We return to Dog Of The Week with a dog that is nothing short of great. Meet Gumbo the dog; he is a 7 year old akita-pitbull-great dane mix. Now most people who meet Gumbo for the first time are somewhat weary of approaching him, but if you take the chance, you will be greatly rewarded. He is a giant dog with an even bigger heart, who gladly accepts pets from anyone brave enough to approach. I mean how could you fear a dog with such a big smile.
