Are you a bleeding-heart dog lover? Have I got the animal for you!
This is Bobby. He is as lover and he is deaf and almost/mostly blind. He was found as a stray at a dumpsite in Puerto Rico, and he is covered in scars and may have bullet fragments in his hind quarters. And all he wants to do is snuggle with you and play with his dog toys. Don’t you want to provide that life for him?
Upon hearing about his vision and hearing problems, I was a little nervous about how to get photos of Bobby, but it wasn’t an issue at all (food is the answer, in case you are wondering). Bobby loves going on walks, and he’s perfectly crate trained.
The rescue believes Bobby is a lab-sharpei mix. He’s around seven years old. He loves, loves, loves children and he does great with other dogs as well. You should bring him home immediately. To do that, visit his adoption page here.
About this project
For the next month, I’ll feature photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focus on dogs who need homes. These are dogs currently in foster homes, waiting for their forever family. They are amazing pups who will melt your hearts — some are hard to adopt because they are pit bull mixes (the sweetest dogs ever who cannot help their strength) or they have lived on the streets for a long time and are covered in scars or they might be blind or deaf (or both). Some are simply hard to get adopted because they are black, which is the dumbest reason ever. But each dog that has come into my studio in the last few weeks for photos has had a warm heart and wanted nothing more than love. Wouldn’t it be great if one of you could provide that? I hope so. To see all the dogs featured so far, look here.
Also! See those cute bandanas up there? They were donated by the wonderful Lucy & Co, a local dog accessories company that I adore. For every bandana bought between now and May 6, they’ll donate one to a rescue dog to help get them adopted! Yay for companies with big hearts!
