Hey, this is BonBon! I’m a 73 lb, 4 year old, yellow, female and I’ve been waiting for you! I love people, kids and dogs. I also like to chase cats and birds, so probably a household with those critters isn’t a good idea. I love to snuggle and play and take walks. I also love to sunbathe and cuddle, A LOT! I’m crate trained and probably best in the crate when you are not home as I have a tendency to be curious about things that are in my reach. I’m housebroken and an easygoing companion. I do have canine diabetes, but you’d never know it. Since I’ve been with DLRR and my amazing foster mom, my diabetes is completely under control as long as I stick to a strict diet and have my insulin shots twice a day. You’d also need to check my blood sugar levels twice a day to make sure I’m within a good range. Initially my diabetes wasn’t controlled by my former owner so I had developed cataracts. The great people at DLRR and their fabulous donors pulled together money for me to have eye surgery, so I can see again! It’s amazing!
One eye has a detached retina so that can’t be fixed, but let me tell you, one eye makes all the difference! My new owner will need to be committed to taking great care of me like my foster mom has and it comes with a bit of expense. The insulin is about $25 a month and you’ll need to have test strips and such for the little beepy machine which DLRR will give to you. I’m a pro at taking my shot, so trust me it’s easy once you know how. I look forward to my shot because I know I get to eat! Let’s meet and see if we make a special love connection. Oh, and I’m famous ... I’m a Sugar Baby!
