Facts about Carter

  • Breed: Boxer
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Carter is a young guy, 1 to 2 years old, with a beautiful dark fawn coat and a black mask. He came to ABR after having been mauled by several dogs and is now healing nicely and just waiting for his fur to grow back in over the injuries. He’s an average size for his age, and although he is heartworm positive, he is a healthy guy. Treating heartworms, especially at his age, is not a big deal now and ABR always helps the adopting family. He is a beautiful dog with very expressive eyes.

Carter is young and was apparently not well socialized with other dogs so his interaction may not always be appropriate, but now he is in a well balanced, well managed pack he is learning very quickly and he is learning to accept correction from the other dogs. He loves toys and walks and does pretty OK on leash. He is house and crate trained although he is not a fan of getting into the crate; once there he’s fine.

He does surprisingly well with big and small dogs although he will need supervision as he catches up on social skills. Making a concerted effort to continue his socialization is very important so joining a stable pack or doggie daycare or training or all of the above will help him gain confidence and maturity. He is good with cats with minor reminders to stop staring. This beautiful young boy is a work in progress. He’s had a rough time but he’s eager to learn and eager to please.
