Atari is way more fun than any video game. He will get you out walking or running every day and head will turn. He is a classic handsome brindle Boxer boy. He was found as a stray running the streets and taken to Coachella shelter where no one came to claim him. He is pretty mellow and is not reactive to dogs nearby. He would be best as the only dog in an adult only home. He is great on leash and looks to handler for recognition. In the right hands Atari will be a dream dog for a Boxer experienced home that understands Boxers and can handle a big guy like Atari.
