Pet Adoption in Belize: Have I Got The Dog For You – Meet Boo

Just Sunday morning I found a puppy.  A sweet white, hazel eyed pup climbing the steps at an empty condo next door.  Far from anywhere she should be.  Clearly lost.


She stuck around for a few hours.  No one was coming to pick her up.  So I borrowed a collar and a leash…


And brought her to the SAGA Humane Society Halloween bash.   My friend LouAnn helped me think of a perfect Halloween inspired name.  Boo.


The kids loved her…


the adults loved her.


She almost found a forever home in the states but…she wasn’t ready to travel just yet.

So she spent Sunday night at SAGA and then the next day…I thought I’d foster her for just one night.  That night has turned into two and I really need to find this beautiful pup a home.


Ears blowing in the wind this morning.



Isn’t she the best?  But she’s a puppy and not perfect so let me be honest about her short comings.

Things I wish Boo was a little better at:

  • catching and killing mosquitos
  • being satisfied with just one helping of dog food
  • going to the bathroom in a litter box.

But she is just 2 months old!  And other than that Boo is the most perfect, beautiful, loving, snuggly sweetie pie whose puppy eyes and puppy smell and puppy breath make her pretty irresistible.


And here’s the best part.  She is a dog comfortable in almost every situation.  The perfect dog to fit into your life.  Not only is she great at Halloween parties…

City dog.  Times Square!

Or you and your Boo practicing yoga.  So quiet and good.

Sure Boo is great at the beach – did you see her on that dock?  But how about the forest?  (Or what appears to be the Hobbit’s Shire.)

Will she get along with kids?  Yes!

Can she get along with other pets?  She’s still very young…I’m sure of it!

Look how happy these kittens look!

And wait until you see her prancing behind you when you go for walks…it’s the cutest thing ever.

Trust me, if I didn’t live in an apartment, travel so much and have three cats (who are currently plotting my demise from the loft area), I’d keep her in a second.  I already feel like she is mine all mine.

I understand that there are many animals in need…lots of great cats and dogs at SAGA here on the island but in a few days, I’m really loving my Boo.  And I want to find her a great home.

Belizean Potlickers are a fantastic “breed”.  Intuitive, street smart and so loving…

Please let me know if you are interested in this mild mannered pup.   Trust me.  She’s a peach.

Please share this post if you think you know anyone who might want a great dog.

Boo is waiting patiently for your message.

      Going going gone!

    I volunteer in animal rescue and this is the best adoption write up I’ve ever seen! Ever! Awesome job! I just love the photoshop pics showcasing Boo’s great traits. Four paws up!
    There are several Belize expat Facebook groups you might try posting on if you haven’t already, but I’m guessing you already know about them. In case you haven’t heard of this group, try this one called “Friends of Humane Societies and Animal Rescues in Belize”.
    Thank you so much for saving Boo and helping her to find her new home.
    p.s. I wish my dogs were better at those three things, too, especially using the litter box. 🙂

      Awwww. Thank you! I miss her but glad she’s at her home now.

      • Christine

        Oh I’m so happy to hear that she’s found her new home! Yayyyy! 🙂 Thank you so much again for going out of your way to rescue her…and also thank you for the other animal related posts you’ve made about the kitties and the Halloween party. I haven’t commented on them, but I enjoyed reading them and all the pics!

      Love that. LOVE DOGS! Awwwww…Boo. I’d SO follow up but she now lives on the mainland.

  • Miranda

    Rebecca, I come down to Belize often. In fact we have a condo there now. On our next trip at NY’s time, we hope to spend a couple of days on the mainland somewhere. I was thinking San Ignacio, and thinking Chaa Creek Lodge. But since you know everyone, and have been everywhere, I thought I’d get your input. Where to go, and where to stay for 2 nights. Do you know how I would get to Chaa Creek from Belize City airport? Then can I get a Tropic Air flight from San Ignacio to San Pedro?
    By the way, Did Boo find a home yet?

    • Belize Blog

      Chaa Creek is DIVINE. You won’t be sorry…it’s so beautiful, the staff is amazing…just perfectly done. They can pick you up from the airport for sure…or, I believe, you can fly to San Ignacio. The drive really isn’t that bad…

      And yes! Boo’s gotta home. WOOO HOOO. Or Wooo Booo!

    Great job of promoting Boo! So very happy she found a forever home! Kudos to you! Hope the cats have forgiven you!
