Hi, hiya, howdy. My name is CLEO and here is a little info about me:Breed: Boxer/Am Bulldog mixAge: 2 yrsGender: femaleWeight: 65 lbsHeight: 22 inchesHighlight(s): energetic, sweet, well tempered, smart
It's the Boxer bounce. Boing, boing. Bouncy trouncey, like Tigger. Ok, ok, probably not that bouncey, but I am a lively girl, as most of us Boxer types are. I'm really a lovely, friendly gal.My current adopters were looking for another Boxer dog after losing theirs a few months ago. Unfortunately, the people who gave me to them misrepresented my energy level. Instead of being calm, I'm energetic and my current people are in their 80s. So they really want me to go to a home that's appropriate for me.I am a sweet pup who just needs some exercise. I do walk on leash, but pull some, especially when I get excited, like when seeing a squirrel. I haven't been around cats, but probably best no kitties in the home, given how I react to squirrels.I have been with my current owners for about 6 weeks. I have not interacted with any dogs in that time. I will bark at the doorbell or if I see a person or dog outside. Excitement stuff really, I am quite trainable with patience.I like being made a fuss over and getting & giving affection. I ride well in the car too. If I could find someone who has the ability to manage my strength and willing to train me, I will be just an amazing dog. I respond well to learning. I enjoy engaging my mind. I am crate trained for night time, though haven't had need of using it. I'd love a home where we could have some adventures by day and snuggles by night.
Energy Level: high
I get along with:Dogs: unknownCats: unknown, though probably unlikelyKids: unknown
Fears: None observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition.
Training: crate trained, sometimes need cookie lure to go in.Leash skills: Some. Please be prepared to continue training.House trained: Yes. Be prepared to help me learn the routine of where to go in my new home.
Health notes:I have been spayed/neutered & vaccinated. Uncertain yet if microchipped.
My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.
Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.Information included in the profile is provided to us from the international rescuer or local fosters. LALDR does not have access to overseas dogs and cannot always verify the accuracy of their descriptions. Every dog is an individual and can act differently in different situations based on the person adopting them and the environment in which they live.
Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives. Although a 1-on-1 trainer is often not needed, it is good to have someone in mind in case any problematic behaviours arise. Most bad behaviours can be modified if caught early enough, so make sure to nip undesirable behaviours in the bud before they become serious problems.Basic training should be taken seriously, but should not begin until your dog is well settled in - at least a couple of weeks. After you feel your new dog is relaxed and comfortable in their new home, check out training courses in your local area. Even basic beginner courses like those taught at a local pet store can have a huge benefit in helping your dog learn to socialize and get used to being in public situations, all with the added benefit of strengthening their bond with you.
While most dogs find escorting passengers flying directly to Vancouver, some will find flights through Toronto or Montreal. In that case, additional fees will apply to fly your dog to Vancouver by cargo. Unaccompanied cargo costs within Canada range from $350 - $550 depending on the size of the dog. LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs.
The age and breed of a dog is usually an educated guess, so we are not able to guarantee the accuracy of age or breed of our dogs.
Normally, we will not approve adoptions to homes with children under 12 years of age. However if a dog has been determined to be good with children we will approve applicants with children 8 years or older. More information can be found on our website.
