Dogtown: Boscoe & Mako are good to go!

DogtownIf you’re reading this on Wednesday, Aug. 3, get on over to the Mad River Brewery and Tap Room and support Redwood Pals Rescue! We benefit from every pint sold during this Pints for NonProfits day. We will also have live music from 6 to 8:30 pm, silent and dutch auction items and special appearances by some of our adoptable dogs.

One of our favorite little guys, Boscoe, will be coming out for the evening. Boscoe has been in the shelter for far too long and really needs to find a nice home, ideally an adoptive home, but a foster could work for him for the interim.

Boscoe is a young adult male Pit Bull Terrier mix. He is very dog-friendly and is one of our go-to dogs for dog socialization work. He is good with males and females, large and small.

Boscoe has a special relationship with a family that takes him on outings on the weekend. Unfortunately, they are unable to take him home due to allergies, but they give him two thumbs up for charm and behavior! He has gone to Hiller Park and jogged on the Hammond Trail with their teenager. His friends say he has a wag for everyone, even cyclists going by.



Boscoe loads up into a crate in their vehicle with no objections and travels well. He is a nice medium size and is well on his way to learning heel, sit and stay.

Boscoe is not a good candidate for a home with cats or other small animals, but dogs are always his friends. We would be happy to arrange a meeting for anyone who might like to meet this handsome fellow. If you miss him at the brewery, please contact us at [email protected] or (707)839-9692.



The shelter has another interesting young male dog available. Mako is a small golden dog with a mysterious heritage. Guesses on his breed have included Basenji, Shiba Inu, Kelpie and “I have no idea.”

Mako is very shy in his kennel, but warms right up when he gets outside. He is pretty good on the leash and seems to like all the dogs that he has met.

Mako is probably a little under a year old and is at a great age for training. He seems to be housebroken and his gentle nature may make him a good candidate for a home with cats, a feature that can be tested by request at the shelter.

Mako is about 35 pounds, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and ready to go home from the shelter today. Mako is at the Humboldt County Animal Shelter at 980 Lycoming Ave. in McKinleyville. More information is available at (707)840-9132.
