NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Beautiful Bobo is a happy boy, who is seeking his new pack. Bobo has attached quickly to his foster carer and shows all the signs of a loving lap dog. He is house trained and currently being crate trained, which he has taken to like a boss. After a brief settling period in his temporary digs, Bobo is sleeping well through the night in his crate. He is polite around the house and, while he would much prefer to be cuddled up with you on the couch, is responsive to house rules and will sit on his mat and adore you from afar if he must. Bobo has some basic training, knowing how to sit, stay and go to his mat. He is comfortable being picked up and travels well in the car.

Bobo has been showing some anxiety in foster care, which is understandable given his life changes. As he learns the routines in his new home, we are confident he will settle well, provided he has the human interaction and exercise he needs. He is a bright and curious boy, who loves getting physical with his toys and is enthusiastic about going for walks. Bobo will benefit from some further loose lead training and access to games and toys such as puzzle feeders to help him build his confidence. Given his eagerness to please, further training should be pretty simple.

Bobo is likely to do well in a variety of households where he has human company, love and a couple of walks a day. Bobo is new into our care and we will update his profile as we get to know him better.

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. All necessary vet work such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment is also carried out. We are no longer heartworm testing as we have not had one positive test since we began in 2006. If a dog comes to us on heartworm treatment this is continued.
