Facts about Bogey

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Bogey is a 3-4 year old, male, lab mix. He has been with me since January after I was able to get his family to surrender him to me. I became aware of Bogey in the midst of chasing Sweet Pea. Bogey lived in the neighborhood near the church where Sweet Pea was staying. He was kept in a 10x10 kennel by his family for most of his life. They would sometimes let him out, or he would get out, and he would roam the neighborhood. When Sweet Pea was in heat, he found her and was the only dog I am aware of who mated with her. I found out where his family lived and when I could get my hands on him, I took him home. Sweet Pea moved from the church to behind Bogey’s house to be near him. When I saw the condition he was living in, I began bringing food and water for him each day. Their next door neighbor shared with me that they had been caring for him for a while. She said a teenager in the home was his owner. She told me that they never spent time with him and barely fed him. She talked to the young boy many times about giving him better care, but he never did. She was helpful in getting the boy’s mother to surrender Bogey to me.

That’s his back story, now a little about him. He has settled down a lot since we’ve had him. Before he saw the kennel as a jail that he hated to go in. He would roll on his back and I would literally have to drag him back in there. Now, he will go in with just a verbal command because he knows he gets free time. He loves to run and plays well with my personal dogs. My dogs chase and bark at him and he never retaliates. He just takes it as play and has never shown any aggression even though my guys can get rough with him. I would be comfortable leaving him out in the yard all the time with my dogs, but I have an older girl who is blind. He gets so excited running and playing that he isn’t careful around her. He scares her when he bumps her running by, so I just let him out when I’m out there with them so I can watch her. He will sit for me and gives me his paw. He walks really well on the leash and rides well in the car out of the crate. He meets people very well and has met all of my dogs with no problems. He was a little too curious around the cats at the shelter, so I would say no cats. He does have a few bad manners from not much interaction and training when younger, but he seems teachable. He jumps up on me sometimes when I first let him out, but after a few minutes of running off his energy, he settles down nicely and listens to my directions. He likes to chase and retrieve a ball or rope. He loves to be petted, kissed, hugged and loved on. We don’t have any issues with feeding him with my other dogs. He has been an outside dog most of his life, so he would have to be house trained. 67 lbs, heartworm positive

About Darlington County Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Darlington County Humane Society is dedicated to helping homeless and forgotten pets find new loving homes! The shelter takes in thousands of homeless pets a year, and tries to find homes for them before their euthanasia dates. Due to the high volume of intakes, small shelter, and lack of funds the Darlington County Shelter is forced to be a kill shelter. We try our best to adopt out as many fur-babies as we can to avoid this! We continue to work on educating the community, and saving the the homeless animals of our county!
