CongRATulations to the Proehl family!

 Dobby is only about 8 months old and weighs about 9 pounds. He is a type B rat terrier, with shorter legs. According to the shelter, Dobby was kicked in the head, which badly damaged his right eye. The wonderful shelter staff rushed him to a local vet, who removed the eye and took care of him until ResQ could be contacted. Despite the abuse in his past, Dobby loves everyone. He has a happy spirit, and is very affectionate. He snuggles into your lap like he is soaking up kindness, and follows his foster mom around everywhere she goes. Dobby doesn’t much like a crate, and he would rather snuggle into bed with you. (He doesn’t take up much room, after all) He is doing wonderfully with his house training, and is very smart! There is no evidence that he was emotionally damaged by the abuse, and to prove it, his tail never stops wagging. Dobby loves to smother you with kisses, if you will sit still long enough. Our vets tell us that his surgery area will look much better in a few weeks, and he has absolutely no handicap from losing the eye. His depth perception is fine, and he sprints up stairs like a big dog. Losing an eye has not slowed this amazing pup down one bit.

    Has there been any interest in Dobby? I am considering. Not sure how the girls will take to a newcomer. He deserves a good home for all he has been through. Thanks.

    Hi, Deb! As far as I know, Dobby is still waiting for his family to find him. I’m really enjoying his company, he’s such a good boy! But he needs to find his own home. Cora

    If Dobby does not have a forever home waiting for him, I sincerely believe he may belong in our family. Plenty of reasons why, far too many to mention, but all of them are important. He touches my heart. Any information would be helpful. Thank you! Stephanie
