We were going to name this little guy Antenna but it was too much of a mouthful to say so we just kept the name the shelter gave him.
His breed was a mystery but a wonderful supporter donated the cost of a DNA test for him. He is 50% of both breeds of shih tzu and chihuahua.
Boomer was a unclaimed stray and the shelter was scary for him. He passed temp testing but he was shy and did not show well. He has been to our adoption event where there are a lot of people and other dogs and he did GREAT. He was good with children but we cannot be sure he could live with really small ones. He does well with other dogs in the foster home but he has not met any cats so we don’t know how he would do with them.
Boomer does shed a little so if you have allergies, he may not work for you. His hair is a little coarse and it doesn’t mat easily. He will need some regular brushing though to keep him from getting matted.

Our application can be found online at here.
Our adoption fee for dogs that are not seniors is $220. All dogs are spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccines and heartworm.
Our adoption process includes an application, personal and vet reference checks, and a home visit. We do not ship dogs under any circumstances.
We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check our front page for the dates of our next Pet Parade. Appointments outside of Pet Parade to visit our dogs are only available after an application has been filled out, and processing has begun.
Please be kind to our volunteers. E-mail inquiries will be answered much faster than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.
