Shepherd, Australian/Mix
40 lbs (medium)
Status: Adopted for hospice care

What a good boy!

Boone is a big fluffster with a big smile and a big boopable nose. This nice guy is easy going and friendly; he loves to spend time by your side. He’ll be a great buddy for puttering around the house and short walks around your neighborhood. Boone also gets along well with other dogs. We told you he’s a good boy!

This dog is hospice due to the following medical conditions: large mass in abdomen (suspect prostate), anaemia, chronic kidney disease, mobility issues.

Here’s a note from his foster:

Meet sweet Boone! Boone is a sweet soul with the most intense stare which says “Love me! I am here!”

If you are looking for a medium size guy who is easy going, GREAT with cats, loves meeting other dogs,

is wonderful on walks and wants to be a part of the heart of your home, then here’s Boone!

This easy going guy LOVES physical contact! Whether a rub on the top of his head, rubs under his jaw or long strokes along the length of his body-Boone is all about it! Each touch lets him know he is loved and wanted.

Boone is on the thin side due to his medical needs and although he loves food, it has to be what he sees as edible

at that time and he is willing to look at a variety of offerings.

Boone is very good with his water drinking and Greenies/Minties or Newman’s Own dog Jerky Treats are always favorites!

Boone comes alive on walks, especially on walks where the world comes alive for him! The sights, smells and possible meetings with other canines has his tail wagging in no time! There is some weakness in his back legs so stairs should be kept to one or two and a helpful hand and soft coaxing is always appreciated.

To see sweet Boone at the park living his best doggy life, you wouldn’t guess about his leg weakness, and once he returns home a nice long nap will complete the afternoon!

Sweet Boone has a few medicines in pill form that he takes and these are easy once hidden in a yummy treat

which appeals to him.

I have found that using a crate for Boone, open during the day if he wants to enter, traveling in a vehicle, and overnight (to prevent accidents in the house) has been a big plus! Having a crate available seems to provide him a level of comfort and security.

So here he is- A very loving, well behaved guy who wants to love and be loved-sweet Boone!

After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, Boone is living life to the fullest in our Hospice Program, under which one of our special hospice families has provided him with a loving home and the very best possible end-of-life care. Please wish Boone well!
