About BOSS

Pit Bull mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Name: Boss Age: approx. 2 years Breed: Pit Bull Terrier mix, 60 pounds Sex: Male (neutered) Location: St. Louis County, Missouri Due to unforeseen financial and personal reasons, Boss's owner is seeking a new home for Boss. They tell us, 'I love this dog very much. I don't want him to suffer because of my misfortune.' Vet Info: Boss is neutered and microchipped. He's not current on vaccinations and has not been heartworm tested. He has been with his owner for about a year and a half and began going blind at about one year of age. He does have some sight, but his owner is unsure of how much. Boss cannot anticipate anyone's movements, and runs into corners, tables, chairs, and walls. He will run in circles when excited. Dog Info: Boss is an indoor dog with the run of the house. He's housebroken and leash trained. He knows cues for Sit, Off, and No. Boss is an outgoing boy who can be nervous and shy at times. He is good with adults. Boss currently lives with another medium sized dog and a cat. Boss does not like having food or toys taken away from him, especially human food he took or something he's not supposed to have. He will warn by growling and then snapping, but he has never made contact and has no bite history. His owner tells us that Boss does not stay mad or hold a grudge. The best way to take things away is by distracting him. They feel that Boss needs a gentle hand, and that Boss trusts them more and will allow them to take something from him now. Boss's owner related an instance to us about a single time when they were out on a walk and a man came out of his house. Boss became very agitated and upset. They're not sure if it was because the man was in uniform or not, but it has not happened since. Boss's owner tells us: 'I don't know Boss's history, but I don't think it is very good. It took him a long time to ask for affection from me. I feel so bad for having to rehome this dog. This dog has been through too much already, and I don't know how this will affect him. He's a good dog who had irresponsible owners and this is not his fault, yet he will be grossly affected.' His owner feels that Boss needs a special situation. They believe that Boss has been through a difficult time before they adopted him, noting the fact that, right after they adopted him, he vomited up two corn cobs, and they are unsure how long they had been in his stomach. At first, Boss used to jump when they even touched him. He seeks attention from them now and plays with their other dog a lot. They feel that Boss would do best in an adult home with a single person or a couple with no children or other animals unless they can be slowly introduced. Boss's owners tell us that they want the best for him and feel that he deserves a good life with everything he's been through. **Owner Surrender Disclaimer: These are blind and visually impaired dogs who are living in homes, but their owners can no longer keep them.
