Bo is a gentle Pit Bull Terrier mix, approximately 6 years old and weighs 60 pounds. Bo was a long time Corridor resident, a dog we long wanted to bring into our program but who would disappear for extended periods of time. Other emergency situations would take precedent, and Bo would take a backseat, patiently waiting for his freedom ride from the cruel streets. After much too long, he finally was rescued.
Our volunteers found Bo laying in the grass, motionless. They didn’t know if they should be happy to finally have found him or concerned about being too late. He was exhausted, anemic and underweight. He may not have survived another day. He willingly let our volunteers load him in to the car and rode calmly all the way to the clinic where he seemed resigned to being rescued.
After Bo was released from the clinic, he went to a home-based boarding facility and his caretaker fell head over heels in love with him. “Gentle giant” is the first thing that comes to mind when speaking about Bo. He is very calm and sweet natured yet outgoing as he makes friends with people easily and does well with older children.
Bo is submissive with people and has an average energy level. He recently discovered the joys of playing with toys. He really becomes alive when he plays and always carries his baby with him wherever he goes. He prefers to play with his human over playing with other dogs.
Bo is crate trained and keeps his kennel clean. He walks nicely on the leash without pulling. He knows sit, stay and will come when you call his name off leash. He loves to do tricks for treats. His favorite commands are sit and shake. Don't forget to check out the video of him. We are quite impressed with what he has learned in such short time. Bo is a quick study!
Overall, he seems quite pleased with his new life. It is long past time for him to have his very own family and enjoy the perks of being a loved companion. Will you be his forever family?
