Needs to have a fenced environment and would benefit from obedience training.
Presenting our loveable Bo Bo. He came to us as an emergency intake from a very full shelter—his owner died, and they had to find a spot for this Golden. He is good with kids, dogs and cats. Our very savvy transporter had this to say about Bo Bo: “He is super friendly with everyone and everything, not a mean bone in his body.” Despite his age, he has plenty of energy. Poor guy is unsure of what’s happening to him. He is not housebroken, so its possible he was an outdoor dog—he was heavily matted and covered in burrs. He is overall healthy but is being treated for stage one heartworm. His foster will keep him quiet for a month and begin the housebreaking. Bo Bo is going to make a wonderful companion and friend for someone looking for a gentle sweet soul.
Foster Update: 4/3/19
Bo Bo….fondly known as “Bo” came into GRIN heartworm positive. He has completed his last round of treatment the end of March and is on the road to recovery. Bo is crate trained as part of his recovery in keeping him calm. He is learning to walk on the leash and is a strong puller but with time, this will improve. The foster family has been working hard to get Bo house trained with much success. Bo enjoys sitting outside and taking in the activity when weather permits. His foster mom is working on basic cues as Bo will sit for yummy treats. Bo will remain on restricted activity till the end of April and then be able to be neutered.
