Meet Champ! BSR 1094
Posted June 5, 2018
Hi everyone, my name is Champ and I am a really good boy. Honestly, my foster mom says I am the best! I weigh 50 pounds and am 9 years old, but don't let my age fool you! I have a lot of pep in my step! I am eligible for a Seniors for Seniors adoption, but really, I’d be great with any adopter at any stage of life!! I love other dogs and make friends very quickly everywhere I go. I make my foster parents laugh every day with my goofy personality. My nub is always wagging. Although I am showing some signs of arthritis, I still look forward to nice long walks and adore my toys. I am fully house trained and crate trained; although, I am so trustworthy that I can be left loose in the house while everyone is gone. I know basic commands like sit, lay down, and I am learning to walk nicely on a leash. I will come when I am called although I have a tendency get side tracked with all of the wonderful smells in the backyard.
I spend a lot of time with my foster family's 1 1/2 year old daughter. I like to walk with her around the house and make sure I am always available if she loses her balance. I'd do anything for her hugs and kisses! I am super patient with her even if she accidentally pulls on my ears. I don't mind because I love children of all ages. I love being close to my foster parents and will follow them on any adventure.
I am working on a few manners that include not looking for food on the table and counters. I do love food so much. I have allergies and will need to stay on a high quality dog food, free of chicken. I had a little hair loss when I came to stay with my foster parents but after getting on a better diet and taking a round of allergy medicine, I've been feeling much better and I look great. Once I started taking my arthritis medicine and feeling a better, I began jumping up when I got very excited. I've been doing much better about this and I am learning how to show all of my happy feelings with all four paws on the ground. I am not a big fan of cats so it best that they are not in my new home. I will bark when someone comes to the door but it's only because I can't wait to say hi!
I will be an amazing companion for a medium to low energy family. Since my knees hurt a little the vet says I shouldn't be over exercised but I should still stay active and healthy. Maybe a nice walk or two a day and some gentle playtime in the home or backyard. I would love to have a doggy friend in the house to keep me company. Respectful children are great too. I will need a fenced in yard since I tend to wonder when my nose gets to sniffing. I would really like a home with little to no stairs. My arthritis makes me wary of going up and down them too much. I will need arthritis medicine everyday to keep me feeling good and the right diet for life. I have lots of life and love to give to the right family! I hope to meet you soon.
Hey everyone! My name is Ginger and I am a beautiful four year old female Boykin. At 38 lbs, my vet thinks I’m in wonderful shape. Basking in the sun and cuddling up on the couch are a few of my favorite things. I had a rough start in life but with a little TLC I’m turning out to be a fabulous companion!
I live with my foster parents and two foster canine siblings who I absolutely adore. They are younger dogs like me and we play continuously. My newly acquired nickname is “Happy Feet” because when I think everyone should wake up in the morning, I do a little dance on the hardwood floors. I am also a big time talker when it comes to dinner time! I get so excited that I’ll howl and bark until I get to eat! Although I’m a sweetheart, I don’t know many commands, except for SIT and OFF. But with a good teacher and repetition I am sure to learn by basic obedience commands quickly!
I really enjoy going on walks around town, but I get so excited and sometimes pull a little. My least favorite thing you ask? CRATES! I tend to get a little noisy and destructive when I am crated. My foster mom has let me have run of the house while she is out because I have proven myself trustworthy. That’s not to say I enjoy being at home alone. I love being with my humans. I enjoy car rides and don’t seem to mind cats. I’ve only seen a tiny person once while with my fosters and I was very gentle. Since living with my foster family I have almost recovered from a really bad urinary tract infection and I am wrapping up treatment for ear infections. I might have seasonal allergies, but right now my symptoms are being managed with a simple antihistamine.
An ideal home for me would be someone who is home the majority of the time since I love having company around. Another young, playful dog would help me come out of my shell. I absolutely love basking in the sun so I’d love my new home to have a front porch or even a fenced in yard would be amazing! Like I said before I’m not 100% trained and will need some continued obedience work to ensure that we have a great life together. Someone who is committed to my training and giving me the good exercise and care that I need would be perfect. All in all I’m a very sweet girl and just need someone very special to love me.
