"My privilege was to be Boo's veterinarian. He had a kindred spirit and a kind soul. Boo's legacy speaks directly to children reminding them of the life-saving value in adopting a stray animal in a shelter. Who saved who? Discarded as a stray, then given a second chance, he became our community's treasure. He never quit searching. In 1999 Boo was inducted into the Florida Veterinary Medical Association's Pet Hall of Fame." It was my proudest day." Laurie A. Walmsley DVM Ashton Animal Clinic Sarasota "Anyone who reads this book, child or parent, will be warmed by Boo's story. He is an inspiration to those who have met with great challenges and overcame them. He also teaches young children the importance of sticking with their parents or people they know well, and always being aware of their surroundings and the people they encounter." Sherriff Tom Knight Sarasota County Sheriff's Office "Boo's life was an inspiration to me, as I was a part of his journey from a 'rescued' dog to a 'rescuer." Elise Matthes President, Sarasota in Defense of Animals In 1994, Joe and Patricia Abrams founded a search team called, Sarasota K-9 Search and Rescue Team, Inc. in Sarasota, Florida. This team was built on the premise of finding the lost, educating the community on safety, and working professionally side by side with all agencies to provide a successful outcome to all missions. The team has earned the respect and accountability from the state of Florida with many award accommodations. This book is written for the heroes of the team, the search dogs themselves. For without their courage and determination to serve humanity, people will not understand the bond between human and canine and what miracles will be produced to make a difference in the lives of families.
