Dog Returned to Shelter After House Dogs Bully Him, Longs for a Permanent Home 

When you set your eyes on Bobo — a 3-year-old, 52.40-pound American Bulldog Mix — for the first time, it’s hard to tell he’s dealt with so much at his young age. Anyone who interacts with him at the shelter is met with a wagging tail, a hopeful look in his eyes, and a playful demeanor that instantly reveals just how charming and lovable he is. Bobo’s bubbly, good-spirited nature puzzles staff at the Humane Society Broward County, though, because his story is one that truly tugs at the heartstrings.  (watch video below)

Dog Returned to Shelter After House Dogs Bully Him, Longs for a Permanent Home 

If there’s a wish that unites all shelter dogs, it’s that they find a safe home environment where they’ll never have to worry about their newfound happiness being cut short abruptly. Unfortunately, shelter pups like Bobo relate too well with the opposite of this wish. 

Bobo’s life took an unlucky turn when his previous adopter returned him to the shelter after other house dogs ganged up on him. Given his friendly disposition, Bobo couldn’t understand why the rest of the household canines made his life a living hell. His everyday life was marred by fear and uneasiness, certainly not the kind of life he envisioned when his excited self walked out of the shelter with his new family. 

So Much Love to Give, Nobody to Share it With

Whenever Bobo hears footsteps approaching his enclosure, his face immediately lights up, a true testament to his desperation for a new home. He has lots of love and positive vibes to give, and is only waiting for that special person to share all this with.  

Bobo’s heart-wrenching experiences at his previous home paint a clear picture of the importance of having a meet-and-greet session between your household dogs and the shelter dog you’re eyeing to take home. This is often a crucial step to finding out whether there’s the slightest chance of your current dogs getting along with the shelter pup you’re planning to adopt.


Still waiting 💔 Sweet fellow Bobo is still waiting for a forever family 😔 He was adopted once and then returned because the other dogs in the house turned on him 💔 This was very frightening for Bobo and because of this, we require a dog meet up here at the shelter if you already have a dog. Bobo is a playful 3-year-old who loves getting attention from people ❤️ He has been through so much in his short life, including treatment for heartworm disease, but he is ready for a new beginning! He’s hoping that a loving family is reading this right now and will help give him the new life he is dreaming of 🙏 If you cannot adopt, please share Bobo’s post 🙏 Bobo’s adoption fee has been kindly paid for by Doge Rescue ❤️ To meet Bobo, please fill out an application at (link is in bio) and then come on in. The shelter located at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale, FL., the adoption department opens daily at 11 a.m. If you have questions call 954-989-3977 ext. 6 ❤️ #rescuedog #shelterdog #adoptme #adoptdontshop #goodboy #fortlauderdale #florida #dogvideos #doglovers #bulldog #americanbulldog #americanbully #foryou #dogs #dogoftheday #dogsoftiktok #dogshelter #animalshelter #foryou #foryoupage #pittie #pittiesofinstagram #pittbull #bullybreed #pittielove #staffy #bluestaffy #staffylove #saddog #bulldogs

Bobo is still waiting for a forever family after he was adopted but resident dogs attacked him.

By observing these initial interactions and with the help of shelter staff, you’ll be able to make the informed decision of taking home a pup that will be a perfect match for your existing dog(s).

Not to mention, Bobo’s surrender to the shelter also highlights the need to supervise interactions between the newly adopted dog you’ve just brought home and your other dogs, particularly during the first few days. In doing so, you’ll get to teach your existing dogs the boundaries they shouldn’t cross when interacting with your new pup.

What Bobo Desires More than Anything…..

Beneath Bobo’s zestfulness and resilient spirit is a pup clinging to hope that someone will soon walk through the shelter doors and commit to making the years ahead of him the best years of his life. 

His longing for a forever home isn’t just about having a permanent roof over his head; it’s about finding a home that will offer the emotional safety he needs to thrive beyond his wildest dreams. To prevent a repeat of Bobo’s previous situation, the shelter has established a mandatory meet-and-greet session for potential adopters who already have a dog (s).

If you’re out there dying to give Bobo a stable, loving, and comfortable environment where he can freely be himself and not have to constantly watch his back, please reach out to the Humane Society Broward County for more information.
