VetBus Security - BOSCO
Hi! My name is Bosco. I'm a 6 year old El Cajon Special! I'm part Boston Terrier and part pit bull. You might not be able to tell from my cushy-looking surroundings in this picture, but I had a rough start in life. I was dumped at a veterinary clinic in El Cajon as a puppy by people who couldn't afford to surrender me to a shelter.
My mom, Dr. Heidolph, saw me, fell in love with me, and rescued me. Everyone who meets me is surprised that I'm such a sweet pit bull, but I wish they knew that we are a really misunderstood breed. I'm such a loyal boy that I would do anything for my mom. Fortunately, all I have to do is be me, but other pit bulls and pit bull mixes are forced to do things that we don't want to do, just so we can please our people.
Stay tuned for more information about rescuing dogs like me and breed prejudices.

Although these clinics emphazise spays and neuters, we also treat injuries such as bite wounds and abscesses, when needed, with surgical intervention and/or antibiotic therapy.
