Bobby was in the Inland Valley Shelter when we rescued him. When he first arrived at our facility, he was quite shy and nervous about receiving attention. However, like all that have come before him, he has adjusted well and is all too happy to greet you when you enter his suite. He's very polite about asking for love; using those sweet brown eyes to coax a scratch or two from you. Once you've loved on him, he's attached! Especially if you have a leash with you. He LOVES taking walks! Bobby has a condition called "Mega-Esophagus". This is a condition where the esophagus loses muscle tone and doesn't properly push food to the stomach. We feed Bobby in a chair, as it's important that he eat with his head elevated. He loves his chair and has already become a pro at getting into it! Due to advancing cataracts, he's had some significant sight loss over the last several months as well. It should also be noted that he has shown some signs of food aggression with other dogs. He has been known to nip when restrained (typically at the vet for ear cleanings or nail trims). Despite all these ailments, Bobby really is such a great boy. He did well with his fellow canine friends when he first arrived, but we noticed that the more commotion there was (and dogs around), the more Bobby would get overwhelmed and would start tiffs. It would be ideal for him to go to an only dog home, however, we would consider a foster-to-adopt situation if there's already another dog in the home. Bobby would make the most loyal companion for someone willing to give this middle-aged gentleman a chance.
