Boo is looking for a very special home as she has a condition called Erosive Polyarthritis that caused some deformities in her legs and causes mild discomfort. She does require anti inflammatory meds 2x a week, but nothing else at this time. Despite her condition she gets around great and is as cuuuuute as can be. She loves her walks and meeting new people. She can be a bit of an alert barker when she hears an unfamiliar noise outside or someone comes to the door, but it is bad enough to where it is disruptive.
Boo prefers to be the only dog in the home, but she is “ok” if there are other dogs in the home IF they are calm little teeny tiny dogs like her and not very playful. When moving into a new environment it does take Boo about 2-3 days to open up to her people so it’s especially important that her adopter have patience with her and just give her some space and a little time to adjust. If that rule is followed she really turns around and will show so much love and cuddles. Boo is not a fan of the cold weather so she just needs to be kept comfortable and warm. She also prefers carpets and rugs due to her paw deformities. She is is not a fan of hard wood or Tile floors-Nothing some runners or area rugs cant help!
Because of Boo’s condition she sometimes can get uncomfortable when being handled and will give a quick nip, but she never lashes out aggressively and is easy to handle. That said, although she is great with kids she meets, she is unable to live with young children.
