Approximately four weeks ago Hobbs made his journey from the south to Save The Animals Rescue Team II, (START II), the non-profit, all volunteer, animal rescue group located in Englewood to find his forever home.

START could not wait to receive this big lovable boy as he was on the euthanasia list. Hobbs weighs about 76 pounds however so gentle. He is approximately 2 1/2 years old, neutered and up to date on all routine shots. Hobbs is extremely lovable with people of all ages, good with other dogs, but volunteers suggest no cats as they are not quite sure where he stands with them. Volunteers also suggest no infants just due to his size.

Hobbs is a striking mix and has a warm heart of gold. With only 4 weeks at the shelter, he instantly became one of the shelter volunteers' favorite. Due to his size, Hobbs needs room to run and enjoys playing. You can just look deep into his eyes to his all his love not to mention his million-dollar smile!
Hobbs is currently safe and well cared for at Save The Animals Rescue Team II until his forever home can be found. Can this be you? Come visit Hobbs and other furry guest who wait for that special loving home.
