Adoptable Dog of the Week- Bogey

This boy is not just a looker- he’s a smart cookie, too! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Bogey, an adorable 6 years old Lhasa Apso and Bichon Frise Mix from Fargo, North Dakota. This handsome fella is neutered, microchipped, leash trained and housetrained. Bogey gets along with other small dogs and cats, but he’s not good with kids- only families with older, considerate children could be a potential match for this little cutie pie.

Bogey’s Tale

While he might not have had the chance to learn things and bond with humans in his previous home, Bogey has come a long way with his foster family. This incredibly intelligent pooch has wowed his current caretakers with his smarts, and with a good reason. In the time he spent in foster, this cute doggo learned to sit… when a person taps their nose! You got to admit that’s quite impressive! He is very treat motivated (his rescuers say that he’ll come running as soon as he hears the cheese wrapper opening), so there’s no saying what other cool tricks Bogey might learn with a right person by his side.

In addition to yummy treats, Bogey also loves going on walks and laying next to his owner at the end of a tiring day. He’s not too interested in cuddling, but who knows, with your love and attention, he might just turn into a full-blown cuddle bug! As for getting along with other furry companions in the home, Bogey does well with cats and dogs his size: big pooches tend to frighten this small furball. As he is a bit timid and needs his space to feel safe, a family with children might not be the best fit for him, unless they’re older and understand how to treat a pooch with respect.

Bogey could truly blossom into a wonderful pet in the right home. Do you think that you could be the person he’s been waiting for all this time? Contact Diamond In The Ruff Pet Rescue for more information on how to adopt him.
