Dog for Adoption: Boo
Boo us another of the ARK old-timers. He is 13 and has been at ARK for a very long time. There is a sadness about him. Naturally, he is cared for at the shelter but there is no joy in his life. For Boo, the greatest joy, even more than food or walks, is having his own person — something the shelter cannot give him. Boo’s original owner was a homeless person who had to give Boo and his siblings up. All but Boo found a home. A strong, healthy dog, Boo doesn’t pull on the leash and would be a perfect companion to an older person who loves to stroll but needs a gentle, older dog. Boo is fluffy like a teddy bear and needs his fur cut regularly, but he has an excellent reputation with the trimmers and is quite a handsome fellow. No innocent to life’s hardships, all Boo yearns for is one true friend to call his own.
