about Bagheera

Named after the black panther in the Jungle Book our Bagheera has the same shiny black coat as a panther, but other than his fur he isn’t super panther like and closer to the gentle sweet bear Baloo personally wise!

Bagheera came from all the way from way down south on the transport now referred to as the Georgia 6. Up until he won his freedom ride ticket little Bagheera was the longest term resident in the shelter. He suffered from not only heartworms, but also had been shot (we don’t know the story and he’s keeping tight lipped about it as well), and has a bullet fragments lodged in his hip and a fractured femur. Fortunately, X-rays showed his wounds were much older and less severe than previously speculated, and too much scar tissue had already formed over both injuries to think about any type of surgical to repair at this point. No biggie, Bagheera has a minor hitch in his giddy-up as they say,(very minor as it’s rarely noticeable) and our vets reassures us he is in no physical pain on examination. He is taking glucosamine to assist with the injuries and slight arthritis we all get when aging.

Bagheera has a clean bill of health at this point, except for a couple of scars that give him character and is looking forward to a fun adventures future with a new family! He is as sweet as they come. A happy little dude who loves to cuddle and follow you around - there isn't much that seems to upset this handsome man. He has found a couple nylabones he loves to chew on, so far they are his favorite toy. He’s more of a couch potato than a party boy, he’s really taken to the life of cozy beds and comfy blankets!! 


Bagheera has learned to kennel up with ease and stays calm and quiet in his kennel. He is both crate trained and house trained! Bagheera loves a nice easy walk and has excellent leash manners. He’s a joy to walk and doesn’t really require much, but a stroll around the neighborhood to make him happy. Bagheera will notice squirrels and bunnies, but doesn't get too excited about them. 


Bagheera lives with 3 other dogs and enjoys their company and friendship. Come to think about it, there isn't much we have noticed this boy doesn't enjoy. Bagheera isn’t around cats on a daily basis, but he passed cat testing and would be good fit for a home with kitties 


If a loving, super sweet, mellow cuddle bug is what you’re looking for in a dog Bagheera is definitely your guy!!
