BARC’s Mr. Bo Jangles
Born 05/28/2002, Adopted 07/23/2006
We adopted Bo to be Gina’s (our first BARC rescue) therapy dog. Bo gave Gina the courage that she had been lacking. They were an especially bonded pair and it took Bo a while to recover from losing Gina in January of 2011.
We added Zed, a confident, obnoxious puppy to our pack in February 2011. Bo and Zed “play” together. Generally their play consists of Bo bouncing and Zed running around him in a circle. At the end of play, they lie down and paw at each other. It’s very sweet to watch.
Bo is a sweet, gentle soul. Like most puppy mill rescues, he has his idiosyncrasies. He absolutely hates cameras; bring one out and he vanishes from sight. He has a “thing” about water and will stand and bravely bark at the water bowl to tell it that HE is the boss.
Bo is tolerant of all fosters and rescues that come through our house. He’s always a good host and shows the boys where to mark in the house so that it’s not discovered right away (that way nobody can be reprimanded because the culprit is unknown).
We’d have to say, that though Bo enjoys walks, car rides, being outside in the howling winter winds, etc… his favorite thing to do is to lie on the couch. He’s our sweet boy and we cherish each day with him.
Watch for Bo in the Veteran’s Parade.
