A candy pink chinychinchin, a fudgy muzzle, a sweet little boy, oh so scared in his kennel. Indeed it is quite worrysome to be sandwiched between two furiously barking dogs. Bobby is soft growling in his den. Calm down, Lil’ hun, I am coming for you. Bobby immediately settles down, gets leashed and springs to the yard. He is not scared anymore. He gets to meet other pooches(and does not want to leave their side), eats treats, does his business and even plays, plays plays when he feels totally comfortable with me. He has fun being tagged and trying to catch a scarf. What a transformation from a shy Mouse to a happy little Tiger. After jumping clumsily on the bench, he lays down on my lap for much needed caresses and hugs. Bobby is a plump youngster at 7 months of age, beautifully carved, well groomed and healthy looking. Bottom line, a real beauty and the promise of an absolutely magnificent adult. Meanwhile, he is just a silly, naive, playful, friendly and needy puppy who like a sponge, is ready to absorb all the teaching anyone is willing to give him. He is open to all adventures. Bobby does not belong to a kennel but to a home sweet home. He needs the caring and guiding hands of a new owner or family who will love him to pieces. Come and meet Bobby at the Manhattan Care center, fall in love, grab him and take him home with you as your forever best friend.

This brindlicious boy’s reputation preceded him and I couldn’t wait to meet him. Expecting a shy, frightened wall flower I was thrilled when I approached his kennel to find him up front, tail wagging at the sight of my leash. Out we go into a pen, Bobby happy to play with a toy, chase a ball, listen to the birds and give me kisses. He’s an adorable munchkin, well fed, happy and sweet. His tail never stops wagging, he’s happy to explore his new world and make new friends. Bobby is looking for a person or family to shower with love and learn all about being a rockstar grown up dog. He’s well on his way as he seems to be housetrained, isn’t mouthy, and is affectionate and sweet. He’s awesome now and with any positive reinforcement training he needs will be even more awesome. Come meet our brindlicious Bobby today.
