Bongo had a family who did care for him at first, but when he grew things changed. He was part of the family until the owners moved to a large house and wanted a guard dog, so Bongo was put on a chain, a short chain and that was his life until we were asked by a friend in Crete if we could help him.
Luckily the owners realised this was not fair but they did not want him in the house, so we neutered and prepared for travel and moved him to a foster kennels, without a chain.
Bongo was a gentleman from the first day, he would only toilet outside his kennel, he was obedient and loved to play with toys and balls.
He is good with other dogs, great with people. But he is a large boy who needs his walks, play time and routine.
Please only apply if you are 100% committed to the a large boy, can do the walks, make sure he meets other dogs and have the time and commitment.

Our foster home has provided the feedback below:
Dogs name: Bongo
Where does Bongo sleep at night?
He sleeps downstairs and so far really well. He settled himself for the night around 11pm and stayed there until
I woke him in the morning!
How is Bongo with current dogs/animals?
Bongo is the only dog in our household at the moment but he has been good and well behaved with dogs we have met whilst out walking.
Is Bongo clean indoors?
Yes, no ‘accidents’ indoors at all.
Can Bongo be left alone?
I left Bongo to pop to the shop. Though Bongo didn’t realise, my husband was working in the basement but that means I know that Bongo barked a couple of times when I left, and then settled down well.
Is Bongo good out on walks?
Bongo has been very good whilst out on walks. He has not been phased by traffic noise, people or other dogs.
How does Bongo walk on the lead?
Bongo pulls at the start of a walk - he is clearly not used to being walked on a lead, but he settles after a little while.
Has Bongo met with other dogs?
Only dogs we have come across on walks. He was not particularly interested in them.
How is Bongo with humans?
He is a gentle giant. He is clearly happiest being around people but doesn’t pester for attention.
Have you noticed that Bongo is afraid of any particular things?
Nothing really that I can say he is afraid of.
Any other useful information Bongo loves to play - especially with a ball. He likes to play chase (he has the ball and I have to try to get it from him).
What kind of home do you think would be suitable?
Bongo needs someone who is looking for a big dog!! He is gentle and likes attention but doesn’t demand it. He is currently thin and perhaps needs to build up his muscles so currently we are taking him on short walks a couple of times a day. He will be a truly wonderful pet to have.
