Pet of the Week: Boomer

What a face! Boomer is an adorable, black-and-brown, rottweiler-shepherd mix. He’s a gentle puppy who’s eager to make friends and seems to be good with other dogs. Boomer is about 6 months old and currently weighs 32 pounds. He should weigh about 50-60 pounds when full grown.

Boomer and many other dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are available for adoption from Dallas Animal Services, 1818 N. Westmoreland at I-30, just minutes west of Downtown Dallas. The shelter is open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and Sundays noon-5 p.m. The cost to adopt is $85 for dogs and $55 for cats and includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and more. All dogs are negative for heartworms, and cats have been tested for FeLV and FIV. For more information, visit DallasAnimalServices.org or call 214-671-0249.
