Tater (BoBo) Joins the Pack-Adopted!

Tater (BoBo) Joins the Pack-Adopted!

Update:  After only being on heartgard for 8 months, BOBO is heartworm negative!


Note: Bobo has been renamed Tater!

Foster Update from Betty:
Bobo aka Tater had us all fooled. He has lots of energy to go around. He gets along so well with all my dogs. He loves to play chasing games with them. He also loves to hangout with humans. Nadia and Bobo have hit it off real well. She’s taken over his training and is working on sits and downs with him. He’s responding real well to his training. He can definitively go to a hone with children and other dogs. He’s a real affectionate boy. Check him out in the pictures. He’s in Nadia’s room on top of her bed. We normally don’t allow any dogs on the bed or couch but Bobo is our exception =) Betty shared with me this morning that Tater is the best dog she has ever had. He’s the only dog that is not crated while she is away, he has never been destructive, totally housebroken, good with kids, dogs, cats, and loves everyone. She says he is quite, and noble.

Betty agrees with me that he is a Collie Collie, and may not have any Border Collie in him whatsoever. He shows no sign of having a high drive like most Border Collies, but his temperament is indicative of a Collie Collie, like Lady Di and Princess Kelly (Arabella). Betty also admitted that Tater is the only dog that is allowed to sleep with the family at night! Looks like this boy has it made in foster care, eh?
Rescue History: Terry Watts knows how to pick them! When Tabitha went to GA to pick up 2 pregnant females, she picked BoBo up from Panama City on the way home! I will have more info regarding BoBo when I review his paperwork, however, we have been told that he is heartworm positive. I will discuss a medical plan of action for him within the next two days, and more testing will be done to determine the saturation level. His liver/kidneys will also be tested to see if he is a candidate for the slow kill method. BoBo is too active of a dog to go through aggressive heartworm treatments – it’s too dangerous. Terry Watts has saved many of our dogs, the last being Boscoe!
Foster Update: Bobo appears to be between 3-6 years old, which explains his desire to be a couch potato! He’s very calm and quiet, and although he used to be an escape artist, since his neuter, he’s not interested in leaving! We really want to change his name to Walter, or Tater, but Holly may not like that idea. We don’t think BoBo suits him at all. BoBo comes with a 6 month prescription for monthly heartgard. He’s the perfect Border Collie for someone who wants a BC but not the high drive!
Betty suggests that he may be a collie / border collie mix, but he sure looks like a Border Collie to me.

September 26, 2010 Update:

BoBo is loving life. My nieces and nephew will be coming to live with me for a little bit and they all agree that BoBo is their favorite dog in our household. The little one does not leave him alone. She follows him everywhere but surprisingly she is extremely gentle with him and he loves the attention. She wont stop hugging him and giving him kisses on his head. BoBo’s in heaven!



October 11th Update:

Here’s BoBo with his daddy and hanging out around the property.


November 5th Update:

Hi Gisele, Checkout BoBo enjoying this weather and having the time of his life. Next month he will be heart worm tested again and hopefully things will be better than they were 6 months ago. Also, I got an email from the 2 owners of the Huskys and they are all doing GREAT! I’m so happy for them. I wanted to let you know that I’m working on getting back to fostering. Not sure if I told you this before or not but my nieces and nephew are living with me for now until things get settled with their mother. Desiree, the oldest, is HIGHLY alergic to dogs. It’s CRAZY!! I’ve had to move everyones crate into the office/dog room now and the daily cleaning of hair that this involves is ridiculous. I’m in the process of getting plans and then pulling permits of make a 40×50′ building with indoor and outdoor kennels for all the dogs. This is something I want to start and finish by mid next year. Once that happens, I can take in 1 or 2 fosters at a time. I’ll keep you posted. Hope all is well!!!




June 2011 Update: After being on heartgard for 8 months, Bobo has tested negative for heartworm!!!
