The adorable little white heart on Baru's forehead perfectly showed what a loving and sweet dog he was and all the love he had to give. He found his forever home with a Sheltie friend and a mom who was committed to giving him the best life possible. Baru took on a caretaking role with his grandparents, guiding them away from stairs and alerting another adult if he sensed someone was not feeling well. Baru also enjoyed visiting with his Sheltie cousin, Davey, also adopted from MNSR. Very sadly, Baru passed away on October 31st, 2017, following his dear friend Davey to the Rainbow Bridge.
