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.

Current Status:

Gumball is still having medical concerns. We have had a tough time regulating his diabetes, and he is not gaining weight and has a ravenous appetite despite a diet change and his intestinal parasites being under control. We are pursuing an ultrasound to determine if he has another health issue causing that. Hopefully that will give us some answers on how we can help him become more adoptable.
