Meet Bob!


Meet Bob!

He is a 18 month old neutered male Dane. Bob is such a special guy! Bob has survived a significant amount of trauma in his short life. His previous family’s home was lost in a fire. Thankfully, all 4 of the family’s dogs were able to get out alive.

However, once in temporary housing, the family was no longer able to keep the dogs. The 3 little dogs were sent to a rescue, but Bob was left abandoned in the backyard after the fire. Bob was terrified when he was brought into rescue. Since being in his foster home, Bob has made huge strides coming out of his shell. He absolutely loves small dogs and cats. He’s learning how to be with big dogs, as his foster home has dogs of all sizes, including another Great Dane. He enjoys car rides and rides calmly in the car. When first put on a leash, he melted onto the floor. He’s learning how to walk on a leash with a lot of positive reinforcement, but it’s something that does make him nervous.

He’s a love bug with so much life in him! He just needs someone patient to help him learn how to trust again! He would do well in a home with another confident dog to help guide him, but this isn’t necessary for adoption. He is house trained and has lived with kids and was good with them.

Since Bob has been through so much and needs to build some confidence we would recommend kids 8 yrs and up. He is being fostered in Asheville NC and will require a fenced yard. If interested in Bob you can email us at for an application.
