Bo ~ 1 Year ~ Mexi-Mix
Bo (Botitas) is a beautiful young dog who had a very difficult beginning in life. Found extremely malnourished on the streets of Mexico and suffering leg tremors, it was determined he had battled and survived the Distemper virus. Although he has fully recovered, he does continue to have a slight twitch in one of his back legs but it does not cause him any pain or discomfort, and it does not hinder his mobility in any way. It has however, been noted that his vision may have been affected to some degree, and though our vet feels it is unlikely to be progressive, as he ages, his vision may decrease sooner than most.
Bo's leash manners are excellent, and he does not pull. Unfortunately, though, he doesn’t do well on long car rides, as he does get an upset tummy. His overall energy level is low to medium, and he is happiest sharing couch cuddles or being close to the humans he trusts and loves. We are looking for a home with at least one other dog as Bo does take cues from other dogs, and he enjoys having a furry friend to snuggle with.
Overall, Bo is a well-balanced, happy dog who is polite, gentle and an exceptional companion. He would do well in family with children who can respect his bubble and a secured yard he can feel safe in even with his vision loss.
