Hi guys! My SEGSP name is officially “Tyler”, but my foster parents call me “Bodacious” because I’m so awesome! Sometimes they call me “Bo”, “Bo-Boy”. Honestly, I thought “Mr. Awesome” would be better, but they nixed that idea….
So a little about myself. I came into rescue from North Carolina and I was REALLY REALLY skinny. They said I was about 9 years old, and my Foster Parents thought that I looked about 15. Fast forward a few weeks, some yummy food, daily glucosamine, and I’m looking pretty darned good now. I still act like an old man, but the vet says I’m in great shape minus a little arthritis.
I’m a big guy - I should weigh about 75lbs. So far, I’m up to 65 and I’ve got a great appetite and take my pills like a champ with my food. I’m great in the house alone, but I also don’t mind going into the kennel either. When I got home, I didn’t even know how to make eye contact or what a bed pillow was. NOW, holy moly, if I look at people, I discovered they pet me!! WHAT? Free pets? That’s pretty awesome!
That crate thing? Well, let me tell you, I didn’t like the idea of being cooped up again, but now I’m great! You have to lead me in, and then I’ll not make a peep until you let me out. My parents keep me in there at night because…well , they have a 2 year old GSP and another dog that, um, well…let’s just say I’m not a fan. Whenever the little monster is outside, I get free reign of the house and haven’t ever had an accident. In some ways I’m the typical GSP - If I’m inside, I need to know where you are at all times and I LOVE it when someone “accidentally” drops something for me. I love spending time outside just roaming the yard and chilling out. My foster parents say I have a bit of a prey drive because I want to make sure the yard is cat free. I like riding in the car too! I prefer to sit on the back seat and look out the window (A stop @ Krystals is always welcome too!)
I know I sound pretty awesome, and I didn’t want anyone to know this… But… I’m not so good with commands yet. I kinda come when I want to, so you can’t let me run free without a fence. It’s been a rough road for me, so chill home with no other critters would probably be preferred. If you have another dog, I would definitely need a meet and greet first.
So… what would my perfect furever home be? First, someone to love me, and feed me. I really like chilling out in the yard and being able to sniff all sorts of things. Something with squirrels would be REALLY cool. I’m awesome on my harness and like short walks (I wouldn’t make a good running partner - I’m older ya know). If you want a buddy to chill out, watch tv, and hang out on a porch, then I’m YOUR GUY!
If you’re interested, then first complete an adoption application (if you haven’t already), then email my foster mom Amanda and let her know why you’d be the perfect home for me.
And P.S., because of my “seniority” my adoption fee is only $187.50. Such a bargain!
