Boomer - Lindsey's Info...

Boomer - Lindsey's Story...
Boomer is a Yorkshire Terrier (Yorkie) who was born on 9/10/09. He is in rescue because his owner has become very ill and can no longer care for him. He is a little large for his breed at about 13 pounds, but is believed to be purebred. Boomer is in a foster home with a 3 year old girl and an 8 month old baby. He loves to give his human kids kisses. Boomer has been around kids in his previous home as well. He also lives with two large dogs and a cat. Although he does just fine with the other animals, he prefers human companionship.

Boomer is a typical Yorkie and will need a home with a fenced in yard as he likes to run outside and play and cannot be trusted to stay close if off leash. He barks a little when he hears unusual noises and whines when left home alone, so an apartment setting would not be ideal. He will also do best in a home where his family is home often to give him a lot of attention. Finally, Boomer is a breed that requires regular grooming and as you can see from his pictures he would benefit from a trip to groomer upon adoption. He is micro-chipped and passed AKC puppy obedience in 2010.

Per foster request; Boomer is available to meet via an appointment. A complete application (www.animalrescueproject.org) is required before a meet and greet will be scheduled to ensure the right home is found for Boomer.

****His adoption fee is $325.****

The Animal Rescue Project (www.animalrescueproject.org) is committed to the best possible veterinary care for the pets it rescues—and it is looking for adopters who will be similarly committed.

All dogs and puppies are given a general check-up when they enter our program. They receive medication to remove any intestinal parasites (worms), fleas, and ticks they may have. Dogs greater than six months of age are checked for heartworm. If heartworm positive, the Animal Rescue Project treats the disease. Dogs and pups receive all age-appropriate vaccinations for distemper, and dogs greater than four months of age are also vaccinated for rabies, in compliance with State of Michigan laws.

Most dogs and older puppies are spayed or neutered before adoption. In the case of puppies not old enough to be safely sterilized, a $25 deposit is required at the time of adoption and is refunded to the adopter with proof of sterilization.

The Animal Rescue Project requires every adopter to establish an active relationship with a veterinarian no later than 10 days after adoption. Adopters will receive a plan for routine veterinary care at the time of adoption and are expected to work with their vet to complete the plan.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Boomer - Lindsey, a Kalamazoo Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Kalamazoo, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Kalamazoo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Kalamazoo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Kalamazoo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Kalamazoo paves the way for another one to be saved.
