Boots's mom says: Our family adopted Boots after she was abandoned at about three months old. Her two front white paws are the reason she got the name Boots, from what we understand. We rescued her after the neighborhood kids had given her the name. She is the sweetest, most docile dog in the world. She adores my children and is the constant companion to our doberman mix, Dixie. Boots is my little shadow and follows me wherever I go. She even sits outside the shower and waits for me. She loves sitting outside, either in the sandbox with my son or just sitting in the shade watching the kids play. She is my youngest four-legged child and I love her to pieces. She doesnâ€™t bark and is the perfect dog.
