I was full of trepidation when leaving Bozo at his foster home. I knew his foster mom is capable of handling him but I was concerned that he might just be too much of a pain after being kenneled for so long. Well...I was right; he was a pain, but he still has a foster home - an incredibly patient one. "Bo" has had some accidents in the house, destroyed the pan of his first crate, and later broke out of that crate to go counter surfing for licorice. He's guarded his food and toys and he pulls on walks. But he's also endeared himself to his foster mom. She has given him great attention and worked with him on all of his problems, noting how quick he is to learn and that "he wants to please."

Bo still smelled of "kennel" when I delivered him so on Dec. 31st I took him back to the kennel for a bath. He was pretty hyper (see photo of him waiting not so patiently for me in the bathing room) but did so much better than his first time. I even used a creme rinse and blow drier on him this time. He's even more snugglable now.

Bo is picking up the rules at home with the help of his buddy Tanner and they've enjoyed the newly fenced back yard. Tanner is much more relaxed than Bo and although Bo has calmed immensely he's still a handful on walks.  Today I helped "tire" him - literally. He was great - no need for a leash at all. I look forward to hearing how he does alone with his foster mom on walks.
