Boomer of the Vermilon River-Post to Pet Pride.
Boom was a rescue dog. He had been bought by a couple who divorced and gave him to their parents who chained him out back. He was picked up by the SPCA,where the breeder reclaimed him. She could not put him back in the kennel because he would have had to fight his way through the pack to earn a spot. A responsible breeder she had other dogs like him, and kept them to-gether. I had lost a dog and she wanted to give me one, and I ended up with Boom. He was about 14 months old. Shortly after I had a terrible accident and broke my hip, shoulder, and almost my jaw. In short Boom's lifestyle was in danger again.A friend took him and trained him to the haltie leash which Boomer took to, and Boomer began to work with me after a brief discussion he and I had. In short Boomer learned to walk according to my needs and to this day, if he spots wheelchairs or canes he becomes incrediblely gentle. Now we're both retired and he loves it.
So if you can get one read up on them to see if they fit your lifestyle and you theirs.
