** $5 in pledges for the rescue that pulls ** Boomer ACCT-A-122416 is currently considered urgent and at risk of euthanasia due to length of space and limited space for incoming dogs. Boomer must have confirmed placement with an ADOPTER or RESCUE PARTNER by SATURDAY, October 8th, 2022 at 10:00 A.M. Should Boomers medical or behavioral status change, his urgency and timeline for placement may also change. Boomer is the epitome of puppy, as he is only 10 months old. He arrived into our care on September 6th, 2022 as a stray. Boomer and his sister were found roaming around until picked up by our Animal Control Officers. His sister has since been adopted and now he his looking for his furever home. This young pup is looking for a home without children as he does have puppy tendencies and has not been properly trained. He does lack impulse control and will need socialization and training which takes time and dedication on both the owner and Boomers end. This young guy would do best in a home with structure, training and lots of play time! He is a ray of sunshine looking to brighten someones days to come! Per his behavior evaluation on September 7th, 2022: "When approached Boomer was standing in his kennel. I presented my leash and he was patient for me to leash him and exited without issue. Put on the breaks going back to the kennel. Boomer allows all handling, but becomes aroused and has an issue with impulse control. He will jump at you/on you, even at your face and becomes mouthy. He is very treat motivated, but has a hard time focusing on the treat and not jumping for it. He has knowledge of "sit" but has trouble focusing on sitting and would rather jump at you to get it. Boomer does become jumpy and mouthy during play Per staff on 9/9/22: "observed by kennel attendants, he can almost leap out of kennel. If necessary will move to H6. Per volunteer on 9/11/22: "this goofy young boy comes off shy and timid at first but just wants lovin! He hates returning to the kennel and really hopes for a home.
