Meridian Pet of the Week: BooBoo


BooBoo, 4, loves to go to the play yard, which is basically a treasure trove of incredible scents, investigate the area, and unlock new secrets. Playtime is most definitely the best time.

She’s also a big fan of butt scratches. Oh, and neck scratches. But then again, who doesn’t like a good scratch or two? BooBoo is a lap dog at heart, and once she makes friends with someone, she does not hesitate to ask for loves. This little girl is so affectionate around people she trusts.

She was surrendered to a rescue in Arizona by a family that kept her locked in a bathroom for most of her life. Obviously, BooBoo deserves much, much better than that, so we’re hopeful that we can find her happy ending here in Idaho. She stayed in a foster home through her previous rescue for several months before she was transferred here to find an adopter. We learned that she’s good with dogs and kids, but we don’t know what she thinks about cats.

BooBoo is housetrained, doggy door trained, and a huge fan of car rides. Who wants to come meet her?
