Pet of the Week – Bob the dog

CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – Bob, an 11-year-old male Rottweiler, is looking for a loving home. Lee Chambers from Dakin Humane Society tells us about Bob and other events going on at Dakin.

Ever heard of a gentle giant? Well now you havethat’s Bob! Don’t let his size fool you, he’s a real sweetheart and an easygoing dog. Bob is in the senior years of his life, so his favorite things to do will be to warm a couch with you and watch some TV, or take a leisurely walk. Older kids are the best bet for him (10 years old and up), and they should meet him first. Bob should be your one and only pet, he doesn’t get along with cats and he’s too much for other dogs. Come meet this lovable lug at Dakin’s Springfield Adoption Center.

Other Events
Valley Gives – Dakin is gearing up for Valley Gives, which happens May 3, and we’re collecting the silliest photos of your pets so we can put together some really fun photo collections for our Facebook page. If you have some photos to submit, let’s see ’em! Please email to and watch our Facebook page during the last week of April to see if your pet is in the lineup!
