Is Boubouki the most spoiled dog in Docklands?

Judging by his feather-down coat, contented disposition and a regular three-walks a day, he would have to come close.

The two-year-old Maltese/Shih Tzu cross is Elena Tsapatolis’s pride and joy and the cheeky pup clearly rules her NewQuay apartment.  It’s pets happy hour between 6pm and 7pm every night at the Boyd when Boubouki boxes on with neighbouring cats Beau and Kitty.

“He’s so scared of Kitty,” Elena said.  “Kitty really smacks him around.”

Boubouki has big shoes to fill, following in the footsteps of Pepe, Elena’s previous dog who was much loved and admired in Docklands.  And so far he is fitting in well. He was apartment trained from a young age and he is clearly a crowd favourite on his numerous walks.

“Everyone want to touch him because he is so clean and soft,” Elena said.

She said dogs were perfect for apartment living as it encouraged owners to get out and about.

“People say there is no greenery around Docklands.  But if you are a dog owner, you know where it is.  Boubouki puts a smile on everyone’s face.  They think he’s cute.  But they don’t know what a terror he is.”
