Adopt Bobbie an Australian Cattle Dog Pitbull Mix at Wayside Waifs

UPDATE April 2 - Wayside Waifs let me know that Bobbie was ADOPTED yesterday afternoon!

This beautiful girl is Bobbie.  She's a 4 year old Australian Cattle Dog / Pit Bull mix who is currently calling Wayside Waifs in Kansas City home.  Below is her message to you, plus a wonderful adoption video! You'll see Bobbie during her very first agility lesson, plus you'll see her infectious smile and wiggle butt in action.

Hi there! I'm Bobbie and I'm a total sweetheart of a dog! I'm friendly and affectionate. And I'm strong and athletic, too. I just want to be part of a family again. I want to feel loved and cared for again. I'm confused about being here and I long for a forever home.

I'm a 4 year old, 44 pounds of solid muscle, already housetrained, Pit Bull Terrier/Hound mix. I came to Wayside via the Riverside, MO animal control people, when my owners could no longer care for me and they abandoned me. They loved me very much though! Before they left me, they wrote down some information about me, since I wasn't able to speak for myself. They just didn't know where to turn, I guess, and if I saw them today, I'd give them a big tail wag and a kiss. Us dogs don't hold grudges. Anyway though, today is the day that I move on with my life! I have no choice but to pick myself up and carry on. I hope my next family is able to love and care for me for the rest of my life.

First order of business when I got here was to get myself in tip-top shape. I had my teeth cleaned, was treated for fleas, recuperated from a cold, and had a benign mass removed from my side. The mass was tested and it's nothing to worry about. Whew! I feel much better now. I'm a pretty gal...unique and solid and strong. I do pull some on my leash, but you can get me a harness to wear when we walk, if you'd like. That will make it a much more enjoyable walk for both of us! I'd love to exercise with you, so I hope you like that too. I'll be a great walking or running partner and the activity will help me stay happy, healthy, and calm.

To be perfectly honest, I'm stressed out by life here at the shelter, and it's sort of hard for me to chill out and relax. When I do though, I'm quite the affectionate snuggler! I love to be by your side. I try to talk to you...not with barks, but with little grunts. It's very cute and gets people wondering what I'm trying to say. I will sit for my treats and always take them very gently from your hand. I'm a sweet dog with a delightful personality!

Staff thinks I'll do best in a home with kids over the age of 12. I take my food sort of seriously, which isn't a big deal for adults, but the young kids don't always know how to give me my space. Please give me a safe place to eat in peace, and I will be just fine. And I need a home without any other dogs. I'm rude and don't know proper doggie etiquette. Please bring the whole family out to meet me, just so we know we all get along great together.

Life can bring you changes you're not ready for, that's for sure! I didn't know I was about to become homeless until it happened. Now here I am, looking for a second chance with a loving new family. I'll try my very best to be a fabulous companion for you! I'll love you with every bone in my body, every single day, for the rest of my life. How's that?
Love, Miss Bobbie
