This week we’d like to feature Ricky Bobby Jr., who, I’ll admit is currently my favorite dog at Oregon Humane. I just love this big guy! Ricky Bobby Jr. - Oregon Humane Society . And, he has a video!
Ricky Bobby Jr (RBJ) is just the sweetest boy. He’s a little over two years old and is a shepard mix who weighs in at a whopping 88 pounds (he could stand to lose a few). He’s such a good boy. He walks well on leash, though pulls a little bit to start. He loves to snuggle and he’s a lap sitter. Yes, I said it. He’s 88 pounds and he likes to sit on people’s laps. He was just sitting on my lap yesterday! He loves to play with toys, with balls- it doesn’t matter! He just loves tossing things around and it’s so sweet to watch him entertaining himself. He loves to run, hike, and swim. He’d be a perfect adventure dog for an outdoorsy person!
He’s also great around kids. He lived with kids from the age of just born to 10 and did great with them. He also likes to play with other dogs….or he did. He did get adopted briefly, but the resident dog bullied him pretty badly so he came back to us the next day. Since then, he can be a bit picky meeting other dogs. The people who briefly adopted him had nothing but great things to say about what a good boy he is, but unfortunately their resident dog wasn’t ready to share them with Ricky. That experience seems to have made Ricky a little skeptical and wary of meeting new dogs lately, so he’ll need to meet any potential canine companions before going home.
Ricky Bobby is just the sweetest, goofiest big boy! He’s such a fun dog to spend time with. He’s really a joy to be around.
Do you think RBJ might be the dog for you? If so, please fill out the questionnaire in his profile and schedule some time to come on down to Oregon Humane Society to meet him. You’ll be glad you did!
