Bobby needs a family who can support him as he comes into his new life, as his foster family are now doing. Bobby would enjoy an enclosed garden and needs exit management. He is not for cats, feathers or small furries. Bobby meets dogs well but would prefer to be an only pet. He is proven to live with children.Video: Bobbing AlongHis Story:
Bobby grew up in a family where there was a lot of emotional trauma; he helped them as a comforter but couldn't go with them into the accommodation offered. He is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. Bobby is fostered as an only dog in Lowestoft, Suffolk, in a home with one child.Advert:
Bobby entered our Rescue as a pampered, overweight pooch. He has been waking up to exercise, walks, meeting new people, and chugging along with other dogs outside. Bobby has taken it all in his stride. He has gained confidence, slimmed down, and has many friends. He is very happy in transit, housetrained, and happily helps out in the kitchen. Bobby enjoys a healthy diet with all its nutrients; meanwhile his waistline has receded and with this, Bobby has regained his youthful vigour!
Bobby is a 7-8 year old PatterJack (Patterdale x Jack Russell). He loves his foster family and beach walks too. He is trim and healthy now. Bobby loves his new life with all its new opportunities. What a character - every bit the terrier!

He has a 4 year old Patterdale Terrier called Bobby who has always been attached to 'D' but has become more so since 'D'’s dad died earlier this year ( 'D' and his dad lived on their own in the house since his mum died in his childhood).
Unfortunately, 'D'’s family home in Kent has been sold to pay off outstanding debts and 'D' will have to move out on 30th November and go into supported housing which does not accept pets. He is due to receive some money from his father’s will once the house is sold and the debts repaid and this will enable him to rent somewhere privately that would accept dogs.
We are therefore looking for a home for Bobby. However, 'D' has said that he will obviously consider re-homing if that is the only alternative we can find. I met Bobby for the first time recently and he needs someone who understands how to manage Patterdale terriers. Bobby barked at me. He has said that Bobby is like this with everyone and he thinks it is because he is his only ‘pack member’ left and is very protective of him. I also wonder if Bobby has excessive energy as 'D' has suffered with depression since his dad died and I don’t think he walks him as often as he did. 'D' has a part-time, minimum wage job and can just afford to live himself but has no money at present to pay for kennels.
I have looked at your website and I wondered if you may be able to help in any way or if not, if you could possibly suggest somewhere else that might be able to meet Bobby’s needs. Many thanks, Mel 'D''s friend
Bobby came into our care on the 30th November
