You’ve heard of rags-to-riches stories about humans, but in rescue there are similar stories for dogs whose tales begin in dire circumstances and end in joy. Roo’s story is one of them.
From shelter—to rescue—to-rescue—to happy home
Roo is a senior miniature pinscher who, at age 11, was dumped at a shelter with painful abscessed teeth and a prolapsed rectum. Her first lucky break came when a rescue took her in and treated her medical conditions. Roo was vaccinated, her rotten teeth were removed and her prolapsed bottom was surgically repaired.
The rescue wasn’t set up for her long-term care, so BCFS said yes to accepting Roo. How could we say no to this sweet bean?
Comfort, love, care, and time, at BCFS
How happy this lovely, vulnerable little min pin was with the simple things in life: a heated soft bed, food and water, foster sibling pups for company, gentle walks, love, and time to recover.
Then, Roo’s life took another good turn when a family saw her story, and as her new mom wrote, “When I saw her, Roo, I knew I could give her a home for the last few years of her life.”
Sealed with a kiss: Roo and her new mom Alana
Roo, at eleven, was a good fit with Alana, Michael and her new senior siblings — a 13-year-old female shih tzu and 11-year-old male min pin. They’re a trio of Golden Pups!
Seniors like to keep warm in winter!
Roo and her new siblings eat soft food which is easy for a girl without too many teeth like Roo to chew, they have a fenced yard, and from these new photos mom Alana sent to update us, soft beds by a cozy fire!
Alana sends an update:
Hello Silvana, just want you to know that little Roo, has just blended into our family beautifully ❣️
We love her so much already ❣️
I am on the couch recovering from a total knee replacement, so both Michael and I are home full time, all the pups seems to love that!
Couldn’t be better for them!
Thank you for her, for as long as we have her!!!!!
Alana , Michael, Bailey & Zeus
Well, maybe Zeus would not thank you as much as us!!!
We are tickled pink to hear how well Roo is fitting in, how comfy and loved she is, and happy to have helped make her “rags-to-riches” story come true.
Thank you, Alana and Michael, Bailey and Zeus for welcoming little Roo into your home and hearts!
