Bobby

Sweet, sweet Bobby is now ready to find his perfect forever home! This boy is very timid but in a quiet home, he will come out of his shell with time and start to show his silly personality.

When Bobby is comfortable, he is such a funny character. He loves to run around with toys and sit on top of the cat tree to look out the window. He can be a little thief at times and it’s not uncommon to find the TV remote or socks in his crate so he will need plenty of fun toys, including durable ones to chew on. When Bobby is in the yard, he loves to play chase with his canine friends and this guy can run so fast! He enjoys going on walks through the woods, so he could be an excellent hiking partner.

Bobby currently lives with 2 dogs and 3 cats and does well with all. When Bobby was first adjusting to his foster home, he didn’t like the cats coming into his space. Now that he knows they mean no harm, he does well with them and sometimes even tries to play! He would need respectful, dog savvy felines though. He is crate trained and can be left for a work day as long as he is provided with proper exercise and a fun stuffed Kong to keep him busy while his people are away. Due to his love of collecting his peoples items, he should be crated when no one is home.

Bobby is very fearful of new people and new sounds so his person will need to help him build confidence. When people come to visit, a lot of treats are needed and everyone must respect his space while he warms up. It could take several visits until Bobby is comfortable with someone so please be patient because this guy is well worth it! Since Bobby is so nervous, he should not be off leash unless in a securely fenced area as he is a flight risk when startled. Bobby is currently fostered in the country but can become overwhelmed when the odd car passes while on walks, so he would need a fenced yard if he were to live in the city so that his adopter can slowly work him up to more walks in higher traffic areas.
