Helping death-row, abused, and neglected dogs find forever homes. We do not discriminate by breed, age or special needs. As long as we’re capable of helping out, we will never say no!
My name is Boomi. I’m a 1 year and 8 month old FMD mix. At 29 lbs, I’m the perfect size for the city.
I’m a shy dog that will take time to warm up to new people. My foster parents say I’m the sweetest dog. I excitedly greet them and will usually follow them to see what they’re doing around the house. I don’t consider myself a lap dog, but I’ll gladly accept pets and scratches when offered. Although I love attention and being with people, I also appreciate my “me” time on my doggy bed.
I’m crate-trained but love sleeping in my dog bed. I’m very considerate of my foster parents’ sleep. Even when the alarm goes off, I’ll wait until I know they’re up to say good morning with doggy kisses. I’m still working on potty training but I almost have it down. I’ve peed a few times in the garage but am working on consistently going potty on walks or in the backyard.
I haven’t shown much interest in dog toys nor do I chew on anything I’m not supposed to. I’m still working on learning new tricks. So far I know “sit,” “stay,” and “paw” but am working on performing them consistently. Unlike most dogs, I’m not very treat-motivated.
During my walks, I love to sniff and take in all the new smells. I’ll sometimes pull on my leash when I get excited or something catches my attention. My foster parents think I’ll benefit from leash training. I also love to run around and would prefer a home with a spacious backyard and frequent trips to the dog park where I can show everyone how quick and athletic I am. Recently, I also discovered my love for the beach.
I wasn’t fostered with other animals but think I may enjoy living with another dog. Some might say I’m a beta. My foster parents have never seen me act aggressively towards another dog, even the ones that bark at me. In fact, I love meeting new dogs and will usually go out of my way to say hi. I’m also good around young children.
Sudden noises/movement still startle me and crowded areas make me anxious, but I’m getting more used to it. I would do best in a quiet home with a family that’s patient and is understanding of the needs of a rescue dog.
If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
