"Boomer has really great manners and his recall when off leash is pretty good too. He's learning how to play soccer and kick the ball with his paws. He's still aware of objects with wheels but doesn't freak out like he used to. He's made a lot of progress."

"Boomer has grown exceptionally. We're through all of his cues, his ability to grow out of some of his fears from noise carts and anything with wheels. He is a great dog and from my personal opinion, he is ready for adoption. He has excellent manners and responds well to his name. He also has impressive agility skills."

"I worked with Boomer on his noise reaction this week. He's very reactive to carts so we walked around a cart at first. Once he was willing to do that, we walked next to it while I pushed it. We did this for about 10 minutes at a time for twice a day. He is very untrusting of the cart still, but he's not as vocal when he hears one. Boomer would be great for an active family."

"Boomer is a very energetic dog, but he's getting better at calming down quickly. He will sit on command, along with going "down" and giving you his paw when you ask for it. He is a very good dog. Boomer has mastered all of his normal cues. We're working on improving his recall. He'd be great with an active family with children."

Boomer, welcome to Roxbury! "On the first day with Boomer, he was always on alert. He was nervous and fearful because of the new environment. He was more comfortable the second day. Boomer is dog friendly and allows you to take a bone from him when he is chewing on it. He loves to play with frisbees and he's good at agility. He's very playful and shows love when you give him attention. He would be a great addition for an active family and would like to have another dog to live with."
