Gunnar is a 5-6 year old Labrador and Pit Bull Mix looking for a foster family or his forever home in Southern California or Southern Maine! Gunnar is a super sweet boy who LOVES everyone he meets. His foster mom says he’s the most gentle, loving pup and while his full name is Gunnar McHuddleston, she often calls him Gunnar McCUDDLEston because Gunnar loves to cuddle so much.

Gunnar is paralyzed in his back legs as a result of gunshot wounds to his spine. He has been fitted for wheels and loves to use them to get around. He is also in rehab to work on the use of his legs. His foster or adopter would need to be committed to providing Gunnar with the time and support he needs in order to continue his rehabilitation


Gunnar is great with people, including kids, and loves to be around other dogs, but he likes to chase kitties and is fast on his wheels. A home without cats would be best.

While Gunnar’s story is heartbreaking, he is one of the most resilient and happy dogs we have had in our care. For more information about Gunnar’s amazing story, please visit
