My name is Dobby!
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
Dobby can rarely finish a walk around the block without someone commenting on how cute she is. Her huge smile and constantly-wagging tail attract fans everywhere she goes.
When this shiny black beauty first came to APA, she was so malnourished that her ribs stuck out of her frail body. She was in constant pain from a mysterious leg injury, her fur was patchy, and she tested positive for heartworms.
After months of love and attention from shelter caretakers and foster parents, Dobby is now at a healthy weight, has recovered well from knee surgery, and is through her heartworm treatment. She has right sided heart failure but has no symptoms. Through it all, she has kept the same sweet, even-keeled temperament that draws people to her.
Dobby walks well on a leash, enjoys sunbathing and lounging in kiddie pools, and adores meeting new people. She is housetrained and very treat-motivated. While this sweetheart loves humans, she needs to be the only animal in her new home.
Can you give this girl a loving place to spend her retirement?
All APA adoptions come with free behavior assistance through APA's behavior team. And remember, when you adopt a dog from APA, you are saving not one, but two lives - the life of the dog you're bringing into your home, and the next dog APA can save in the adopted dog's place.
