Tinsel came to us on December 24, 2011 when she was just 1 year old. She had never met strangers and was lunging and barking at the shelter staff. They were afraid she was going to bite and called us to rescue her before they euthanized her.
Tinsel is a very special boxer She loves ALL other dogs. However, she is VERY nervous around strangers. Tinsel has never bit, but she does growl, snap and lunge at people she doesn’t know – including visitors in the house. It takes her meeting a new person 3-5 times, and then she is comfortable After she gets to know you (after about a week) she LOVES you. Tinsel also loves teenage boys. She has bonded with several at the rescue and thinks they’re just the BEST!
Tinsel love is a very precious thing. She is very cuddly and sweet. She loves to curl up right next to you (on you, honestly) and will follow you anywhere (on or off leash).
The problem is that no one wants to take the time to get to know Tinsel. To bond with her. To love her. She is an amazing dog. She just needs and amazing owner.
If you truly want to rescue, Tinsel is waiting
