The Boss

06/10/13 Update:  Poor Boss, he finally found the perfect home, and we have learned that his owner is very ill, in and out of the hospital, and has no time for boss.  Boss has separation anxiety, and he misses his people.  If I could describe Boss’ perfect home, it would be with someone who would let him load up and go to work with everyday.  He really needs the company of his human.  He should be heartworm negative within the next three months.

05/10/13 Foster Update:  Boss was tested at the vet and is now light heartworm positive!  In just a few months, he will test negative.  Boss still shows signs of separation anxiety.  He would be best in a home where he can go to work with his owner.  He loves to load up, and be with you all of the time.  Boss is a great dog whose loyalty is unsurpassed. 04/01/13  Foster Update:  Boss is doing well with his heartworm treatment, and should test negative in less than six months.  He also has learned to enjoy playing with other dogs, even male dogs.  He really has turned out to be quite a companion.

The Boss

Boss is just over a year old, Catahoula/Boxer. He is a true gentleman, kind hearted and aims to please. Boss enjoys the company of calm children and has excellent potential to become a Working Therapy dog (Canine Good Citizen) or he would be happy as a companion animal for an older couple or elderly person, he loves nothing more than a good rub down and a quiet night watching TV and cuddling with his person.  Boss has an active puppy side but he also knows how to sit down and enjoy a quiet night J Boss would love to have a fenced yard that he can run and play in. (preferably 6’, as I do believe he may be part spring J)  Boss is continuing his work on crate training, and is doing well.  Boss would love someone who is home most of the time.  Boss has began treatment for heartworms, and is doing well, this doesn’t slow him down in the least.  If you think Boss could be the new member of your family, he is being fostered in Davenport, FL. You can see all of his photos on Facebook.

    Looking for another dog to add to my family. Would like a dog with more affection than Sasha my 10yr old Jack Russell. I’m semi-retired, I work 1/2 days and have Fridays off and my wife also works part-time so there is always someone around.

    Gary, I am not sure if anyone has responded to your interest, I know it has been some time since you submitted an interest in Boss. I want to personally apologize if your comment was over looked, I am really hoping that someone has already been in touch with you. If you are still interested. Please email for further information.
    Thank You,
