Why Adopt A Rescue
Available for Adoption
Boomer is a 9 month old double merle sheltie. Double merle shelties are the result of the breeding of two blue merle shelties which often results in the offspring being deaf and/or blind. Boomer is deaf. He has excellent vision and in the right home with the right training he can live a perfectly normal life. He is a sweet, affectionate, playful boy. He is a bit over sized, very smart, loves to play fetch with anything you throw, and loves his fluffy toys. His former owner most likely did not understand why he was deaf, or even know that he was. We are learning commands with sign language and he is eager to please. Boomer is ready to go to his new home. His new people will be carefully chosen and must have a securely fenced yard and dog experience. Boomer loves to run run run and play with other dogs, so a playmate would be great. No small children.
Boomer has gone to his new forever home with a wonderful family in VA.
