Fostered in Columbia Falls, Montana
Hi friends! My name is Degan and I might be the most fun dog you have ever met. Because I am young, I’m still small, but what I lack in size I make up for in fun. My dream home is one with lots of toys; hopefully ropes, balls, bones, and stuffed things to rip apart. I’ve been on my best behavior and haven’t touched a single thing in my foster home that wasn’t mine - only my toys. I have no problem going into the crate and my foster parents have started trusting me at home alone not in the crate for short periods. It took me a few short days to get the hang of that doggy door but now I’m a pro and go potty outside by myself.
Do you like to run? Hike? Bike? Swim? Because I love all those things. Somedays I’m better on a leash than others but maybe if my foster mom would stop trying to slow me down then we’d do better. I like it on the days she takes me for a 3 mile run and I’d be a really good running buddy for someone. I LOVE the water. I hear this is a strange thing for my boxer breed but I just can’t help it. I love to play in streams, rivers, and lakes. I might even jump in the shower with you, if you don’t mind.
I'm a little slow with intros to new people but have liked all of the ones I have met. I like the other dogs I’ve met and currently live with in my foster home but they are pretty dull and old. They don’t play with me so I play by myself. My foster sister likes to wrestle but I’m not really sure how to do that so I just do my own thing. I start off slow with other dogs but haven’t had any problems.
I tried a few homes when I was in the shelter but they were short stays. I don’t know what they expected from a bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy fun fun fun fun FUN guy like myself. I like kids, especially ones who like tug-of-war but as a fair warning: I’ll probably knock over the smaller ones. I don’t mind being poked, petted, and pulled on. Although I’m on the move a lot, I am a pro at my commands even without a treat. I know how to sit, shake, down, roll over and occasionally listen to the ‘off’ command.
I’m just a happy little guy looking for a fun and active family with room to play. If you feel you can give me the right home, please head over tonwboxerrescue.org/#!adoption-form/c1dw9 and start the application process. I'm ready to start my new adventures!
