23/2/20 – Boi still needs a home
Please help Boi by sharing this page!
Boi is a 12 year old Lurcher who has come back into the Oldies Club rescue after 2 years of being homed because he had words with the resident cat. He’s now in a cat free Oldies Club foster home in Radstock, Somerset waiting for a permanent home… where no one even mentions cats!
A happy boy in foster: Boi relaxed into his new surroundings within a couple of days, finding the sofa fitted him perfectly!
Can be left for a few hours: Boi has been left for 3-4 hours and seemed fine. It’s thought he could live with a part time worker but he does love to have company.
Good with dogs: Boi is good with other dogs he meets on walks, having a game of chase if they’re up for it, but he does like having his own space at home. He’d be happiest as an only dog.
C-A-Ts: Don’t. Just… just don’t.
Good with children: Boi is excellent with children! He’s sweet and gentle and could live with dog savvy ones from age 5. Visiting grandchildren would be nice for him.
Loves his walks: Boi currently has two walks a day of about one and a half hours each, which he really enjoys. He’s well behaved off lead and on. He must be a real pleasure to take out with all the admiring glances he gets. He loves meeting friendly people and will happily kiss anyone who’ll let him!
Good in the car: He enjoys having an adventure in comfort!
Boi’s favourite pastimes: Walkies, playing chase and luxuriating on the sofa.
Boi’s ideal home: He would love to have someone to be with most of the time. A garden, regular walks, some soppy time with you and lots of lounging and snoozing time.
Health notes: Boi is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and has been flea/worm treated. He has a bit of arthritis in his hips and one front wrist, for which he will need long term medication.
Boi’s foster carer said: “Boi is a sweet lad who is very loving, likes a lot of fuss and is faithful. He just wants to be loved. He’s friendly, affectionate and calm.”
If you would like to offer Boi a permanent home, please read our Adoption Procedures for information about the adoption process. You can then contact an Oldies Club rehoming co-ordinator as follows:
Telephone: 0844 586 8656
Boi can be rehomed anywhere on the UK mainland, subject to a satisfactory home visit, but note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to meet him.
If you would love to offer a home to an oldie but your circumstances aren’t suitable, perhaps you would be kind enough to sponsor one of the special oldies we are caring for that, due to health problems, are unlikely to be offered a permanent home.
