It's always nice to hear from Kate at Tri County Humane Society, letting us know about the great pets up for adoption. Every pet deserves a home and family to call their own.
Meet Boe, this week's adoptable pet on the Loon;
Say hello to Boe! This sweet boy was brought here due to a separation/divorce with his owners. Has been timid but sweet with staff since arrival. His owner described him as very curious and active. Boe is overweight, so keeping him active with plenty of walks/runs and playtime is ideal.
He has met dogs in the past but has had some issues with being territorial over his owner and food at times, so he may do best as the solo dog in the family, or a meet and greet would be required with any resident dog before going home. Does tend to nip at smaller dogs.
Has met cats and is very curious at first, but tolerates them after awhile.

Has met kids and does OK as long as boundaries are established; he tends to forget his size and can sometimes knock over small kids. Slow and proper introductions should be done when introducing new pets or people. Not very familiar with leashes quite yet as he is used to living out in the country.
Because he is used to the country, his owner mentioned he has good recall when off-leash, but a fenced-in yard or other barrier mechanisms would be recommended in his new home to ensure he stays close.
Can be quite the avid chewer and has destroyed many toys in the past, so durable toys would be recommended for him in the future such as KONGS to keep him busy. Is used to being kenneled at night and when his people left for work and has done great with that.
He tends to get overstimulated and can urinate when he gets nervous or very excited, but this is greatly reduced once he is comfortable with you. Is not the most well-mannered and would benefit from basic obedience training with his new owners to set him up for success!.
This sweet boy cannot wait to meet you!. Donations and adoption fees help cover the cost of spay/neuter surgeries, micro-chipping, vaccinating, de-worming, any medical procedures and general care DEPOSITS MAY BE PLACED ON ADOPTABLE ANIMALS by calling 320-252-0896
