Irwin is a 8 1/2 month old Boxer mix that was originally adopted form the shelter and unfortunately had to be returned because his new owners did not have enough time to devote to a growing dog. In their care they stated that he never showed any signs of aggression towards people, children, dogs, or cats and he was housebroken and crate trained (**some training will be lost from an animal having to live in a shelter for a period of time so he would need to be worked again to reinforce his training). He is up-to-date on all of his vaccines and already neutered so he is ready to go home with you today.
