Boomer, a handsome hound at Harvest Hills

Boomer_Harvest Hills_001On my most recent trip to Harvest Hills in Fryeburg, I met Boomer, a handsome gent who was very easy to work with. Of the four dogs I photographed that day, Boomer was the most easygoing and interested in what I was doing. He’s a very amiable guy.
Boomer_Harvest Hills_002 A Red Tick hound, he’s goofy one second, handsome the next.
Boomer_Harvest Hills_003He’s willing to do whatever you want to do. Boomer_Harvest Hills_004Boomer is 10 years old and seemed quite active, very happy to be outside and enjoyed exploring the play yard. And he’s a hound, so his nose led the way.
Boomer_Harvest Hills_005This is one powerful sniffer.
Boomer_Harvest Hills_006Boomer liked attention from me and my husband, too. He was sweet and calm when he was interacting with us. Boomer won’t be placed in a home with young children, because he does get protective of his food. But he has lived with a dog before.
Boomer_Harvest Hills_010The dogs were really hot that day, so I didn’t try to get them to do too much, but Boomer had no problem when I asked him to play Superman.
Boomer_Harvest Hills_008How can you resist this face?
Boomer_Harvest Hills_009Boomer seemed like he would be a wonderful companion. He’d love to go for walks with you and just hang out with you. Please share to give Boomer a chance at finding his new, special person. This boy deserves it.

Seger, an adoptable senior at Harvest Hills

Seger_Harvest Hills_Fryeburg_001Meet Seger, a handsome, physically fit, playful fella who has been waiting at Harvest Hills for quite a while.
Seger_Harvest Hills_Fryeburg_006Seger is 11 years old. A shelter is no place for an 11 year old dog, and he is there through no fault of his own. His previous owner was moving and didn’t take Seger along. Seger is listed as a Lab/Boxer mix. He’s slim and in very good shape.
I would never have guessed he is 11. He seems like a much younger dog.
Seger_Harvest Hills_Fryeburg_007When the shelter staff went to get Seger from his kennel, they warned me that he had an ongoing feud with Oreo the cat. Seger can’t live with cats, but this one cat in particular seems to really set set him off. Sure enough, Seger walked along the aisle of kennels and when he got to Oreo’s spot Oreo started hissing at him and Seger had a similar, though dog-like, response. No cats for Seger. (And I don’t think Oreo enjoys dogs much, either). The shelter thinks Seger should be an only pet.
Seger_Harvest Hills_Fryeburg_010When Seger met me and my husband, he was immediately friendly and enjoyed attention. He was happy to be out in the play yard, and spent some time running around and exploring.
Seger_Harvest Hills_Fryeburg_004He is very food motivated. He would sit easily for a treat, but he also likes to talk to you when he wants
the treat and you aren’t giving it to him yet. Seger_Harvest Hills_Fryeburg_002

Speaking of food, Seger needs a special food due to allergies to chicken and lamb. Please don’t let that stop you from considering him as a family member.
Seger_Harvest Hills_Fryeburg_008It was really, really hot that day. Hence the tongues out in most of the photos. Mine was out, too.
When I got out some prop that I wanted him to wear, I can’t remember what it was, he took one look at it and went in the other direction. He said “I’ll just stay over here till you get rid of that thing.” I don’t blame him.
Seger_Harvest Hills_Fryeburg_005I told him never mind and I put it away. Then he came back.
He loves to roll…
Ted Coastal Humane Society_0096And he loves to get belly rubs…especially at the end of a hot photo session. Seger_Harvest Hills_Fryeburg_003Please share to help Seger find the perfect home for his retirement years! The shelter environment is very stressful for him.
