A female dog was found living inside a tree, scared and alone. She then made a new start for a happy life in a real home surrounded by people who love her.
the chihuahua, named Boo, was reportedly abandoned in the wooded area where she was found in April. Left to her own devices in the wild, the dog took refuge from predators and other dangers in a hollowed-out tree trunk.
When rescuers arrived to help her, Boo had lost all faith in the humans, but once she was safe, she slowly began to come out of her shell.
Abandoned dog found living in a tree gets a happy ending
“She will make a good companion for someone who will love her and know how to give her confidence”, Animal Control Manager Shirley Zindler said at the time. “I will take care of her until the right mate is found. »
In Zindler’s care, Boo learned to trust again and seemed eager to regain the love of a master, which had sadly been denied to her.
“Little by little, she started welcoming me with happy dances when I came home; her first tail wagging and her first shy kisses were a milestone,” Zindler wrote on his blog, The Bark. “She started following me around the house wanting to be close, but she still had a long way to go and was still resisting touch most of the time. »
But Zindler knew what Boo needed most was a forever home where she could have a life filled with unconditional love, as any animal deserves. With an influx of support when her story surfaced on the internet, it didn’t take long for Boo to find a new family.
Boo’s long wait in the tree is finally over.
“The family is doing a fabulous job with her and Boo is settling in well”wrote Zindler.
With a story as heartwarming as that of Boo, a dog for whom all hope probably seemed lost, it can be easy to forget that there are many others like her who would love to find a loving, loving home. Also, Zindler wants people to know that they all deserve a happy ending:
The beauty of Boo’s story is that it got people thinking about adopting pets in need. When people out of state asked to adopt it, Zindler suggested they check local shelters and rescues.
Every day, healthy and friendly dogs are abandoned and end up homeless in communities around the world.
