About Bogart


Here’s lookin’ at you, Bogart!


Just like his namesake, Bogart is one super cool pup with a big dose of puppy fun!  This approximately 1 year old, 40 lb pit mix loves everything -- from cuddling with his foster mom to long walks in the neighborhood where he eagerly wants to meet every human and dog.  With adorably expressive ears and a wiggly back end, he often receives compliments on how cute he is by others. He is remarkably gentle with his toys (even the stuffed ones!) and is very enthusiastic about Kong treats.  His foster mom also recently learned how much he enjoys playing fetch in an enclosed yard. Overall, Bogart is a super sweet pup with an awesome personality.

Bogart would thrive with a family that likes to be active -- whether it be long walks, hikes, runs or dedicated play time.  He loves meeting other dogs and could be a great match to live with other dogs, but he doesn’t always realize how big he is so his energetic play can be a bit much for certain smaller dogs.  It is unknown how he is with cats, but testing can be done if needed. Because of his size and energy, a home with small children would not be ideal for him. He knows some basic commands such as sit and leave it, but continues to need reinforcement on other training to reign in some of his puppy enthusiasm.  He has also made significant progress with potty training, with only occasional accidents.

Bogart recently had a growth removed from his head that was tested and determined to be benign.  There is no expectation of recurrence or future issues. In addition, he first came to PAWS significantly underweight and could use to gain a few more pounds (ideally should be around 45 pounds).
