Bosun came to us a hand in as, sadly, his owner had to go into a care home and couldn’t keep him. He has obviously been well cared for and much loved. He is a bit overweight at the moment but loves his walks and will happily trot along as fast as his little legs will take him for over an hour. He loves to chase a ball, but then likes to keep it and carry it for the rest of the walk! He is fabulous in the house; he loves a cuddle, adores his food, and is polite to our resident dog without being overly interested in him. He sleeps downstairs with our dog at night and on the first night there wasn’t a sound from him and no mess in the morning. The second night he barked a little bit when we went to bed, then settled down and slept all night. Since then he has been silent every night. He can be rather over excited and barky at times – when it’s dinner time, when he meets new people, when it’s time for a walk or he wants you to throw a toy, but he soon calms down. It's a terrier thing I'm told
He barked at some workmen that came to our house and then wanted to be stroked – within 5 minutes he was on his back with them tickling his tummy! He walks nicely on a lead, has good recall and is friendly towards dogs while out on a walk. When he’s excited he can be a bit nippy – though he isn’t at all aggressive and clearly doesn’t mean to hurt. With this in mind we’d suggest that he’s not rehomed with young children, and that the adults in the home have experience of dogs, preferably terrier types.
Bosun is a very sweet, loveable boy and we will update his thread regularly as we get to know him.
