Meet Bogie! a veritable hurricane of hugs, happiness and all-round good times. He’ll roll his way into your heart before you can say “guh boy”. He’s a burst of energy wrapped in a ray of sunshine. Saying hi to the next door neighbour? Don’t mind if he does. Chasing squirrels like a madman? Okay, well that’s his thing and he understands why you aren’t as into as he is.
Couch cuddles? Well he has a degree in that. If you’re into quiet time and cute doggy outfits, carefully composed #dogsofinstagram selfies, well Bogie might have you wondering what you got yourself into. Don’t get us wrong, he loves to be near his people, loves cuddle time and just plain chilling with the other dogs when he’s around the house.
Somewhere along Bogie’s journey to rescue, he sustained some damage to his back leg and his pelvis. The pelvic injury was treated and the vet feels the hind leg is likely an old injury. There has been some loss of muscle tone but the vet feels that he has many active years ahead of him. Bogie comes with a month of paid rehabilitation at a doggy rehab centre courtesy of his very own NDR Guardian Angel!

Foster Insights/ Back Story: He is a very sweet puppy and loves to cuddle. Loves to be in the middle of everything.
Bogie loves people, but if he’s in his crate and someone walks into the room and he doesn’t know them he’s not too happy. Once he’s out of his crate, all is well. The vet said he doesn’t like people standing directly over him in his crate especially if he doesn’t know them.
If he’s not in his crate and he’s just wandering free then he is great with people. We think it just has something to do with being in the crate.
UPDATE!! Comments from Canadian Foster: Bogie is full of energy and young, he loves to play and still has many puppy tendencies. He would benefit from a skilled adopter and needs additional training to make him the best dog he can be. He is eager to please and very friendly.
