Leila is this week’s Pet of The Week! She’s new to the house and is in transition. She’s getting her medical evaluation done and will be available for adoption soon. All the mamas at Bob’s House are giving her space, time, patience, love, belly rubs and treats and letting her start to come out of her shell. She’s about 8 or 9 years old and was surrendered to the shelter by her owners. Applications are being accepted and you can get all the deets at bobshousefordogs.org.
Honey Comb! Honey Comb is about 6 years old and new to Bob’s House For Dogs. She’s in transition right now, getting a spay and a thorough examination by a Veterinarian. Honey Comb should be good to go in about a week. She loves laps, is a gem on a leash, loves car rides and is waiting to hear from you.
Duke! So dashing!
Eli is this week’s Pet of The Week! Eli is in the “Here to Stay” program at Bob’s House For Dogs. Eli arrived last Spring and had severe socialization and anxiety issues. He’s come a long way!
Heather Muller, Lead Veterinary Technician, says: “It makes my heart warm in the thoughts of how far this dog has come. We can pet him, he plays like a real dog in the yard, and slow but surely he will live with some normalcy here at Bob’s. He is such a smart dog, he knows kennel, stay. It’s definitely helped him see life differently. We may never fix all his anxiety but with a lot of reassurance and love Eli will be living out his life with us at Bobs.”
Meet the new and improved Susie! (SuzyQ to her Bob’s House mamas) Susie came to Bob’s House so dangerously overweight, the shelter she was originally at (in a different state) was going to euthanize her. Since being at Bob’s House, she has lost almost 30% of her body weight. She’s now running with the other dogs and rolling in the yard, happy as can be. And flirty. She’s very flirty with the boys of the house. She’s still got it.
Obesity is a real issue with dogs. Even though we love to give them scraps and spoil them, putting too much weight on their little joints and organs is dangerous and can lead to premature aging. With strong and loving diligence from the staff and volunteers at Bob’s, Susie’s weight is normal and healthy. You can see from the before picture that she is a totally different dog! Way to go, Susie! What an inspiration.
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!
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.
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.
