Feeling down? Got the winter blues? Let Bogey, our Adoptable Dog of the Week, chase those gray thoughts away! A comic canine, Bogey is an adult male Boxer living in Boise, Idaho. He’s already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Bogey’s Tale:

Bogey came to us as an owner-surrender. He was well cared for and loved but unfortunately sometimes life gets messy and the owner found himself not able to give Bogey what he felt Bogey needed and deserved.

Bogey is 6 years old and has lived with small children most of his life. He is a big baby and he thinks he needs to be wherever you are. He’s a really good boy in the house – Bogey will settle right down when you ask him to. He is ball crazy and will entertain himself and you, swatting it around the living room… until it goes under something.

Bogey is well behaved, with the exception of some occasional counter surfing. He does prefer to be the only male dog in the home. He’s housebroken and knows basic commands, but will need a bit of work on leash.

You’ll never be bored with Bogey – he’s like your own personal comic act the way he talks to you and bounces around the house!
