OLBD Tripp is one of our newest intakes and is now available for adoption! He is an approximately 1 year old, purebred, male Boykin Spaniel. Tripp is fully vetted, heartworm negative and has been neutered.
As written by his Foster Mom…Hi, My name is Tripp and I am a one year old ball of silly, happy, snuggly Boykin energy. My foster family thinks I am one of the cutest pups they know. When I wake up in the morning, my favorite thing to do is play, play, play. Then, it’s time to snuggle up next to my foster family and take some naps so I can get my energy up for my afternoon round of playtime. I love exploring the yard, tracking squirrels and playing fetch. I really love to play with my foster fur-sibling and she and I get along great. My perfect home would have another playful dog for me to have fun with. I also love to play with my human foster siblings. I am a very gentle and patient, good boy when I play with them. I would do well in a home that has older, dog savvy children (see why, below).
I like to play in the sprinkler and under a water hose but I am not too sure about the pool, I really don’t enjoy it much. My favorite toy is a ball. While I do enjoy playing fetch, I also really love to just carry it around and chew on it. If I can have a ball in my mouth at all times, I am a happy boy. My foster Mom has been working with me on indoor manners and housetraining. I am starting to pick up on this hose breaking thing, but I am going to need some patience while I continue practicing. I am also learning not to jump up on people and have even started learning some basic obedience. My favorite new trick is to sit for treats! I have not outgrown my puppy phase yet and love to chew on anything I can get my teeth on. I probably would not do well in a home where small children have lots of toys within my reach. My foster Mom has given me lots of new bones and toys and I am learning to chew them instead of other things.
I sleep all night long in my kennel without making a peep. However, I don’t really like to be in there during the day. I don’t like to be without my people and do get anxious when I can’t find them. I would do best with a family where someone is home most of the time. I will need a securely fenced yard because when my favorite people leave, I might try to squeeze out to find them. Whenever I’m allowed, I love to go for car rides and run errands with my foster Mom. I do well going with her to dog friendly places.
One other thing about me – I am missing the toes on one of my back feet due to an accident when I was a little puppy. Thankfully, I do have a pad there so I walk on that. It doesn’t slow me down one bit. I run around the yard as if everything was normal. Most people who have met me haven’t even noticed that it was missing. The vet says my pad is well developed and this should not cause any problems for me. Tripp is currently being fostered in Texas.
