Special Criteria
Sanctuary Visit Required

Boxer's name fits him because his favorite thing to do is to shred cardboard boxes. He is one of those dogs who is always happy. Boxer loves going for walks and is very polite on the trail. He meets people easily at the Sanctuary and is a sweet, loving boy. When in a home, Boxer loves his people so much that he sometimes guards them from other people and dogs. While he does not have this issue here at the Sanctuary, he will sometimes guard food and toys. This is easily managed by offering him trades of other foods or items. Thunderstorms often make Boxer uncomfortable and nervous, so it is best to give him his space during storms.Born in 2011, Boxer takes prescription medication. He is currently on a regular diet mixed in with a weight management regimen, but that is not necessarily required for a home environment. With doggie friends, he is picky and prefers females. At Dogtown, Boxer is working on meeting new people and on being comfortable in groups of people; the goal is to decrease the likelihood of him guarding his friends. All he wants is to have his own person that he can love all day, every day. Could that be you?
