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.

How wonderful Boots finally found his forever home.
What a lovely story. The right dog always seems to make it into our lives at just the right time. Boots is just adorable and I’m happy Boots and Shaun found one another

Love the pictures and the story. Yay for Boots!

The Daily Pip says
So glad Boots found his wonderful home! Too bad he had to go through so many homes before finding the real deal. Ruby has some separation anxiety and immune system issues and other health issues. Some might think of her as high maintenance as well, but she brings so much love to our lives I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What an adorable dog with such a cute story 🙂 so glad he found his home for good!!!
