Why Choose me?
When I first met Boss, he was frightened and didn’t want to come out of his kennel. I had someone at Animal Control help me put a leash on him. Once we were in an interaction pen, it didn’t take long for Boss to trust me. First, I gave Boss treats, which he loved, and then I made a great discovery. Boss loves to play ball! Almost every time that I threw the ball, he brought it back and dropped it at my feet or near me. We both had fun. He forgot about his fear of being at Animal Control and let me pet and hug him. Later in the day, as I passed Boss’s run, I called him to his gate and reached in to pet him. He put his head against my hand and even gave me a kiss a few times. I wanted to see if he’d let me take him out again, and he did with no problems. We were in an interaction pen next to Cy, a good-natured pit that I adore. They were both friendly at the fence between them and would have loved to play together. I was glad to see Boss adjusting to his new environment. Boss is an owner surrender. His owner’s work schedule didn’t allow enough time for Boss. Come meet this sweet and fun boy today. As an owner surrender, he isn’t guaranteed any amount of time, and the pound is once again getting full.
