And now some thoughts from our adolescent adoptable, Boris:
Yo, peeps! So, I was straight-up lost one day, and I ended up at this dope shelter, yo. Now, I’m on the hunt for some fresh new digs, ya dig? The name’s Boris and I’m one hecka handsome doggo with the fluffiest hair you could ever dream of.

They be sayin’ I’m a Chow mix, but who knows, maybe there’s some German Shepherd swag in my bloodline or maybe they all be trippin’. I’m just a year old and boy, oh boy, I got that typical adolescent attitude where I think I’m the bomb diggity and know everything better than you. But let’s keep it real, I still got a lot to learn, ya feel me?

I’m on the hunt for someone who can be the GOAT when it comes to leading the squad. A boss who’s strong and loving, someone who can help me level up to my very best self. But yo, if you ain’t a strong leader, I might have to step up and take charge, ya feel me? I can’t help it if you ain’t holdin’ it down, so don’t be a weak sauce, son.

By the way, I ain’t gonna front, I got mad hotness goin’ on, so you gotta be cool with rockin’ with someone who makes you look busted in comparison. No need to fret, though, I’ll still love you, no matter what, ya dig? I’m in need of an adult-only crib, ya feel me? I vibe pretty well with other doggos, but I don’t have a clue about the feline homies.

Hit up the shelter at 207-743-8679 to chat about me, or peep the app at and I’ll check it out, ya dig? Thx 4 listenin’ fam. U rock! Love, Boris.
