    Hi Cami,

    I have a friend who co-runs an all breed rescue in Columbus - Im pretty good friends with her. Do you want me to ask if they can take him?

    As luck would have it I just got a call from the intake coordinator of the rescue this morning and they *may* have an open foster home for Boomer!
    Trying to iron out some details but it sounds promising.

    Boomer is in! I am waiting on a call from the person who will be transporting him. I need to get him to her and once that happens he is heading to his foster family.
    Mother and daughter with overlapping schedules so Boomer will have someone around nearly all the time. Just like he is used to.
    He will soon get his surgery and once recovery is done he will be available to go to his forever home.
    I hope this happens in the next day or so. appicon
    It has been a long 7 months worrying about this guy.

    IT'S OFFICIAL!!

    I picked Boomer up from his owner yesterday and transported him to someone else who would be taking him the rest of the way to his foster family. She had a huge fenced in yard so we let Boomer off leash so he could have his very FIRST off leash run. To be honest he didn't know what to do!
    Eventually with a little prompting he started to explore but kept looking back at us as if to say "thanks".
    I threw a tennis ball for him and he took off running at full speed and went after it. He was so excited. appicon
    His foster family recently lost their own Boxer and aside from another foster don't have a dog of their own. There might be a chance they end up keeping him. He will be there a while for his surgery and recovery so maybe, just maybe they will get attached!
    I just want him to find love.
    I started to tear up while driving away. Hubby was with me and said "Today is the first day of the rest of his life."
    That made me feel better since I kept thinking he was being taken away from everything and everyone he knew. When I started to think about that I realized that what he knew wasn't the best situation for him and what he is going to know will leave those memories in the dust.
    Be well Boomer and here is hoping that the rest of your life is filled with Boxer burns and happiness.

    What a wonderful ending! Gave me goosebumps while reading. I hope all ends well and he gets to stay forever with his foster parents and that he gets the love he deserves and they find another one to love for the loss of theirs :)
