“She’s a volunteer favorite,” says Animal Aid for Vermilion Area volunteer Macie Zoble.
Bubble Gum is a two year old pit bull, who has been at the Vermilion Parish Rabies Animal Control for four months. Zoble says, “She’s a beautiful, beautiful young lady and it’s rather surprising that she’s still here because she’s such an amazing dog so this is her chance for the public to really see her. We think that’s the only reason she’s still here now.”
On top of that Bubble Gum is one of the hardest breeds to adopt. Bubble Gum has also lost her hearing, that’s why volunteers are looking to find her a home with a family with patience. “She does get along with the other dogs, but we do believe because of her hearing loss that she is more trusting of humans. She does not get the cues of the other dogs so she’s looking to the human for guides on where she needs to go and what she needs to do,” Zoble says.
If Bubble Gum doesn’t find that special home or at least a foster home by March 29, she will be euthanized along with 12 other unlucky dogs. “We have until the 29th to get them adopted, fostered out of the shelter it’s crisis mode, it’s crisis mode in the shelter, 60 dogs here is unprecedented,” says Zoble.
