Meet Josh! BSR 1048
Hi there! Aren’t I a cutie?? My name is Josh, and believe it or not, I am 11 years young! I know Iook young for my age, and really, it’s only the cranky hips that give me away as a senior, but the medication my fosters put me own has really helped a lot! I’m a bigger boy but sweet and goofy. I like to “talk” to you and keep you company, and am looking for my special someone to love me. I have always been an outdoor dog, but my fosters are helping me adjust to time inside the house, and this thing called “house training.” I’m learning!! I crate up well for the night inside, and I know big guys like me aren’t supposed to be afraid of things, but if you reach into my crate for my collar, it kinda scares me. Maybe its just that I am not a morning dog, but really all you need to do is open my crate door and let me wake up and come out on my own. (Maybe I should try that coffee stuff that seems to help my fosters get started in the morning?) I am an outdoorsy guy, and LOVE to be outside as much as possible in a fenced yard or kennel run, since that is how I had always lived before, and I think I could really enjoy a farm or large yard to keep you company in. I was raised with another dog, and so long as I am introduced to new dogs carefully, I’m fine with them. Oh and one more thing…for the sake of my hips, I’d like to stay in the south where the winters are milder, if you don’t mind!
I know I have a lot needs, but mostly I need someone of my own! Is that person YOU?
Josh is being fostered in Boiling Springs, S. Carolina.
Hi everyone! I am Bobo, a male Boykin about 5-6 years old, but my foster mom says I act a whole lot younger. I am about 40 pounds and have a lovely, wavy chocolate brown coat and am a very handsome and happy fella to have found my way to BSR. My foster family has been so super in helping me get rid of these nasty heart worms and in jump starting my obedience training and teaching me how to be a well mannered pup. I am active, playful and even goofy sometimes to be getting the love and attention that I did without for so long.
I know SIT, STAY and I am learning DOWN and how not to pull on the leash when we walk. I am learning to take treats “easy” and be patient for my meals. I am so excited to eat I do a happy dance with my front feet and it makes my whole body wiggle. I love eating so much that I need to slow down with a special bowl. I am crate trained and go right in (I get a treat in there!) .
I am super sweet and get along with everyone; humans, dogs and even kids and cats. I am young and full of vigor and will need a good bit a structured exercise like any Boykin. I love to run and I think I might really enjoy swimming too since I like going in the water at my foster’s boat ramp. Most of all, my foster mom says I am a really good boy.
In my forever home, I will need people willing to continue my training and committed to giving me the exercise and attention that I need. A fenced yard would be great as long as you don’t plan on leaving me out there for long periods of time. I need and deserve quality human time and love after my hard start. Another dog who would play with me would be great too, as well as respectful children.
Max is an “in your pocket” , 8 year-old, dog; he wants to be where you are, and will lay at your feet or on a his bed next to wherever you are. He is house broken and loves walks, and especially enjoys rolling in the grass. He is overweight, so walking is good for him. He walks wonderfully on a leash, doesn’t pull at all. He is not hyper or a big runner, but rather more laid back and content with slow walks and having his head and back scratched. He might do a slow lope sometimes during a walk, but he is not a strong runner. Max will retrieve sticks, and will play some with other dogs.
Max knows basic obedience commands, like come and sit. He willingly goes into his crate if you ask him and will stay while his foster family goes out, with the company of his foster canine companions. He is not a big barker, but if other dogs are barking or if someone rings the doorbell, he will bark. He gets along wonderfully with other dogs and cats. He travels well in the car as well, although, he might need a lift up and down out of the car since he is overweight.
Max would do good in a home that has other dogs and friendly cats would be fine too. A owner that works from home or can take him to work, or a canine companion to keep his company when the humans are out. He would be a perfect partner for a person or family looking for their forever dog companion, that is their constant friend and always there for them. He will need to continue help losing some weight which will give him a little more energy. Max spreads his kindness around, he can love multiple people in a family, he is cheerful and excited always to see his foster family whenever they greet him.
