I am in need of an experienced adopter, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Color: Blue and White Tick
Breed: Bluetick Coonhound
Age: 5 Years
Boomer is a sweet boy looking for a home experienced with hounds.
Big fan of: SMELLING! Boomer is a true hound and loves to follow his nose. It is very important that Boomer is taken on long walks every day to help him satisfy his need to smell new smells. The yard will only vary so much in smell so Boomer will get incredibly bored if that's his only chance to use his sniffer. Hounds do not often make good off leash dogs but with some recall training, Boomer would enjoy some trips to the dog park.
Not a Fan of: Allergies. Boomer came into the shelter with a poor hair coat, likely due to either flea or food allergy. This can be helped and prevented with regular flea treatment and a high-quality diet without corn, grain, soy or by-product meal.
Special Features: Boomer is proud of his age and thinks you should be too. If you are over 55 years of age, please ask about our “Young at Heart” Adoption Special which applies to animals over 5 years of age.
Dream Home: Hounds are known for following their noses and sometimes that means following it right outside of your yard. Boomer will not be the kind of dog you can leave in the backyard unattended as he will surely escape to find something that smells more interesting. He enjoys the company of other dogs and wouldn't mind living with an equally mellow canine. Boomer has lived with cats before and could do so again, so long as the cat is a confident one. Children over 10 would be alright with Boomer, so long as they are respectful of him and familiar with large dogs.
