Got Room? …for a street dog?

By isak, June 29, 2011


About eight weeks ago, Boomer was spotted walking down the street near North Main and I-45 in north Houston following a man who appeared homeless. A very pregnant woman just a couple weeks shy of giving birth stopped and asked the man about the dog. The man said he was taking Boomer to a friend who had a room to see if the friend could keep Boomer. The next day, the man appeared again with Boomer in tow. His friend was unable to keep Boomer and neither was he. He asked Marcia to please find him a good home.

Boomer got into her car and off he went to start his new life. His first stop was the vet’s office to get checked out. He had an infection, so the doctor prescribed a round of antibiotics for him. Once he completed his round of meds, he was scheduled to be neutered. Then back to the kind lady’s house to recoup.

The lady has given birth and with a new baby and the space limitations of a townhouse, she and her husband are now looking for a forever home for Boomer. He is a handsome young man about a year old. He still has lots of puppy energy and seems to have had little training. He is a bit rambunctious, but he listens.

He loves people and seems to get along well with other dogs. He hasn’t had any formal training — except he knows “sit,” so his manners are a bit rough, but he wants to please and is quick to learn.

If you have a fenced yard, time to train and some room in your heart for this guy, please call Lucy at 713-302-2433. She can tell you more about him. And please share his story.
