*AVAILABLE TO ADOPT ON SEPTEMBER 1ST*
Boomer is a 5-year-old lab/shepherd mix. He came to the rescue heartworm positive and needing surgery on his back legs to fix a torn meniscus. After months of treatment and healing, Boomer is finally ready to be in his forever home! He is good with other dogs, cats, and older children. He loves attention and being near people. Boomer enjoys the outdoors and loves playing in the water. Boomer would do best in a home where there is someone home for much of the day. He does well in a crate, but he really enjoys and craves the company of people. He is extremely friendly, loving, and loyal. A fenced in back yard is a must for Boomer as he is still working on his leash manners.
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!
