Bobby, medium sized lurcher:
Age: 9 years young (he is a very fit, active and healthy dog for his age)
Neutered, Vaccinated & Microchipped: Yes
Good with children? Yes, Bobby is excellent with the older children in his foster home.
Good with other dogs? Bobby would prefer to be the only dog in his new home and does bark at other dogs out on walks.
Good with cats/small animals? Bobby has previously lived with cats, but hasn’t been keen on any that he has met since being in his foster home. So ideally we are looking for a home with no small animals he could potentially chase.
Summary: Bobby is a lovely dog who came into rescue through no fault of his own. His owners were a older couple and when the lady became very ill, they were no longer able to care for him so sadly Bobby ended up in rescue. He had been extremely well loved and cared for in his previous home.
He is currently in a foster home as we felt that kennel life would have been too much for him. His fosterers report, that he is extremely well behaved in the home. He is completely house trained, does not destroy anything and spends a good deal of time lazing around on the sofa or snoozing. He rarely barks and is more than happy to greet new people into his home. He is very affectionate and loves a good cuddle.
Bobby’s only vice, is that he likes to bark at other dogs whilst out on walks, although this is improving as the weeks go by.
Bobby is good to be left for a few hours a day and spends his time at home alone snoozing!
Bobby desperately needs a forever home, could that be with you?
As Bobby is currently in a foster home in Southampton, an appointment will need to be made to visit him. Please give the St Francis Animal Welfare staff a call on 02380 693282 for more information.
