Big Boi is a handsome 2-year-old border collie mix. His goal in life is to have his own person to please, but he’s also never met a stranger. His gentle, laid back and confident demeanor is endearing. He doesn’t seem to notice that the lower half of his front leg is missing and he runs with the best of them. He’s neutered and has all his vaccinations and a microchip. His adoption fee has been waived, so come see what a great companion he can be. He’s at Dallas Animal Services,
1818 Westmoreland Road.  Ask for Big Boi, ID# A882942.
