EVELYN here and I'm a 2 year old boxer girl. I have to tell you, I have had a hard life up until now. I was found wandering the back country roads West of Houston and a very nice lady took me in and contacted Boxer Rescue to help me get adopted. Now, I have never really been inside a house and I have to tell you, this is a nice gig. It is nice and cool in here and I get food, water, and a very nice comfy bed. They also have this thing called a couch and they let me get up there and cuddle with them while they watch TV.
As a young boxer, I will have all of the KEY boxer traits of being fun-loving, bright, and active. As Boxers, we were the first dogs trained in Germany to be police dogs, so we are used to working. What that means is that I need exercise every single day. Take me for a walk or play frisbee or throw the ball for me and then I'll be ready to hang out with my humans for the rest of the day.
YES, we Boxers love humans. As Boxers, one of our key needs is to be with our humans and get our loves and affection. This makes our whole body happy and we wiggle and twist, which is often referred to as the Boxer peanut move!
Remember, we Boxers are strong, quick, and busy. We are always on the move and eternally curious. We need plenty of exercise and we enjoy mental challenges…like how to open a door when you are not home, or how to find the last piece of dogfood that slide under the refrigerator!
I will be a great companion as long as you provide me with the exercise and mental stimulation that I need each day.
If you are looking for an emotionally secure, mutually satisfying, low maintenance relationship then I am the girl for you. I've got the whole package - smart, furry, four legs, love to learn and live to please. Go ahead, teach me anything. Boxers are very smart and love to learn.
Stay tuned for more information about me or if it is LOVE at first sight, please complete an application for ME! I will love you more than you can imagine.
