Asking for help is never easy – but being wise enough to know when you are no longer able to care for an animal, and making every effort to find someone who can is the right thing to do, no matter how difficult. Today, one of our readers has come to that sad realization, and is asking for help. Anita sent us the following message yesterday:

My home is in foreclosure and will be sold on Feb. 16th 2012. I have found shelter for my son and myself, but I cannot find a place that will allow dogs. I need to find our girl a new home. Boo Boo is a beautiful, loving dog who gets along with everyone, and I can’t bear the thought of her going to a shelter.

She is a great dog, very calm and loving; she loves children, other pets and just about anybody she meets. She is 11 years old (an old lady) but she does not deserve to be put in a shelter and/or put a sleep just because I have to move. Life can be cruel, but she deserves a happy ending with a family who is willing to give her a loving home.

Boo Boo is truly a gentle giant. She is currently located in Michigan. If you think you can provide her with a secure, loving home, please e-mail me at [email protected]
