Boomer – Lovable Lap Dog
Weight:15 lbs.
Approx 2 yrs old

This little cutie is named Boomer. He weighs just under 15 lbs. We believe he is a Border Terrier with possibly some Brussels Griffon somewhere in his background. Since he lost his family and was picked up as a stray, we are not sure of Boomers exact age. The shelter aged him at a little over 1, the Vet Tech aged him at about 3 years old so he is probably somewhere between the two.

Boomer is very affectionate and loves to cuddle. When you go to sit on the recliner or lay on the sofa, Boomer will race over to try to beat the other dogs for the opportunity to snuggle. If allowed, he will try to share your pillow when you lay on the sofa. If not allowed, he will curl up behind your legs.

He is happiest when he is sitting on your lap or next to you. The coveted seating place in our house is the recliner. When I go to sit on the recliner, the dogs will race to get the coveted lap spot or the soft doggy mat on top of the wood crate that is right next to the recliner (and the person sitting on the recliner). If he loses the race to the recliner, so he can’t get one of those two spots, Boomer will lay down on the foot rest of the recliner and wait for a spot to open up.

Boomer is pretty easy going about being touched. I can lift his lips up and look at his teeth, lift his ears up to see how they are doing, and touch his feet (which a lot of dogs don’t like) without any signs of aggression.

After he knows them, Boomer gets along with other dogs, and will not mind sharing your lap (or sofa) with another dog. Although Boomer gets along with other dogs, I cannot say the same thing about cats. He is fascinated by cats. I have not given him a chance to interact with cats because of his intensity when around them. If there is a cat in a crate, he will totally focus on the cat. He will paw at the crate. He will not come away when called. Based on these factors, I do not think he will do well in a home with a cat in it.

We believe that Boomer has spent much of his life in a crate. He is very willing to get in his crate when instructed to do so (of course it doesn’t hurt that he has an extremely soft doggy bed in the crate). Once in his crate he does not bark a lot like some dogs. Boomer is not yet totally housetrained but we are working on it. He does not ask to go outside to do his business, but does pretty well as long as we take him out regularly.

If you are looking for a small loveable lap dog, fill out an application today.

Anyone interested in our dogs must be over 21. We are only able to adopt to homes within a reasonable driving distance of the dog's foster home (15-20 miles zip code 75034) and please be prepared for a home visit by one of our volunteers. We do not adopt on first-come-first-served basis, we want to make sure the dog is right for the family and vice versa based on what we know about the dog's personality, habits and behaviors. Our adoption fee for dogs is $175. You can complete an online adoption application on our website we will get back with you asap.
Foster Homes are needed in order to help more animals like this one. Please consider opening your heart and home to a homeless animal. Check out our website on how to become a Foster Parent! Visit and look under HOW TO HELP. Furry Friends provides veterinary care - you provide the home and love!.

We also need Volunteers for Adoption Events at Petsmart and Cage Cleaners.

About Furry Friends Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Furry Friends Animal Rescue

We are a new group started in 2013 by a large group of experienced rescuers - we wanted to be part of an ethical rescue group which would allow us to help homeless cats and dogs in the North Texas area. We value all the experience and knowledge brought to this group by the volunteers so the group is member based. We welcome new volunteers and fosters, both experienced or new to rescue. You can contact us by email or through our website - we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Our Adoption Process...

We do not adopt on a first-come, first-served basis - it is our goal to find the right home for the cat or dog as well ensuring that the cat or dog is the right match for it's new family. A win/win situation.
For dogs, we require an application, home visit for approved application, and home trial period to ensure that it's a good fit for the dog and the family.
For cats, we require an application, but do allow same-day adoptions. Our goal is to find our fosters a "forever" home.
Our Adoption Fees are $140 for cats and $175 for dogs.

All our cats and dogs are fully vetted prior to adoption - this includes all age-appropriate vaccinations, feline leukemia/aids testing, heartworm tests, deworming, spay or neuter, microchips and other medical treatment as required.

You can fill out an Adoption Application online on our website.
