Contact the owner directly.
2 yr. old neutered male, current on shots and heartworm preventative. (not verified)
Bo is a smart, friendly dog who wants to work like a German Shepherd.
Owner says he is more of a dominant dog, but has met other dogs. He has been socialized with kids 5 and up. He seems to prefer women to men.
Contact Brandy Houk at (Edited by Darcy 1 - please PM me for phone number) or [email protected].

They need to find a home or rescue for him within a few days due to their landlord forcing them to rehome him as he tried to herd the cattle on the farm. According to the owner, he never tries to harm cattle, he just likes to herd them when they start
to chase him. Currently he is being kept in a small pen. He needs out of that pen and into a home who wants a dog who wants to work.


Note to Mods: Bo's Thread may need to be moved to Urgent soon. Rescues in the area are aware and full, but are trying to help Bo via courtesy and cross posting.

Re: Burke County, NC - BO - 2 yr old Male -

The rescue person who is in direct contact with the owner has confirmed Bo has a bit of a reprieve (how much is not yet known), while people try to find help for him before the landlord (farm owner) gives Bo's family no choic,e but to take Bo to a shelter (which in this area are high kil shelter, especially for owner surrendersl). However, this is not a great situation for Bo to be in.

Carole, I have asked for more information regarding whether or not the owner tried hard to work with Bo on not hearding before reaching this point.

Bo is still in need. His family has been posting at places with boards around where they live. The landlord has agreed to give Bo's family a little more time for him at the house - about 3 weeks - and one of the human societies is trying to find a placement also.

Bump!

Good news on Bo!


Email from Brandy today:

"He went to live with a couple that just lost their 14 yr old Shepherd. He loved them. He was crawling in between her legs to be pet before they even left the house. They said before they got to the interstate he was trying to help them drive."
