Boomer the Pekingese mix

About Boomer

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.

Surrenders

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.

Help Jasmine Heal

Help Jasmine Heal!!! Jasmine the Shepherd mix was found alone and injured. She had probably been hit by a car. But, it wasn't a recent injury...... she had been roaming the country side for quite a while in pain. Jasmine is all of 4 months. Jasmine was brought to animal shelter where she was treated for pain and xrayed. After the 3 day holding time, she was released to Rosie Animal Adoption. Our fist thought was: Jasmine deserves four feet to walk on but after an attempt at DMV, Dorval to surgically fix her leg, her injuries were too serious - her leg needed to be amputated..... She had not been using the back leg already so it wasn't hard for her to learn to walk on 3 legs. She is on cage for the next 2 weeks and then will be available for foster to adopt. We offer foster to adopt when a dog is not spayed or neutered. Once the dog is spayed or neutered, we fill out an adoption agreement. Jasmine has received her first vaccine and has been dewormed. All in all she is a true sweetheart! We know many supporters have already sent us donations but if you feel you can help us with Jasmine's medical bill, pls consider donating to Rosie in Jasmine's name.
