Bobo – in foster in Kelowna

Male, about 1.5 yrs,16kgs approx

Bobo arrived from India last week. From our foster in Vancouver: He loves attention and all people, and always wants to be petted and cuddled. He can be playful inside and likes to chew on his toys, but also calms down and rests for the better part of the day. Outside, he loves walks and exploring. He’s been great with me on the leash and does not pull at all. Human interaction he is good, but there has been occasional behavior issues with other dogs. Sometimes, he will start whining then start aggressively yapping and barking if the dog comes close, or if Bobo gets close to them. Note: Bobo was not socialized a lot in India when he was rescued he had a few other dogs to play with. So a proper introduction and some training would benefit. Perfect home: A home that allows Bobo to roam around in the house freely and preferably with another dog (female or male both are fine). He LOVES humans and so will not be a problem if the house is busy with many humans coming and out. Bobo loves going on long walks and also to roam around leash free in a secured garden area or a park. He is a foodie and can overeat. Personality/Behavior: Being so much hurt he still trusts all human beings. He can be a little skittish around other dogs because he never got to interact so much with them as he lost his brother, his friends etc and 2-3 other dogs in his pack were too old. Despite all this, bobo is someone who just wants to be loved and play.

Charlie – Currently in Foster on the Sunshine Coast – Needs another dog in the home

Age: 8 months Weight: 17 kg Breed: Mixed Energy level: High

Charlie needs to have another confident dog in the home!!!

Kids: Yes Tested 7 + Cats: Not tested History: Charlie was found along her brother in an abandoned lot tied up with a phone cable in Playa del carmen. The property was really difficult to access and we didn’t know the whereabouts of the owners. We waited some days to plan the rescue and we finally made it through with the help of some Mexicans cops since their necks were a bit injured already they agreed to help. We were able to rescue them and took them in when they were still puppies. They neighbors told us that they had been there for a while and every now and then a man came to feed them and give them water. PERSONALITY: PLAYFUL – SMART – FRIENDLY – SUBMISSIVE Charlie is the kind of dog that will cheer you up when you are low. She’s always happy always smiling and always ready to play. She is extremely friendly with people and loves to give everyone so much love. She is a super quick learner, in a matter of days she was trained with the sit and stay command. She can be submissive with strangers on the street but completely friendly in her territory, Very playful around other dogs and still training on leash correction although she responds very quickly to them. It takes her a little but to trust other dogs and she can be shy and scared in the beginning but eventually she just wants to play and gets along very well with other high energy dogs. She’s very good in the car and behaves really really well in the vet and the esthetician. Home BEHAVIOR She definitely requires a good amount of exercise and in the house loves playing with toys and can be easily entertained with treats like Kong. We have been working on the potty training and she is 70 % there. We live in a very noisy neighborhood with a pedestrian walk next to the house and a lot of construction and doesn’t seem to mind or be scared about the amount of noise. She barks when there is a need or when someone is outside the house. LOVES: Treats Playing catch Being caressed Playing with water

A few additional notes: – she really needs routine especially for pees/poos, as she’s still young. We can provide a schedule that works – she will need work with dog socialization. She still exhibits fear meeting new dogs and needs a well handled introduction. But training here will solve this – she does exhibit fear initially meeting new people especially men. Barks at first. But if they ignore, she settles quickly and then can interact just fine – she is Very active in the early morning, needs to get her beans out. But after pees/feeding/walk she settles and does great with toys and naps etc – a good selection of toys will be essential. – she knows basic commands: sit, stay, wait, at (instead of ‘no’), come (also responds to clapping for recall) – for feeding she does a sit-wait-break before she can eat.

We are pronouncing it PEEly as I believe that is how it is pronounced in Mexico, AGE: 2 years

SIZE/WEIGHT: Medium size about 50 pounds but very slender/sleek.
HISTORY: She is a rescue from Cancun and has been brought to Canada by Companion Paws
TEMPERMENT: Almost always very calm and mellow but of course gets a little excited when it is time to
go to the dog park or a walk. Can be shy initially but warms up very quickly. Is a little skittish when first
meeting other dogs and people, but again, very soon comes around. Always very gentle and loving.
She has NEVER shown any aggression.
Personality: Very sweet, loving and lovable. Absolutely loves to be petted and thrives on attention. Is
devoted to her family and sleeps on a blanket beside the bed all night long. She looks out the window
when the car pulls up the driveway and is waiting at the top of the stairs with tail a wagging. What a
welcome home! Loves to play chase with the other dog in the family. Never licks. Very smart and easy to
Reaction To Other Dogs: . Initially ran from the other dog in the family but they were best friends in a
very short time. As mentioned, this is true for dogs at the dog park. Pily is a little skittish at first and if
they make sudden moves, but in a short time will run and play with them.
Reaction to Cats: Ignores our cat.
Reaction to Children: There are no children in our home but with visits to the neighbour’s kids, she is a
little skittish.
Likes and Dislikes: Likes to go to the dog park or for walks but loose leash walking needs work as she
just loves to sniff and explore when out on a walk and so pulls. Likes sleeping on the dog bed and lying
on the deck in the sun. Does not like to play fetch or most toys yet. She has occasionally chewed a few
hard plastic items like a Frisbee or even a pen. Likes to sneak up on the couch for a nap but this is now
happening rarely. Has liked to put her paws up on the counter to see if there is anything worth eating
and has actually had a piece of pizza and some cat food. But now that we are onto this, we make sure
there is nothing tempting and she is definitely learning that this is a no no. Likes to bark at dogs going
down the walk way beside our home but stops quickly and this is certainly NOT excessive. Loves treats
of course which helps her to learn very quickly. Loves to be loved.
