Description: 
Please contact Teri (Tmmattson@aol.com) for more information about this pet. BooBoo has been with us since January of this year. She was unsocialized and had to be tranquilized to be brought home to our rescue and again later to be taken in for spaying. Since then we have had to work very hard to make a connection with her. Now she sleeps in the den of our home with the rest of our 'pack' and has adjusted well to 'tame' living. We are able to pet her and give affection easily now, but she is still wary of strangers. BooBoo needs to be adopted with her brother because their bond will help her adjust and be happy in a new home. The other requirement is that she needs to be adopted to a family that lives on a farm. Due to her background, she would not due well in a fenced yard. She and Buddy both need to feel that they are not confined in order to be comfortable. They love to run and go for walks with you in the woods and swim in the pond.She has been spayed and is up to date on all shots, heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventative. We estimate that she is about 14 months old. If you are looking for a loyal and loving dog, BooBoo will be your winner if you are patient and kind and willing to work on a connection with her. She is a good barker when someone drives up in our yard, but is easily quited when told to. She doesn't chase cats or chickens and loves other dogs. If your life matches her needs, Please consider giving her chance.
