When his doting guardian became terminally ill, seven-year-old Bobby came into our care until his mum passed away many months later. With his delightfully happy and affectionate nature, Bobby won the hearts of all our volunteers and everyone else who met him.
Adrienne was no exception. She applied to adopt a large breed dog and joined us with a couple of them on a walk. We asked if she minded if a little Bichon Fris also came along for some fun. With a car full of dogs, Bobby was placed in her lap and, as they say, “the rest is history”.
During the walk, Adrienne kept looking sideways at this cute, fluffy, upbeat little dog and was amazed that he romped with the big boys and held his own through the thick mud, long grass and difficult terrain. While he cuddled into her arms on the return journey, she took herself completely by surprise when she felt a strong urge adopt him.
Lucky Bobby! Lucky Adrienne!
