Bowser is a happy boy!
He is also affectionate and eager to please! We are thinking this handsome dude is a Mountain Cur mix about 8 months old. If you aren’t familiar with Mountain Cur’s they are a hunting breed primarily found in the south.
Bowser is currently living in a shelter and we don’t know too much about him. He is very friendly with everyone he meets including children but we don’t know if he has ever lived with kids. He is still a pup with a lot of energy and will jump in excitement to greet you and thus don’t recommend him for a household with young and/or timid kids. He is friendly with all dogs and think he would make a great addition to a household as the only dog or as a new buddy to other family dogs, but would do best with young dogs as he is so playful. We don’t yet know how Bowser is with cats.
Bowser doesn’t appear to be house trained, crate trained, or leash trained, but we think with a confident and patient adopter he will pick up these skills quickly as he seems very smart. He is a pretty quiet guy but you might hear him bark to get your attention or when playing with other dogs.
A fenced yard would be ideal so he can run and play safely, but if that's not available he will need lots of leash walks and opportunities for off-leash play in a fenced area. We recommend that you and Bowser sign up for some dog training classes together, ideally in the first 60 days or so of bringing him home. Group training classes are a great way to reinforce important skills, learn some new tricks, and get some quality socialization time with other furry friends.
Bowser is a warmhearted boy who just wants a loving forever home. Can you make his dream come true? Fill out an application today and let him know that you'd love to have him join your family!
