Bobby

Bobby is a handsome young lad, a clever boy with lots of potential. We are looking for confident owners for Bobby, who can commit to long term training and understand that he needs time to adjust to his new family. Bobby is currently living in one of our amazing foster homes, this is how they describe our Bobby….

“Bobby is 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.

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.

Bobby requires a home where all occupants will to be firm with him. He is a big softie with the ladies and wary with men however requires a home with a strong male figure, willing to be challenged from time to time – in a female only household Bobby believes himself in control and this spikes his anxiety, therefore a strong male figure calms him, and makes him feels protected, thereby reducing his anxiety.

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. Teaching bobby skills has increased his confidence, reduced anxiety and strengthened his bond with us, therefore advise continuing adding to his skills to maintain his confidence. On walks Bobby is pully, however lessens with calm strong men.

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.”
