Facts about Sterling

  • Breed: Boxer
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
This flashy fawn boy with a big, huggable head is Sterling. He’s about 4 years old with a docked tail and floppy ears. He’s a healthy boy even though he is heartworm positive, but treatment is always addressed with the furever family.

Sterling is good with big and small dogs and has done well with kids even though he does not live with them currently. We don’t know how he does with cats. He’s a good walker and an excellent snuggler. He is housetrained and is gradually warming up to his crate. He likes his toys and can entertain himself for some time but he gets bored when he’s left alone for extended periods. That spells trouble for inquisitive Boxers, so he’d do best with a fur buddy or someone who is not gone for extended periods.
