CHAMPY here and I'm a 1 1/2 year old boxer boy. My hoomans have had me since I was a puppy. But, there have been changes and they just do not have enough time to keep up with me and all of my needs, so they are working with Houston Boxer Rescue to find me a new home of hoomans.
As for me, I'm your typical boxer boy. I LOVE to play with balls, and toys, and go for rides in the car and be with my hoomans. I get along with other dogs, but have not met a cat. I like to chase squirrels...ALOT, so we will guess that i am not going to do well with cats. I'm potty trained and have good manners, so as you can see all I need is YOU!
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!
As a young Boxer boy, I will have all of the Boxer traits. I will have a handsome square jaw and a general hunk with a great sense of humor and undying sweetness. Until we are 3, many of us Boxers are a bit silly as we love to play and joke around. Therefore, we are the dog breed that has the longest time in what we think of as puppyhood.
I will need exercise every day. So, take me for a walk or a run or throw that ball and once I have done my exercise, I'll be ready to sit back and relax and watch you cook dinner, clean the house, or pay the bills.
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.
