Hello!! 🐾🐶 My name is Bosu (aka Penny). I'm guessed to be a doberman/hound mix, but I actually have some brindle markings on my paws and chest, so I’m not sure what that part is 🤷♀️ I’m about 3 years old and currently weigh 38lbs. Since you can still see my ribs, my foster mom thinks I should gain at least 5-10 lbs. (UPDATE: We’re working on that...I’m awesome at eating all my food! 😋 I run right to my crate at meal time and wait patiently for my foster mom to bring my food! Since there are several dogs in the house, we all eat separately in our crates.) I have some skin sensitivities right now - probably allergy related - but my foster mom is using Benadryl and supplements, medicated shampoo, and cleaning my ears regularly to fix that right up!! 🤗 (UPDATE: My fur has grown in really well, which you can see in the progression of my profile pictures, and I’m less itchy these days...maybe we’ve found the right combination for my skin sensitivities/allergies!)
I’m good at going into my crate when it’s time, and I’m house-trained already (so no accidents in the house since I arrived) 😁 I like to play with my foster siblings (the ones that are smaller than me) - running around inside or outside - but sometimes I need my space because I can get protective of areas/things that I perceive as mine...my foster mom calls that resource guarding.
From an energy level standpoint, I’m a solid medium. I use my paws to play, sort of like a boxer, which makes my foster mom laugh 😂 I can chill with the best of them though, sleeping on the couch and cuddling with my foster mom 💞 I do good on car rides, I just need some help getting in and out (if the vehicle sits higher off the ground) 🚘
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
