Bogart, the Bow Tie Barbarian, came to Old Dog Haven after his owner passed away. A relative tried to take him but they had some health issues of their own and realized they could not care for him with all the health issues he has currently going on. 

Bogart’s arrived with a double ear infection and a UTI. He is deaf and he has facial paralysis on the right side of his face, most likely due to a past middle ear infection that might have gone unnoticed.  We are also trying to manage his Cushing’s disease and his enlarged heart. Like almost all senior Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Bogart has Mitral Valve Disease. He will see the cardiologist soon to make sure he is on the correct medication to keep his heart functioning.

Due to his Cushing’s disease and his love of snacks, Bogart came to us rather overweight for his breed as well as missing quite a bit of fur. Even though he is a larger cavalier, he still needs to slim down. Since we specialize in Cavaliers and English Toy Spaniels with special needs, we are hopeful with ODH’s support, we can get his health issues under control.

Bogart is just a giant love sponge! He loves to give kisses and is always down for a belly rub. 

One of his favorite people is his devoted foster dad. Bogart happily greets him every time he comes home from work and insists on snuggling with my husband each night in bed. Bogart is super smart and had our household routine down in only three days. He loves his siblings and often cuddles with them as well.

Bogart thinks he is much smaller than he actually is and is often surprised when he gets stuck trying to squeeze through something or if he can’t fit on a bed or couch. 

Bogart’s favorite thing in life is food. Any and all food! The Cushing’s makes him extra hungry and he spends a lot of his day trying to convince you that he should have a snack. Bogart is a younger senior and he enjoys going on walks and playing with some of our resident dogs. He is amazingly fast and agile for his size. He loves his snuggles and sniffing around the house for any snack that may have been missed.
