Name: Bosco

Location: Dallas
ABOUT ME: I was rescued by the SPCA of Texas after being mistreated. I feel like I missed out on my puppy life, so I've got lots of energy to make up for it! I'm a fun loving, excitable doggo who is down for some fun!

HOUSING: I've shown a bit of reactivity in the shelter and that may carry over into the real world. Due to this, I will require a house with a securely fenced in yard where I can't see everyone passing by.

SPECIAL SKILLS: I do one mighty fine sit, if I do say so myself! I'm very treat motivated, so that should help my adopter teach me new tricks.

LIKES: Getting good snacks, playing chase, and playing fetch... except I haven't quite worked out the part where I bring it back. All in due time!

KIDS: I'm an active boy so I'll need a home with teens and up please!

DREAM ADOPTER: Someone who has plenty of patience and is willing to work on my obedience training in a positive way. They'll be a very active person who can devote a lot of time to playing and working with me. I tend to prefer females and can be weary of males, so any men in the home will have to go very slow and be patient with me while earning my trust.
