Hi, I’m Bones, and I’m the baby boy who’s going to bounce my way right into your heart! Foster mom says I bounce so much, I should have been named Tigger, but my theory is, why run when you can bounce, especially when you are as happy as me?! Sure, I’m a little shy when I’m in new situations or meeting new people, but once I get comfortable there’s nothing more I like to do then play, play, play, and nap, nap, nap. Oh, and I do like to steal the occasional avocado that falls from foster mom’s tree...I mean, they are almost as much fun as playing with a ball! I love my foster siblings, 2-legged and 4-, and I love being a part of everything that’s going on. I’ve yet to meet a person or pup that I didn’t love.

I’m about 12 weeks old so I’m working on all my puppy basics, but I’m doing great in the crate and rocking the potty training, too! I’ve even learned the “no kitchen” rule my foster family has, though honestly, I don’t think it’s any fun – there are some pretty good smells in that kitchen! I can’t wait to find the perfect family. Could you be my happily ever after?

Bones is currently being fostered in Tampa, FL (Hillsborough County). He requires a home with a fenced-in yard. Unaltered puppies require a $50 refundable deposit to be returned to you upon proof of spay or neuter at 6 months old or date on contract.
