He may have two names, but German Shepherd Jacob, a.k.a. Boab, has one special place in the hearts of owner Kirstie Spence and her family.

Moving into Kirstie’s Maddiston home when he was just six-weeks-old, Boab had to overcome early adversity, going through heart and stomach surgery as a puppy. Bouncing back to full fitness, complete with special diet, Boab is now three-years-old and a born entertainer who specialises in physical comedy. Kirstie said: “He’s a bit dopey about things at certain times and he just has to wag his tail quickly for us to laugh. He’s great with children, just a caring dog who shows so much affection to everyone he meets.”

Whether its going on long walks up Muiravonside or getting cuddles at home from the kids, Boab is a one-of-a-kind who Kirstie and the clan cannot imagine life without.
