WE WILL BOW WOW YOU!!!
In the words of his current mom:
“Boo Boo is an affectionate, happy dog. He loves to play, give kisses, and loves people and animals alike. He gets along with all breeds, shapes, and sizes. He loves kitties and dogs and is very gentle.
Boo Boo is completely housebroken and was by three months old. He is very smart and learns new things as only a puppy can do.
He is going to be 11 months old on November 19th, a mixture of German Shepard and something big. His ears will never stand up like a true German Shepard, but we think this makes him cuter and reflects his uniqueness. He has many great traits and a few undesirable, but nobody's perfect after all. Do not leave paper towels or toilet paper within reach when you leave, if you do not crate him, as he likes to tear it into little pieces to show you his displeasure at your being gone.
He needs gentle reminders as to what is appropriate to chew, gentle being the operative word; he is very smart. He does a silly little 'Booty Dance' when about to be fed and barks, after all this is a happy time.
He likes to fetch balls, ropes, and assorted plastic toys, and will do this almost all day. When giving treats, tap his nose and tell him 'gentle' it reminds him not to snap. He responds to the words, 'sit', 'sit on YOUR butt', 'enough', 'momma', 'daddy', 'shake', 'other paw', and will hide if you say, 'What did you do?!'.(I'm laughing as I write that last part. Whew!) He is great with kids of all ages, but I do recommend 5 years old and up as he is a very big dog and may knock over someone littler without much thought about it.
With a little work with commands (he is VERY responsive with treats) and big armfuls of love he will be an excellent addition to any family.
Before I'm through, I have to add before I forget, he is VERY motion sensitive. This baby boy does NOT like to go for rides. He IS a puker, unless certain steps are taken. The night before travel he may eat, but not after 8pm. Food should not be given the morning of travel, water sparingly (think kid with the flu) and one half hour before travel let him go potty, and give him one Benedryl at the back of his throat, followed by one treat (MilkBone marrow treats are best, the little ones, good for training too) and a 'Good Boy!'. He is then fine for up to three hours. I've never tried a longer trip, so if you do it's at your own risk.
He needs lots of love and gives it back with great abandon, he was put up for adoption, not because he was unloved, but loved SO much, because his mommy and daddy had to sell the house and go back on the road driving an 18 wheeler semi. He is still loved and missed on a daily basis and needs a family that will love him as much as we still do.”
As with all our foster pets, Boo Boo has been altered, microchipped and is current on his shots. Please call Bob at (623)680-1170 after 4:30 on the weekdays for more information.
***ABOUT US AND OUR MISSION***
I started this non-profit animal rescue (501(c)(3)) in March of 2004 after working with several rescue/adoption groups over the last few years and being told that I could not pick up dogs off the street or that there were certain dogs that I could not rescue from the Animal Care and Control Center (The Pound) because of their breed.
If an animal is on the street, it needs help now!
Furthermore, I believe that all animals deserve a life and a good home regardless of breed.
I've been told I'm everything from angry to undiplomatic. Angry? You're damn right I'm angry!! On an average, there is approximately two thousand animals euthanized (murdered) EVERY WEEK in Maricopa County alone. If this were 1942, the world would react. Yet, we can't even get the state to address this. This atrocity is nothing less than genocide. Undiplomatic? Diplomacy does not seem to be working.
Oddly enough that's why I chose Robin Hood as the name for my animal rescue group. And that's why my motto is, 'We don't have a friar, but we give a tuck about everyone.'
We here at Robin Hood Animal Rescue believe that dogs and cats are to be loved as you would a child. They are so much like children. And the unconditional love they have for us is beyond comparison. They are so much more than a watch dog, mouse catcher or a family pet to keep outside.
If you believe the same as we do, please check out our wonderful fosters. Perhaps, that special one to fill your heart is with us waiting for you.
As of August 18, 2008, you can help our fosters by sponsoring through the Petfinder.com Foundation. At the bottom of each one's story is a 'sponsor me' button. You may use that to sponsor a particular dog or cat or to sponsor all of them.
We rescue first and foremost without regard to temperament, breed or size. There have been those rescued who have needed immediate medical attention.
The time has come for us to put aside our pride and ask for financial assistance so that we can continue to rescue and take care of those who others would toss aside.
We believe that there is someone special out where for each and every dog and cat. Its just a matter of finding that special someone. And sometimes that takes a while. And sometimes medical expenses surfaced for various reasons.
For example, there is Lance, a handsome golden retriever mix whose nose had been almost completely torn off. We still trapped him and saw to having his nose taken care of. Lance, nose and all is in his forever home.
And now there is Sassie, a beautiful grey colored pit girl whose eye was bloody when she was rescued out of an alley. We took her to the vet's and found out that her eye had been lacerated, and had to be removed. To us, Sassie is still a beautiful girl. We believe that someone else will also see that beauty in her.
The monies received through the 'sponsor me' program will be used to help these wonderful souls, many who have been discarded as worthless. But we know better. They are of great worth. They truly are blessings for us.
We all here at Robin Hood Animal Rescue thank you for also caring about these wonderful pets who deserve a loving family.
