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 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!
Unfortunately I got sick and couldn’t walk. After a lot of tests, we found out I have neospora syndrome. It damaged my spinal cord and made me paralysed so I went through months of therapy and now I can walk, run and even play! I have some permanent damage to my spinal cord so my back legs are a little slow to do what I want but it doesn’t slow me down! I live with a dog and cats and I love them all but I sometimes get nervous when new dogs come into my house. I’m scared they will replace me so sometimes I yell at them.
I’m old so sometimes I have accidents inside but I’m working on it. I also can’t see or hear very well so loud noises can be scary and I respond by barking. 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 also love small tennis balls and even cat toys! I’ve never had toys before so I just like to keep them close because I’m so proud!
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. My perfect family would be someone that is home a lot because I don’t really like to be alone, but I’ll make up for it by cuddling you on the couch and making you laugh!
