altBoss moved one last time after our previous update, and is now doing great in his new home with his "older" younger brother, Rocko. Boss is now being called Bosco. He and Rocko are in a loving home that fully appreciates and embraces the busy, high energy nature of cattle dogs.

These two lucked out and get to go everywhere with their new Dad. Everyday is a new  adventure, including long hikes, swims in the lake, and camping trips.

Rocko (formerly Rojo) also recently became a member of this wonderful family, when his original owner requested our help to find him a new home. We are ecstatic that both these dogs are now in experienced and loving hands, and an ideal forever home.




Our mission: To rescue, care for, and rehabilitate unwanted, abused, and neglected dogs of herding breeds, concentrating on Australian Cattle Dogs and Border Collies.

Our focus is on their permanent placement into appropriate, loving homes, and informing the public about the special nature and needs of herding breeds.


We are grateful for any contributions to help us rescue, care for, and transport animals.
