Bosco is an adorable 1 year old Golden Retriever-mix male that weighs about 65 pounds.  This cute boy is young and active.  As long as he gets his regular daily exercise he is calm in the house.  He walks well on leash, does not react to other dogs and loves to say “Hi” to them.  After the initial meeting he starts bowing to invite them to play.

Bosco has been crate-trained and housebroken in his foster home.  In his future home he might have accidents at first, but he is very smart and will learn quickly.  He still acts like a puppy and gets excited to see his people, so he can get jumpy.  Bosco loves other dogs and could play with them all day long - he lives in a foster home with dogs and is always the one that initiates play.  He also does great at daycare.

This sweet boy is timid and a little cautious when meeting new people.  If approached slow and patiently, he is friendly.  If he is pushed or an introduction is rushed, he might snap at them.  In his future home, his owners will need to be careful at first if they have visitors, housekeepers, gardeners, etc. coming to the house.  It will take him about a month to settle into a new home.  During that time his owners need to set some boundaries, so he doesn’t take control.  He needs leadership and kind, gentle guidance.  He is not a trained dog, so we will require his adopter to start obedience training with Bosco right away.

Bosco is also very agile and can jump 3+ feet from standing still.  He will need a secure yard at his forever home.

What is the ideal home for Bosco?

- An adult home - no kids.
- A house with a secure yard
- Another young, playful dog about his size
