"Hey guys, don't mind me...just sitting down on the edge of the tub." Boomer is a goofy boy as you can tell from his picture. He is a 6 year old lab mix who really just loves being near people. Boomer is house trained and does well in a crate. He is laid back indoors, but does enjoy going outside. Boomer rarely barks, and he enthusiastically welcomes everyone he meets with a tail wag. Boomer gets along with other dogs and cats, but he would also be content with being the only animal in the home. He's not hard to please! He does need a physically fenced in back yard as he is still working on his leash manners. Boomer will need to be on carprofin (an anti-inflammatory) for the rest of his life due to a little bit of arthritis in his legs, but it does not affect his quality of life and does not have any activity restrictions. Could Boomer be the perfect dog for you?!
Nicole Z is his foster parent. The adoption fee for Boomer is $250, please complete our online application formspeak to a volunteer if you are interested in adopting Boomer. A volunteer will contact you.
All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
