Meet Bowie or Bo, a cautious soul who is slowly learning that this world isn’t cruel and out to get him. Bo came up from down south with some deep seeded fears and anxiety that he is learning to work through in an appropriate manner with his foster mom. Bo’s ideal family would have, their own home, another dog, a strong female pack leader and patient men. Bo does fabulously with the cats and dogs in his foster home. Bo has a tendency to cling to the females of the house because he has a great fear of men. He warmed up to his foster dad after about a week, but is still very alert around him. He will need someone to help give him the confidence he lacks. He will alarm bark at strangers but warm up once he realizes they aren’t their to hurt him. Bo did 3 weeks of training at a facility in Madison, and knows a lot of commands. These commands will be crucial in teaching him how to be more confident in himself and his foster mom will gladly teach you everything you need to know. He sleeps in a crate or next to the bed at night just fine and is crated next to the other dogs while gone at work. He needs to have another dog crated near him or he has been known to let himself out of crates. Bo walks amazingly on leash and is also great off leash but again will bark at strangers. Bo is a 2 1/2 year old, 37lb shepherd mix that is up to date on shots and neutered. Once Bo has learned to trust you he is the most loyal and loving dog you will ever encounter. He will just take time and patience to get there. Bo is hoping to meet a family that understands that everyone is perfect in their own way.
