Plenty of Pets

Boomer is a four month old boy who is up to date on vaccines, is house trained and sleeps through the night. He is still a pup and is learning what is okay to chew and what should be left alone. He also needs a little work with things like walking on leash and learning that fingers aren’t toys.

Boomer is going to be quite a big boy; possibly around 75 pounds.

His new family will be required to take obedience classes with him.
