Boomer The Dog is an artist and fursuiter living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His fursona is a Berger des Pyrénées dog. His fursuit is made of shredded paper.

Boomer The Dog appeared in a segment of the episode Animal Obsessed on the television talk show Dr. Phil, on March 25, 2014, where he explained "he believes he’s half dog and half human", and that "he dresses in a sheepdog costume, eats dog food, carries a squeaky toy, sleeps in a dog house and loves to play with 'other dogs' at the park."
||I feel really comfortable with everything that I am,... If I couldn’t be a dog, I’d feel like just an empty shell."
In 2016, Boomer was featured in the documentary Fursonas.
