Over Size WL GSD, 116lbs, no idea at the time. Too big to do the work ...but asking people not to pet him, was not really a problem. He never acted like a fool to anyone, just stood behind me (I stepped in front of him if someone seemed interested) and people kept a "respect" distance away and admired him. Kinda like me with the K9's at the substation up the street.

He's a "Wobble" dog so he garners a lot of attention on walks. He would have made a wonderful therapy dog ...except he doesn't particularly care for people and stuff. So safe in public is good enough.

I think that's the first picture I've seen of him. ****...he's gorgeous! Look at all that red. Does that come down thru Dante or Anita? Seger has a lot of red in him too but nothing as rich as Boomer's coat.

MAW, Thanks!

Chip, interesting, seems like you have him figured out.

Jax08, you've never seen any Boomer pics?

Let's see if I have any on this computer:

Jim, as you know I prepared a dog for a NJ dept that has many apprehensions and finds and just got a big heroin bust last week in hidden compartment of car. I really had a lot of angst in letting this dog go because he could have been super sport or police dog. But what pushed me over the edge was the handler/trainer he was going to was cut out of the same cloth as you. He loved to train and he especially liked tracking and nose work. You remind me of him so much. Your dog is very fortunate to have you as was Boomer.

You can look under Canine Boomer there are a few pics there. I also posted some above, probably at the same time that you were posting.
