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

China headshot

China is a stunningly beautiful, intelligent, and affectionate 10 month old border collie who missed out on the early socialization and training she needed.  She is eager to please, learns quickly, is full of amazing potential.  She received no interaction in  early puppy days, and was purchased from the  breeder by a couple with excellent intentions but a challenging environment for a young border collie.  She spent most of her time in an outdoor pen with two large older dogs, until one dog took a dislike to her. The owner brought her inside but the landlord objected.

I’ve Been Adopted

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.
