According to Facebook: Greenville County Pet Rescue, this beauty has run out of time at the high-kill upstate shelter. This means the shelter may euthanize at any time. More information can be found on this Facebook thread.

Gomer is a beautiful 2-year-old pit mix. Although he has tested heartworm positive, he's otherwise healthy.

Unfortunately, Gomer has been at the shelter since late April, and he's worn out his welcome. Especially now that the Greenville shelter is full.

Gomer will need a very special owner, as many larger dogs do. He's listed as dog and people friendly, but Gomer does have an issue with men.

Perhaps a man was cruel to him in the past. Or he could just prefer the ladies. While a man may eventually win Gomer over, there's a chance this dog will only like women in his future.

Anyone wanting to offer him a forever home should take his preference into consideration. Gomer's information is listed below.
