Bootsie’s Story: “He’s truly completed our little family”

When you adopt a shelter pet, you change their life forever — and often they change yours! Bootsie was living on the street before being picked up by a Good Samaritan and later rescued by PAWS. His snuggly and affectionate personality made him an instant staff favorite, and soon caught the attention of adopters Krista and Dylan. They fell in love as soon as they met him, and the rest is history!

Quickly acclimating to a life of cozy couches, “Bootsie is spoiled to the nines!” says Krista. “He really does just eat up the attention! His cuddles are so special, too. He sleeps with us every night and especially loves working from home with mom. He is such a curious boy. He watches the cars go by outside of our tall windows and loves scoping out new spots in the apartment. While he’s independent and comfortable alone, we call him our little shadow because he follows us everywhere we go.”

“Bootsie has been our biggest blessing in 2021, and maybe even the best thing to happen to our partnership as a couple. We no longer imagine life without him and we never want to! He amazes us every day and the amount of love, loyalty, and joy he brings to our lives has exceeded our wildest expectations.”

“We’re looking forward to spending our first holiday season with Bootsie and already have some gifts in mind with a stocking in tow for Christmas! …We look forward to loving Bootsie for many years to come. Thank you for saving his life and for making our lives immeasurably better in doing so.”
