My story

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A COURTESY LISTING. ARRF does not know this dog personally. To meet him, see the contact information below.

Meet Boston, a Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull mix who is a medium-energy fellow that weighs about 45 lbs. and is a couple of months away from his second birthday. He has an independent spirit and a gentle soul. After several months of living at the San Diego County Animal Shelter, Boston has figured out the three keys to happiness, and he wishes every day for all three of them: his very own person to bond with, a good long workout that includes running/jogging/walking with his person each day, and some delicious food and a few treats. That's it. In return, Boston will give his person affection, companionship, and good manners (he listens to his handler and tries hard to do what he is told to do).

Boston is not shy about admitting that he has a lot to learn. Since he has spent a fair portion of his life at the shelter, he hasn't had much training, so he would love a patient owner who will teach him some basic commands. Boston wants you to know that he loves treats and he takes them gently from your hand, and learning is easier and faster with treats!

While Boston can be barky and jumpy inside his kennel because he is tired of kennel life, the minute he is out of the kennel, his calm and quiet disposition shines. He can be timid when meeting new people, but once he knows you are his friend, he warms up and gives you lots of tail wags. If he thinks you're extra special, he may give you a kiss! Boston can be picky about his dog friends, so he would love to be an only dog, and if he meets other dogs, he would like to be introduced very slowly over time.

This gentleman tries his best to keep his kennel clean and to take care of personal business outside of his kennel when he can. He walks very well on a leash and rarely pulls, and he stays focused on his handler while calmly roaming the shelter play yards off-leash. Once his play time out of his kennel is up, Boston marches right back to his kennel like a champ and sits down on his cot to wait for a few treats. As the end of the day rolls around, he waits patiently for staff to give him his peanut butter Kong treat just before lights out. As he curls up on his cot for the night, he dreams of having his own person and a furever home and hopes that tomorrow will be the day his dream finally comes true.

Boston is available for adoption at the North County Animal Shelter, 2481 Palomar Airport Road, Carlsbad, CA 92011. Call (619) 767-2675 for an appointment, or you can meet him without an appointment Tues-Fri from 1-4 pm or Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 3:30 pm. Please mention his ID number which is A1894244. You can also check out Boston on the San Diego County website at sddac.com.
