Introducing Bobo Talbot…my first foster dog with Wags Rescue & Referral.
I picked Bobo up 4/7/19 at Horsham Veternary Hospital in Horsham PA. Wags Rescue holds bimonthly adoption events at Horsham Vet as well as it’s monthly transports of van loads of rescue dogs coming up from the South.
Little Bobo was straight off the van from Georgia. Horsham Vet was busy & packed with dogs and people meeting dogs. My little guy was in his crate – tired, scared & confused.
Welcome to your new life in Pennsylvania, sweet little boy. It’s all about to get better ♥
I don’t know a whole lot about Bobo’s life before I met him…it’s his past and it gets to stay there. I do know he had a timestamp on his life and it breaks my heart just thinking that this lovey little boy almost didn’t make it out.
This little guy fit into our home quickly. He was here for only two weeks – and if you didn’t know better you’d guess that he’s just always been here.
I have three dogs and they’re all “other dog” friendly. That being said, the process is a little different in their home versus camping, vacations, friends houses or at parks. This the third foster dog we’ve had – I think they become more accepting each time. They are definitely more possessive of their things and their humans on their home turf. Everyone is friendly – but it takes a few days for them to fully welcome the new guy into their home.
Bobo, as to be expected, was a little shy at first. We made his crate comfy with blankets, pillows and toys and gave him time to rest and decompress. Our big head bully mix nanny dog, Tank, couldn’t go without checking on him. Tank slept outside Bobo’s crate the first night ♥
Bobo took right to me and my oldest daughter. I’m not sure if he was around children before, but it didn’t take him long to hopelessly follow around my loud & crazy five year old daughter. Bobo was a little unsure of my husband at first – but that didn’t take long either.
This little guy would spoil any foster family. He loves kids, he’s dog friendly, sweet, gentle, house trained (after we figured out his “need to go potty” signals), walks nicely on his leash, likes car rides and already knows some basic commands.
All that being said, he’ll make a wonderful forever companion. He’s going to make someone very happy. This guy is happy laying around all day being lazy. This guy is happy hiking and going for walks. Bobo is just a happy, chill guy!
Bobo already has a piece of my heart. I’m in love with his squishy little face, his “cute resting grouch face” and his little wrinkly butterball body.
I couldn’t ask for a better first foster dog with Wags. First, because he’s a sweet, laid-back & easy dog to care for. Second, because I’ve already fallen in love with him. He fits right into our home, our family & pack. It’s going to be difficult to say good-bye to him. I’m going to cry happy tears for him and his new family –
selfish sad tears for myself because I had to let him go. But it’s what best & what has to happen. Bobo gets his happily every after and the next homeless pup gets to start his new adventure ♥
BOBO GOT ADOPTED!!!! I said farewell to Bobo on 4/20/19. I cried – a lot! Not going to lie – it wasn’t easy saying good-bye to him. I’m so happy for the little guy – he has his new life and new home with a sweet mama and a doggie buddy to play with. The little guy finally gets what he always deserved – his forever home ♥
