Gordy was spending time with his guardian and her dog when a stray dog jumped the fence and attacked them in their own yard. Unfortunately the dog did not survive the attack. Gordy lived, but lost his left ear. His guardian suffered significant injuries to her hands as she tried to fend off the dog and had to undergo multiple surgeries. She subsequently lost her job and her home, leaving her unable to care for Gordy.
Da, Da Da Daaaaa! Cotton Branch to the rescue!
Gordy, a kind and gentle soul and quite a character, now resides contentedly at Cotton Branch where he often follows visitors and begs for a nice, long belly rub. Trust me, you want to meet him!
Thanks to Cotton Branch, Gordy can now live a life of peace and happiness. Donors and volunteers make it possible for the sanctuary to educate the community and rescue, transport, and care for farmed animals like Gordy.
