Man Changes Mind About Little Dogs

April Livingston | February 26th, 2019

Bobby Humphreys is a competitive bodybuilder from Boonsboro, Maryland. When it came to dogs, he was strictly a self proclaimed “big dog guy.” He would even make fun of friends seen walking their little dogs and wasn’t sure why anyone would want such a small dog. That is, until he gave a little dog a chance. Bobby and his wife have always had Rottweilers, and he has always loved their imposing and regal look. Then, everything changed: Bobby’s wife left and he suffered a terrible shoulder injury that required surgery. He fell into a depression and began drinking heavily. A friend of his, named Constance Rogers, asked him to care for her dog as he was healing from surgery because she was getting kicked out of her home. The dog, named Lady, was a chihuahua.

Bobby wasn’t a fan of little dogs or of Lady, who was known to have a bit of an “attitude problem,” but he agreed to help his friend. Rather than make her sit in a kennel all day, Bobby let her out to watch TV with him one day and she jumped right into his lap—and the rest is history. He fell in love with her over the course of several months, but eventually it was time for her to head back to her home. So, Bobby did the unthinkable: he found a little dog to adopt. He adopted Kira, a one year old Chihuahua who had aggression issues with food. Then, he adopted a Chihuahua named Harley and her sister Quinn. Then along came Bella—yet another Chihuahua. The “big dog guy” was a little dog guy now—and he realized how many little dogs needed help.

So, Bobby started the Big Guy, Littles World Sanctuary and is now up to 37 little dogs. Bobby has realized he loves dogs of all sizes, and is now doing everything he can to make them all feel safe.
