A man named Nic and his wife went to a shelter in the hopes of finding a dog that they can adopt. When they got there, they were shocked by the dogs’ situation. There were over 300 dogs, and they could tell that the volunteers could not take care of all of them.
Among the dogs, a canine named Boo stood out for the couple. Boo was very withdrawn and fearful. He was very anxious when visitors approached him.
Still, the couple fell in love with him and decided to adopt him. The couple knew that it was going to be a challenge, but they did it anyway.
When Boo arrived that first night, he sniffed around. When he saw the couch, he ran to it and stayed under it. It was very challenging to get him out, so Nic and his wife gave him time.
They did reach out to him to give him some food. The couple encouraged him to get out, but it didn’t work. The only thing that did was when they placed food away from the couch. Placing it from a distance was helpful as this forced Boo to get out to reach the treat.
Getting out from under the sofa was only his first achievement. The second was when he allowed Nic to pet him. The couple got very excited when this happened. That gesture made them realize Boo trusted them.
Their next challenge was to get him out of their house since they have a beautiful garden. They wanted Boo to enjoy it as well. Again, they used food to lure him out of the house. This worked.
The moment that Boo’s paws touched the grass, he became a different dog. He became a happy one.
This was when he truly opened up. He ran around and started to enjoy himself. Nic and his wife were delighted! They were so proud of Boo and made them look forward to seeing more of his achievements.
