When Boo was adopted and then taken back to the shelter for a third time, one of her back knees had been badly broken and never properly taken care of, forcing poor Boo to drag it along with her as she walked. She also had what appeared to be cigarette burns on her back, and severe separation anxiety from being adopted and then given back so many times. At that point, Boo was so desperate for love — and finally, the right people saw her struggling and decided to help.
Boo was pulled from the shelter by The Dog Cafe, a rescue that helps rehabilitate and socialize rescue pups. From the moment they met her, Boo’s rescuers knew they had their work cut out for them. Boo was absolutely terrified of most men and was very wary of strangers in general. She would bark like crazy whenever she felt threatened. She got along well with the rescue’s other pups, though, and before long, Boo’s incredibly loving, sweet personality began to shine through.
