Bo's Story...
Bo is a sweet soul looking for the perfect, patient family. This sweet boy is estimated to be around 5 or 6 years old Although he is more at ease with a quieter environment he can adapt to an environment with a medium amount of activity. He is good with kids ages 4 and up and looks for scratches and cuddles every chance he can get. Once you look into his soulful eyes you can tell that he is full of love to give. He is pretty mellow and will need a quiet place to call his own if he becomes overwhelmed. He enjoys his squeaky toys and had learned to love belly rubs. This sweet boy will need a family that is patient so that he has a chance to shine. Once he starts to feel at home he will bloom and you will have a friend for life. He has a semi-thick 2nd coat of fur which will cause him to shed as the weather changes. Recently we have found that he is developing a love for the snow and jumps at any chance to go out and roll around in it. Patience, love, and kindness are the 3 things that this amazing boy needs to shine. Once he adapts it is smiles and tail wags from the minute you walk
through the door. He is fully housebroken and will let you know when it is time for him
to go out. Due to some missing teeth a mix of wet and dry food does work best for him. Bo is a very special boy who cannot wait to connect with his forever family. In his foster home he has learned so much about trust and now he is ready to connect with his forever family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bo, a Hainesville Shiba Inu/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shiba Inu/Labrador Retriever for sale in Hainesville, or seeking a Shiba Inu/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Hainesville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hainesville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hainesville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shiba Inu/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Shiba Inu/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hainesville paves the way for another one to be saved.
