BIO UPDATE 12/17/2016:
Merry Christmas everyone, it’s Bubby here! It’s gotten cold here in Tennessee so my foster mom put a sweater on me. Don’t I look handsome? Plus, she’s got the wood stove going and I’m really liking that since it turns out that I have arthritis. I wasn't feeling myself one day and the good folks at AADR took me to the doctor’s house and found out about it so now I’ll be taking pills when “Arthur” comes to visit. The vet said I was an excellent patient and I feel much better now. The best part of that trip to the vet was that the scales showed I had lost another 1.3 pounds!! I am now at 18.7 pounds and falling. I couldn’t have done it by myself though. I would eat everything I could get my paws on if my foster mom wasn’t watching over me. I would love to have a furever Mom to look over me like that! That would make my year!
I love curling up on the couch at my foster home now. It’s not as crowded up there as I thought and now that my weight is down, the ramp doesn’t seem so steep. It’s great because I can cuddle with the girl doxie (I think she is so cute) and my foster mom. I still bark at the cat but he doesn’t pay any attention. He knows I’m all bark. I wonder who told him?
I can’t wait to find my furever home and really, really hope that will happen soon. That would soooo be a wonderful way to start the New Year!
Hey! My name is Bubby and I'm 10 years old. I'm having a grand time in Tennessee at my foster home. I live with 2 other doxies and 2 big dogs that are a special blend according to my foster mom. One of them is a pretty gal that looks a lot like me and the other 3 pupsters are guys. We all get along great and have from day one. I try to keep up with them but since I need to shed a few pounds, that's not easy. It doesn't stop me though. I love to run when I'm outside but it's not unusual to find me soaking up some rays out on the deck or in the yard. Hanging out is really my favorite thing to do. Oh, and there's a cat here too! He goes in and out the doggie door like he's a dog and every now and then I will bark at him or chase him. I know I'm not supposed to do that so when my foster mom calls my name real loud, I know to leave him alone.
I used to live with another human but something changed and AADR came and got me out of the shelter so that I could live in a home until someone gives me a new forever home. I miss my old place but I love everybody I meet, especially women. My foster mom says I'm very well behaved and laid back except for the barking part when she's getting my meals ready. There's nothing wrong with that though, right? Hey, I love food and lately it doesn't seem like I'm getting as much as I did in my other life.
I would really, really love to be your buddy. My foster mom says I'm the sweetest boy and would make an excellent companion for a retired person or couple. I haven't had any 'accidents' in my foster home and I know how to use wee wee pads too. Sometimes I just don’t want to go outside, especially when it’s cold and dark. I don't mind sleeping in a crate or on a dog bed. I just like to be covered up with a nice blankie. That's the doxie in me. My foster mom has a ramp in front of the couch but so far, I haven't tried that hard to get up there. She keeps telling me it's okay to get on the couch with her but to tell you the truth, it's a little crowded up there. I think having a human all to myself would be fine with me. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind sharing, except when it comes to food and treats. I like to play with squeaky toys occasionally, but I usually end up sharing mine with one of my foster brothers. He's crazy about them so I don't mind. He's just a kid.
Foster Mom here: Bubby is a very sweet senior and would make a wonderful companion for someone who likes to take easy walks in the park and spend a lot of time with him. He's fine with taking it easy at home just watching TV or listening to music. He loves a warm spot in the sun and settles down easily at night when I go to bed. Car rides are no problem for Bubby either. He truly does greet everyone he meets with a wag of the tail and a friendly bark. He will need to stay on his current diet until he gets to a healthy weight. He's getting there though and I have seen his energy level climb steadily since he got to Knoxville. He has lost 3 pounds since we first met. Please give this sweet guy a forever home. In return, he will love you forever and a day!
If you would like more information about this great little guy, contact his foster mom at email@example.com.
=============== Information for all dogs/adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 Fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please visit the Adoption Information. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN A RESCUE.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your 'new friend' get up and down the East Coast or up and down the West Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
