Doozer Posted January 30, 2009 Report Share Posted January 30, 2009 Hello! I am new member to this forum group as of today. I live in Mt. Airy, NC (also known as the real Mayberry!) with 2 BC's, 2 Aussie's, 3 cats, 2 thoroughbreds and 1 mini! I have just gotten into herding with my youngest BC who will be one in March. I rescued him along with his sister and Mom last April from the animal shelter in Ashville, NC. They were in horrible shape. The pups were just 3 or 4 weeks old and the mom was emaciated. Unfortunately one of the pups did not make it. But, I found a great home for the mom and I have the other pup. Ricky has an extremely strong herding drive and after only 3 weeks of formal training, he knows all his commands, is flanking well, is pretty balanced and has a great lie down. Because he appears to be so talented, I would love to see if I can find out anything about him. I am putting the word out to see if anyone knew about any lost BC's in the Asheville, NC area around or before April of 2008. His mom was white with a split face and a black spot on her back.She was about 1 and 1/2 to 2 years old at the time I rescued her. There were supposedly 5 BC's running in a pack as strays. I don't know what happened to any of the others. No one was microchipped or collared and they were turned in as strays. I know it's a LOOOONG shot but you never know until you ask. Anyways, that's my story! I am hoping to compete with Ricky at some point in the future. He's a very talented dog and I can't wait to see how far he can go. Just seeing him do what he was meant to do is awesome. It's addicting just to be the spectator! Looking forward to meeting everyone. It's great to have this resource!
