This is our new family member. Please meet Bosco our new part Black Lab/Chow mix puppy. He was headed to the animal shelter to be put to sleep along with his 6 other brothers and sisters when our neighbor itervened and brought them all home with her. She found homes for all of them except for this one and 2 other girls who look like a chow. I like this little guy because he looks like the lab side of his bloodline. He is very shy (I think he might have been abused before we got him) but he has bonded with DD. My only problem with him is that he will not stay in the yard, he climbs the fence and gets out. We bought a cable to keep him tied in the back yard but he hates it and barks continously when he is there. I finally just brought him back in today. Does anyone have any ideas how to train him to stay in the yard or to become more used to the collar and cable.
