 Gumby is a 2-year-old lab mix. He loves to play and run around with his toys. He also loves to be petted and go on long walks. If there is a cat in the home he would do best with an assertive cat. He is selective with the dogs he meets, but in the right circumstance would be okay with a canine friend.
