Escape Dog Returns To Shelter 11 Times. Then They Realized He Was Trying To Tell Them Something…

Can you take a hint? Most of us would like to think that we are sharp enough to take a hint. Some of us can’t. This is Gumby.

He is a 7-year-old hound that was trying to give the people at the Charleston Animal Society (CAS) a hint, and they didn’t get it. Well, they did eventually get it!

Meaning he has escaped many (many) times from homes only to return to the shelter. Gumby is affectionately a Houdini dog.

Gumby has been adopted out seven times from CAS, picked up as a stray three times and surrendered a staggering eight times.
