Meet Bocephus

"Bocephus (Bo, Bobo) is a one-and-a-half-year-old Pointer mix who is 50 pounds soaking wet. Various sources have described him as ""a heart with legs,"" ""a cat in dog pajamas,"" and ""if athleisure were a dog."" This goofy snuggle buddy will bring so much love, joy, and laughter to his new family, so apply today!

Bo is potty-trained, but he did have a few accidents in the first days as he was getting comfortable with his surroundings. Now that he's settled in, he reserves his pee for all the fire hydrants in the neighborhood.

Bo can take a second or two to warm up to both humans and dogs, but his shyness doesn't last long and he loves to meet and play with dogs.

His most endearing tricks include making a nest of sheets and blankets to nap on, somersaulting into your lap for belly rubs (aka Bo Flops), and jumping sideways into you for hugs. He can also sit, but he's got some work to do on stay and other standard tricks. He has also been known to steal shoes, bras, pool noodles, ear muffs, cocktail muddlers, and other things we didn't even know we owned, but he's always gentle with these items and nothing was ever damaged.

Bo loves being outside and will even spend a good chunk of his indoor time just staring out the window and observing the street below. He's a decent walker, but he could use some work on heeling and generally responding to being called. He's a bit of a space cadet sometimes. We think an active family would be great for him, as long as they also appreciate a good nap, and his sweet nature would make him a good fit for kids of all ages. He has specifically requested that his new family have a yard so that he can chase squirrels to his heart's content."

To adopt this pet, please visit

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, fully up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals.

For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application here: - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home. An application does not obligate you to adopt. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the dog you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call as soon as possible.

We are a foster based rescue and do not have a shelter location where dogs can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page at for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a dog in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal.

Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!
