Pet of the Week

Let it ride, Clyde! Clyde is looking for you to be his next snuggle bunny. This rock star is a very popular chap at Bob’s House. He loves to fetch and despite his manageable issues with arthritis, he gets around like a champ. He’ll play fetch til your arm falls off!

The dogs who stay at Bob’s House get so much exercice and outside time, they often have hard time staying awake for dinner. They manage…. but the struggle is real. Chillin with Clyde

Happy New Year from Clyde!

ADOPTED! Congratulations to Earl and his new family! Earl (pictured right) is going home with a wonderful family and even has a new big sister: sister is even smiling. 🙂

Duke, Duke, Duke…. Duke of Earl, Earl, Earl….. Meet Earl!! (Sue likes to call him Earl Spencer cause she’s a Royal nerd) Earl is at Bob’s House For Dogs and ready to make your royal aquaintance. Earl is from a puppy mill so a lil extra lovin and some quiet TLC would be ideal for this Prince. In the short time Earl has been at Bob’s, he’s come out of his shell and is making a place for himself very nicely. He’d love to meet you. Despite only knowing brief human touch (for very short spurts of time), he’s very fond of lap time, cuddling and once he learned what treats are, he earns them like a King.

This week we met Skippy! Skippy is new to Bob’s House and as of this publishing time is recovering from his much-needed dental. He’s about 12 or 13 and is a snuggly, nuzzly, lovey boo. He’d love to meet you!!

Ripley and Nikki came to visit us this morning. This sweet guy is still in transition but will soon be available for adoption. Bob’s House works with many area veterinarians in the area who have been incredible angels to the dogs at Bob’s. They take extra care to make sure the dogs are healthy and ready for their new home. Ripley will get his chompers cleaned and get any other necessary medical care he may need before he comes to live with you: and give you all the unconditional love you could possibly ask for.

Nikki and Ripley
Winter Fun with Ripley

Meet Jake! This sweet guy being fostered at Bob’s House For Dogs is about 13 years old and is brand new to the house. He’s scheduled for a full medical work up, a much-needed dental and he is ready to meet you!

This morning we met Lydia from Bob’s House For Dogs. Sweet, gentle, loving Lydia was found as a stray so we’re not sure on age. Probably around 10 or 11 years young. Lydia would be the perfect addition to any family. Maybe yours?
She enjoys walking in the yard, hugs, watercolor painting, watching the dogs play, and occassionally going after the tennis ball. Lydia will give sweet hugs and is always polite.
If you’d like to meet Lydia, please email Nikki at:
