Just So Quick "Boomer"'s Info...
Rescue Group: All About Hounds
|Size:||Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)||Sex:||Male|
Boomer arrived in Tennessee on July 21, 2012 from Emerald Coast, Florida. He is a beautiful, black boy with a shiny coat and amber eyes. He is a bit shy, but is eager to find a family to call his very own. One look at this gorgeous hound and you will melt!
Boomer's foster mom has this to say about him.....
"He is kind of shy. He is loveable to a point and he sleeps in the bedroom at night with us and every morning he roaches to get his morning belly rub. He now stands to eat and will eat in any room. Boomer eats at a perfect pace and finishes his bowl completely.
He is a horder, he has taken every toy and put them in his crate. He LOVES toys. He likes squeeky and floppy toys. He whips his head back and forth with the floppy ones.
He crates wonderfully. He is definately a barker. Again he barks if he hears movement but cannot find the source of the noise and he barks outside if he sees people or something he cannot get to. Kind of like saying "Hey come here! I wanna sniff ya". Boomer is also a tugger! He is a very strong muscley boy and he very much will try to pull you where he wants to go. He is quick to follow command though if you say no or don't allow him to go somewhere, but he will try initially. He has also tried to run and play on the lead. He is really strong.
The only weird thing he does is he refuses to hang out in the living room with us. He lays all day in the bedroom on the floor. The only time he does not lay in there is if we shut the bedroom door and do not allow him access. Even if we move all the blankets out of the room, he lays in that room. He does not come often when you call. You usually have to walk to where he can see you and motion and he is good to go. Otherwise he lays in the bedroom all day. Sometimes he comes out to check things out, then right back he goes. He is not hurting, sick or anything so we just let him do his thing. He is comfy back there."
