Boi is a 12 year old Lurcher who has recently returned to the Oldies Club rescue after two years due to an incident with the resident cat. Boi is in an Oldies Club foster home in Radstock, Somerset, waiting for someone to offer him a permanent home.
Adaptable and fabulous: Boi settled at his foster home within a couple of days and is proving to be a sweet and affectionate character.
Can be left for a few hours: Boi is fine when left on his own for 3 or 4 hours so should be fine to live with a part-time worker.
Good with dogs outside: Boi is good with other dogs out and about but he would be best as your only dog in the home as he likes his own space.
Needs a cat-free home: Boi doesn’t like cats and must have a cat-free home.
Very good with children: Boi is good with children and could live with well-trained, properly supervised children aged 5+.
Loves walks: Boi enjoys two walks each day of about 30 minutes each walk. He is good on the lead and has good recall.
Good in the car: Yes he is!
Boi’s favourite pastimes: Walks and sleeping on the sofa.
Boi’s ideal home: He would love a home with people who can spend time with him as he likes to be with you.
Health notes: Boi is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and has been flea and worm treated. He has no current health problems other than arthritis in his hips and one front wrist, for which he will need long term medication.
Boi in a few words: Affectionate, calm, rather shy, and currently a bit clingy.
Boi’s foster carer told us: “Boi is a sweet lad who is very loving, likes a lot of fuss and is faithful. He just wants to be loved.”
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.
