My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

**I am located in Georgia, but I can be transported north to you!**

Name: Jefferson aka Bo Bo

Breed: 51 % Golden retriever, 37% American Staffordshire terrier, 9% pit bull, 1% keeshond, and 2% Boxer (according to a similar looking littermate's DNA test)

Sex: Male

Age: 2 years (estimated DOB is 7-13-21)

Weight: 66 lbs

Vetting: Up to date on vaccines, neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative and on prevention.

House trained/Crate trained: Yes/Yes

Good with: All dogs, cats, and children -- there are several of each in my foster home, and I get along great with them all!

Energy level: High, I am still young after all!

Before FAR/My History: I was originally adopted as a puppy at 8 weeks and was returned through no fault of my own -- my family just wasn't able to take the time needed to help train me to be the best dog I can be.

Training Status/ Commands I Know: Speak on command, give paw, sit, lay down, and jump up for a toy.

Working on: Come, Off, and Stay

Things I like: I love curling up in your lap or by your feet. I also love to run and catch balls, but I need to be monitored with my toys. I need super hard toys and am able to destroy even very tough toys designed for power chewers.I love fetch, tug of war, and playing in water. I am good at bath time and will just sit in tub once you get me in there.

Things I don't like: I don't like being by myself for too long.

Things that make my humans happy: I am good while they are gone.

Ideal family/home: I would love a family who can run with me or play as well as just curl up and watch a movie. I just want to play with everyone!

Special notes: I do get excited when eating and tend to eat very fast, so I need to have a special bowl that helps me to slow down my meal.
