Meet Bima! #1307 ADOPTION PENDING
Meet Scout! BSR #1303 posted 6/6/21
Hi there! I am Scout. Don’t let my gray muzzle fool you...I am a handsome and youthful 7 years old! I am 37 pounds, down from 43 when I came into care. The vet said I would have to work hard at getting healthy and I have! I had lots to deal with: parasites, heartworms, various infections and lacerations. But, good nutrition and the vet care helped me get healthy, and now I am ready for my new life in a forever home all my own!
Don't get me wrong...I love my current digs and foster family! There is a Boykin friend who lives here, and he has taught me how to live in a home since I was a stray picked up by a local shelter and didn't seem to have any understanding of those particular skills at first. I love learning the rules and routine! I get praise for all my progress and I have made a LOT of progress! My shelter days are firmly in the rear view mirror now!
My favorite things are getting regular meals and treats, and I have learned to expect them and can now avoid counter surfing. My vocabulary grows daily. Walks on nature paths and riding in the car are FUN! I had no idea what leash walks were about, and now I find I may have to remind my foster when she runs late. I have also learned that peeing inside is unacceptable. So, I have learned to curb my drinking and go to door when I need to go out, although I am reminded to go out frequently in case I forget.
I hate crates and feeling trapped, so I focus on how to avoid them by learning good inside behavior (see, I am a SMART boy!). I help my foster vacuum and work in the yard; loud noises do not bother me! I don’t understand fluffy toys or balls but raw bones, especially filled with peanut butter, make me smile.
My ideal home will be with a family who stays close by and takes me with them when they are on the go. I want and need structure and routine and thrive on it. I would do well with folks who will nurture my continued growth and evolution. I like other dogs (don’t know about cats) and people/children but really want to be the center of attention with 2-3 walks a day.
Life is really good and you don’t want to miss a chance to get to know me!
My name is Montague Longfellow but my friends call me Monty! I am a nine-year-old, 45 pound male covered in beautiful curls. I have been with my foster mom for some time now, and she can't stop kissing me. She tells me all of the time how handsome and sweet I am! I am a southern gentleman who gets along with everyone and other pets; I even share my foster mom with three other dogs and three cats. The cats are very funny~ they like to swish their tails under my nose!!!!! I love children and met a little girl this morning in a stroller...she loved petting me and I gave her a kiss!
I am a very patient guy when it comes to just about everything. I walk great on a leash. I am a hunting dog you know, so my nose is usually stuck to the ground checking out all of the smells. My foster mom takes us over to Clemson University to walk on the Lake Hartwell hike. I have met so many new friends there as it is a popular place for dogs to run and play...we even leave each other "peemails.! After we walk, we go to the rowing docks and I get to swim; it's my most favorite thing to do! I don't chase a ball on shore but I am a regular Michael Phelps when you throw it in the water! I also sit, stay, down, wait and am housebroken. I don't chew up things or destroy your property. After you show me which door you want me to use, I will go and scratch or whine to let you know I need to go out.At night, I have been sleeping in the den on the sofa with the other dogs. Since I can't tell time, I sometimes wake up and bark before my foster mom's alarm goes off, but she's a great sport and gets up with me. She has never put me in a crate so she doesn't know if I ever had one. I'm such a good boy that she trusts me without one.
I love being near you, lying beside you, and riding in the car. I think the perfect place for me would be where my people would want to take me on all their adventures! The company of another dog (especially a Boykin) who can be my pal and calm companion would be the best! A pool or lake would be super for me since swimming is my favorite thing and a great way for me to get exercise! It is safest for me to have a fenced in yard in case I see a squirrel or deer.
A bonus would be having some fun grandchildren that visit often! I need people who are willing to stay on top of a few health issues. I have hypothyroidism which is not a big deal. I take a tiny pill every morning and every night with my meals. I have slightly elevated kidney enzymes but am on a special diet of K/D dry food. Like most Boykins, my ears need to be kept clean and dry especially after swimming. My foster has an ear flush she uses to keep them clean. I take a heart-worm pill every month along with my flea and tick meds.
I hope you are excited about meeting me. I will bring you much love and pleasure and hope you will do the same. Love, Monty.
