Boji

#808 Boji, Male, Puppy

Boji is a sweet, gentle, and affectionate 5-month-old male border collie mix. He is shy at first but is won over quickly. He loves to be petted and will snuggle with you on the couch.

Boji loves playing with toys and chewing on antlers. His favorite toys are balls and tug-toys. He is currently learning to chase a ball that is rolled across the floor. He enjoys tussling with his foster dog brother and watching the cat. Boji also has a calm side and is happy to just lay by you if you are busy.  

Boji is still learning to walk on a leash. He had not been exposed to a lot of life outside and is afraid of some of the new experiences he encounters on our walks. He is getting better every walk and with a little patience and encouragement, I think he will love walks.      

When Boji gets excited or when he is frightened, he will bark. He is very good about not jumping on people and tends to be a lower energy dog. Boji is learning some commands; he knows sit and is learning down and stay. Boji is doing great on his potty training. He has never had an accident in the house and will go to the door when he needs to go potty.

Boji will sleep quietly in a kennel at night as long as he is near you (although he would love to lay next to you). We are working on leaving him alone for short periods of time during the day; he still cries some but does settle down and go to sleep.   

Boji is microchipped, on heartworm and flea preventative medicine, and will have completed his first-year vaccinations. He has not been neutered due to his age, so that will need to be done later by his new adopted family. Currently Boji weighs 33 pounds. He is currently located in Austin and will be available for adoption starting August 25th.
