Boo's upbringing is unlike that of most dogs. The skittish canine was recently found by animal control officer Shirley Zindler living in a hollowed-out tree in Sonoma, California, reports Dogster.
Zindler found Boo, starving and pregnant, hiding in the empty trunk of the tree and carefully removed the dog from her unusual living situation.
Boo was rescued, but sadly, the puppies she gave birth to several days later did not survive. It is uncertain how the dog ended up in the tree, but her rescuers have an idea. Boo was found in an area where many locals abandon unwanted pets.

"I had dogs in relationships, and then they end and the dogs would go," said Seacrest, who split from Julianne Hough last year. "This is my first dog. My very own dog."
