    Introducing Bo, or BoBo as my Foster Family calls me. I am one BIG Boy, but my size just means I have a lot more of me that can love you. And I really love MY people.

    I am a very sensitive boy and pretty low energy, I have had TPLO surgery in the past. I love to be with my family just laying by their feet or near the dinner table. I am a gentle boy and when I take a treat from your hand you will be so impressed at how I can be a gentle giant. I do have a pretty clear and loud bark, just so that you are aware that someone is coming to the house. When people first arrive inside I have a loud bark and can get a bit nervous but let me come to you and in a matter of minutes I am full of kisses. I do best in a calm environment and when my world is Zen, you hardly know I am around. I love walks like all dogs and get mildly excited for about 5 minutes then I have settled in and walk side by side. I really do communicate with the people I love and you will soon see how my beautiful smile and happy tail wags tell you that I just love MY people. My forever home would be best with no little kids, older kids would be fine, just need to keep my environment calm. I am not interested in being in a crate, I am a very big boy. But if you leave me on my bed or on the carpet I will stay there for hours. I am totally house trained so no worries about accidents. A calm dog in the home, maybe okay after proper introduction and as long as I was not rushed into things. My Foster Mom, has learnt how I communicate because I do express how I am feeling. Oh ya, I do not jump on people or jump up on furniture so that can be a real positive. I am a real loving, sensitive soul that would complete a quiet home.

    Beautiful Big Bo – I am a big boy with a soft heart
