Meet Bugsy!

Bugsy is a sweet, happy 12 lb., 4-year-old black rough coat boy, and he is looking for his new forever home. He was very much loved by his first family, and it shows in his personality! He is very gentle and loves everyone, including children and other dogs.

Bugsy walks well on a leash, comes running when called and loves to snuggle with his family on the sofa and in bed (but he does snore a little!). He loves walks as well as car rides and becomes very excited when he sees his harness and leash! He is a bit of a "couch-potato", but he likes to play every day too. He will tell you when he thinks itís playtime! The sounds he makes are very soft and it almost seems like heís trying to talk! Bugsy also enjoys being told he is a good boy and will walk on his back legs for a treat.

Bugsy is working diligently on his house training skills and wears a belly band while in the house. He doesnít mind this at all and it is very easy to remove and put back on.

Bugsy is HW negative, neutered and UTD on all his shots. He had crystals in his urine, but a simple no-grain diet cleared that up within a few days. When he first came to us, he had 2 short and very mild seizures. A complete blood work up was done and no apparent cause was found. His previous family said that he never had seizures while he lived with them, which leads us to believe that they will not reoccur. It has been over 2 weeks now and he is seizure free!

Bugsy is being fostered in northern Illinois.

If you would like more information, contact Beth. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
