Bobby is an active/high energy dog that along with stability and routine requires exercise and mental stimulation as he is extremely smart and loves to work his body and mind. Bobby has been searching for his forever home for over 2,300 days but we just KNOW his magical person is out there for him and just needs to find him.
Bobby is very smart and knows all his commands. He loves walks and enjoys playing with all types of toys. Bobby really needs an experienced person who knows dog body language and can understand that because he is epileptic (very well controlled by meds) he can get overstimulated. Especially in situations he’s not comfortable with. Bobby just needs to be in a household with structure and routine. No kids, cats or dogs in the home please. He really thrives when he knows what to expect day in and day out. He needs someone who can read his cues as he may be getting pet or jumping up at you out of excitement and out of no where stop and growl so that is when you stop petting him and let him go on his way.
When Bobby meets someone he is unfamiliar with he does have the potential to bite so just needs time to get to know people. Although he needs to be the only dog in the home, Bobby does well with certain dogs but can only have short intervals of play time. When Bobby is given what he needs and in the right home, he can be SUCH a sweetheart and he loves the people he trusts and those who understand his cues; he’s an amazing dog with a playful personality. Can you be the one for him?
