Reston Pet of the Week: Bo

by RestonNow.com February 18, 2015 at 3:00 pm 2 Comments

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is a Border Collie in need of a home. Homeward Trails Animal Rescue is hoping to find this special-needs dog a forever home. Here is a little more about him:

Bo is about as gorgeous as they come. This special guy was left at a high-kill shelter in West Virginia because his owners were moving.

Although you wouldn’t know it right away, Bo is deaf, but he doesn’t let that stop him. He LOVES fetch, but will be submissive around other dogs while playing. He is great on a leash and doesn’t even pull!

We are working on teaching him manners around his food bowl and basic commands. He’s a quick learner, potty trained and can be playful but timid when first introduced to other dogs. He’d probably do best with another calm but confident and social dog, as he is very curious about and takes cues from his canine pals. When Bo looks up at you with those soft brown eyes you can feel his gratitude for giving him love.

To find out more about Bo, visit his Petfinder page.  If you adopt him, let us know and you will win a sample of dog treats from our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, along with $100 in Becky’s Bucks.

Becky’s Pet Care, the winner of three Angie’s List Super Service Awards and the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters’ 2013 Business of the Year, provides professional dog walking and pet sitting services in Reston and Northern Virginia.

    I am not a huge Border Collie fan, but Bo is an exceptionally handsome specimen.

    What a sweetie, we have a house full of cats ( and they really don’t like dogs) or I would take him! Nice he was rescued from that kill shelter, I can’t really fathom his owners leaving him there to die. Unbelievable.
