Hi! My name is Jake 2. I'm an almost 3 year old male Pocket Boxer. You know what that means? That I'm smaller than the usual Boxer...I only weigh about 40 lbs! And I am a sweet ball of Boxer energy! I love to go on walks. I walk great on a leash, in fact. I also like to play in the yard and being outside. I enjoy playing with toys even and I don't chew on anything that doesn't belong to me.
I am also crate trained! I will willingly go into my crate when shown which one is mine. My crate is my safe place but I can be left uncrated while your gone. You can leave the door open so I can go relax in there while you're out. Even though I like my crate, I really like being able to sleep in the bed with my family. I don't take up much room. I LOVE to cuddle and snuggle, especially under the blankets.
I am a great kisser and snuggler, too. I will even take a nap with you. More snuggling! I like to ride in the car so you can take me along for the ride and I will be a perfect gentleman.
Have I mentioned that I have never had a potty accident in the house?! I'll alert you when I need to go. I'm such a good boy!
I eat dry kibble with some chicken broth and I always eat all my food. I eat a cup and a half twice daily. I even get treats and bones. I love bones! I get a new bone twice a week and chew on them for days.
I get along okay only with submissive older female dogs. I do better with them because I tend to like to think I am the boss. I don't currently live with a cat so I don't really know how I feel about them. Usually, my rescue errs on the side of caution because Boxers can be a little cat crazy. So, a home without a cat is probably best for me.
I am also a really good watch dog. I only bark when strangers come around. You'll know when new folks are coming around, but I will greet welcome guests with all the love a Boxer can give. I like everyone I meet. I like men but love women. I'm a mama's boy, they tell me. I'm also great with children. I've been around kids as young as six and have nothing but happy wiggles for them. You can count on those wiggles and kisses whenever you come home, too!
