Bodie in Raleigh, NC

Bodie is a sweet, fully vetted, 7-year-old Blenheim Cavalier. Bodie came into rescue because his owners could no longer care for him. Bodie is a sweet boy who LOVES belly rubs!

Bodie came into rescue weighing 31 pounds and had an extremely difficult time getting around. His foster mom has helped him lose 7 pounds so far. His current vet wants him to weigh in at 21. He is on a grain-free, reduced-calorie diet with prescription dental chews. He also loves his fruit and veggies.

Bodie has a grade 4 medial luxating patella. His mobility has greatly improved since he began his weight-loss regimen. He also has the heart issues typical of the breed. Because of his heart issues, Bodie may not be able to undergo anesthesia to repair his patella, so it is crucial to his well-being to continue his weight loss plan and dental hygiene

Bodie needs an low-key lifestyle, with no disturbances from children or very active pets. Bodie is acclimated to a fenced in yard with a dog door. He is perfectly house trained. He is a proper gentleman and knows “sit”, and comes when he is called. He is also quite protective and alerts his foster mom if someone comes to the door. Otherwise he is a quiet, cuddly companion who is very amenable to whatever you want to do. He likes short walks and loves to greet his family when they come home. He is an ideal canine companion if you want someone polite and easy going!
