Bo and Kathi

Bo is such a sweet, happy boy, and so much fun to train!  Bo and his big sister Libby get along great despite being SO different – Bo is bouncy, enthusiastic, alert and curious, while senior Libby is calm, thoughtful, unflappable and ‘energy efficient’.  When we brought Bo home with us last August he was a scared of men (including my husband), especially indoors.  He’s come so far in 6 months – he actually plays with my husband in our yard now, and he’ll let men pet him when we’re out walking!  And I’m having a blast training Bo, who loves to learn.  Agility foundations is lots of fun, but the very best is nosework.  Bo is so happy and excited when he’s searching for odor, and he shows real talent – he’s going to be awesome!  He’s already an awesome family member.  We were so lucky to get this adorable boy!  Thank you, CBCR!

I’ve Been Adopted

Brodie is a sweet, ~3 year old smooth coat Border Collie cross who is getting his second chance at a good life. He was rescued from a shelter who had picked him up after being hit by a car outside of his home.  Brodie has had several weeks of R&R to recover from a broken pelvis and is now starting to go on longer walks to build up his muscle. The vets have determined that he is fine without surgery, but he will have arthritis to deal with at some time in the future.  He can navigate stairs and while we’re still trying to restrict his exercise, he does like to romp around outside with the other dogs and can run around just fine.

Saint headshot

Saint was discovered in the streets of Charlotte NC, injured and emaciated.  Despite being weak and half-starved, he managed to take an active interest in his foster home.. He walked the perimeter of the yard, sniffing and pondering. He was sick and limping on a mangled paw, but he tried to get his bearings. He resisted lying down during transport from the shelter, even though every veer of the vehicle threw him off balance.   Now that he knows he’s safe and where his next meal is coming from, Saint spends much of his day lounging on a soft dog bed, close to his foster person.
