Bobby is a total wonder of a dog, whether you’re looking for a loyal companion or a family dog. He’s sensitive and shy with new people, which requires a quiet, slow introduction to his new family, but he shows his true colors after only a day or two. While we believe he could be further socialized with the help of a patient owner, it’s probably best if his new home is a quieter house without too many visitors coming and going. Bobby just loves to nuzzle his family for attention, be brushed and sleep on the floor. He’s completely house/potty trained and does well both in a crate or free in the house for hours by himself. Bobby’s working on losing weight to achieve a healthy body, but he absolutely adores long walks, so it shouldn’t be hard to get him to that point - he’s already working on it! He’s also an amazing walking companion with great leash manners and no reaction to other dogs. While Bobby hasn’t been exposed to cats, he seems to enjoy horses (although should be further exposed to be sure) and enjoys the company of other dogs, but could also be happy as the only dog in his forever home. He comes when called and knows “sit” and “shake”, and does great in cars and on stairs. Bobby hasn’t met many little kids yet, but has lived with an infant in a previous home. Bobby loves to be pet and loved on, and is overall a very mellow, calm dog who would make an amazing companion.  Bobby is currently being fostered in Portland, OR.  

All our dogs require secure VISIBLE fencing.
