Bobo - Bobo was an owner surrender to us because of a change of lifestyle. Bobo is a 4 year old mahoghany sheltie that is currently intact, neutering is on the schedule for him. He weighs 27 pounds, stands about 15 inches tall and loves to smile. He is up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventive. Bobo has never been leash trained or house trained so he is getting a crash course in both. Shelties are quick to learn so we hope this will be an easy transition for him.

What we do know is that he is house trained, crate trained, gets along beautifully with other dogs and children. Loves to snuggle, loves to take walks, does well on a leash, and just an all around great little fellow. He is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventive.

She is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventive. When our vets ran blood work on PeyPey they found her liver values were not as they should be. We have done ultrasounds, more bloodwork and a liver biopsy and so far have not found anything ot indicate there is a problem. We are monitoring her, will run additional tests after a few months., During this testing and ultra sound there was also a very small lump found on one of her adrenal glands, we will also monitor this for changes.
