Say hello to Dobby, a sweet and endearing pup ready to find her forever home. Living in a foster home with two other fosters, two resident dogs, and two cats, Dobby gets along with everyone effortlessly. She's even polite and gentle with the neighborhood kids, especially an 11-year-old who sometimes helps with her care.

Dobby's interactions with other dogs and cats are calm and friendly. She pays no attention to the resident cats and enjoys the company of her canine companions. When humans are away, she does well in her crate, settling down quietly until they return. Although she's still working on her house training, Dobby's improving every day and wears a washable diaper most of the time due to her fear of grass.

Despite being diagnosed with hydrocephalus, Dobby is a resilient and loving pup. She does have some quirks-when she gets excited, she may spin or put her teeth on you gently, but she responds well to soft corrections. A drag leash attached to her collar helps manage her spinning, along with gentle words and petting.

Dobby walks well on a leash but tends to veer to the left, so it's best to walk her on the right side of any potential hazards. She's working on her basic obedience skills, like lying down and staying, but needs more practice with sitting.

This affectionate girl loves to put her head in your lap for cuddles and is very polite when meeting new people. Described as sweet, affectionate, and endearing, Dobby enjoys working on doggie puzzles and has a newfound love for cheese, which helps with her medication.

Dobby would thrive in a calm, quiet home, preferably without young children. She craves attention and will be your loyal sidekick, following you everywhere. If you're looking for a remarkable, loving companion, Dobby is ready to be your best friend. Come meet this quirky and delightful pup!
