Hey guys, Bobbie here!

I originally arrived at Oakwood back in Janurary 2021. When I first arrived I was very scared due to how mistreated I was in Romania. It took me a while to begin to trust people again but I managed to find a home in March 2021. 

In the home I was very loved and the last 14 months I was there I made lots of progress in so many ways. Sadly, I have now come back to Oakwood due to compatibility issues with my family. I am an incredibly loyal boy and tend to bond strongly with one person. For this reason I would prefer a 1 person household that I can give all my love and attention to. The humans said they understand what a huge ask this is though so they will also be happy to look at a 2 person household too, it just may take me a little longer for me to feel safe with meeting 2 new people at the same time. Unfortunately I can really struggle with new people and introductions need to be very slow so that I feel safe - but I promise will be the bravest boy and do my absolute best as I really do want nothing more than to meet my forever family.

Once I trust you, I guarentee that you will have a best friend for life.  My ideal home would have minimal visitors.

I'm a lazy boy who enjoys snoozing in my comfy beds, don't let that fool you though because I am super clever really! I enjoy enrichment and love my snuffle & lick mats. I also really enjoy Obedience and trick training and it seems to entertain the humans when I show off all the cool tricks I know. I also love a blast on our big field, especially with my girlfriend Alex <3

The staff here at Oakwood have been helping me get used to lead walking and I will walk around the centre on a lead just fine but I am very scared of the outside world and therefore haven't managed to go on a proper walk yet, my adopter will need to understand that I may never be a dog that enjoys going on walks but I will enjoy sunbathing in the garden and lots of cuddles and quality time with you.

Things I love:

  • Having a brush!
  • Venison!
  • Chest & butt scratches!


Up until recently, I have been on a single protein venison diet as I have suspected allergies- my ears go red and I scratch them if I eat something I shouldn't. It does seem to be mild allergies and we are currently experimenting what triggers it the most. So far we have found that fish and lamb don't really agress with me. I am now eating a delicious hypo allergenic food that the humans bought me and I am doing great on it. They say it costs no more than normal dog food and I feel amazing on it. They say I have become very puppy like, giddy and silly, in the best possible way. I seem to make them laugh a lot <3

Dogs: I was very undersocialised with other dogs but have made progress with this and have shown I can have dog friends, both male and female, so although I need to live as an only dog I could have a visiting dog friend.

I cannot live with cats.

Full details of return will be given to potential adopters.

I really hope to see your application!
