Booker was found by a Good Samaratin on the side of the road after being hit by a car. When brought into the hospital he was paralyzed and blind. After no owner showed up to claim him, we stepped in. We were told that it was doubtful that he would ever walk or see. But, with the support of a neurologist we decided to give this little guy a chance!
We hear this so often with our little miracle pups...that no one told them they couldn't. No one said to Booker, you will never walk again. No one told him he would not run and play again.
within a few days he was standing, and within the first week in foster care he took his first tentative steps! He now runs, plays, dances for his food! He loves, loves, loves everyone he meets! Booker snuggles under the covers at night, and his favorite place to be is with his person.
Booker is still blind. Sadly his retinas were detached in the accident, so he will not regain his sight, but that does not deter him in any way! He is fearless, and loves to explore.
Booker gets along great with the other dogs and cats in his foster home. He is housetrained, but needs a consistent schedule. He loves exploring as long as he can do so with his people.
Booker loves to cuddle. He loves climbing up on your shoulder and snuggles in to give hugs and kisses.
If if you are looking for a sweet, loyal, dedicated, fun, funny, love-you-forever companion, then Booker is your guy!
