Jamie has been with us for three weeks now and we can tell you he is a wonderful dog. He currently lives with an older male boxer and does very well with him, but we feel he would okay as an only dog as well, if given the proper exercise. If placed as an only, Jamie would still love a play buddy, as he LOVES to play with either a canine friend or a human. Jamie is still very much puppy like, so he can be a challenge at times, he has a very bad habit of counter surfing and will get into trouble quickly if left unattended. His area must be "Jamie Proofed", including the vehicle, as Jamie has pulled a bag of items from under the front seat! He is a very curious boy that will need to be worked with on his counter surfing and curiosity. If you leave something on a table, it's fair game! glasses, drinks, dishes, etc., Jamie will tip them over almost immediately as soon as you leave the room. Jamie is very good in his crate, so when we need to leave him for a few hours, we will put a treat in his crate and he does just fine. Jamie will need a forever home that is willing to provide him with the necessary exercise a young Boxer needs and one that is willing to bring him to obedience training and work with him on counter surfing.
November 18, 2011- Jamie is now over his kennel cough. He’s a very sweet dog. He takes treats very gently and you can put your hands in his food or take his toys away from him and he does not mind. He is eating well and drinking well and his totally housebroken. He wants to play like a Boxer boy and Box and rough house. He would do well with another young dog to work off some of his playful energy. Jamie has a very high prey drive so no cats for him. We think he will do best with a fenced in yard as well because of the prey drive. If he sees a critter he gets fixated on it and wants to chase it. Jamie is a smart boy who is a little stubborn at times so he needs to be reminded who’s in charge. He’s eager to learn, walks well on a leash and knows all of his basic commands.
November 8, 2011 - Jamie has been sick since arriving at his new home. Seems he picked up kennel cough from the home he came from. He’s on medication and responding well. We’ve been working with him on obedience training, he’s doing very well. We started working with a long training leash and he’s a fast learner, but gets bored quickly. Short session’s help. He saw his first deer today and started to shake. That’s a big dog!
He is very good with toy’s and food, no problems with you touching him or removing them. In this short time that’s a great sign.
