Bobby is almost 2 years old and a Staffy cross. He was a stray at 8 months old and through no fault of his own hasn’t found his forever home yet. He is currently living in one of our amazing foster homes and is ready to find his happy ever after.
Since Bobby has never had a permanent home or owner, he has become a very nervous dog. Due to his nervousness Bobby requires a home that is child and pet free, with firm, confident, and experienced owners.
Once given the time to settle Bobby is a fantastic loyal companion, always wanting to be by your side. He is a very lively playful dog with bundles of energy. Loves to play with his toys, has epic zoomies but he will let you know when it’s bedtime.
Bobby is house trained, attracting attention when he wants to go outside. He is a very clever dog understanding basic commands that we are adding to. When Bobby is overexcited he can become nippy but the “no” command will generally stop him. Bobby does not pinch socks or shoes or the like. He will eat his food within seconds, and is obedient during our meal times. Bobby travels well in the car. He can bark/growl when scared.
Bobby is fearful of strangers and sometimes will bark at other dogs. Following a dog training class we have been advised to keep his stress levels low by limiting walks and exercising in the house, until his confidence grows. On walks he pulls but stops on command.
Bobby currently sleeps on the floor of our bedroom in his own bed. He sleeps through the night without disturbing us only waking up for walks in the morning.
Bobby doesn’t like to be left alone, whimpering when left, this could change once trust develops and training.
