DOB: April 5th 2012 || BREED/COLORING: Boxer mix; Brown & White || SIZE: Raspberry is about 38lbs and is full grown. || HISTORY: Raspberry was originally in the hands of a trainer who had 'rescued' her, when the trainer lost their home he had taken Raspberry to the shelter and gave a fabricated story about where he had found her and why she was in the condition she was in. We rescued her from the shelter and nursed her back to health. She was emaciated to the point you could see the bones in her tail, she had been burned with cigarettes all over her backside and had pneumonia. She had been abused. || PERSONALITY: Raspberry is super sweet and a wag machine when she knows you. She is fearful of strangers and very defensive at times. || TRAINING: Raspberry does know basic commands but because she was abused she needs a strong handler. || WOULD DO BEST: Raspberry would do best in an adult-only home as an only-dog with a dog-savvy person who will work with her to address her fears. She requires a yard and would be best suited for a home has solid fencing (wood or concrete) so that she doesn't feel that she needs to defend her space (if she can't see through the fence, she won't be afraid of passers by). || CATS/DOGS/KIDS: Raspberry could be with a large breed calm male dog. She is not recommended for homes with cats, small animals or children. || VET RECORD: All of our dogs are currently vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. || AVAILABILITY: This dog is available for adoption now and is being fostered or kenneled in the San Fernando Valley area. Please email us and we will send you an adoption application.
