My son was blowing bubbles with his chewing gum and Baxter decided to jump at one of the bubbles and got gum in his hair!! It wasn't much but while trying to get it out I pulled some hair out. It is right above his upper lip. I suppose if you were not looking for it, it is not as noticeable but it is VERY noticeable to me. Will it take long to grow back? It looks terrible.

Omg, aren't they just the funniest little guys? I wouldn't say it will take long to grow back, poor little guy, I bet he doesn't do that again in a hurry.

Use peanut butter next time. Simply apply it to the gum and rub gently. Something in the peanut butter breaks down the gum
(almost disolves it) and helps it come out. My sister used to get gum in her hair all the time when we were little and my mom used peanut butter a gazillion times on her!

I was going to say try peanut butter. The oil in the peanut butter dissolves the gum.

Thanks for the advice!! Hope there is not a next time but at least I'll know what to use. Sure wish I would have asked before I took it upon myself to try and get it out. Now he has a little bald spot

this may sound disgusting but...

peanut butter gets gum out of hair.. it's gross and it smells but.. put a huge spoon on the spot where the gum is and it will come out.. just comb it out with your hands. aw you didn't have to trim your pups hair....

Has anyone ever tried Goo Gone? You can get it at Walgreens, Wal-Mart, etc. It is made to take the sticky residue off of things. For example, when you buy a glass and peel the label off, there is that tacky stuff that you just can't get off, well a little Goo Gone removes it. I swear by this stuff. I know it also can remove gum from carpets and so forth, so if the peanut butter doesn't work you can always try this. Oh and it smells pretty good too!

When I got married and unpacked everything from my shower, this stuff was a lifesaver. It saved me time, fingernails and frustration!

Would the Goo Gone be safe to use on their hair? Are there harsh chemicals or anything in it? Sadly we had another incident with gum. Baxter got a piece from my sons nightstand and tried to eat it. The peanut butter really did a good job getting it out. Gum is now BANNED from our home!!

I don't know what the chemicals in it are, but I would think it would be okay to put in the hair, remove the gum and the spot wash the area.

Here is a picture of the bottle...


I just looked up the ingredients and here they are:
Solvent naphtha, petroleum, heavy aliphatic
Terpenes and Terpenoids, type citrus oil
