Additional Details:

Boomer is a brindle boy that raced at 72lbs. His sire is TNT Star Wars and his dam is Speedy Petal. He only raced 18 races at Southland in Arkansas and broke his hock October 3 of 2013, back when he was only 2. The break was splinted there by a vet and he was sent to us for rehab. Our vets also checked his leg and agreed that he would heal up fine in a splint and the break wouldn't require surgery. Boomer's break healed up nicely and he was adopted in December of 2013. He was recently returned to us because of financial problems that made a move in with relatives necessary. His old injury was causing him trouble on the many stairs in the new house too. Our vet has checked out Boomer's leg again and it looks fine and the old break is still strong, although he does favor it just a little. Boomer likes to go on short walks and is great on leash. He can run around and do whatever he feels like doing, but probably wouldn't enjoy long hikes or jogs due to the old injury. Boomer will turn 6 on August 11th. He is a sweet, very calm boy that is very good and already home acclimated. He is pretty friendly now, although he was shy and a bit overwhelmed when he was with us as a younger dog. He is very lazy and is happy to just have a soft dog bed to lay on. He isn't a dog that follows you or bothers you for attention. Boomer potties nicely on leash so may not need a fenced yard. He is a gorgeous, brindle boy that has golden eyes. Boomer has lived with cats and small dogs in his previous home. When Boomer was first with us he loved his crate and was very quiet in it while he was on crate rest for the broken leg. He was so quiet in his crate we felt he may be a great apartment dog. He has cried some in his crate since he came back to us so the jury is still out on if that would still be true. He would probably not be able to do a lot of stairs and would at least need an apartment on the ground floor. So far Boomer has been very laid back in his foster home. He hasn't tried to initiate play with the other dogs and just prefers to nap and relax most of the time. He would be perfect for someone that didn't have much time or energy for walking and exercising dogs.
