This is the story about a 2-year-old Azores Cattle Dog named Bo. Bo was often spotted at a car wash in Toronto, where he was left to fend for himself. He slept on a pile of junk in a nearby lot, surrounded by filth. He would scrounge for food from garbage cans in the middle of the night. And worse than all, nighttime temperatures would drop below zero. For close to a year, this was Bo’s life.
But catching the elusive Bo proved to be nearly impossible. Rescuers dressed up Bo’s bed with toys and treats to help him get used to their scents. He would be sure to keep his distance, even the motion of tossing food to him would scare him off. Eventually, the team set up a live trap and caught Bo and rescued him from the streets. Bo’s life was just beginning.
It didn’t take long for the rescuers to see Bo was sweet and gentle, despite the conditions in which he had lived for so long. Then came a new discovery — Bo was almost completely blind.
Watch the video below to see Bo’s remarkable transformation. And in case you’ve wondered, yes, Bo has since been adopted by a loving, forever family! Please SHARE Bo’s story with your friends on Facebook, help spread the power of animal rescue.
