Facts about Mr. Pinkerton

  • Breed: Boxer
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Mr. Pinkerton is a brindle male around 6 years old. He currently lives with a female Boxer and is doing fine. He is a healthy guy although he needs to gain some weight and he is heartworm positive. Treatment for heartworms is not so difficult now and ABR always helps with it,

Mr. Pinkerton needs long, supervised introductions to other dogs, but after a couple weeks he is best friends with the female Boxer in his foster home. Mr. Pinkerton has met some kids but does not live with any. Mr. Pinkerton is well trained and knows all the basic commands. He is house and crate trained, and does well on leash until he sees another dog. Consistent redirection, support, training and confidence in his handler can resolve this issue.

Mr. Pinkerton is sweet and cuddly and wants to please so helping him get comfortable just takes time and consistent limits. He was found stray but clearly had a family before that. This guy is really handsome and really loves having a family again. Are you ready to help him settle in to your family and snuggle up?
