NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Please note: Bob will be rehomed with another dog for company. He is currently being fostered with Socks Macafferty and they have become great little friends. They would love to find a family to share.

Bob is the ultimate optimist. When he came to us he couldn’t use his hind limbs and his fur was all matted. He was in such a terrible state but he still enjoyed some cooked chicken thank you very much. He’s a lovely, gentle little dog, and touched our hearts with his poorly state. After his spinal surgery he surprised the vet surgeon and his foster carer with his amazing quick progress. Though Bob will never leap like a gazelle he loves his walks. He has been going on two 30 – 40 minute walks a day and loves them. He is always extremely pleased when he sees his harness brought out. He can pull a little on the lead with the excitement of going on a walk. Whilst walking he can bark at other dogs, particularly if one of the other dogs he’s walked with barks. Meeting dogs one on one, Bob is quite the gentleman.

Currently Bob is living with other small dogs and cats and he gets on well with all. No big, boisterous dog companions for Bob. He has to be careful, there is no jumping on couches or the bed with his genetic spinal condition but he doesn’t mind, as long as he’s near others, he’s happy.  Bob needs eye drops three times a day and will for the rest of his life. Bob loves his tucker, he loves his walks, he loves company. He’s loving life and will make a wonderful companion for that someone special who will welcome him into their family. And if you are looking for a beautiful duo, Bob would love to share his new friend Socks with you.

Thank you to Lyndsay of Paw Focus Photography for the fantastic photos of Bob.
