Meet Bryant! BSR 1153
Howdy, my name is Bryant! I am a 2.5-year-old male Boykin, and I come in around 40 pounds. I am a young, fun loving, high-energy dog. I came to BSR with a few issues (don’t we all?) and my fosters have been working with me and I have made good strides! My biggest wish is to find my forever home with people who will be my strong coaches, love me, play with me and help me be the best Boykin possible!
I love my people and prefer being near you at all times. I am always interested in what you are doing. I have had issues with other male dogs in the past. I have been working on this everyday, and my foster sister has been helping me become better at socializing with my peers. My foster folks say I have improved! However, my new forever parents will need to continue to work with me and manage closely my interactions with other dogs whom I do not know.
I began my life as a hunting dog but in foster care, I found that I do not enjoy it as much as my people thought I would. Sure, I like to play fetch and retrieve, and most loud noise really don't bother me , butI haven’t shown much interest in retrieving in water. And I am really hard on bumpers I am told! My foster dad thinks that with a lot of training and time that I might possibly show more interest in hunting, but since I am still unsure about other male dogs, I might not be so good thing in the field with other dogs. But as a companion dog, I excel! I love to fetch and swim! I also love a good chew toy! I’m not going to lie, I have chewed up a soft toy or two and even sucked down a sock when no one was looking! So I need to be monitored so I don’t eat something that would cause me problems. I respond to basic commands, such as here, sit, and stay. I prefer to sleep in my crate every night, but do not mind occasionally snuggling in bed or taking a siesta on the couch.
My ideal home would include a human parent that will spend a lot of time with me. I do best with a good routine that I can count on. I need strong human leadership so I don’t have to make my own decisions and someone to provide on going training to keep me on my toes. Daily, structured exercise is a must for me. Walks, games of fetch, especially in the water (a pool, pond or ocean would be wonderful) and obedience classes would be terrific. I would probably do best as an only dog, but might be ok with a non-dominant female. Most of all, my humans need to understand how and be comfortable managing my interactions with other dogs and to keep me out of trouble. Oh, and no small kids! My foster dad says I have a strong drive to learn and to please. I know I would make the right person a super Boykin buddy!
Hi, everyone. I’m Zoey and I am a laid back, easy-going female Boykin. Let me tell you I am loving life since I landed with Boykin Spaniel Rescue! I weigh 42 pounds and am 8 years young. Don't let my age fool you..I have so much life in me my foster parents say I act like a 2 year old! I have a beautiful soft coat and love having my back scratched.
I get so excited about my life now! I especially love men .....I mean I love my foster mom a lot, but when my foster dad and foster big brother come back, I just light up! I want to ride around in your truck, with the windows down! Oh boy what a life! I enjoy being outside and exploring the world and also naps on the porch. I can sleep in a crate but at my foster home I just sleep by the bed at night and under the bed in the daytime. I can be left alone, too, without being crated.
Right now I am living with two other Boykin cousins and we get along just great. They love chasing frisbees and balls outside and I enjoy watching. But inside I will go for a tennis ball sometimes. I like children and will roll on my back for belly rub and then just sit and enjoy their company .
I am working on my leash manners because sometimes I pull. But it is just because I want to explore everything! And I do love my dinner! I smile and wiggle every time! Oh what a wonderful life this is!
My ideal home would be with people who are around a lot and are looking for a companion to go everywhere with them and be their ride along buddy. Since I love being outdoors, I would want someone who will take me on long walks. If you live in the country even better! Maybe, someone who will work on my basic obedience skills and leash walking. Other canine companions, who are gentle and non-domineering would be good company.
