About Boomer

1 to 2 Years


Boomer loves a good play with his human companions and his favourite toy is a squeaky toy. Once he knows and trusts you, he enjoys a fuss and his affectionate side shines. Boomer is an intelligent boy who loves treats which is ideal for him to learn new things. He is nervous of new situations and is slowly gaining confidence in the real-life-room, getting used to household sights and sounds. Boomer loves a good puzzle toy and a nice comfy bed. Boomer likes nice quiet walks without too much going on, he is worried by other dogs but can walk alongside them with gradual introductions.

Type of home needed

Boomer would like a quiet lifestyle that is going to enrich him with all life's fabulous things: nice quiet walks, food puzzles and plenty of tasty treats. Talking of treats, if he does smell something snack-like he will happily help himself so keep food out of his reach! Not much is known about his history (he was found as a stray). He will need confidence building with lots of praise, encouragement and treat rewards. Boomer will need a home in a quiet location with access to quiet walks. Adopters will need to visit the centre several times so that Boomer can spend time bonding with them before he goes home.

More about me

Boomer would like to be the only pet in the home and could share his home with children aged 14 and above.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Boomer, who is based at Ilfracombe (Devon). Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £150 (£140 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees),for puppies its £150 adoption fee plus a £45 Dog School fee but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you can receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
