KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Meet Gunner, the Young-Williams Pet of the Week. Gunner is a goofy 6-year-old Australian Shepherd mix. Gunner loves to play, cuddle and be close to folks as well as other dogs and cats. Gunner, who also goes by “Gum gum.” loves car rides and has pair of beautiful eyes: one blue and one brown.

The seventh annual Cause for Paws event is coming up on Oct. 21. The outdoor, in-person dinner auction and concert begins at 6:30 p.m. at Historic Westwood, 3425 Kingston Pike, in Sequoyah Hills. The night is one of Young-William’s signature fundraisers.
