Meet adoptable 8 week old Dalmatian mix puppy Boog who is looking for a very special home with someone who will cherish him, make daily positive reinforcement training/socialization/enrichment a priority and always keep him safe.

From his rescue advocate: Boog is a special, wonderful, gorgeous little puppy. His mother is a Dalmatian mix (1/2 Dalmatian, 1/2???) and all of his siblings look like her and look like Dalmatian mixes. Boog has lemon spots on his ears, forehead, and muzzle, but no spots at all on his body. His coat is short, but a bit fluffier than a Dalmatian. He has one bright blue eye and one pretty brown eye. These babies came to our rescue with their mom when they were just two weeks old. As the puppies great and developed, we noticed that Boog was the puppy who could sleep through anything. You can run a vacuum cleaner right by his head and he’s still snoozing. All of our home tests have confirmed that our adorable Boog is 100% bilaterally deaf (we’ve been doing Dalmatian rescue since 1990, so we’re pretty good at this). Of course that doesn’t mean he won’t be a GREAT companion in the right home.

Boog is social, playful, affectionate, and brave. His house training at just nine weeks of age is going great. He even ran out into the yard during a thunderstorm to go poop! Such a good boy. He is using a puppy pen now, but would take to a crate just fine. We have started on some basic sign language with him and he’s learning fast. We think he would do great in a home with another friendly, playful dog. We’ve found that having a dog buddy is always helpful for our deaf dogs. We will also provide training support and consultations as Boog grows. We know he’s going to be a great dog.

Boog is current on appropriate shots and has been wormed. He will place on a spay/neuter contract, no exceptions. We don’t do juvenile spay/neuter for health reasons, but are very firm in our requirements and do follow-up to ensure compliance. This is an amazing puppy who needs the right family to help him see his full potential. (we have submitted a DNA test on Boog to learn more about his family tree!)
