I wanted to feature Boots as soon as my sister, Alice G Patterson, told me she photographed a Boston Terrier. What I didn’t realize that in addition to great photos, Boots has a wonderful story.
From Ali: “Boots is our crazy, stinky, snuggly Boston Terrier. He was adopted by Shaun about five years ago from S.N.O.R.T. Rescue when he was almost three years old. He had a ‘ruff’ past, cycling through at least four homes before Shaun brought him to his forever home.
He is a high maintenance dog, suffering from severe allergies and separation anxiety, but Shaun took a chance and how glad we all are that he did. Boots has been a constant friend through so many hard times, comforting Shaun and his mother as they both endured cancer treatments within just a few short years of each other. He understood exactly what they needed, whether it was a cuddle or some entertainment.
Boots has a way of stealing your heart by bringing his favorite toy to play with you, cuddling up to you on the couch, or chasing imaginary rabbits in the back yard.
He is a true ‘good boy,’ and anyone will tell you just how special he is.
