Sad dog endures holiday season alone at shelter

Sad dog endures another holiday season alone in Ohio shelter

Update: Boomer has been adopted!

A longtime shelter dog is growing increasingly sad as he endures a second holiday season alone inside of his kennel run. On November 27, the Richland County Dog Warden’s Office and Shelter Facebook page shared the plight of Boomer, a seven-year-old dog who arrived at the shelter in October 2018.

The dog warden writes:

Our poor guy Boomer is pretty down in the dumps today 😢 This will be his second Thanksgiving without a forever family and in the kennel atmosphere. Boomer originally came in as a stray on 10/23/18, he then went to Bradford Vet Tech School for 6 months and has been back with us since July.

According to shelter staff, Boomer is already neutered and heartworm negative. They believe that he is best suited to a home without other pets, and with no young children.
