Great Pyr Rescue Boo

Boo lived out her life on Dr. Graham's farm where she enjoyed different companions who were being fostered. She passed away at the ripe age of 14.Update: Boo's sad tale has been part of the Rescue site for a long time. Although Boo was basically catatonic when she came into care, and we had limited hope for her, Boo has in fact been coming around. She now leaves the barn on her own and has even taken to barking at the other dogs through the fence. She finally is starting to show some interest in the world and is no longer just lying around letting her life pass by. With these new developments, we have hopes for her.

Many people ask about her, and we are pleased to report she has her forever home. No, she was not adopted. Dr. Carol Graham has been taking care of Boo since she came into rescue, and knows that Boo will not adjust to another home or life. She does not adjust to change well - she trusts the home and life she was lucky enough to find. She has come so far and she is now a happy girl, even if she is not a candidate for adoption. She loves the farm, her barn and now has another older female friend that is her close companion. Boo will live out all her days here with Chris and Carol. Boo is a lucky, lucky dog.

Her Original Story:
There are Great Pyrenees Rescue dogs with special needs. And there are Great Pyrenees Rescue dogs that need someone very special. Our Boo is in need of both. Boo is a female, estimated to be 4 to 5 years old and is currently in the care of our rescue team. We acknowledge that it will take a very special person or family to give Boo a forever home. Here is her story.

When we found Boo she was catatonic. She was a feral dog and had been running wild in the Bracebridge area for almost 2 years. During that time she was shot and since she received no medical attention, one leg is stiff and cannot bend.

Given the trauma that Boo has experienced over the past 2 years, it is easy to understand why she does not do well with noise or disruption. At this time she will have nothing to do with other dogs. As a result other dogs ignore her.

However, Boo is responding to the love and affection that she has received from our rescue team and is slowly acknowledging people. She is very passive but will accept pats and attention, although she does not like her nose being touched.

She is showing every indication that she is capable of giving her trust to someone who will earn it. That is why we say that Boo is a special dog who needs a very special person.

Boo is a lovely dog and will need a lot of love and attention to bring her around. We believe that she has much love to bring to the person who has the love and compassion to earn her trust.

Lucky Boo

Boo is a very lucky dog. I am so glad she is improving but will not have to suffer the trauma of moving from the only safe place she has likely ever known.
