Easy going, good-natured Bootsie spent years enjoying a peaceful housedog’s existence. Bootsie was so loyal to his human companion that he stayed by his side, even days after he’d passed away! After a period of mourning, this quiet gentleman is now looking for a home where he can take it easy and live the good life.
Here are some of the reasons that we at FFL are such huge Bootsie fans:
* Bootsie is a low-energy cuddle bug. He mostly wants to be by your side, with your hand scratching at his itchy bits. This highly tactile pup is quite the massage junkie!
* As with every true gentleman, Bootsie is housebroken and not destructive, even when left home alone.
* An all around nice guy, Bootsie enjoys the company of every human and dog he meets. Whenever he’s got company, he goes from person to person, asking for head scratches.
* Bootsie’s hobbies include: leisurely patrols of the backyard, birdwatching, contemplating the meaning of life, and transcendental meditation.
* Bootsie loves kids, but his senior dog status and his love for his food makes him more suitable to live with older, more careful children. He loves other dogs but doesn’t like to share so a home with no other dogs would be best
Bootsie is now looking to start a new chapter in his life, consisting of lazy walks, long cuddles, and the occasional doggie treat. If that sounds as good to you as it does for Bootsie, we invite you to come on over, meet him, and be utterly charmed!
