Boomer has found his forever home, and it’s a fantastic new home at that! Boomer is now the cherished companion of Bill and his wife, a pair of empty nesters in Plano, TX. They recently lost their Australian Shepherd mix to cancer at a young age, and were so happy to be able to offer Boomer the home he deserves. We are so happy that we were able to find Boomer such a great home.
Here’s how our rehoming team presented Boomer’s adoption story to attract his new family:
Hi, My name is Boomer!
If you are looking for the best darned family dog out there, I’m the dog you have been dreaming of. I am such a good boy! I always have sunshine in my heart and a smile on my face. I live in Granbury, Texas, not far from Dallas/Ft Worth.
I am a gorgeous mix of Australian Shepherd and German Shepherd. I am not too big – and not too small at 49 pounds. I have really neat coloring and markings. Black and tan like a German Shepherd, but with some silver and brown patches to show my Australian Shepherd heritage.
I am just 2 years old. I am very healthy, neutered, up to date on my shots and ready to love. I am house broken and crate trained – a very polite and well-behaved boy (if I say so myself!)
Here is what my owners love the most about me:
- Playful nature
- Non Aggressive
- Seems to have a smile
- Boomer has a good heart, he is a happy dog
My family loves me so very much. That’s why they are looking for the best home ever for me. Their young adult daughter (my person) has recently left the nest and moved into an apartment. With her gone, and my owners at work much of the time, I just do not get the time, attention, exercise and playtime I need and deserve.
My family realizes that this situation is not the best, and want what is best for me. They are hoping to find me a great home with people who have lots of time to spend with me. A big, securely fenced yard would be perfect, and some great kids to play fetch with me would be the icing on the cake.
I want a family with Christian values who will embrace me as a first-hand member of the family. I don’t want a home where I am left by myself from early morning until evening. I want someone who is home hanging out with me. I’m OK for a few hours on my own, but 8 to 5 won’t do.

Boomer’s Current Home Environment
Typical suburban backyard. fenced yard, swimming pool, lots of trees with birds and squirrels. Boomer loves to watch them in the trees, he chases them around the trees with an innocent curiosity.
Boomer’s Current Family:
We are a Christian family with strong core values, our family, our children come first in our lives. We support each other and draw strength from each other. Our pets are family and treated as such. It is very important that Boomer find a good family to grow with.
Boomer’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Boomer loves his ball and stick. He loves for someone to throw either of them. He likes to spend his day outside, playing and discovering what the day has brought him. In the evening he comes in and sleeps in a crate as he is crate and house trained. We feed Boomer a high quality dry food (Taste of the Wild) and he loves his occasional dog treat. We do not feed him table scraps of people food.
Cute Boomer Story:
Sometimes we will look outside and see Boomer playing with his stick or ball, just running around being silly, rolling on the ground and throwing it around. When he sees us watching him his reaction is hilarious, it is like he is embarrassed that we caught him being silly by himself.
When I am giving him a dog treat, I will say “Look what I’ve got”, and I will act like I am taking a bite, he starts doing a low, almost hushed bark, like he is saying “hey that is mine”.
We have numerous short stories and a few short videos to share with a potential family if they would like.
Why is Boomer Being Rehomed?
Our daughter has moved to an apartment and is unable to bring him with her. He loves to play outside, run and be curious as most dogs are and we do not feel that he will be happy in an apartment all day while she works.
Boomer’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
A family with children or a couple that loves dogs. Boomer loves to play, he loves to sit with you and have you pet him and talk to him while he lays his head on your lap. He will bond with you, so we want a family that will give him the attention and bond with him.
We would like to be in touch with Boomer once placed with a forever home, but only if it does not confuse him or potentially put him in a state of depression. We want what is best for him.
