This is our man Bossanova, or more lovingly known as Boss. His story is a bit of a tear jerker but there are both sad & happy tears. Sad because of the state he was in before he was welcomed into the Passion4Pawz family but unbelievably happy with how far he has come.

He was rescued by one of our lovely foster mums. He came to her as a red raw very sore boy. Years of neglect had him with practically no fur, raw and bleeding on his undercarriage. All it took was a visit to the vet to find he had a fungal infection. After some meds and love he has put on loads of weight and growing hair again, so we can already see he is going to be a golden boy. Bossanova is about 4 years old, and guessed to be a Shar-pei x.

His nature is the most gentle and loving we have seen in a long time. He is very toy focused and loves to play. At only 4 years old, Boss is an old soul. With time and patience (and toys) however, he will come out of his shell. Boss is a real home body and would love nothing more than a home where he can just hang out with you while you watch TV or lounge by the fire on those cold winter night. A daily walk will do for this man as long as he has you by his side. Loves to snuggle up and hold hands in the evening while I wind down and take in a bit of telly. Boss is best suited to a home with older children and he is not suitable in a home with other animals.

Now for the heart tugging bit – Bossanova also has his own pet, because he is such a loving guy. Meet his pet rock Rocky. These two are not able to be separated so if you are opening your home & heart to Boss you get to have the joy and love from Rocky too. Don’t worry though, Rocky is toilet trained and doesn’t require much exercise ;)

All of our dogs are destined to be family dogs, that will sleep inside. Owner occupied is preferred.

The $280 adoption fee helps us cover the cost of desexing, registration, microchipping, vaccinations & for flea and worm treatment while waiting for their forever homes. If you would like to contribute towards the other costs of getting Boss back to good health donations can be made directly into our vet account - Carevets Mt Wellington - 12-3197-0001907-02 using Passion4Pawz as a reference.

Please email passionforpawz@gmail.com for an application pack if you are interested in meeting Boss (& Rocky).
