This handsome little guy is Boomer, a 1 1/2 year old Australian cattle dog that is looking for a wonderful, forever home. Boomer was adopted by someone as a young pup, then given away when they no longer wanted him. The people that took him in had no time for him so he spent the majority of his life in a crate. They turned Boomer in and now he is hoping to start over again. Boomer is such a love. With being let down twice in his young life, you would think he would hold it against people but he does not. He just loves everyone he meets! Boomer is a little bit shy upon meeting new people but he warms up very quickly. Once he gets to know you, he'll crawl up next to you and not want to leave your side. Boomer is well behaved and will sit and shake nicely when asked. He gets along well with other dogs but would prefer a home with no cats or children under the age of 10. Boomer is so deserving of a great home where he will be loved and cared for the way he should be, and never given up on again. 12/17/12 File#22154
