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.

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!
