Boss Hog is a handsome 1-2 year old staffie mix arriving in NYC on October 15 from a high kill shelter in Kentucky. How did he get his name you ask? Well, everyone at the shelter absolutely LOVES this boy, but especially the boss...she is obsessed with his sweet face and amazing personality. In her words "he's perfect!!!" and from what we've seen we have to agree. If you can give this boy the forever home he's been waiting for then apply now!
Foster Update: Boss has been nothing short of a dream dog! We get stopped every block on the street for his unique looks and HUGE head. He is 110% housebroken and a total gentleman in the crate. He's very strong on a leash but usually walks right ahead or right next to me with slack in the leash (unless he sees a squirrel - then forget it!). He's a big dope of a dog - friendly with all people, and curious and playful with dogs of all sizes. Since he recently lost his manly parts, he's still working on learning not to hump dogs, but he listens well and is never an instigator. He plays well with my 50 pound dog, and tires pretty quickly. He's a total cuddlebug when allowed to get on the couch, although he's very well behaved in the house in general. Doesn't bark at all inside, and hardly ever at the dog park either. This bug guy is a total catch!!
Boss Hog is up to date on his medical, fixed, and full grown at 80 pounds.
