Most Goofball Dogs Can Be Found at the Indiana Shelter [VIDEO]
Allow us to introduce you to this week pet of the week of the Vanderburgh Humane Society. Meet Gombo. .
Are you looking for a big goofball that ignores its own size and clumsiness? Gumbo might be the guy for you! This 3-year-old mastiff/bulldog mix came to VHS via Puppy Pipeline Rescue of Georgia. While not always the most graceful, you’ll quickly be charmed by Gumbo’s laid-back, “I’m just happy to be here” attitude. He has lived with other dogs, but we recommend meeting everyone at home before adoption. Her adoption fee is $150 and includes her sterilization, microchipping and vaccinations.
