    Meet 90lbs of Pure Sweetness! Bobbie is about 3 years old and had a hard life prior to coming into AARCS’ care. His life was spent living on a short chain with little food, water or shelter. Despite this Bobbie has an amazing spirit and never let his plight get him down.This ‘Big Guy’ has spent some time in a foster home and loves the whole idea of spending his nights by the fire, snoozing on a dog bed, and enjoying the company of his people. Bobbie has not lived with other dogs and would likely need proper introductions to other dogs as it’s likely that he had to defend his meager existence from others. Bobbie has done great thus far on his dog to dog test meeting larger dogs, however, would need proper introductions to other dogs and be supervised.

    Bobbie is an absolute sweetheart who does the cutest little dance when it’s time to go for a walk. He would love to find a family who would be interested in attending some training classes with Bobbie as he’s never before had anyone teach him the basics. Bobbie is very strong on-leash and could benefit from these classes and it will also help Bobbie and his new family bond. As you can imagine, Bobbie here is very strong and we would like to find him a home with an experienced handler. He has been introduced to other dogs and it has gone very well, however, he has never (to our knowledge) lived with another dog. Bobbie hasn’t had any exposure to kids under our care, so we feel that he would be best suited to a home with older kids due to his size. Bobbie does the cutest little dance in his run when it’s time to go for a walk and will entertain himself by throwing a kong in the air!Bobbie would love nothing more than to find a home of his own where he can be spoiled and cherished for the rest of his life! Bobbie just loves everyone he meets!
