Update on homeless woman’s dog, ‘Bobo’

There is an important update about Bobo, the dog with the swollen muzzle who belongs to a homeless woman in California. On Friday, the Facebook page, Maria Sanchez and the pups of SBC Shelter (Save the Squishies) announced that Bobo had been located and he was en route to an emergency veterinary hospital.

Within the past hour, the latest on his condition was posted to the page followers:

“Bobo Update this morning from Leilani @Tazzy Fund’s Rescue (she is coordinating all of his medical):
He has been sleeping a lot, he is resting real comfortable. He has an E collar on because he does not like to be examined or touched. He keeps trying to rip out his catheter. They can’t muzzle him when needed because of his face so they’re just leaving the E collar on. He keeps trying to rip out his catheter.

The doctor is consulting with the surgeon to see if we are going to do a CAT scan and see if there is any chance of opening his airways and nostrils more for more comfortable breathing.

Please stay tuned for more updates as soon as I receive them, I will share.

Thank you to everyone who is praying for him, he is just so loved.”

The senior pit bull has been living the Riverside area with his owner, who is homeless – his veterinary needs have not been addressed, as is painfully evident by his shocking appearance. Though a diagnosis has not yet been made, it appears that Bobo may be suffering from some type of advanced cancer.

Fundraising efforts for Bobo can be found at this link.

    Poor baby, I’ve been trying to keep up on his progress, I hope there is something that can be done for him. It’s evident after viewing a couple of video’s that his Mom loves him very much. Keeping them in our prayers and bless Maria Sanchez she is one awesome person!

      An E-collar is a cone. The name E-collar comes from the huge fancy collars worn mostly by women in the Elizabethan days.

        Are u for real? Do u not understand? That poor dog was suffering. He had broken bones in his face, he had bones broken near his eyes due to the growth. He could barely breathe. How would u think letting him live out however long he had would be ok? I cant understand the thinking of stupid people

      • linda says:

        He was in pain and suffering. They did tests and had a specialist look at him it was determined it was an inoperable cancerous tumor.

  2. Darla says:

    I’m glad they located him. At least he has a chance now. The lack of medical care earlier may cost him his life. 🙁 Praying he’ll be okay.

    It’s a good thing that Bobo has such a great support team! Looking at just the pictures there are 2 major issues going on here! First and most important is his ability to breath! The second being the amount of pain he’s in! Address these 2 things then you can address the issues with his teeth!

    Bobo’s cancer was very aggressive, he had lots of infection, difficulty breathing because of the advanced cancer, and was humanely euthanized yesterday at approx 8:00 PM. Rest in peace, poor sweet Bobo – this cancer was left untouched for over a year. POS owner.

        The owner did not let him suffer. They repeatedly took him to the vet. U know nothing. Don’t assume things based on the one sided story you read. You are all blind sheep.

      • Barkley's Mom says:

        Ranee, I take it you are a friend of these women. If they took him to the vet, then the vet was worthless and only took their money and let them leave with a very ill dog that was suffering. Bobo’s muzzle didn’t get that way overnight. Whether treatment could have prevented this poor dog’s suffering we will never know because they were more interested in watching him get worse and worse without seeking out true help. As far as one side of the story, I would love to hear their side where they trashed and stole items from a hotel room that had been provided for them. i would love to know how they justify what they did when a lot of people were trying to help them and Bobo. And how do they justify not being with the dog they supposedly loved so much when the determination was made that he was suffering too much and needed to be put out of his misery.

      • linda says:

        We did do our homework BITCH! He was seen by more than 1 vet including a specialist! BTW what happened to all the items that Darci stole from the hotel?

  12. Finet m. Trinidad says:

    Was owner’s fault,because when we have a animal we have to take care about then,every 3 months we have to take them to the doctor for check,THEY DEPEND OF US,THEY ARE OUR LITTLE BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE ABOUT THEM NO MATTER WHAT… WE SHOULD DO IT WITH THEM WHAT WE WISH THE ANGELS OF HAVEN DO IT WITH US!!!.

      Perhaps because the donations were sent to Riverside where he had to be PTS. He had broken bones throughout his face, couldn’t breath that well and had trouble eating and your point?

  15. Mary says:

    The truth will come out soon enough. These woman had taken the dog to the vet 3 times and were given steroids and antibiotics which made the “cancer?” Go down. No one has ever seen proof that this is cancer still. Let’s say the specialty vet did conclude it was cancer, wouldn’t it be up to the owners to decide when to euthenize their baby?? Instead BoBo was transferred without their knowledge to riverside. They were called and asked whAt to do with his ashes. They weren’t told gently the dog has cancer . It’s time we put him to sleep. Or, You need to spend a little time with him, maybe buy him an ice cream cone and then we can take him. They were completely blindsided and left in Los Angeles and told he on his way back to Riverside! This is why the room was trashed!!!!!! Wouldn’t you do the same???!!!!! They slept on an overpass in unfamiliar territory for two nights!!! By the way, the phone cord was not cut, it was thrown! Maybe all of you heartless people should maybe take a step back and think about what you are saying about them. They have feelings and are human and this really hurts them. They loved BoBo more than life itself. Now the are receiving. Horrible threats and hate. He weighed 75 lbs and still played with them!!! Isn’t it their decision to decide when they feel it’s time? Besides, they knew him better than anyone!!! If this happened to me, I would be doing more than trashing the hotel room! They didn’t care about the damn hotel room or the damn contents that were taken! They did that out of anger and frustration! They didn’t even get to say goodbye to their baby!! They trusted these people that promised that nothing would be done to BoBo without their concent! This whole story is horrific. They weren’t called like was stated. They were outside and supposed to be picked up at 11:00 am to go see him and were never picked up!!!! That’s why they called the cops!!! Put yourself in their shoes!!! I’m not saying the dog didn’t need to be put down, clearly something was very wrong. What I am saying is that IT WAS NOT THEIR RIGHT OR CHOICE TO PUT THEIR DOG DOWN!!!!!!! PLEASE STOP THE HATEFUL COMMENTS !!! And please get them the dogs ashes! They want them!

      It is AGAINT THE LAW to let ANY animal suffer to this extent! BOBO had bones broken in his face from this tumor! YOU ARE AN ANIMAL ABUSER!!! YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE SINGLE USABLE BRAIN CELL IN YOU HEAD!!! It a total miscarriage of justice that this horrible waste of human flesh isn’t sitting in a prison cell for the next 5 years! TRUE AND COMPLETE LOVE OF A PET INCLUDES NOT LETTING THEM SUFFER! AND THE PROOF OF YOUR MISSING BRAIN IS IN THINKING THAT THIS SWEET DOG WAS NOT SUFFERING IMMENSELY!! Nobody can change the STUPID that you and your animal abusing friends are afflicted with,STUPID AND EVIL OF THE HIGHEST ORDER!!! I just wish I could project on to you and your animal abusing cohorts the pain this dog had to live with,I don’t think that any of you could of endured it for even 5 minutes! Then they feed him Motrin to boot! Just goes to show how little you clowns know about dogs,and how good they are at hiding their suffering. I HAVE SAID MY “THANK YOU SO MUCH GOD” prayers that this sweet dog is not suffering,suffering,suffering anymore! You are just as ignorant and selfish as your animal abusing buddies for thinking there was nothing wrong with whole nightmare! I’m %1,000 convinced that this monster owner was using BoBo’s plight as a prop to get people to give her money to use for God knows what! NOBODY HAS THE RIGHT TO LET AN ANIMAL SUFFER,AND SUFFER IMMENSELY LIKE YOU BUNCH OF ASSHOLES! You all are only thinking of yourselves,you bunch of inhumane jerks!! I will NEVER,NEVER,EVER FORGET BOBO AND HIS VIDEO,EVER! THIS WAS ANIMAL CRUELTY AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL! I only wish this whole incident didn’t happen sooner,so that sweet BoBo didn’t suffer as long as he did! I think all of us animal lovers need to stop responding to these animal abusers women because we can’t change the stupidity and selfish evil that they are made of! THANK YOU MARIA❤GOD BLESD MARIA❤

    • linda says:

      Really you think trashing the room and stealing is ok for retaliation? Then you’re an asshole! There are other ways to display anger. It certainly didn’t leave much to Bobo’s legacy. No one should damage nor steal because they’re angry. Children pull that shit. In so far as your other claims….Maria posted daily details on Bobo while he was under their care and posted pictures via email from the hotel which showed how ungrateful your fucking friend was. Sorry your story is only giving excuses for such barbaric behavior from an ungrateful bitch.

    • Barkley's Mom says:

      Well thank you for clarifying and “justifying” why these women stole and trashed a hotel room, And explaining why they didn’t accept an Uber ride to Riverside to comfort Bobo the dog they “loved more than life itself”. Although is is hard to receive phone calls when you have ripped the phone out of the wall. They had no intentions of putting Bobo out of his misery, they were going to take him back on the street and allow him to suffocate in agony. I’m sure they do have feelings, they care immensely for themselves, your statement “They didn’t care about the damn hotel room or the damn contents that were taken!” pretty much says it all. We “heartless” people prayed and gave money to help them and their dog only to watch as they did this to the people helping them. How you can say they were “blindsided” when we have all seen pictures and videos of this suffering dog, is absurd. Unless they were high on their wacky tobacky, they knew he was suffering, and they knew the suffering needed to end. So spin their situation anyway you want, you will not garner any sympathy from me for them after seeing what they did!

    If she was trying to disguise who she is do you think she would use her real name when she did the post? Go find something to do besides talk crap! She has no reason to grateful. She was taken advantage of and stupid people like you wanna comment when you have no facts. You’re believing the false fraudulent information you were given. You people that just jump on the bandwagon of bullshit disgust me. I will continue to stand up for this misconstrued situation and have Darci’s back, because I know the truth. Apologies to Darci will be in order but none of you will admit you wrongly followed a trail of lies.

  18. Barkley's Mom says:

    What ‘false fraudulent information” are you talking about? We have plenty of facts! What shall we apologize to Darci for, her trashing a motel room, stealing from that room, being too selfish to go be with Bobo when an Uber ride had been offered? Of course it’s hard to get a phone call when you have torn the phone out of the wall. She needs to be apologizing to all the people that gave money and prayed for her and Bobo. I fail to see how her Dog getting the care he needed, her being given a place to stay is taking advantage of her. I know many of us will think twice before jumping on the “bandwagon” to help someone like her again!

    Tina ignore that jerk! THERE WAS NOTHING ILLEGAL DONE in BoBo’s case except by the asshole who let him suffer needlessly! I say bring it on,then arrest that animal abuser for vandalism! Wasn’t Animal Control involved,to prevent the animal abuser from taking BoBo back? IT IS A CRIME TO DENY YOUR PET VET CARE! It’s called ANIMAL CRUELTY! So what if the animal abuser took BoBo to a vet once or twice,she was POISONING HIM WITH MOTRIN ON TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE! If he wasn’t in pain then why the Fu*k was she feeding him Motrin? YUP! Let’s go to court,won’t change the facts and the animal abuser will be tossed out on her ass! I STILL HOPE SHE GETS ARRESTED FOR VANDALISM AND ANIMAL CRUELTY!! The ONLY one who broke any laws in BoBo’s was his so called owner! WHERE THE FU*K WAS THE COMPASSION FOR BOBO?? She lost her panhandling prop so now she’s mad!! What a bunch of freaking jerks!!! You can’t fix stupid!!
