GUNNER IS ABOUT TO ENJOY A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS IN HIS NEW HOME

We thought you would like an update on Gunner, the elderly labrador who found himself surrendered to a Dog Pound by his previous owners a couple of weeks ago. We think Gunner is about 16 years old and the KWWSPCA took him into its care as soon as it was told he was in the Pound. Despite his great age, Gunner is very healthy. His main issue is that he finds it difficult to stand up as his legs slide sideways from underneath him. He needs to be hoisted into a standing position and once he gets going he loves to hobble for about 200 metres which takes him about 20 minutes. He got excited recently and tried to run but the poor chap just fell over. It did not bother him as he was picked up and he carried on. He spends his days snoring loudly in his bed and having a few toddles around the garden plus his ‘long’ 200 metre walks. He will spend the remainder of his senior years in a permanent foster home with two of our volunteers. He was not impressed at the idea of a Santa hat and decided to try eating it. Like all Labradors, he loves his grub – but not Christmas hats!
