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 might even lay down right next to you! I just want to show you how much I adore you. I am searching for a family that will love me unconditionally and provide me with a place to call home. I do well both inside and outside. I am well behaved inside, I am a lady after all. When it is nice out I can lay back and sun myself for a few hours and be totally happy. I also love walking. I walk nicely on a leash so our walks will be relaxing and peaceful. I am the ideal dog to come home to after a long day- I’ll shower you with kisses, take you on a nice relaxing walk, and keep you company all night. I just want to surround someone with boxer love.
I may be seven years old, but I still have a lot of spunk in my step. I love to play and can run around and chase you for quite some time. I can keep myself occupied with toys, so let’s plan to have some of those around the house. Toys are great for keeping me busy and entertained. On a hot, 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! Have you ever seen a boxer play in the water? It’ll bring an instant smile to your face! Do you want to take me somewhere with you? Great! I ride nicely in the car. I also know some basic obedience skills. And I am certain you can teach old dogs new tricks, especially me!
Although I love people, I forget how big I am sometimes. For that reason I would do best in a home without small children. As for crate training I'll resist before I go into the crate, but once in there, I accept defeat and behave myself. I don’t need to sleep in the crate at night, but do keep your ears peeled if I start rustling- I may need to go out. I am house trained for the most part, but I forget to tell you I need to go sometimes. As long as you let me out every 4-ish hours we will be great together. A home that provides me with schedule and structure will be the most successful relationship for me.
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!
