Dachshund / Mixed (long coat) : : Male (not neutered) : : Small
Hi, meet Boomer...he's the long-haired Daschund mix that's going to make your heart go pitter-patter. You see, he's really twice the cute pup package because he's bonded with his buddy Chase. They're quite the dynamic duo and they are looking for their happily ever after.
Boomer and Chase were dumped by an unknown and, thankfully, saved by a good citizen. They're currently being fostered in Wimauma, FL.
Boomer is all about backyard chases. Squirrels, birds, lizards, you name it. If there's a critter in the backyard, he's all about the hunt. But, when things are quiet, there's nothing he likes more than snuggles and belly scratches.
Boomer's still working on his basics. He's crate trained, but not potty-trained, and he's got some work to do on his manners as he likes to jump and beg for treats. He's currently working on sit/stay. Foster mom says he's very food motivated, so with a little time, effort, and patience, all of these things should come to him.
Boomer gets very nervous when he's not in the same area as his bestest buddy, Chase, that he was rescued with. They sleep together, run and chase together, and do everything together. They love their foster people, but are definitely best friends that need to stay together. Could you be their always and forever?
During their vet visit, it was discovered Boomer and Chase are unfortunately Heartworm Positive. This is a very treatable condition and a treatment plan is currently underway.
