Any other specifics: Bobby McGee (fka Bobby Bullrun) was found in Rural Tennessee where he was trying to play with bulls in a pasture. The bulls and their owners didn't appreciate that so much, so he was turned in to animal control. This spunky hunk is the best of both worlds. He has a high gear and a low gear. If you're someone who enjoys watching zoomies, playing fetch and tug, and snuggling and taking naps, you're going to fall madly in love with this sweet boy. He sometimes forgets his manners and needs some good structure in the home to be reminded of boundaries and protocols. Bobby is ultimately a very shapeable, intelligent, and attentive subject with lots of love to give. When sitting on the porch with him, he'll likely shower you with neck and ear kisses until you tell him to stop, at which time he'll trade the kissing for "snoofing" where he sniffs out and poofs hot air down your neck. He's definitely a charmer, and he's one of our favorite personalities.

Adoption Fee: $185.00
BREEDS: We are not breed experts. The breed(s) listed for each adoptable are best guesses or suggestions.
PLEASE NOTE: We are a non-profit organization without municipal or government funding. Veterinary/Medical expenses are constant for an animal rescue. Our adoption fees not only help to provide vetting and care for the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heartworm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need in order to be made available for adoption.
Please understand that adopting an animal is a LIFETIME COMMITMENT to that animal and there will be veterinary expenses throughout their life that can often cost several hundreds, if not thousands of dollars (without pet insurance), especially without annual checkups and preventative care. As a potential family for this pet you are responsible for their safety and that includes keeping them on your property.
***If you are not in the middle Tennessee area, transport can potentially be arranged to approved homes, depending on distance and local adaptability. We normally do not allow adoptions outside of 1.5 hours driving distance.
Thank you for choosing to adopt, foster, or aid in the rescue efforts of RARE!
