Hi I’m Latsi but my foster parents call me Boba. I traveled a long way from Greece to be here in October 2022 and had a lot of bumps along the way. I was born in Greece 10 years ago and spent a lot of my life alone. The last year and a half I was safe but all I wanted was a family to snuggle me and love me. I didn’t feel very well where I was but my foster mama brought me to Belgium and gave me good food and now I’m once again my handsome self!
I started to get sick though and couldn’t walk anymore. My foster mama brought me to a lot of vets to find out what was wrong. I was really scared but I trusted that she was doing what she had to. It turns out I have Neospora syndrome and that’s why I couldn’t walk anymore. It’s not very common so I guess that means I’m special and even though I’ll have it for the rest of my life, my mama says that if I take my medicine then I’ll be just fine.
Now that I feel good again I like to spend my days relaxing on the couch and chewing my bones. I’ve never had them before and now I love them so much! I also get along well with my cat and dog siblings. Sometimes I want to play with my dog sister if she’s gentle with me because I’m still a little unsteady on my feet.
I’m old so sometimes I have accidents inside but I’m working on it. My foster mama says I’m a whole new dog and now that I am, it’s time for me to find a forever family of my own. I only ask for a few things:
A warm bed to sleep in at night; but no crate please because those are scary. I spent so long locked in them that I don’t like to go back.
All the bones and chew toys I could ask for! This helps keep my teeth healthy because I’m too old to get dental work done.
I guess I need my medicine too. I don’t know how long I need it for, but I need it twice a day and I also like salmon oil on my food to help keep my skin and hair shiny and healthy.
I don’t need a lot; just a bit of extra attention to make up for the years I never had it. I can do stairs too but sometimes I fall because of my short legs so I don’t mind if there are no stairs. I’m afraid in the car but once I trust someone there’s nothing I wouldn’t do with them. I would love to come claim my spot on the couch with you!
