Luckily for him, the Charleston Animal Shelter’s credo is “No kill shelter” and may be he knows it (?? After all he belongs to a very smart breed) and hence he returns there every time.
It finally dawned on the staff that Gumby wants to make that shelter his home! SO, they accepted the reality – and let him make his home there.
Now Gumby is not a freeloader – he wanted to pay his dues. So, he took the responsibility of “Peace Officer” – to calm down the newly arrived dogs and help them settle down, make them feel at home.
Here you can see him displaying one of his tricks – opening the gate.
Did I impress you? Ain’t that cute?
Gumby now has been promoted. He has taken on additional responsibilities of putting patients at ease when they come in for a medical procedure.
Here he is taking some time off his busy schedule to pose for us with his admirers – the staff at the clinic.
Gumby in his career goal uniform:
We wish Gumby continued success in his endeavors, his career and new ventures.
This story exemplifies the patience and persistence these volunteers exercise in their daily routine with these animals – Kudos to them!
