Bo will be in foster longer while he gets treated for heartworm. Please consider donating to help pay for his heartworm treatments.
Bo is a great dog! He is happy to just be with you. Bo is an owner surrender because his family couldn't take care of him any longer. Bo was underweight and heartworm positive when he was surrendered. We are working on putting weight on him, and he is making progress.
Bo is a 3-legged dog. He had his rear leg removed when he was a puppy, and it doesn't seem to slow him down. He gets along very well without it.
He must have been a house dog; he is house-trained and does not counter surf or beg. He can use some training on sit, lie down and heal. We are currently working on wait and stay.
Most days Bo goes to work with his foster mom or to doggy day care with his canine foster sister, Maple.
More updates to come as Bo makes this journey to become a healthy dog.
