I am 2 years old. I AM IN FOSTER CARE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MEET ME, PLEASE CALL THE SHELTER TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT. Hi I am Bucky, and I am just over a year old now. I am a boxer mix weighing in at around 45 pounds. I had a bit of rough start so right now I am in foster care where my friend Jesse is teaching me how to act like a good dog. I was a bit undersocialized, so I get scared in unfamiliar situations. It may take me a while to open up to you so I need to find a home with someone who is very patient, very loving, and has at least one other dog that can continue to teach me the ropes. I do not like to go on leash walks, although my foster mom keeps trying to get me out there. I need to be in a home with a fenced in yard, I feel secure and safe and love to be chased around by other dogs... at least until I get better at leash walks, but that may take a long time. I am working very hard on my housebreaking. The only time I go in the house I use a special piddle pad so it is very easy to clean up. I am very fond of routines and once we figure one out, I will progress very quickly. I am surprisingly good in the bath tub. Every now and then I like to play until I get a little dirty, but I will let you clean me and brush me. As scared as I can get I have never once shown any signs of aggression. I like to learn by watching, and I am almost always paying attention to what the other dogs are doing. I even like to play with the cats once in a while, I am really good with them. I will even let small children pet me, as long as I am familiar with them and they dont scare me. My foster mom is so proud of the progress that I have made in the last few months. One morning I surprised her by crawling into bed in the morning and snuggling with her... and I have done so every morning since. One of my favorite routines! I know that if you show me enough love, support, and patience then one day I will open up to you too... I have so much love to give! All dogs are microchipped, neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm tested and started on Heartgard Plus & Frontline Plus.
