Pogo the Australian Shepherd

Dog Breed: Australian Shepherd

Pogo was sitting in the middle of our lane when we came home from work one day, skinny as a rail and his nose was all scratched. I got out of the car and he jumped right into my arms. We tried for a couple months to find the owner but out in the country we get a lot of people dumping dogs. Can't imagine why someone would get rid of such a cutie but he found the right house! He's now very spoiled, has gained a few pounds, and is a total Mama's boy.
