Special needs

Bowser loves to play in the water and play with toys. He's very friendly and will jump up on you to say hello. This smart, exuberant boy likes to exercise his mind as well as his body. He's currently taking Canine Good Citizenship classes, where he's eagerly learning new things.

Bowser has a lot of strikes against him. He was simply abandoned by his person. He has food allergies and is prone to ear infections. And he's absolutely terrible with other dogs, especially small dogs. He needs to be an only pet.

But he can't help hoping that there's still someone out there for him. He really wants to play with you! If you'd like to play with him, too, and really make a difference in a special needs dog's life, please give Bowser a call! He has a generous sponsor who will help with adoption costs.
