Anyone in need of a good friend?

I try to keep unrelated/personal issues off my blog, but this girl just breaks my heart. She really needs a home ASAP, or else she'll be put to sleep. It sounds like she would make an amazing companion animal - and with all that shepherd in her, I'm sure she's quite the smarty! And those ears!

If you can foster/adopt her call (212) 427-8273 (email might be too slow because time is of the essence!) I'd take her but my roommate's cat is deathly afraid of dogs!

Or past on this info if you know anyone interested...






More About Bobo
Can anyone find sympathy and love for an older gal? Bobo is a mature, (about 8 to 10-year-old) all American (Shepherd mix) "mutt" who was originally abandoned by her family to the city pound when they "moved." Bobo quickly attached and endeared herself to one of the shelter volunteers. She is a very loving and devoted dog. We thought we had a foster for Bobo, but the people reneged at the last minute, saying they "didn't want to get attached" to an older dog because Bobo "might not get adopted." Is that the new reality for cats and dogs who get dumped after being years in a family? Do we as a culture now say that they are "too old" to care about or consider? There is still a lot of life, vitality and love in Bobo. Her health is good and she is perfectly capable of going for long walks with anyone who can open their heart and home to her. Bobo is WONDERFUL WITH CHILDREN, TOTALLY HOUSEBROKEN AND GOOD WITH OTHER DOGS AND CATS! Sadly, Bobo now faces death in the city pound as we have no foster or adoptive home to send her to. Time is quickly running out for this loyal and loving dog who has so much love to give. Can you help us save Bobo? if so, please CALL US AS SOON AS POSSIBLE (Not email!) at (212) 427-8273. Bobo's life is literally on the line unless someone can find it in their heart to care about an older gal.

How about adopting her and then take her to a shelter that does not kill animals. They do exist.

She's so sweet. I wish I could help, but I already have 3 cats - 1 more than my landlord knows about. I hope someone can take her!!!

She is so sweet. I wish I could adopt her...but we're not local and my husband is a cat person (1 doxie is his limit). I hope she finds a good home! Poor Bobo...she is adorable!

Wish she were closer to Atlanta..

The challenge with "no kill" shelters is that they tend to be totally full... especially now in this economy.

She is a total cutie though. I wish I could save them all! (proud mommie of three beautiful rescue dogs).

I heart dogs. I really do. And this breaks my heart. I have one... and one is enough for now in our small house/yard. But one day I plan to rescue A LOT of them!

You might try contacting Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue, although they may be too far from you, I think Virginia, but they may know of a no-kill shelter near you...Almost Heaven takes in older dogs like this one. I will fwd. your blog post to the director but you may want to contact them directly...this is their website:

I will be saying a special prayer that someone will rescue this pup!
God bless!

I just sent an email to the director and also put a tweet about it on twitter...if anyone reading this has a twitter account try sending out a message...twitter seems to be one of the fastest ways of getting the word out in such an emergency.
