Bo is a very shy but sweet 9 month-old Border Collie/Spaniel mix male who came into an overcrowded county dog shelter as a stray with Luke, who looks to be his littermate. Both dogs were very frightened at the shelter and not likely to get adopted there so made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they would be able to relax in a foster home while searching for permanent new homes. Bo had likely never seen a leash before coming into the shelter and he is still reluctant to walk on a leash. Each day he’s getting a little bit better but it will continue to be a work in progress with him when he goes to a new home. Bo gets along well with Luke but they do not need to be adopted together. Given his shyness, we do want to place Bo in a home with another dog so he can follow that dog’s lead and feel more confident. Bo would do best in a home where his family is around much of the time so he can get lots of socialization and one on one time. Bo weighs about 35 pounds but will likely be about 40-45 pounds once full grown. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Bo. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
