Doby (pronounced Doe-bee; not Dah-bee like the Harry Potty house elf) is a spunky senior with a sense of humor. Here's an excerpt from one of our volunteers that recently shared their favorite Doby memory:

Doby was the first dog to escape his pen on me when I started working at Hallie Hill Sanctuary.
This is something one does not forget. His nimbly quick dash to the gate, linebacker shove to get it open, and flash past my legs left me flatfooted (and somewhat amused) for a split second, then a bit worried. I simply could not believe it. I saw only his hind end, tail wagging wildly and he got smaller and smaller as he ran farther away! He literally “exploded” out the gate. Doby ran from pen to pen with obvious glee…I’m out and you’re not…I’m out and you’re not... taunting the other dogs!
Haha! Just try and catch me! Of course I learned quickly that dogs DO escape from time to time. It happens even to the best, the quickest and the strongest of us. Sometimes the dog gets the perfect moment and boy do they take advantage of it! Distract. Dash. Shove. RUN! Run Like the Wind!
Fortunately, I had help in getting Doby rounded up. He had a huge grin on his face as he was escorted back to his enclosure. His roommate, Flossie, was eagerly waiting to hear the tale of the breakout. I discovered later that Doby had recently had surgery on one of his knees. It was pretty obvious the knee was doing just fine now! After that escapade I was very wary when entering and leaving Doby’s pen. I eyed him suspiciously each time we encountered one another.
I couldn’t help but fall in love with this good ole boy. His vim and vigor at the age of 10+ encouraged me that even as we get older, we can still be active, mischievous & unpredictable, fun-loving and dance like nobody is watching!

Doby Dynamite deserves a great home with the perfect person/family. He loves ear rubs and playing with his toys. Would you open your heart and home to this fun-loving hound mix? He will certainly steal your heart away!
