He is the epitome of canine friendliness.
Boomer the Pit Bull could easily be crowned as the epitome of canine friendliness. If you think that's an exaggeration, then hear this. He invited a neighborhood animal pal to spend the night at his place for a sleepover. No, this wasn't the first time he did so, and no, the possum wasn't harmed just licked all over for maybe an entire night. The dog might have been a little too welcoming. TikTok user @Nicole.rich33 shared two video clips on her TikTok account that crossed a million views. The video shows how they dealt with the big-hearted dog's slumber party guest.
The hilarious clip was captioned, "Does anyone else’s dog bring opossums in the house at night while you're sleeping? No? Just mine?" The view showed Boomer and his friend Possum sleeping like logs on the couch. The owner found them sleeping in the morning and could be heard exclaiming, "Boomer! Boomer! You can't get your friends into this house. That's the second time that he's brought a Possum in this house."
People were heard laughing and it was noticed that the possum appeared dead. Don't you worry. There was a second part to the recording and was captioned, "Part 2 of when your dog brings an opossum in the house. Luckily my son came to the rescue. Opposum was not harmed only licked to death by our pitbull all night."
We get to see that the dog wasn't in the clip and the owner's son tried moving the possum that appeared dead, with a long broomstick. He tapped on the possum and the possum went into the box kept next to the couch. As the son dragged the box out of the drawing room, the possum was awakened and looked straight into the camera. The owner validated that there was nothing to worry about and that the possum won't jump right out.
The possum was successfully and safely removed from the home. "My daughter has woken up both times screaming from finding his friends," the TikTok user shared in a comment. Hope Boomer doesn't make this a habit but people on TikTok found this entertaining. "That opossum is so confused, not sure whether to stay dead or ask for treats," commented @stephasaurusrex26.
"Lol, your dog is the white lady that finds random animals and says 'You’re coming home with me,'" joked @bubble_storm24. Seems like Boomer isn't the only one in need of friends. @rachelkelly217 shared, "My beagle brought a turkey in the house."
Pit bulls have a bad reputation for being aggressive or violent dogs. Experts, on the other hand, agree that no dog, regardless of breed, is inherently violent. Rather, how a dog is bred, raised, and trained determines whether or not it becomes violent. Thankfully, the Denver City Council has finally acknowledged that Pit Bulls are clearly quite friendly. The Council voted to lift its ban on pit bulls, which is a positive step. The ban was enacted in 1989, but in a vote of seven in favor and four against, the City Council officially recognized pit bulls as any other dog breed. The ban was repealed in favor of a new law that governs pit bull ownership.
