Update on Sooty

Sooty, a 1-year-old Labrador/Whippet Mix, arrived at BCFS a very timid and fearful young lad. With love and dedication, he gradually began to come out of his shell while in the care of his foster parents. We were overjoyed when Sooty found a fur-ever family and are now happy to report that he is doing well and truly living the good life in his new home.

According to Sooty’s adoptive mom…

“Sooty’s name we have changed to Blue to represent his fresh start in life. He also reminds us of a bigger version of our former Italian Greyhound, Misty Blue!

The day after we brought him home, we hit the road in our RV (our 2nd home) and it has given all of us a chance to really get to know and bond with him. He has done extremely well on the long drives. He loves sleeping with the kids and waking them up with kisses in the morning. He is still tentative about going out of the truck or the RV but once we pick him up and get him out he is loving his many walks and meeting new people and other dogs. In Lake George he experienced a very busy boardwalk with lots of people and noises and he did well. We enjoyed dinner on a patio and he was calmly at our feet checking out everyone walking by. After we walked on the beach and he went up to his belly in the water! We are now in Quebec City (beautiful) and he has loved learning some French! He has his own chair when we are at the campfire and just chills with us as we tell ghost stories. This weekend we are back home and he can get reacquainted with our three cats, Maple, Marco and Polo.


We all love him so much and can’t believe what a great fit he is for us! Thank you for all you do to save these animals and finding them forever homes!”

It sounds as though Sooty, now Blue’s, adventure in life is just beginning!
