Babaloo the Bossie Boy-Adopted!

Babaloo is relaxing here, he was groomed and boy did he need to be groomed! Now, he’s white and fluffy and trots with pride. Babaloo is becoming used to the pack and shows that he’s eager to play. He’s very good with people, and tomorrow is the big day – the day we really work on evaluating social skills temperament. Stay tuned for updates!

01/17/10 Update: What a cute little boy he is! Babaloo is interacting with the pack, he’s in the house, hanging out as if he has been here forever! He, little Ranger, Ozzie and Lady Di are doing fantastic. He is housebroken, and has the best manners! Babaloo is a lovey dovey boy, not the high-drive herding dog at all. He would do great with kids, and other dogs of all sizes.

Chris and his partner have adopted Babaloo! Yes, Babaloo has left Dah House! So well mannered, played with the pack, let me take his treasured bone away repeatedly, and shared his toys with Ranger, Nutella, and the others. He’s going to prove that he’s a good boy, with manners. I can’t wait to get a group photo, and updates.

Adoption Update:

Gisele: I had to give you the morning report!

He was such an angel last night. Bailey and Dawson made him a little nervous I think. Dawson wasn’t sure about the new man in the house, but after the first sniffs they all just followed each other around. We even did a short yard walk with all 3. No snapping from anyone, no growls…just a few “howdy” and “who are you” barks from the shih tzus.

Bedtime was EASY! He didn’t make a sound all night. Actually we never heard a bark until we left him in his kennel this morning.

For feeding, did you feed twice a day or more than that? And how much? I don’t want to overfeed, but don’t want him to be hungry either. It’s different than feeding the shih tzus.

He was excellent this morning for his wake up walk, too.

How could no one have taken this guy before?! I guess he was waiting on us!

Thank you so much!


By the way…did you ever notice the coloring on his back–those black patches–looks like DOG? I’ll try and get a picture, but one is D-shaped, then a circle, and the one that surrounds his tail, dips down his leg to look similer to a “g”.

  1. I have to admit something. I have a secret crush on Babaloo! His markings are so striking and they match his equally intense personality. He has the most amazing eyes and they are constantly searching the world and your face for clues as to what's going to happen next. This guy is going to sweep some lucky family off of their feet.
    He is super duper food motivated and I look forward to doing some basic training with him.

  2. Hey Gisele!

    We are still just loving Edison! He learned the new name pretty fast, and has adapted well to his new family! We've been fortunate to have a lot of interaction over the weekend with other dogs in our neighborhood so he's socialized with the community. He's a little nervous about other dogs, but I'm sure he's just adjusting to all the changes.

    I'm actually taking him into the vet tomorrow (they had an earlier date) and they said they did recieve his records. Thanks so much!

    And thank you for finding this guy, taking him and letting us find you! He's such a sweet heart!
