B-go in Richmond, VA
Meet B-go! This adorable 4-year-old tricolored neutered boy has had a bit of a rough go of it, but was given to Cavalier Rescue USA to live his bestest life. B-go’s favorite things in his new life include all sorts of amazing experiences like 1) spooning under the covers (he prefers little spoon) 2) snuggling on the couch 3) walks in the neighborhood where you get to sniff EVERYTHING gross on the sidewalk 4) belly rubs 5) cheese and bacon.
B-go is fully house trained and a loving Velcro boy. He adores his foster dad and thinks he’s the coolest dude ever. We are pretty sure he’s never had someone to love before but as a Cavalier, he’s an obvious natural.
He has some things to work on, but he is picking up life as a normal dog quickly. His new home will need to find a good positive reinforcement trainer to work on his confidence and skills. He is leery of new people but warms up quickly. He showed mild resource guarding with toys and treats when he first went into foster care, but he immediately understood “trading” for a higher value treat has benefits for him and now will bring over his toys to get a treat. He bites the leash and wants to play tug of war with it, which has been a work in progress to refocus him on his other skills and be rewarded for those (his sit, down, and touch are becoming solid in foster, he comes reliably when called inside). He only does the leash biting while preparing for walks, not on the walks.
On walks, his foster sisters are teaching him to ignore other dogs, but this would benefit from some work with a trainer as well because he is shocked that not only is he outside, but other dogs (And cats! And cars! And people!) are too! He is an unrepentant cat chaser and needs to be in a home with no cats or with a sassy cat with the confidence to stare him down (a task the foster’s cats have royally failed at).
This is a lovely boy. He’s active, loving, smart, and trainable. He would love a running partner, he will be an amazing adventure buddy, and he will kick butt in any dog sports he is put into. He deserves to finally have his happy ending in life after his rough start. Due to his mild resource guarding, a home with children 12 and older who will understand how to manage this is recommended. Do you have a place in your home for this cheese-loving power snuggler?
