Meet Boris. He's a 4 year old black, male Standard Poodle, weighing in at 70 pounds. Whoa! A big boy! And you can really tell he's big when you get a happy, enthusiastic, over the top bouncy greeting from him! So, maybe training hasn't been a big part of his past, but gosh, he'll put a smile on your face - if he doesn't knock you over! This is why Boris started in dog kindergarten when he came into our care. Good thing he's a quick study! With plenty of exercise and mental stimulation he is learning to be calmer in the house and not use his mouth so much when he wants you to play. Boris does love other dogs but they don't always love him. He's a good match for a dog who knows how to play and knows when to stop. Boris doesn't seem to have a stop button so he needs the other dog to tell him! This means he won't be a match for a lot of dogs, but with the right match, he'll play for hours! Boris has had one seizure since coming into SPIN's care in mid September, and we now believe he may have had two with his original family. For now, no treatment is recommended other than watching out for him. Boris will need a home with a large, fenced yard and owners who are fit and not too young or frail. No apartments or townhomes for him please. If you're interested in learning more about Boris please email us to start the conversation.
