was found to be diabetic during his aftercare at the vet. We are so happy to have him, and to help him heal. He’s a very sweet neutered male pitbull mix who is about 4 years old.
Gumball is being evaluated by our vet for a care plan. His diabetes is not well controlled, and he was found to have parasites which are currently being treated. He’s learning his way around the sanctuary, which has been a bit of a slow go because of his low vision (going in and out of doorways and gates scares him). He loves his time with people though, and is meeting new volunteers on a daily basis. We are so glad he’s with us.
