My name is Bosley and I am a red, 7 year old cocker boy. I ended up in a NC shelter, after my owners badly neglected my medical needs and I was picked up by animal control. I had suffered so much human neglect, the staff found out quickly that I was a very angry cocker boy and no one could deal with me, so I almost died. They contacted CCR for help to see if I might just get a 2nd chance. On CCR's initial visit they found that I was really difficult, very angry and they decided that I could not be helped. But, this nice rescue lady felt bad and returned a day or so later hoping she was wrong about me. She decided to give me a second look, hoping that maybe somehow she could help me by giving me a chance at a better life. This time, I was not as difficult and she was able to bring me in to rescue.

I came to CCR with a heart murmur that is caused by heartworms and these nice rescue folks got my treatment done, my recovery went well and I got neutered. When I first arrived, I needed some help fitting in with the other dogs, so these CCR folks worked with me on my behavior issues and I turned a huge mile stone. I learned to like love and affection and I can now give and receive it nicely most of the time. My ideal home must be an adult only home with a good stern alpha role model man and women. I cannot be placed into a home with children of any age due to my behavior actions at times. I will do well as the only dog in the home, or I can be with a very dog social pal, as I am good with other I just had a heart echo done and it showed that there has not been a big change, so I will remain on the same heart medicine dosage daily. I do still have a grade 4 heart murmur, but I am doing well considering and I would love to just have my 2nd chance to have a loving home for the few years that I might have left. Please open your heart to give me that special home of my own and a great rest of my life for however long I have left to live........I would love to spend some quality time with you!
