All About Bodhi
Hey there! My name is Bodhi, and I am the perfect mix of playful, snuggly, and (if I might say so myself) dapper! There are a few things that I'm looking for in my future forever home, including a fenced yard to run around and sunbathe in, preferably have a doggie sibling to play with, an active owner, and either adults only or teens-plus, and no cats. . Breed: Basenji-Terrier Mix . Gender: Male, neutered . Age: approximately 8 years old . Size: 50 pounds . Good with: o Dogs? Yes, even puppies! o Cats? No o Kids? 16+ years Bodhi came to us after his previous family moved out of the area and could not take him with them, as well as growing concern over his fear nipping due to his protective nature (more on that below). He has been with us for eight months. Bodhi is the one of the cuddliest, most playful and loyal dogs you'll ever meet! His perfect day would consist of going on a long walk or run in the morning, lying in the sun, playing with his doggie sibling, going on more walks in the afternoon, and snuggling on the couch with you in the evening. He's an expert nose-kisser and LOVES to play tug-of-war either with you or with another dog, is always willing to show off his abilities to sit, lie down and shake for a treat or two, and will be there to greet you at the door with the cutest over-the-shoulder-butt-wiggle-huge-grin (seriously) you'll ever see. â With Bodhi's incredibly loyal nature comes a lot of protectiveness of his family, which makes him an excellent guard dog, but also at times manifests itself into fear nipping of strangers. Because of this, he needs a home with either just adults or a family with mature children who do not have a lot of guests, and would be willing to do introductory training between Bodhi and any guests when they do come over. He's excellent in his crate and often puts himself to bed, is completely house trained, and is good on the leash with slight leash reactivity to other dogs passing by. Bodhi loves his time at doggie day care as well, since it lets him play with all of his best buds and get some energy out. Bodhi is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, has been dewormed, and is current on his monthly heartworm and flea/tick preventatives. If you have additional questions about him, please email the Dog Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you think he may be the one, please go ahead and submit and app on our website! Thanks!
