15/8/13 – Boris has found a home!
Boris is a big, friendly teddy bear of a dog. This cuddly boy has been waiting for his new home for quite awhile now, after first appearing on the Oldies Club in July. Boris is an American Bulldog who is approximately 8 years old and all he wants is a home of his own in the new year. Boris is currently being cared for at the Ark.
Boris loves people and enjoys his cuddles. He is always waiting to greet staff at the Ark with a great big slobbery welcome. He is happy to chill out while he is waiting for attention and is always interested in what is going on around him. Boris likes to keep the humans at the Ark amused by assuming many ‘interesting’ poses on his mattress. He loves to play on his run, especially installed for his comfort and always gets lots of laughs with his cute antics.
All you have to do to gain a friend for life is to offer Boris his favourite treat – a Pedigree Jumbo Meaty Bone. He loves them!
Boris is a placid boy with a laid back temperament. Not much is known of his background as he was taken in as a stray at another rescue, before moving to the Ark. He is fit and well, but does have some age-related stiffness in his joints, which is being treated successfully with Noractive sachets. He has definitely loosened up with treatement.
Boris’s opinion of children is unknown, but he should have no problem with older ones. Because he is a big, strong lad, he would do better in a home without the young ones. He gets along with smaller dogs after introduction, but probably should not live with a large dog like himself. Boris cannot live with cats.
Boris is clean in his kennel and since he must have been a family pet at some point, is most like clean in the house as well. He walks wonderfully on the lead, but his recall hasn’t been tested off-lead. He will happily come when called when out in the exercise field however.
Boris is a real people dog and he would love to have a loving home and family of his own. All he asks is for someone to give him cuddles and take him for regular leisurely walks. He is a strong boy, so his new owners will need to be used to larger dogs. He would like to live with older children who could play with him, but would probably do best as an only pet. Of course, he will need his regular supply of joint supplements and a supply of his favourite treats!
Everyone at the Ark just loves this big teddy bear and will miss him when he finds his home, but they would love to see him settled and happy with a new family. He will such make a loving and loyal companion.
Boris has been waiting long enough to find a family of his own. Can you make this lovely boy happy and start off his new year right in a loving home?
