While at the animal shelter to pick up another dog, we saw this boy and for heaven’s sake, how could we say no? Look at those eyes? Gorgeous eyes reminiscent of warm summer days and moist earth. So, we packed him up too!
At the shelter he was terrified that he tried to bite anyone who tried to touch him. It wasn’t much better in his first foster home, too many big dogs. So, in his second foster home we set up a puppy pen in a quiet area and he shared space with Guppee the Chichi puppy for a couple weeks. Lo and behold, Bandit began to settle down.
Of course, the question begging to be answered is this: Did Bandit come around finally because he was feeling safer? Or did he come around to get away from that active, jumping on him, what might have seemed out of control, puppy? We will never know for sure! Whatever the reason he is now happy in a foster home where he shares a couch with another Boston and the other day felt brave enough to take away the other Boston’s chewie shocking people and dogs alike! Yea, he has arrived!
We think Bandit would do better in a home with maybe another dog, maybe none. He loves to curl up in laps or beside you while you watch TV. He loves all the attention he can get. But, as he comes around, maybe he would enjoy another dog to play with? Bandit was a one and only with an older person so we are not surprised that he was scared of other dogs.
Bandit is also small, even for a Boston Terrier. He weighs in at a whopping nine pounds. And while he could stand a little weight he would still be small.
Bandit has done well with the other dogs and cats. The cats are all bigger than him so he doesn’t have a lot of choice.
Bandit does appear housetrained but with winter and all this snow, he may need some encouraging.
He is a sweater wearing size pooch and he does seem to like wearing them.
Bandit is available for adoption. If you are interested, please fill out an application and email it to us as an attachment.
