Reston Pet of the Week: Dobbs

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Dobbs, this week’s Reston Pet of the Week. Dobbs was recently rescued from a high-kill shelter and is looking for a permanent home.

Here is what the people at Reston’s Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about the Boston Terrier/Basset Hound mix:

Dobbs could quite possibly be named Mr. Personality of the entire universe. No lie. This little guy is one of the funniest, happiest, sweetest and most lovable dog we’ve ever met, and he will only go to a home that thinks so too.

Dobbs was rescued from a high-kill shelter where he most likely would not have had a chance. He was almost bald, his body was covered in crusty scabs from demodex, a non contagious, but potentially life threatening issue. All he needed to do was to look up at us with his soft round eyes and we were hooked. We had to help him.

No sooner did we get him back to our facility that we saw his potential. EVERYONE fell in love with him. … He was so grateful to be out of a cold, cement kennel, and it showed.

He is now fully cured, healthy, neutered and is the most hysterical little love bug around.

If you want some sunshine in your life, a smile on your face every single day, and an adorable dog to love you from here to the moon and back — it is Dobbs. He is about 9 months old now, and weighs 23 lbs. He has short little legs, that run like the wind, he loves balls and toys, (not to mention treats) and can stand on his hind legs like a champ. This little guy is truly a special, special dog, who deserves a special, special family or person.

Contact [email protected] for more information.  Dobbs adoption fee is $325, although he is worth his weigh in gold. He has been neutered and fully vetted.
