Being abandoned must be up there as one of the worst things that could happen to a person. When someone who you trust walks out on you, never to return, it can create a hole in your heart. The same is true for dogs. The only difference is that many times dogs don’t even know that they have been abandoned. At least with people, there may be words spoken or a fight and then someone leaves. Dogs, on the other hand, will just wait and wait for their person to come back. This was the case for one Pit Bull who was discarded like trash as he waited on the curbside on the family mattress for his family to come back.
The dog’s name is Boo. He chose to be faithful and wait on the mattress for his family. The junk that was discarded was all he had left of his home life, so he clung to it and remained loyal to those that abandoned him.
Neighbors became concerned when they saw Boo with the trash. One man posted a photo of Boo on Facebook. He also asked for the local shelter to come and get Boo, but no one showed up. No one that is until Mike Diesel of Detroit Youth and Dog Rescue heard about Boo.
Boo Remained Loyal To His Abandoners, Yet Finally Trusted His Rescuer
Diesel drove to meet Bo. He could see that the dog was broken hearted and waiting for his family that was not returning. Diesel eventually earned Boo’s trust. When that happened, he picked up Boo and drove him to the vet.
“He was just laying there, being his loyal self,” Diesel said. “Pillows were still on the mattress. Being the loyal dog he was supposed to be, he waited for his master to come back.”
Boo finally got the happy ending that he deserved. He was adopted into a family that treasures him and promises to never abandon him.
