Bobby - Adopted

Meet Bobby - April 2018

Little Bobby has just come to us from a shelter. All we know right now are the following:

  • Bobby is 11 yo and super sweet and friendly

  • He has a high grade heart murmur

  • He had difficulty breathing while at the shelter and a trip to the emergency clinic revealed that he had fluid accumulation in his chest as a result of his heart disease

  • He has a really bad penis infection

  • He has urinary crystals

Oh boy, do we ever have our work cut out for us! Stay tuned for updates on this little man. Right now,  he needs immediate help, and a lot of it.

Bobby is on his way to our vet. Please consider making a donation to his gofundme.


Update - July 2018

Sweet little Bobby has received great vet care, thanks to all the wonderful friends and supporters who donated to his fund, and sent him lots of love and prayers every day. Since his arrival into our rescue:

  • He has been neutered

  • He has had dental surgery and lost a lot of rotten teeth

  • His urinary crystals have cleared

  • His penis infection has also cleared

  • We have looked further into his heart problems and he is now on heart medication which is keeping him stable and comfortable, and slowing the progression of his heart disease.

In other words, Handsome little Bobby is good as new (well kinda) and ready to join his forever family.


This silver gentleman will steal your heart! He is sweet as can be. You'd never know that he wasn't in a perfect home the way he loves everyone. He's good with kids, cats and other dogs. He likes a nice walk too. His foster mom says he likes to sleep in bed with her. He is the master of all snuggles, Chihuahua style!
