Boomer is an 2.5 year old pup in need of a new home. He was adopted from us as a puppy, but is family moved and was not able to take him, so he is looking for a new place to hang his leash.
Boomer is very energetic, and loves to run all day long. He is friendly with other dogs once he warms up and gets to know them, but prefers his people. He loves to cuddle at night, is very affectionate, and will happily take all the attention he can get. He also likes to play fetch with balls and his Frisbee and loves bones and chew toys. Boomer is looking for a home with an active family. He is a talented jumper, so a tall fence is required for him. Boomer is housebroken and crate trained, but would do best with a family that has someone home most of the time.
Want to learn more? Please stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet to find out if Boomer is the right boy for you! (Local adoptions preferred — Philadelphia and tri-state area [South Jersey and northern Delaware] only.)
PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING US! We are NOT a shelter: All of our dogs live in private homes with foster families. Come and meet the Almost Home dogs and their fosters at our Meet & Greet events, where you can learn more about our wonderful dogs from the people who live with them, find out which dogs are on their way and when they’ll arrive, and fill out an application to adopt or foster.
We cannot adopt to homes where electric-shock fencing systems or training collars are used. For more information on the dangers of electric-shock collars, please visit banshockcollars.ca/studies.php and http://www.hollysden.com/say_no_to_shock.htm (scroll down and click on the "Invisible Fencing Systems" link).
We do not have an online adoption application; to request an application, e-mail us at AlmostHome4Dogs@yahoo.com . To speed e-mail processing time, be sure to note the name of the dog you are inquiring about in the Subject line. For Meet & Greet times and locations, visit our home page, where you also will find information on our adoption process and fees.
FOSTER FAMILIES ARE LIFESAVERS!! Can you open your heart and home for a few weeks to homeless shelter dog? Remember, by fostering a dog, you save TWO lives — that of your foster dog, and that of the dog who takes his place in the shelter! Come to a Meet & Greet and find out if fostering is for you — there's no reward quite like the feeling that you've saved a life ... or two!
