After 583 days in his foster home, Bojangles has found his furever home!
David and Charlene are no strangers to rescue and have welcomed Bo into their pack! Bo now has two LSBCR alumni sisters, Ava and Bailey(Krispy Kreme), he has Zeke a bulldog brother, and an Aussie sister Swirl and Aussie brother Dundee. And David and Charlene are LSBCR volunteers!
David and Charlene met Bojangles at one of the Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue events last year and Bo must have made quite the impression because they started watching and keeping up with Bo. As time went on and as they watched him get over looked over and over they were falling in love with him! Bo has quirks about him that did not make it easy to place him in just any home! So about a month ago, they reached out and the first meet and greet took place. Then about a week ago the second meet and greet took place and that was that! Bo has his furever home and family! Bo will be enrolling in some training classes very soon and maybe trying his paws at becoming a service dog! I can’t wait to hear about your progress!
Foster mom wishes you all the love, training, and butt scratches you deserve and please be kind to their furniture!
It was one of those days. A day when the rescuer cried right along with the owner. You wanted a do-over.
Bojangles had no idea when he jumped in the SUV that he was taking his last trip with his family. Bojangles was happy to go and happy to get out, but staying in a strange new place was not what he had in mind. Bojangles’ eyes darted from side-to-side and he searched for a familiar face. Trying to make him understand that his life was changing for the best was hard.
Bojangles’ mother had recently had some serious medical problems and major surgeries were in her future. And then after the surgery, she’d have to do months of rehab … and months of not being able to pick up or take Bojangles for a walk.
Bojangles is an active fellow and sitting in a lap is a must. He’s used to weekly baths and trips to the groomer. His fur is soft as silk and his eyes look right through you. He is 5 years old and as sweet as can be.
Bojangles’ mother was surrendering part of her heart today, but she did so because she knows there is a family out there who can love and care for him, just as he deserves.
1/5/21 Update: Bo is doing great in his foster home. He does what he wants when he wants to do it! Bo can be motivated at the sight of treats, so those are always handy! He does not like to be pulled or tugged, but with a slip-on leash, he will follow you anywhere.
He enjoys the quiet life in his room, so a nice quiet home would be great for him ~ one without small children and other things with fur. He loves to receive lovins and will snuggle on his terms. Bo absolutely loves bath time. I’ve found him in the tub a time or two waiting patently.
2/16/21 Update: This is as far as I go! No, no, no. I don’t care what you put on me! I’m not going outside. I’ll just hold it until Friday.
Update from Bojangles’ foster momma: Bo has been doing great with following directions and sitting. He’s getting better at not bolting out the door, but today, no matter the treats, he isn’t going outside!
Don’t mind the cardboard. Bo likes the occasional box treat! Sometimes as foster parents, you have to let them enjoy what they enjoy. And Bo likes to destroy boxes from time to time!
3/2/21 Update: When you’re sexy and you know it! That’s me because Foster Mom says so.
Foster Mom says I’m getting really good at sitting and I’m getting better at listening. Foster Mom also tells me that if I keep working hard, I will find my special person to love someday.
3/8/21 Update: Bojangles wanted to let everyone know that he’s been working really hard at being a good boy!
When he first came into his foster home, he didn’t like his foster sisters Norma and Kiwi. He wasn’t aggressive, but he would go after them. Maybe he just didn’t want to share his space. But look at him now!
He’s sitting and taking treats alongside Norma.
Another thing: Bo would constantly try to get loving from the girls. Sometimes to the point that an altercation would take place because he wouldn’t pick up on the ladies’ cues to stop. He also would not listen to Foster Mom when she said no. But all that is changing! He is listening better and when Foster Mom says, “Leave the girls alone,” he is stopping. He may turn around 5 minutes later and try again, but he is stopping when he is told no.
He is a sweet boy that isn’t needy. He likes his room and his own space. When he wants a good booty rub, he will let you know and then he just goes back to his room with his bed and blankets.
3/20/21 Update: Happy fabulous Saturday! I heard Foster Mom talk about eating some pizza at Campisi’s in Rockwall tomorrow. I’ve never had pizza, but I’m pretty sure I’m gonna like it. I’ve been working really hard on my manners, so I hope you come by and see how well I’m doing!
4/3/21 Update: You may be cool, but you’re not this level of cool. Foster boy Bojangles is ready for a chill weekend.
4/28/21 Update: If it were up to Bojangles, he would never leave his room! But from time to time he has too. Bo spent the weekend at a nice Pet Resort and he has not moved from his bed since he got home!
5/10/21 Update: When Bo first came into Mays Manor, he was not very affectionate. But boy, have things changed! He loves booty rubs, he loves having his ears rubbed, and he even gives a kiss here and there!
5/27/21 Update: Bo and Wolf continue to be the perfect gentlemen.
Bo’s perfect furever home will be calm and chill. He is doing a fabulous job learning to tolerate the wild and crazy, but would be happiest in a home by himself or with fur siblings that are as chill as him. He definitely likes his own space.
Wolf is like a ping pong ball that may hit every wall before settling into a spot. Luckily, it doesnt last long. He does have a little issue with his trachea. When he gets over excited, his trachea will cause some breathing issues. I just put him in his kennel until he calms down. He would be happiest as an only pup.
6/18/21 Update: Bojangles is trying to figure out how he is going to protect foster mom from the dishwasher.
Bo is a very funny boy. The dishwasher started and he was seriously trying to find where the noises were coming from so he could attack it! Bo does not like dishwasher noises, engine noises, power tool noises, vacuum noises, or lawn mower noises. Bo feels like these thing were put on earth to harm us, so Bo does his best to protect the ones he loves!
10/6/21 Update: Bojangles is one of those pups who enjoys his own space. If he is in the mood for a butt scratch, he lets you know. If he is in the mood for a kiss or a half hug, he lets you know. If he is not in the mood, he let’s you know. Bo doesn’t realize a hug is different than being restrained, so he is out on the big ol’ bear hugs!
He has a room all to himself and he enjoys that room and doesn’t care to share it. He does potty with other pups and has free time with the other pups, but when he is done, he will retreat to his space to have his alone time. He also loves his blankets and beds! I will say he is seeking more and more attention and gives more kisses!
1/21/22 Update: As much as I like my foster mom, I am really hoping to get my furever family.
Foster Mom says I am the best boy and as much as I want to believe her, I find myself thinking, “Am I really a good boy?”
Then, I think about how far I’ve come and what I have learned over the past year and you know what? I am a good boy!
I listen (most of the time), I’ve learned to play with other pups, I go outside to potty, I enjoy butt scratches, and I even give Foster Mom kisses.
I may not want to be hugged, but I’m getting pretty close.
I went to the vet clinic and got my nails trimmed and I didn’t even get mad. I might next time, but I didn’t this time and I let everyone love all over me.
I haven’t eaten any leather in a long time (maybe it’s because I haven’t been around any) but surely there is someone out there that wouldn’t mind covering the couch or chair with a cover?
3/3/22 Update: Bojangles says, ” Bring on the spring.”
From his foster momma: Bo is hard-headed, but has learned to listen. He wants affection on his terms. If he does not want affection, he lets you know. He has learned that belly rubs are the best! He likes his alone time and his space. He is house trained. He would be great as an only or with another non-bullying, chill pup. He is slowly learning to play. He loves treats. He does not like to be pulled or tugged, so kids are a no. Although he has never caught one, he acts like cats are a snack when they are taunting him through his window. Bo needs a human that understand his quirks and that if he is not interested, he is not interested.
