Adoptable Dog of the Week – Bogey

by Britt

Are you looking to add an active and fun-loving boy to your home? If so, this is the boy for you! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Bogey, a 5-year-old German Shepherd mix currently waiting for his forever home in Las Vegas. His adoption fee includes neutering, all necessary vaccines, and microchipping. He is non-reactive to other dogs, wanting nothing more than to play with his new friends.

Bogey’s Tale

Bogey is a high-energy and playful boy that was saved from a high-kill shelter in Arizona. If you’re looking for a dog that will be your best friend, he has you covered. Since coming to the rescue, this goofy boy has been quite vocal, “talking” in a way that’s like a husky to share all his thoughts and opinions. He’ll make sure that you’re never feeling lonely. While he is more than happy to spend the day walking or playing fetch, he also loves curling up on the couch for cuddles and some downtime.

Currently, Bogey is undergoing treatment for an ear infection that he was suffering from before being rescued. He will also need ongoing care for dry eyes, including cleanings and medication twice a day, as Bogey was born without any tear ducts. But don’t let that change your mind. His treatment is inexpensive. A testament to his sweet personality, he tolerates having his ears cleaned and medicated regularly without making too much fuss.

Bogey has not been cat tested. He has encountered dogs during his travels to the rescue and showed no reactivity. His only response to having a pup beside him was a desire to play. He would reach his paw through the kennel, trying to reach and bop his new friends.
