This is Boomer. Boomer is a big boy at 60 lbs., and he’s about 2.5 years old. Because he has been with us for quite some time, he is currently a member of our Lonely Hearts Club, which means that his adoption fee is just $25! Boomer’s spent some time in foster care, where we learned that he LOVES strawberries. He went crazy when his foster mom ate them with breakfast in the morning. Boomer usually got her to give him one. And he loves rolling in the grass, but you guys already know that! He also likes tug-of-war, and he snores, which is kinda cute. Although he does fine being left alone, he does not like being on the other side of a door when he knows you’re in the next room (like the bathroom). Any time you open a door, he is right there waiting; he definitely wants to be around people all the time. Meet Boomer: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/40015921
