Dog of the week: Boomer!

Boomer is a Rat Terrier mix that was adopted from LOYAL a few years ago, but who is being returned to rescue. He is again searching for his forever home with a loving family.

Boomer is a 5-6 year old Rat Terrier that is approx. 25 lbs. Boomer gets along very well with other dogs, and is fine with older, respectful children (the young child in his home scares him quite a bit, though there have never been any issues, so kids under 5 are not suitable for this guy). Boomer should not go to a home with cats as he has had very little exposure to them.

Right now Boomer is home a full working day without issue (8 hours), but a home where someone is around more often (no more than 4-6 hours alone) would be ideal. Who wants to be home alone by themselves all day anyway? When overly excited or scared, Boomer can exhibit some submissive urination, which is not at all uncommon. This can be easily managed with a calm, quiet environment and some simple confidence building.

Boomer is crate-trained and house-trained (a few post-new-home accidents aside!), and loves to be with his humans and having his belly scratched.

If you think you can provide a loving, stable home to Boomer, please submit an application through our website, or send an e-mail to for more information.

Happy adopting!
