I’m Shady and I love people. Short, Tall, I love them all! I will give you kisses until you tell me to stop. I just want to show you how much I adore you. I want so badly to be connected to someone who can be my forever family and not have to be worried if I'm going to lose my home. Although I love being a beloved indoor member of the family, I do like to hang outdoors periodically too. I could just lay back and sun myself for a few hours and I'd be totally happy. I'm just trying to work on my tan. While we spend time outside together, let's go on a few walks. I walk nicely on a leash and so our walks will be relaxing and peaceful. I know how important that is to you after a long day.
Don't want to go on a walk? Let's just play! I love to play and can run around and chase you for quite some time. I'd also like for us to have some toys to play with. It will help keep me busy and entertained. On a hot and sunny day, I like to romp around in a kiddie pool or play with the hose. It cools me down and boy, it is a blast!
I have spent time around lots of kids of various ages and have done well with all but they're pretty dog savvy and understand I can be a little clumsy.
I am crate trained and will go in happily for a yummy treat. I am housetrained for the most part, but I forget to tell you I need to go sometimes. As long as you let me out every 4 hours and keep me on a schedule, I won't have accidents. I just have to be reminded.
I'm ready to find that family I can count on to help me excel and that I can depend on to keep me for the rest of my life. If you are going to be that exceptional family, go to http://www.nwboxerrescue.org/#!adoption-form/c1dw9 and get the ball rolling!
