Sooty, a 1-year-young Labrador/Whippet Mix, was welcomed into Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary (BCFS) in June 2017. Although Sooty is just a pup, he has endured quite the journey in his life thus far.
After being abandoned at the gates of Evolucion Shelter in Mexico, Sooty made the trip to Canada and into a local shelter. However, it was soon discovered that Sooty was very frightened in a kennel setting, so he was transferred to BCFS where he could be cared for in a foster home while waiting for his forever family.
With special attention and patience, Sooty made considerable growth during his time in the BCFS foster program. Despite being a very nervous and timid boy, Sooty slowly began to gain confidence under the guidance of his foster parents and doggy siblings. As time went on, Sooty started to come out of his shell and even came to enjoy snuggling in bed and sitting on his foster mom’s lap (covering her with kisses!).
Making leaps and bounds of progress, Sooty was ready to find his forever home. We knew he would need a special family that would approach Sooty with patience and understanding as he continued to blossom into the happy-go-lucky puppy he was destined to be.
We are thrilled to announce that Sooty has found such a family and has now gone to his forever home. Congratulations to Sooty and his new family – Christine, Dave, Valentina, and Santiago!
