Meet Bo, Moffitt’s Newest Pet Celebrity

August 26, 2018


Name: Bohemond, but you can call me Bo

Age: 1 year

Breed: Harlequin Great Dane

Birthplace: I was born in North Carolina and weighed just six pounds when my Mom came and got me. I moved to Florida with her and became a certified therapy dog through Project PUP.

Weight: I am 165 pounds and still growing! My dad weighs 185 pounds and I hope to be as big as him one day.

Favorite Toy: Wow, that’s a tough one! I love both my squeaky snake and my unstuffed hippo.

Favorite Food: I usually eat kibble, which helps me grow big and strong, but my real favorite food is cheeseburgers.

Best Friend: My brother, Draco. He is a 5-year-old black Great Dane who weighs 210 pounds. We love playing tug-o-war with our toys and cuddling together on Mom’s bed.



Favorite Day of the Week: Friday because that’s when I get to see all my friends at Moffitt, both furry and human. I love meeting new people, but my favorite part of volunteering is getting chin scratches and belly rubs.

When I am not at Moffit I’m…Swimming! I love playing fetch in the water at the beach and swimming laps in my Mom’s pool.

Favorite Outfit: Volunteer services didn’t have a vest big enough for me, so they had to order it in horse size! You’ve probably seen the bibs I wear on the job to keep me clean. My favorite ones say, “The DOGtor is in” and “Therapy dogs heal.”

Fun Fact: I have two different colored eyes, one blue and one brown

Favorite Human: My mom! She always gives me doggy treats and lets me crash on her bed. She takes me almost everywhere she goes, but my favorite outing is to Moffitt so I can hang out with all of you!
