Mr. BoJangles is a sweet dog. He is EXTREMELY timid and shy. The lady I picked him up from says he came from a very good breeder, and I can only hope so, but there are alarming signs of abuse that I have noticed with him. I was told that he was NEVER allowed inside, and had a heated dog house in the winter. Well, I want to tell anyone interested in him right now, if you plan on keeping him outside, I WILL NOT adopt him to you! Like all small dogs, he MUST be an inside companion! When I first rescued him, he was so scared to be inside, I almost couldn't get him to come in! Not now! He loves it so much inside, it is hard to get him to go out to potty! He's trying though, but he IS NOT HOUSEBROKEN! The pictures of him show a "device" on him...it is called a "Tinkle Trousers" and I HIGHLY recommend using this with him or any other dog that is not housebroken! The Tinkle Trousers device WILL NOT go with him if you adopt him. The vet also informed me that he has cataracts, and that might explain some of his behavior issues. He seems to have bonded with me...he follows me everywhere, and whines when he can't see me. Maybe I have babied him too much, but that's how I do my doggies here! He must go to a very patient home, and even though he has had no issues with my young grandchildren, I don't recommend him being around very young children because he is so timid and can't see very well, and he is quite a little guy...under 8 pounds. I also insist that he be fed IAMS Mini Chunks. When I first rescued him, his poo was SO NASTY! They had to be feeding him the cheapest dog food available at his former home! He is on a IAMS diet now, with a few goodies here and there, and it is much better! He has become a very loved, and loving member of our pack here and it will be VERY hard to let go of this little guy!
Note: Mr. Bojangles is located in Keokuk, Iowa - and we will not fly this boy.
