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

Pete headshot

Pete is the sweetest, most gentle dog!! He’s had some bad luck, but it hasn’t changed his happy, loving disposition.  A purebred border collie, he was purchased as a puppy in 2012 to be a working dog.  Over time, the owners realized he was losing his sight.  The farm is on a busy road, so to keep him safe, they put him on a runner, where he remained 24/7.   They reached out to local border collie rescues to see if we could help find him a more appropriate home. He came into CBCR on 1/20.

I’ve Been Adopted

REMY was sighted on the streets of Charlotte and was so frightened and shy that Animal Control had to trap him to get him to the shelter. When CBCR’s volunteer rescued him and brought him home, he cowered in the garage for 2 hours before he could be persuaded to come into the house. There he was cheerfully welcomed by the foster’s personal dogs and slowly taught how to play. From that day on, the presence of another dog has been key to getting Remy through a door, into the feeding area, on to the couch, or out in the play yard.
