BonBon was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease, which improved when he started taking steroids. He currently takes a half pill every other day (the cost for 100 pills is $26 at Walgreens) and also takes pro biotics once a day. He is also currently eating a prescription dog food that we obtain from the vet. He should be able to be weaned off of that food once he has settled in to his permanent home. Before starting the steroids, BonBon spent most of his days curled up sleeping, often not even wanting to get out of bed. Now BonBon is active and playful, always happy to receive attention, wagging his tail and talking to us. It’s obvious that he is a happy dog now that he is feeling so much better. While we hope that BonBon’s IBD will remain in control with the steroids and pro biotics, he may always have bouts of diarrhea. As a result, he would be best with someone who is home most of the day or can let him out every 4 hours during the day.
BonBon's history left him wary and a little fearful of other dogs. He is nervous when meeting new dogs but once he realizes the dogs are not aggressive, he gets along fine with them. He is a very well behaved dog and is eager to please.
BonBon is neutered, micro chipped, and up to date on all of his vaccinations. He is ready to find his own family to love. He has quite a few good years left in him and he is hoping to find someone willing to give an older guy a chance. He is definitely worth it! So if you have room in your heart and a warm spot in your house for BonBon, please come meet him.
