Natty Boh (aka Bo) came into BSR as a four year old with an extensive rap sheet as a dog that liked to wander. Fortunately, the shelter where this traveling man landed called Boykin Spaniel Rescue. Bo was fostered in an environment where he could have room to run but still be monitored closely, and when he was ready to be adopted, that same need for oversight was essential in a new home. His adopters renamed this hardened criminal "Natty Boh," to help launch him into a new life. Boh now has an older sister, another BSR alumni, to play with and she also keeps an eye on his wanderings! After learning the hard way that the marsh is not a good place to explore unsupervised, he has adapted well to his new environment. Boh loves swimming in his pool and helping his sister keep the property squirrel free. He still has issues with thunderstorms but is learning that his new family is not going to let him get hurt by them. He loves protecting his people and home by sounding a loud but friendly greeting to everyone who comes to visit. Boh is a happy healthy dog and has a new life in his “fur”ever home.
April 2018 Update!
Hi y‘all, Natty Boh of James Island here. I celebrated my Gotcha Day on April 18, 2018. I am loving life with my forever family here on James Island in South Carolina. I have a wonderful older sister, Princess Zoe, who is also a BSR Alum but from a long time ago. I have a big yard to run in and a marsh that is full of mysteries. I learned early on that going into the marsh is not that good of an idea, it gets Mom and Dad really spun up and leads to a bath every time. I have learned to patrol the edge and keep all the critters out of my yard. I also have a really neat thing called a pool that has water. I am allowed in as long as there is an adult with me. I can chase balls and bumpers in there and not worry about them getting away. I have had some real adventures with snow storms, tropical storms and even a hurricane. They were interesting but not a lot of fun. I had to stay inside way more than I like during them. I also have gotten to go on road trips with the family to Grampy’s house in Virginia. He has some really big water in his front yard. I have not gone in but it is really fun to sit on the dock with Mom and Dad and watch the boats. All in all life is really good. I hope every LBD finds a home like mine and I thank BSR for helping me get mine. See y’all at SEWE in 2019. Natty Boh of James Island
