Hobie’s furever mom, Rhonda, adopted him through Russell Rescue of CA in March of 2014.  She had a beautiful female Jack Russell Terrier named Gracie, who lived to the wonderful age of 17! When Rhonda knew she was going to lose Gracie, she started looking at the Russell Rescue website and reached out to those in charge, to establish a relationship with them for when the time came. Rhonda knew that she was not one of those people who needs a year to mourn. She knew she would need another furbaby right away to help her deal with the grief of losing Gracie.Hobie in rescue

Rhonda was offered Hobie as soon as they had him in their foster care. She saw Hobie’s picture and knew right away that they were meant to be! She wanted a boy this time, because Gracie was her Girl. Rhonda felt so guilty even looking at his picture, because Gracie was still with her, even though she was ill. Rhonda told RRCA that she loved Hobie, but it would not be fair to either of them to bring him home right now.

Two days later, Gracie told her mom it was time to go.

Rhonda knew right away it was because she wanted Hobie to have his forever home.  Gracie was able to go, knowing that her mom would be okay and would have someone to love. Gracie sent Hobie to Rhonda. Rhonda picked up him 8 days after losing Gracie, and she loves him more as each day passes. She cannot believe how lucky she is to have had the perfect girl, and now, the perfect boy. Hobie is silly, fun and so smart! He also LOVES to snuggle and give kisses. Rhonda told Hobie that she was in this for the long haul, so he’d better be too!Hobie 7 Hobie 2
