HEART LIKE MINE

This fellow is called Bo.   He was 2 years old in April.

Bo was retured as he was afraid to the man of the house and would put himself in a corner and not respond to the man but when the mom would come home from work we would be friendly with

her if the man wasn't in the room.

He was friendly with each of his transport legs and once he met his foster dad he was friendly with him and the other greys in the home.  


As we learn more about Bo we will update his profile.  He is a very handsome boy.
