Meet Sully! (BSR #1099) posted 8/21/18
Hi! My name is Sullivan, some people call me Sully for short. I am a 3 year old boy weighing in at around 45lbs. I am working on losing some of my weight right now, but more on that later!
My foster mom absolutely adores me and I love her and my furry siblings. I am a snuggle bug and I love to follow my foster mom around the house while she is doing chores, I am like a shadow, but I don't get underfoot. I love to just sit back and watch all the action. I love all other humans, big and small, and all dogs too! I haven't been around cats, so we would have to try that if you have one at my new house. I never meet a stranger and I love to explore outside. At night, I sleep tucked up next to my foster siblings and foster mom and dream of my forever home.
I know how to sit, stay and I have a pretty good recall. I don't mind being crated for a few hours at a time so you can run errands or go out. I go into my crate willingly but I am also trusted to be left out. I do not chew or destroy anything when I am not crated. If you leave me out, you can find me snoozing on the sofa on my special blanket. I absolutely love car rides and walks! I am up to walking 2 miles twice a day and I get so excited when I see the leash my wiggle butt really gets shaking!
I do have two small issues that my foster mom and I have been working on. One is my weight. I am a little too heavy right now so I am trying to lose another 10 pounds to get to my ideal weight. I love to walk and it is helping me. Also, sometimes I have submissive urination. I only do it when I feel like I am in trouble or I am not familiar with a situation. I have really made progress and my foster mom is very proud of me! I think a schedule and knowing what to expect has given me the extra confidence I need! And of course, it is all about trust.
My dream home would be with folks who will love me, walk me and snuggle with me and who can commit to continuing to work with me with patience, gentleness and love. In my previous life, I was left alone a good bit so if you are home a lot, I would love that. In my new home I would really like to have another canine sibling for companionship. Older, respectful children would be fine. I need to keep working to get to my ideal weight, so help with that would be appreciated too. If you think I would be a good fit for your family I would like to hear from you! I am excited to get to my forever home and get to know my new routine! So please apply to be my new family and until then you can find me sitting in my foster mom's lap!!
Hi everyone, I am Charlie Girl. I am a young (about 3 yrs old), female, 29 pound, active pup—full of energy and in need of lots of love and training! I love people and am super friendly. My fosters are the best and they say I am very sweet. You can see why I bonded with them right away. Most of all, I want to be with my people all the time. When my foster folks are watching TV, I like to come and jump in their laps. If my foster dad is in his office and he calls me, I come at full speed and jump in his office chair for a hug. It is reported that I am good with children and cats. In my previous life, before coming to Boykin Spaniel Rescue, I spent a lot of time outside. You wouldn’t believe how nice it is to be inside for a change! As it is new to me, I am still learning good inside manners. My curiosity occasional takes me counter surfing to explore new scents or climbing onto furniture. But, I promise I want so badly to learn.
When my people come home, I’m anxious to greet them (who wouldn’t be?!), so I often jump, which I’m learning is not the proper ‘handshake’. I am crate trained but have earned the privilege (woohoo!) of being free to roam loose in the kitchen with my foster sister while my people are at work. At night, I sleep on a dog bed in the bedroom. Since I am still learning how to come when called, a secure, fenced yard is necessary. Right now, I have a big backyard and love to run and play fetch. I want to be active with my people. Play with me! Teach me things! I’m eager!! No one in my old life taught me to walk on a leash or not to dig at the gate…more lessons I guess! Playing with my foster canine sister is fun, but I would rather be petted by my humans or chewing on a kong.
The vet has noted that I have a recessed vulva, which just needs to be watched and kept dry. Otherwise, I am healthy and happy.
I am eager to find my forever family, who will be active and interested in doing lots of things with me. I’m still learning, so training (inside manners, basic obedience; sit, come, stay, down, walking on leash, place etc.) would bring me from good to GREAT!! If there is another dog to keep me company, that would be good, but it’s not a deal breaker. Older and respectful children would be fine. Most of all, I want a family who will be involved with me and give me the attention and love that I need to be a great Boykin!! Charlie
My name is Stephi (short for Stephanie). I am a 7 year old female, 36 pounds and in good health. I was well loved by my previous family, but they were unable to continue to care for me. My foster mom says I seem to adapt to change quickly.
I love to eat (I could lose a couple of pounds) and I like to play ball. I get along with other dogs and share a bed with my foster canine brother. We even eat next to each other! My foster mom has a cat, but ho hum I really don’t have much interest. I love to sleep in bed with my foster mom and I wait to be invited up. I love cuddling on the sofa at night, getting my belly rubbed and being petted. If my foster mom stops petting me I just look at her with my golden eyes and take my paw to her hand to get her to continue.
Walking is one of my favorite things. We go for a 2 mile walk everyday. I love to smell everything and to look for squirrels. I hear that I walk pretty well on a leash with a minimum of pulling. I know some commands: sit, shake and lie down and I wait patiently to go out after my leash has been clipped on. Sometimes I get so excited at play time that I have jumped up and nipped. I calm down quickly but need a family that will keep things calm. I am learning to play with balls and toys.
I like to ride in the car and am happy sitting in the back seat. I am told that I am very inquisitive and that my manners are very good. I really enjoy being with people. My foster mom says I have interacted positively with everyone that I have met so far.
The best family for me would be a family who would take me places with them. Older, respectful children would be fine. Another dog sibling would be a good idea so I don’t get lonely. My forever family should be committed to daily walks and good exercise for me. My foster mom says anyone would be fortunate to have me as an addition to their family.
Boykin Spaniel Rescue, Inc. prides itself in our dedication to evaluating the health, temperament and strengths of each dog. Sometimes dogs are with us a month or so, sometimes it is much longer. We assure you, the wait is worth it!
