I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with cats.
Meet Manix, a 3 year old male that is being surrendered to rescue as he needs training and his current owners do not have the time to work with him on this. Manix is a bit anxious and can sometimes be reactive when meeting other dogs and people. He has not bitten anyone and he doesn’t lunge at people or dogs in an aggressive way, he just gets anxious. Manix lives with a female Boxer and gets along with her nicely. Manix is very food motivated which will be helpful with his training. Manix will need to go to a training class that uses positive training methods. He knows some basic commands. He is also living with a 7 year old child and does well around her however because we don’t know him that well, we’ll be looking to place him in a home with older children (12+). Also, he has no history with cats so we’ll want to place him in a home without cats.
Manix is crate trained and pulls when he walks as he is currently not walked much at all. The current owners have not socialized Manix much because of his “reactiveness”. We’ll need a strong leader that is dog savvy to take Manix in and help him, through positive methods, to become a better mannered Boxer. Overall, Manix is a sweet, loveable boy that just needs a home that is willing to make the commitment and work with him.
