1 yr. Neutered, Macnab, rescue

Bosco is about 1 yr. And a very sweet guy.
His story, and for his sake it's good it is history!
He was spotted running in the desert, 110 degrees. A great Samaritan opened their door to try and coax him with a bowl of water, and he Leaped into their van! Hot bloody paws... and so grateful! If they didn't already have 6 rescued desert dogs, they would have loved to have kept Bosco, but couldn't in reality...
They researched breed specific rescues, and brought him here.

He was not, as predicted, he was not in rescue very long. He was adopted, and unsupervised, Bosco began herding the horses... unsolicitedly. Not good. A good kick broke his jaw. Being young, and agile, it wasn't bad, he was vetted, jaw wired, removed wire, and viola, he's great thank Dawg! Completely healed. 
Going forward, knowing this, unless someone is looking to train a working dog, to do it right, he should not be unsupervised, around cattle or horses.

Since coming in, Bosco made lots of new doggie and human friends.
He's having a blast swimming in the creek (water dog!) and running on our off leash hikes.

Bosco is good with other dogs. Walks on leash.
Rides well in the car. And super cute!
Loves the water (swimmer!) and fantastic off leash. 

More information and pictures to come once he gets to our rescue.

About Central Coast Herding Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Central Coast Border Collie and Herding Dog Rescue is a Rescue Alliance partner, a federally recognized 501(c)3 non profit organization dedicated to finding great dogs great homes. County of San Luis Obispo Animal Service Operating Permit #C2649

Central Coast Border Collie Rescue (CCBCRescue) is dedicated to helping find homes for Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, Australian Cattle Dogs/Queensland Heelers and other herding breeds and mixes. This site lists dogs in shelters as well as dogs in homes and foster care, and is intended to help adopters seeking good dogs, and dogs seeking loving homes. Why we do it: Herding dogs are not for every one. Too many adopters get these dogs as status symbols only to find out, their life style doesn't meet these high energy dogs needs. As a result, these wonderful misunderstood dogs wind up in shelters. We understand what drives these dogs, we can place them appropriately. Our mission is to educate people and save dogs. We do it because we love these dogs, with a little effort, can give them a good new life. Euthanasia is not the solution to out animal overpopulation issue. Education is.
