My story

BOOMER ~ 10yrs; neutered, Samoyed/Retriever mix looking for a fitting adoption home in WA.

Boomer is a character of a dog and the lucky human being who will adopt him will get a formidable companion.

What makes Boomer happy are a few simply things:
 Being around you, lie next to you, and know where you are in the house
 Going three times per day on a walk. He is a gentle walker and does not pull
 Getting health food, and sometimes a marrow bone

ADR.org rescued BOOMER from a CA shelter where he was a frequent "stray" intake, and his owner did not come for him unless the shelter tracked the owner down and asked him to pick BOOMER up. But then there was this one time when he did not come at all to pick up him up -while BOOMER was so waiting for him.

Boomer is as laid back as the photo shows. HE IS NOT compatible with cats AT ALL.

As for being around another dog permanently- this need to be a slow progress of socialization, as BOOMER will not immediately be good around another dog. BOOMER lived alone with his owner, went on a lot of car rides (he loves car rides) and as it looks like was raised with another puppy from early on. But that was it. No socialization with other dogs outside. As a results now, BOOMER has a tendency to become a little bit nervous and too excited when he sees other dogs on walks that are playful or simply barking at him all the time. He does not know how to behave around other dogs.

BOOMER has now been living quite some time with the founder of ADR.org, and her pack. He is ready for a home of his own where he can be lying on your feet as long as he wants rather than being for hours by himself.
Since he has been living at the home of the founder of ADR.org, BOOMER got used to have the other dogs around that he lives with, especially in a crate set up for hours during TIME OUT or overnight.

The new owner can be a senior person as BOOMER's energy level is very settled and low but the adopter must be able to walk BOOMER often and must be able to handle him when on walks he sees another dog. Boomer then likely will start pulling a bit but he can easily be re-directed with a firm “NO” or “Let us move, Boomer.”

ADR.org can assure you that BOOMER is an adorable fellow that only longs for a truly deep friendship with you with you being the pack leader at the same time.

The founder of ADR.org is looking forward to hearing from you. There are MANY more photos and videos about Boomer that the founder of ADR.org will happily share with you as soon as you are interested and come forward.

Send an email to ADR@animaldefenserescue.org with your phone # and write a bit about you and why you think BOOMER would be a great addition to your life.
We will then have a phone call where we can discuss further, and I can get to know you better. After that call you will then receive an application, and we arrange a meet and greet.
BOOMER lives on beautiful ORCAS Island.
A big WOOF from here!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All AnimalDefense Rescue dogs are boarded or placed in foster homes until permanent, loving homes are found. The dogs are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, microchipped and given any necessary medical treatment during this time period. If you have seen an AnimalDefense Rescue dog that you are interested in adopting, the process is as follows: Step 1: The Application Each prospective owner fills out an adoption application. All applicants must live in WA (exceptions are possible), and we ask that children in your home are at least ten years old. We usually have no limited information of history of our rescue dogs and are therefore very careful about placing them in households with children. If you and the dog you would like to adopt seem to be well matched, we will respond to your application by email. Feel free to contact us at any time regarding the status of your application. Step 2: The Meeting Once your application is approved, an appointment can be made to meet the dog. You can meet the dog privately or at –if applicable- at one an adoption events, in which we participate occasionally. We require that everyone in the immediate family, including your current dog (if you have one) come to the appointment to meet your potential new dog. Adopting a dog is a big family decision and requires a commitment from everyone. If you currently own a dog, it must be up to date on shots, spayed/neutered and wear an ID tag. At the appointment, we will help you assess whether the dog is a good match for your lifestyle and your family or not. We can also answer any questions you may have about the adoption process. We will then proceed with a home check. Dogs from animal shelters can be amazing escape artists. By visiting your home, we can help you identify potential escape routes, and keep your new dog safe and secure. Step 3: The Adoption Before you bring your new dog home, you must sign an Adoption agreement with Animal Defense Rescue. In addition, a $ 375$ adoption fee is requested. The adoption donation is non-refundable. Please remember that adoption contributions barely cover our expenses and only defray the costs. Additional donations are greatly appreciated and will help us continue our life-saving work. Step 4: Post Adoption Follow Up Our goal is to help you enjoy life with your new dog to the fullest extent possible. If issues arise, or you just need some good advice, we are happy to do follow-up counseling by telephone or in person. We can also suggest local dog trainers.
