Kennel Dog Who Ran in Circles For Four Years Now Trains to Run Marathons With His Adopted Human

A sweet dog named Boomer, who spent four years at a Florida kennel constantly spinning in circles, found a wonderful home in Southern California with an athletic woman named Jessica. She quickly recognized Boomer’s seemingly endless energy and put it to very good use, especially while she trained for a half-marathon.

Dog who spent 4 years running in circles at the shelter finds a mom as energetic as him – now they train for marathons together and she even sneaks him into the big race to run alongside her.
