Boomer the Pekingese mix
Hi my name is Boomer. I am a special needs dog because I am a blind. But I am very handi-capable, not handicapped! I quickly learned my way around my foster family’s home and with some careful coaching, I have learned how to find and go up and down the four steps in their split level home!
On walks, I walk confidently, kicking up my feet so I don’t trip. I have obviously had good experiences out walking, as I love it and am not worried about bumping into things. People have obviously always made sure I was safe. My only problem with walking is when it gets too cold out, no thanks.
I had a rough start in life. I was the only survivor of a discarded litter. But after my sad beginning I did have a nice home life for three years but when the family's situation changed, I had to go to Rosie's to find a new family. Rosie took me to a veterinary ophthalmologist regarding my blindness but sadly, nothing can be done. I can only see changes in light, not even shadows. I certainly make the most of it though and I am a happy guy. I don't know any better and I live life with my cup half full! I get used to my surroundings and then make my way around very well. I like when you talk to me and it helps me understand what my eyes miss. Tell me “Come on, Boomer” and I turn to stand next to you and expect you to take me somewhere, like up a big fight of stairs or someplace I don’t know well yet. Sometimes, I will need your assistance, like with unfamiliar places or large staircases, so you should be able to carry my 17 lbs. weight every now and then.
I would not do well in a home with small children as I will trip over toys left around and can get nervous with kids’ noises and play.
I am playful and affectionate and a cuddler and love to have people around me. I go to mush in your arms. When people are elsewhere in the house I lift my head and make soft little monkey sounds so that they will answer me.
If you have it in your heart to be my guide-human or just want a cheerful and comical little dog with a few special requirements, I would love to be your little buddy.

R.A.A. does not guarantee the breed or the temperament of the dog listed in this contract. Breed listing and description is based on R.A.A.'s own experience with the dog. The information indicated is what we have personally evaluated as to breed and temperament of this dog while under our care. We are not responsible for wrongly labeling a breed. As to an error in temperament, understand that we have evaluated the dog to the best of our knowledge and this is not an exact science. If any concerns, we strongly encourage you to contact a professional third party for temperament evaluation.

Rosie Animal Adoption is a proud member of CAACQ (Companion Animal Adoption Center of Québec)
Rosie Animal Adoption only rescues dogs - we are sorry that we are unable to rescue cats.
This organization is run entirely by volunteers - there are no paid employees. We try our best to save as many homeless dogs as possible. Since there are only a few volunteers, please understand that we are unable to answer phone calls about the animals. The first step is to fill out an adoption application which you can find at: www.rosieanimaladoption.org . You will be contacted only if you are a suitable match. Rosie Animal Adoption does not have a shelter where you can come and meet the dogs. All showings are by appointment after your application has been approved or at adoption clinics. If you have any questions, please contact us today. Please note, we do not adopt strays to families with children under 12. All family members must be present at the time of adoption.
Here at Rosie Animal Adoption, we understand that the decision to give up a family pet is not always an easy one and that the dog's best interests are always of paramount importance. Whether you have a family pet or a stray to surrender, please be aware that there are many unscrupulous people who are always on the lookout for unaltered dogs to breed strictly for profit. Dogs kept for this purpose, be it by a “backyard breeder” or “puppy miller,” are usually kept in inhumane conditions that are worse than you can imagine. We get many calls from people who are “in a hurry” to re-home their dogs, claiming that they simply cannot wait. With the increasing number of homeless dogs in the province of Quebec , our resources are always stretched to the limit and we do not always have immediate openings. We would ask that you please be patient when contacting our volunteers to surrender a dog.
We will do our best to help you as quickly as we can, and may also be able to refer you to another group that we are affiliated with, but the most important message here is to proceed very cautiously if you are giving away or selling your dog to someone who may be portraying a private individual. The best thing you can do is to be sure to have your pet spayed or neutered and the worse thing you can do is offer an unaltered pet “free to a good home.” We have seen what can happen.
