**ADOPTION PENDING** This is Formosian. He is an obviously handsome, black, natural eared, docked tail and neutered, two year old purebred Bouvier des Flanders who really likes people. He is sweet and cuddly and very friendly to all the new humans he has been meeting in the past few days since coming into rescue with four other female dogs due to catastrophic owner illness. He has been trimmed and bathed due to mats and coat neglect. He received veterinary care, and was excellent to handle throughout all those confusing procedures. However, because he and his sister dogs weren't socialized much, it has come as a bit of a dismaying shock to Formosian that not only were he and his sister canines not the only dogs in the world, he wasn't even the only Boy! So when Formosian found other dogs moving close by in numbers at the vet clinic, he responded with some frightened defensive aggression toward other dogs... regardless of size/sex, he is threatened by them all. He has done well living with his sisters, so it may not be dogs in general, but he will still need to be in a single dog home, where his person can work on taking him out, and calmly and gradually exposing him to the wide world he never even knew was there. Under supervision, with a savvy owner, Formosian needs to attend obedience class when he is ready for it. A condition of adoption will be that he attend class. This will ensure that he becomes the confident companion and good citizen that we see is in him. He is a loving guy and willing to please once he can discern what we want of him. We will require a physically, adequately fenced yard because he might become frightened if he enters the big outdoors without a companion and will need to be safe. Formosian is currently in north central Georgia. To be considered as an adopter, please fill out an application on line. For questions, contact NC Coordinator Deborah Dickerson.

Hey! Hey! Hey! It's Gus the Bouvier here with an update on me and my life buddy, Sage. I gotta tell ya, life with these ABRL folks is pretty great, but Sage and I are ready for our own forever home. We've both slimmed down quite a bit, Sage still has about 10 pounds to go, but she's much more active and playful now that she can move around more easily. Her coat has come in nicely so she has her fuzzy Bouv face back too! My skin issues are completely cleared up, my coat is so handsome now, and I only require routine grooming. We both had our teeth cleaned and the doc said we are very healthy and young at heart for our ages so he anticipates we have several good years left to be your best friends. Sage loves to be hugged and sit with her head in your lap and I like to have my back scratched. We love to ride in the car too! Sage likes to sit in the backseat on the passenger side and look out the window and then look at our ABRL friend who's driving us around and just smile. Everyone who meets us thinks we're the nicest pair and our foster family says we're the most laid back Bouvs they've ever had. We're still hanging out in Louisville, Kentucky with our foster mom, Colleen. She and our foster Dad are willing to discuss transportation arrangements if you're interested, but don't live close to us. If you're willing to open your home and heart to a pair of spunky, loving Bouv buddies, please send her an email here and she'll get back with you within 72 hours.
