Bob came to ACT after a kind lady negotiated with his owner to release him to us after a lifetime of living in a small, very rusty cage with the door welded shut and situated over a drain, completely exposed to the elements except for a rickety makeshift roof. He spent his first week of freedom huddled up in the corner of our yard, unaware that he now had plenty of room to run around in—or perhaps just too scared to explore this new, wide-open space.
Thankfully, over time, Bob has learned to enjoy his new-found freedom, and can now be seen enjoying the sunshine—and even the rain—on little strolls around The ARK, his new home. He quickly learned to walk on leash, and the staff love taking him out for long walks to expand his horizons even further. He’s not a cuddly dog and won’t be any time soon, as he prefers to be left alone—unless it’s feeding time, in which case he’ll instantly become your best friend until all the food is gone. Bob may be difficult to touch, but he’s easy to love, and we’re honoured to be able to see him free now to do whatever he pleases.
