My Bio

Hey everyone!  My name is Boris but my foster mom calls me Good Boy a lot so that must be my middle name.  I am a super friendly boy and people say I’m pretty calm for a teenager.  I usually give visitors polite greetings, although once in a while I forget my good manners and jump up.  I love hanging outside in the sun or napping when my mom is working at her desk. She says I’m easy to have around.

Even though I’m a calm boy I still have some puppy energy. I LOVE running and playing with other dogs and many of them seem to love playing with me too. Sometimes I come on a bit strong especially with the little guys. I guess I am a lot bigger than them!  It would be great to have another dog in my new family – I think we’d have lots of fun playing and wrestling.  As for cats, they are cool to chase and I don’t know what would happen if I caught up with one, so probably better not to have them around. I am used to kids and am gentle with the little ones.

I’m house trained. I sleep soundly throughout the night on my dog bed and don’t need to be crated overnight.  I still go in a crate when my family goes out during the day just in case I decide to explore new things that aren’t for me. I’m still learning – but I’m a dog and everything smells so interesting! 

I know sit, down, shake a paw and I’m working on stay and come. Loose leash walking is coming along too. I am very food motivated and also pretty smart!

I’m a sweet, affectionate boy who loves belly rubs and snuggles.  I’m looking so forward to finding my forever home. Maybe that’s you!

Love, Boris
