Bing (Botta Bing Bang) is one of the mellowest greys you’ll ever meet, and is as sweet as can be. Without a doubt, he’s definitely on the shyer side, but once he warms up to you, he’ll follow you around quietly seeking your attention. His confidence triples when he’s around other dogs, and as a result, we think Bing will do best in a home with at least one other dog who is confident. He is small dog and cat safe, and is doing splendidly with stairs and wood/tile flooring.

Approximately a month before retirement, Bing had a fracture in his back right shin, but it has been evaluated by an orthopedist who has determined the break is fully healed and will pose no long-term issues for him. For the short term, he will continue to favor his back right leg slightly, but will be running again in no time at all.

Bing is a pro at walking on a leash, and sticks like velcro to his foster sister’s side the entire walk. The pictures when he first came off the track do not do him justice; he is a gorgeous chestnut brown brindle with walnut eyes that will melt you.

Bing will grow more and more confident in time with an adopting family willing to give him the love he craves, and hopefully at least one brother/sister dog to show him how to fit in with his new family. Will that family be yours?
