Boss - Carrum Downs, Victoria
Boss is a 4 year old, male, retriever cross.
Boss was surrendered to lab rescue through no fault of his own and is now thriving at his second chance at life.
Boss is a loyal, loving, happy dog. You always know where he is due to the thumping of his tail constantly wagging away. He’ll follow you around the house constantly under your feet. He has a strong loyalty trait and once you have earnt his trust he will constantly look to you for love, acceptance and guidance.
Boss would love nothing more than a family/ companion of his own. Someone who will take him on adventures from the shops to dog parks or even bush walks. He wants someone to hang out with on rainy days and in return he will be the best, most loyal buddy anyone could ask for.
Since being in foster care Boss has learnt to sit, drop, shake and wait for his food! He is a very clever boy and is looking forward to learning heaps more.
Boss is a playful and boisterous boy. He gets on with other dogs and loves going for play dates. Boss is still learning his lead manners and will pull/jump if he sees another animal/person, but normally will hang by your side. Because of his strength Boss uses a halti collar. Boss has good off lead recall when he is on a secluded walk, and never strays to far from you at dog parks.
Boss expresses attention seeking behaviour. This includes nudging and jumping. Because of this Boss is not suited to be homed with young children or elderly adults. This behaviour has improved with training, and will continue to get better with ongoing reinforcement. He has also expressed anxious behaviour towards young children and so we are looking for a home with teenagers or older.
He loves a head scratch and lots of pats, it’s hard to resist the look he gives you once you stop.
Boss is a handsome boy and has shown good development during training sessions. As he is food and toy orientated he has a strong willingness to learn. He loves a game of tug-of-war with both human and dog challenges. He will follow you around the house until you settle in one room, where he would love to sit on your lap but will settle at your feet.
Boss is toilet trained, and currently uses an open crate for overnight. He will put himself to bed when he has had enough.
Boss is a beautiful family member and has so much love to give. He will win anyone over with his handsome looks and stunning colour. Boss would be suited to a family with another playful Pup. He currently loves wrestling with his fur brother and the two do everything together. He hasn’t been left alone at home since coming into care, he has always had the company of his fur brother if the humans are out.
His new family must be committed to ongoing dog school in order to get the best outcome for Boss. He has not been tested with cats or pocket pets but we do not think he would be a good match with these small animals. Boss’s new family should understand his inability to interact with young children.
Boss is located in Carrum Downs, Victoria and is available for adoption. Boss comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm and intestinal worm treated with a ton of love and a gorgeous smile for the right family for a re-homing fee of $500.
