Meet Bogart aka “Big Squishy”. This loveable lug is a happy yet hefty 123 pound Bullmastiff who’s a total goofball and doesn’t take anything too seriously – often living by the hakuna matata mentality.

Bogart has two loves in this world: bananas and his “friend” Isis the cat, who is 6 pounds of pure intimidation (it’s more of a one-sided relationship at the moment, but Bogart is hoping to change that very soon.)

This year, Bogart took part in the 12th Annual Richmond SPCA Dog Jog & 5K Run to benefit homeless pets in our area. Follow Bogart on his inspirational journey to better health – watch as he conquers treadmill running, swimming laps in the pool, backpacking through the woods, and much more.
