Project Description

Handsome and a thoroughly delightful best friend, Bo is truly a Lab lover’s Lab! Our good-natured, loving, and happy pup is two years old and a perfect trim 64 pounds. He was well loved and cared for by his family, but when their circumstances changed, they asked us to find the perfect new forever home for Bo.

There are so many good things to tell you about Bo who has been a most welcome guest in his foster home! He’s house trained and crate trained although he is fine with free roam of the home. Bo knows some basic commands, is a welcoming and happy greeter, rides nicely in the car and walks well on a Gentle Leader. Bo relishes playing with his young foster brother and the two are fast friends. We don’t know how he feels about cats, but he will chase deer.

Bo loves to play fetch, play with toys and splash around in his foster mom’s pond. He took a trip to the ocean with his former family and had a wonderful time playing in the surf. He’s calm inside and ready for fun activity outside.

More from Bo’s foster mom:

“Bo is patient and mild tempered, loving, affectionate, and easy going. He is a charmer. He loves to nudge your hand to get head scratches. When he drops the ball at your feet, he will just stare at you until you throw it again. He is so patient when his foster sibling gets the ball. I think he would really enjoy another dog buddy in his forever home. His easy-going personality is wonderful to be around. He has the most beautiful copper-colored eyes.”

Bo will be placed with a family who enjoys moderate exercise with their Lab. Bo is a purebred Lab with an inherited genetic disorder, Exercise-Induced Collapse, found in some Labrador Retrievers bred for field work.   Strenuous prolonged exercise should be avoided. Labs with this “shake of the genes” make great companions but need to pass on hard excited play and being running or long-distance hiking partners.

Easy to be around and such a sweet and playful soul, it’s easy to see how Bo could be your very best friend ever!
