AVERY #1269 Special Needs Boykin posted 4/1/21
Hello friends, I’m Avery! I’m a very spunky 9-month-old girl who is looking for my forever home. I am a what BSR calls a “special needs” dog, but I know that just really means I am super special in every way! I have a great outlook on life, am affectionate and active. But you see, some super veterinarians found out that a little hiccup in my gait on one of my front legs indicated a congenital neurological condition affecting my motor and sensory abilities. Tests proved their theory, but besides not seeing very well in my right eye and a little harder time at housetraining, I am in most ways a very typical 9-month-old pup!
Now enough about my specialness…here’s what I want to tell you about myself: I am petite and weigh in around 21 lbs. I love to explore and learn about new things. I am full of life--I am FAST too-- and enjoy carrying my tennis ball around. I am very loving but still learning all about life! I know how to “sit” most of the time but am really good at sit when a treat is involved. I love to be with my people and foster sister. I enjoy playing with other dogs and get along well with others. I LOVE the water – It’s been cold so I haven’t ventured in too far. I really enjoy splashing in the lake and running around.
I am also learning to walk on a leash although I much prefer to run around. I love a fenced in yard with plenty of room to explore. I typically stick close by. I do well in my crate – that’s where I sleep and stay when my humans leave. I am still a puppy and love to chew. I try really hard only to chew my toys and love getting new chew bones.
I am looking for a home where my people will be patient with me and love me for who I am. My neurologist says I will live a normal life but to watch for seizures and if I have even one, have your vet put me on medication immediately. I will need space to run and jump and another dog to play with would be ideal. I would also love to have some access to water (supervised and never left alone). I do not retrieve but love to run around with my tennis ball and chase my foster sister while she retrieves.

Pepper #1297 posted 4/7/21
Hello, I am Pepper (actually my name is Piper, but my fosters have another dog named Piper...what were the odds?!?) I am 4 years old and have been working on many things in foster care. I have some "stranger danger" issues that I am working through, and I am learning to accept new people and situations much better, but a calm, consistent, dog-savvy household will be the key for me when I am available. Check back soon, and I will tell you the rest of my story!!
