Bo is ready for his forever home!
Hi Everyone, my name is Bo, I'm 7 years old and I'm called a gentle Giant. I am searching for my forever family so I hope you continue reading just in case that's you.
I'm sure you notice my unusual GSP coloring. You see I was bred for my stunning solid black which is rare in the GSP world which makes me super duper handsome. I play well with all six of my foster dog sibling (after I was introduced slowly) and I love every human that I've met. I would prefer full-size humans – they make me more comfortable (I had kids tease me before so I'm a little nervous around them). I am not certain about cats since I haven't met any close up.
I came to rescue with an old ACL injury that the rescue folks gave me lots of therapy for (and it worked). I love swimming in the pond and that helped strengthen my leg (plus cold laser therapy, acupuncture and massage) so I didn't need surgery. I'm not as interested in the pool other than sunning myself next to it. So if I could have a forever home that has a pond that would perfect (but not mandatory).
I've been told I am very low maintenance. I'm just as happy to chill on the porch as I am on my bed. So I know I sound perfect, but we all have a fault or two right? Well I hate getting my nails cut. Hate it. I also like my own space to eat and would prefer to eat in a crate or away from any other dogs. Don't get me wrong, I'm not aggressive, just nervous and don't want another dog watching me eat. Hey, we all have our quirks...
Some more great stuff about me... I'm really good on a leash and would be great for a family who is looking for a GSP who is just a bit more low key. I was a little clingy when I first arrived in rescue - COMPLETELY UNDERSTANDABLE since I was in a new place with new people and was confused. But now I'm more independent and very happy!
If you're interested in adopting me, please complete an adoption application (if you haven't already) and email my foster Mom Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S. I am an adult GSP that has been completely vetted, neutered and temperament tested so my adoption fee is $375
