All About Boomer

Meet the adorable 12 month old Boomer!  This young fella' is full of beans the way only an adolescent male Newf can be!  He is also very intelligent, responsive to direction, and a quick learner -- a diamond in the rough.  He's looking for a family who will put some time and attention into continuing on with his training to help him become a well mannered adult.


Boomer was surrendered when his owners felt that his training needs were beyond what they could manage.  He was playing roughly with their other pets, jumping up, counter surfing, barking, and generally being a total hooligan.  Oh Boomer!  It was pretty clear that Boomer needed some training, structure, socialization and manners, and that is exactly what he's been getting from his awesome foster parents. He's doing great!  Much better.  Way to go Booms!


Boomer thrives in a calm, structured environment where his exercise, socialization and training needs are met.   Once Boomer has his playtime outside (he needs a LOT of exercise), he is quiet and well behaved indoors.  He loves he relax near to his humans, or play with his toys.  He also loves playing with other playful dogs who are well mannered. 


Boomer enjoys a good game of fetch, loves working on obedience, and is eager to please. Atta boy Boomer!   He loves the water, so swimming opportunities would suit him very well.

Boomer walks well on a leash and is bright and quick to learn. He responds well to positive training techniques.  Working one-on-one with a handler, Boomer is focused and follows direction well.  This boy loves to work, enjoys attending classes, and with a competent handler at his side he excels.

He is full of love and kisses for his owners, and very polite and friendly meeting new people too.

Boomer is reliably house trained, as well as crate trained.



When meeting new dogs, or encountering dogs while out for a walk, Boomer needs to be reminded of his manners.  He tends to bark and get worked up. Once he is familiar with a dog he is playful and wants to romp and play.  His play style is rough and tumble, so Boomer would not be a great fit with senior dogs, or dogs that have no interest in playing.

Do you have enough toys yet, Boomer?  :)
Boomer would benefit greatly from joining a home with another well mannered dog. This dog would need to be playful and tolerant of a boisterous puppy, but calm and non-reactive to help Boomer with his social skills.

Can you spot Boomer?  What a good boy! 
His foster family have him enrolled in classes to work on his doggie social skills and manners.  He's doing very well!  An adoptive family that is willing to continue taking him to training classes will be the best fit for Boomer.  He is not suited to a first time dog owner.

Due to his training needs, and puppy energy, he is not suited to a home with young children, or frail individuals who may be injured by a boisterous pup.

Applications are now being accepted for Boomer.

Boomer is being fostered in Port Perry, ON; his approved adopters will be required to pick him up in person.  An adoption donation of $500 will apply, plus a refundable $250 neuter-security deposit which will be reimbursed once he is neutered at the appropriate age (24 months of age for a giant breed male) as per our spay/neuter contract.
