OB's Story...
OB Update:  2/11/16

OB is definitely couch potato material and has an off button.  OB’s one job in his foster house is to get all the love from everyone. Every morning OB goes to the dog park, and he gets to play with the tennis ball,he also gets all the love from all the people there. But, his favorite thing to do at the park is walk around and get his sniffs in and while doing that he greets every person. OB gets along with dogs of all shape and size. Once OB settled into his foster home, with his new foster siblings, we slowly saw his personality come out and that wasn’t the only thing coming out, OB’s fur is starting to fill in and his tail is filling in nicely. It has become a nightly routine to go outside and play with his foster siblings. They chase each other in the backyard while OB tries to herd them. His favorite toy is a Kong football. OB is potty trained, crate trained, needs some training in walking on a leash but that will get better with time. At home OB relaxes on the couch or by the kitchen table so he can get scraps.  Please give OB the furever home he deserves.

Meet OB, short for Old Bones.  OB is a 10 year male Border Collie who has a
very sweet temperament and demeanor.  It is obvious that OB was not well
taken care of in his previous life, as he is missing a lot of his hair.  He
tested negative for demodex, so we suspect that he might have some food
allergies.

OB is definitely couch potato material and has an off button.  Our
volunteers think he is the sweetest dog, and we think you will agree.
Please give OB the furever home he deserves.

Please open your heart and home to adopting a senior.  BCIN takes in more
than a fair share of the senior BCs, as it is fact that adoption rates in
the shelter are reduced significantly once a dog reaches 5 years of age.
BCIN was OB's only hope of making it out of the shelter and we gladly
welcomed him into our rescue program.  OB will be adopted under our Senior
Program.  This means we reduce our adoption fee significantly so that he can
find a loving home where he can spend the rest of his golden years.

If you are interested in meeting our dogs, please go on line and fill out an
adoption application. We require a pre-approved application to be on file
before any meet and greets are scheduled. The electronic application can be
found on our website at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

OB, a San Pedro Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie for sale in San Pedro, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in San Pedro.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Pedro already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Pedro breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Border Collie breeders who help with Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Pedro paves the way for another one to be saved.
