Bosco is what is called a Miniature Bulldog which is a cross berween a pug and an English Bulldog. He was purchased as a puppy and raised in a home for 4 years with four children aged 7 and under... and one on the way when he was surrendered to us. Needless to say, Bosco got little attention, no training, and no socializization. He was ultimately relegated to life outdoors on a chain. So... Bosco needs a quiet home with no other animals. Bosco does not do well with other dogs and is very unhappy in his foster situation where many foster dogs come and go and make him highly anxious. Bosco is crate trained and appears housebroken if on a schedule. He loves to go for walks and enjoys chasing balls or sticks or anything! Bosco would prefer a home with someone around to give him the attention he has missed. I also think someone dedicated to obedience training would give Bosco confidence and help develop a bond as well. Bosco is 5 years old and weighs about 30#! He looks like a big over sized pug... but don't be fooled, he is nothing like a pug! Bosco is overall a fairly easy keeper but it will take him some time to become your best friend! I do believe people have failed him... and although it took some time, he trusts me and has become much more personable with that trust. I believe Bosco would do well in a calm household with older children or an adult home where he is the only dog and with an experienced dog owner! He came up to CT to be adopted but it did not work put. He is currently being fosterred in New London, CT. If you are interested in Bosco and get approved to adopt, we would encourage several meet and greets for Bosco to get to know you before making any determinations. We want success for Bosco and a forever home!
