Rescue Story

Bosa came into GEARS’ care as a stray (with his 2 siblings) and, after time spent in a loving foster home, is now ready to find his furever home!

My Bio

Hi I’m Bosa – Bo for short! They say I was the runt of my litter, but I sure know how to tell ‘em like it is! Great things come in small packages! 

I’m missing a part of my tail as it got bitten off when I was just a wee one, but it just gives me character😊. My ears are trying to “pop” up. Some days it’s just one ear standing tall; other days I like to give them a break and let my ears down. The world can be so noisy! My vet thinks as I get bigger I’ll have perky ears. I guess we will see if they are right!

I currently live with my human foster sister and 2 resident cats. I like to talk to the felines and also let my foster family know when they are up to no good! I love kiddos, but remember, I’m just a pup and explore things with my mouth. I never bite, but I do like to mouth and lick hands and noses! 

I enjoy being outside with my humans. I am learning that loud city sounds aren’t so scary, and I’ll protect you from between the safety of your legs, hee hee! Don’t worry, I got your back! Unless it’s dark outside because I’m scared of the dark! 

I’m still a pup and love to explore things with my mouth! Even things I really shouldn’t be sampling such as rocks, sticks, anything wood and anything soft and fluffy! A quick switcheroo with something I can have seems to satisfy me. My foster mom sure knows the importance of force-free training (she’s really good at it 🧡).

I love me a good snack!!! My most favourite snacks are raw carrots, cooked asparagus, blueberries, bananas, apples, cheese, hard boiled eggs and, of course, plain chicken!! 

I worked so hard at my potty training, and now use the outside amenities. My humans are SO proud!!! Listen for me though, because I wait for no one🙃.

I’m a free roaming dude when it comes to boundaries in the house. I don’t particularly like my crate and get anxious while inside. I’ll need a patient human willing to work with me to get over my crate fear. I much prefer the luxury of a comfy couch or, even better, snuggled up close to you on the bed. I sleep through most of the night, with one potty break around 4 am. Then it’s back to bed for this sleepy head. 

I’ve made a ton of friends at the off leash puppy park! I love my pack! I’ve played with every size of pup from Chihuahua to Great Dane, and I love them all! I’m still learning pack etiquette and get really excited when making friends! What’s personal space??? I love to talk when I play, I’m a vocal guy! 

I’m working hard at my manners and tricks! I know how to sit like a gentleman and wait (for a minute), lay down (treat prompted), paw five, and sneak (army crawl-treat prompted). 

I still get so excited when my humans come home and jump up to show them how much I’ve missed them. I’m trying my best to learn “off”. Can you continue to help me with this please?

My favourite past-times are digging dirt, tasting rocks, sun bathing indoors, walks, meeting new humans and their furry friends, sleeping on the couch and cuddling in your lap. 

Tired of no one listening to you at home? Adopt me… I’m all ears and I can’t wait to meet you! I have so much love and cuddles to give! 

Love, Bosa♥️🐾
