BOXERS IN NEED!
The following boxers need you. They are currently in local shelters or in homes that can no longer care for them for whatever reason. LBR has been asked to help them, but we cannot take them into our program because our foster homes are full. LBR provides all food, vetting a crate, and basic essentials like leash and collar, for each foster boxer - please help us help them!

Please note that in most cases, LBR has no other information about these boxers other than what's listed here.


There are also boxers in shelters that we do not have pictures of. We need all the help we can get at this point. If you are interested in fostering for us, please fill out our foster application by clicking here.

Other Info: ***URGENT IN A SMALL SHELTER MUST BE TAGGED BY TUESDAY 11/25*** This is a 2 year old unaltered medium sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tails. He is not deaf. Very jumpy and excited but corrected easily. She is very food motivated. She is the dominant one of the pair. She was correcting the male on more than one occasion. She would be ok with older kids. My concern is she took the treat from my hand with a fast snap. The next time I told her "easy" and she took it gently. Not aggressive, just gulped the treat. She was bossy with the male boxer, but not aggressive. She ignored the aggressive dog in the kennel we walked by. She can sit. No leashes. We were just loose in a room. No cats for testing. Slightly under weight. Came into the shelter in heat with intact male. Could possibly be in early stages of pregnancy. No heart worm testing. Very sweet happy girl. I would foster her if I could. She is gorgeous with a classic look. I think she could be adopted quickly.

Other Info: Thor is a 2 to 4 year old unaltered medium sized fawn male with natural ears and natural tail. He is not deaf. He was so incredibly sweet! Was really timid at first and had his tail tucked. After a few minutes, and going outside, he turned into a totally wiggly butt. Not jumpy. Will run with you but not AT you. Curious with people and dogs. He did GREAT with my 3 yr old. Knew how to play but not knock her down. Curious of the baby carrier and sniffed it gently. I would totally trust him with kids. Nose to nose through kennel with other dogs. No hackles, growling, etc. He didn't play bow or anything though. He was an OS with another dog . Knows sit to hand signal/command and sits on demand for treats,so definitely food motivated! Walked decent on a leash, but could use some work. He didn't potty outside that I saw, nor did he have any in his kennel (but looks like he may have had dry stool smears on his fur). Unable to cat test. Sooooooo skinny. I can't believe he was surrendered. No lumps or bumps, prob HW+ (given his general appearance) but I didn't wait for answer. Teeth have some tartar. His OS reason "unrealistic expectations" :/

Other Info: This is a 4 year old unaltered large sized brindle male with natural ears and docked tail. He is not deaf. He is happy, friendly, super sweet and just wants to be a lap dog. I had to invite him to jump up for a hug, he was very well mannered and gentle. When you get down on his level he wants to get close to your face for a good inspection. I think he would do well with dog savvy kids of any age and if they're not dog savvy maybe over the age of 2ish. He is on the larger size. He was non-reactive to the other very loud dogs barking in the kennel area. He just wanted me to keep him safe. He had no interest in the other dogs as we walked by all of the kennels. He walked PERFECT on his leash, waited for me to go through the doorway before him. He didn't sit or do any other tricks I tried but I think he was just unsure of what was going on. His kennel was very clean, the shelter workers think he's house trained because he never goes potty in his kennel. We went into the office area and there were about 3-4 cats visible to him; on the floor, on the desk, in the window, walking right past him. Kittens meowing in the other room and he did well. One cat hissed at him and he jumped back. His back end trembled a bit and he hid behind my legs. He was interested in them but I think more trying to understand what they were. He gave a good stare but we could easily break his attention. No lumps or bumps and overall he looked to be a healthy weight; well groomed, good nails. His teeth had some tarter and unknown on HW status. The left side of his face looks 'chewed up', patchy hairless sections with somewhat fresh scabs. His left eye is cloudy/discolored and he might have some vision loss. When I approached him from the left he almost overcompensates with his right side. GORGEOUS BOY! His soft brindle coat has deep reds and golds with a beautiful black mask with a tiny flash down the center of his snout. He's probably around 70lbs and could put on a little more weight. Overall he is a sweetheart and ready to be out of the shelter. The shelter is really hoping we can find room for him, they've grown attached and want the very best for him and know LBR can do that!

Sex: Male

Is s/he safe from euthanasia?: No

Other Info: This is a 5 year old unaltered small fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. he is not deaf. This is Brodie, who is believed to have come into the shelter by owner surrender with his Mother Stormy (BIN 14719). Shelter guessed that Brodie was Stormy's son. Brodie is a very small male Boxer who is just a sweet as Stormy. Very comfortable with himself, laid back, and extremely gentle. He worked his way into my lap for pets and hugs. Many children were in and out today and he was greeted and admired by all. Very sweet. I see no issues. Little reaction walking through the kennels. More concerned with following direction and getting away from all the noise. Very loving and well mannered. He sat on command, but due to many in the shelter today, I could not get to much one on one time. Due to age and calmness I am sure he has learned a few things. He did not pull on leash, but was very interested in everyone with wagging tail. No reaction to cat test, he wanted to leave back out to the lobby. Broadie had a scab on his ear in the same place the other Boxer Stormy had on her ear, just one ear. Looks like fly strike, but all other parts of body were in good shape. Brodie looked good weight for his size. He also has been an outdoor pet. Again ... Beautiful Boxer! Brodie and Stormy are both up for adoption at this time. Owners have changed jobs and can no longer care for both boxers.

Other Info: Bo is medium sized unaltered fawn male with natural ears and docked tail. He is not deaf. He looked 5 to 6 years old. The shelter has him listed as 8. Bo has been at the shelter for over a month. This is his 4th time there by no fault of his own. He continued to get out of the yard from the previous owners home, and this time, they refused to come back and get him. I would suggest that there was some boredom on his part, and he just wanted to be near someone or something. Bo is a very happy boy. He was brought out into a large room for me to eval and was super wiggly. I had my two children there during the eval, 2 years and 12 years old. He did great with both of my children. He did not jump or act overly excited around the baby and used caution when running around the little people. Shelter staff stated that he hasn't had any problems with other dogs. While trying to eval, there was a very yappy dog and Bo ignored him. He was happy to be out with people. Bo would not demonstrate any commands for me, but he did love the treats. Cat test unavailable. Bo is emaciated. I could not feel any lumps or bumps on him. His teeth could use a good cleaning, and he definitely needs some groceries. HW status is unknown. According to the shelter staff, the prior owner stated that they took him to the vet for being so thin and stated that they fed him regularly. However, it should be noted that during the eval we did a food test with him. The shelter staff brought out a bowl of food, and he ate it during the eval. Being as happy as he was to see people, he was happier with the food so I sense that some good groceries will get him back to a healthy weight.

Other Info: This sweet boy was so sad. :( He is a gorgeous fawn with a black mask. is around 3 years old and weighs approximately 65-70pounds of pure muscle. He was adopted from the shelter to a home with 10 other dogs and was returned because the other dogs picked on him. He has many bite marks, scratches and a large lump on his hind right leg. They had him with another male dog and he did great. Did not react to the barking dogs. No cat test was done. He walked well on a leash, did not seem to know any commands. He is so sad, he wouldn't even take a hot dog. He was shaking when I first got him out and after a lot of petting and sweet talking all he wanted to do was lean on me. A few minutes later, put his head on my shoulder and I even got a sweet kiss. He looked so defeated. This big boy needs his boxer spirit back.

Other Info: This is a 6 year old small sized unaltered fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. This is Stormy. Said to be 6 yrs old. I first thought she was a very young girl due to size. Teeth showed tater in the back. So could be. She was owner surrendered with who we believe to be her son Brodie (BIN 14726). She is tiny, has been an outdoor pet who is very thin and needs food. She is gentle, laid back, and cuddles up next to me. Very sweet. These two together are adorable. Wonderful with everyone. not jumpy at all, no pulling and seemed very happy and content. No reaction towards many animals barking and jumping. She minded very well. No signs of fear or aggression in any way. A love bug. Sits on command but was more comfortable standing. No other commands stressed. Lots of people in and out today. No reaction to cats, just stood and looked around. She was more interested in people walking past. She's been an outside pet. thin, and recent signs of puppies. Obvious she had been used for breeding. Stormy has a matching scab on her ear, in the same place as the male Boxer that came in with her. looks like bad fly strike, but not on any other part of body. 1 small lump on back leg under skin, a knot. Probably due to age, nothing major, very small, long existing. Fur looks good. everything else looks good. Beautiful little Boxer! Stormy and Brodie are both up for adoption at this time at the shelter. Shelter states they have already had lookers.

Sex: Male

Is s/he safe from euthanasia?: No

Other Info: This is an unaltered medium sized 2 year old flashy brindle male with natural ears and natural tail. He is not deaf. This boy and his brother, BIN 14712, were brought in as strays. This boy is on the smaller side, slim, looks young but not a puppy. He was not very interested in me to begin with, but after smelling around he came over for some loving. He even gave sweet kisses. He let me feel all over and just wanted to be petted. And he has the cutest little monkey that curls up over his back. He was not jumpy, skittish or large. So I think he would be fine with young dog savvy kids. He was brought in with his brother, however, the good Samaritan that found them said they had a fight so they were separated at the shelter. He wagged his tail at the dogs we saw outside. And when walking through the kennel area he did not react to the barking and dogs lunging at the kennel doors. He did not know any commands and did pull on the leash. Did not cat test. No obvious lumps, bumps or missing hair. Had dew claws. Nails a good length. Ears and teeth clean. Not overly dirty.

Other Info: *Update 11/12: Owner's travel schedule for work has increased significantly and she is in jeopardy of going to the shelter.* Sissy is a 10 year old unaltered fawn female with natural ears and a natural tail. She is being surrendered because her owner travels too much. She is crated while he is gone, 8 to 10 hours. She does great with all people and kids. Owner has a young son. Dog friendly with all dogs per owner. She is house and crate trained, in a wire crate. Sissy does well with bathing, vet does nail trims. She walks and runs outside for exercise, but she sleeps most of the day. She likes to just lay around per the owner, she seemed excited and playful when I met her. She is not possessive with her toys. She eats dry pedigree healthy longevity. She knows sit, stay, come, shake. She pulls some while leash walking (owner uses pronged collar). Doesn't really misbehave, owner says he uses verbal corrections. Sissy would have no reaction if owner or stranger or even another dog tried to take away her food bowl or a rawhide. She barks sometimes at people outside. She is up to date on vaccinations as of 07/14. She is on the injection heart worm prevention, given to her by the vet, owner said he had never given it to her. Sissy had one small skin tag on I believe the right side. Also has a small bump on front right leg close to paw that I think needs to be looked at. One of the nipples near tail end of the dog had what looked like it had a swollen mass underneath it, pretty decent sized. She is a very sweet dog and knew sit and shake and down. She just wanted to love on me and get attention. Her coat was very soft! There is nothing that makes her act differently than normal and she has no know illnesses or injuries.

Other Info: Diesel is a 9 year old large neutered brindle male with natural ears and docked tail. The owner is surrendering him because her father has just been admitted into hospice care for a terminal illness. They have 3 dogs (Diesel and 2 females) and she will not be able to care for all of them by herself. The dogs have been in a few altercations, none of which required a vet visit. However, because of this they are practicing separation. He is given free rein in certain areas of the house away from the other dogs when owners are home and away. He does have a crate but they do not use it other than for discipline (which is not often). He is very friendly, social, and pleasant around all adults and kids. He greeted me right away with kisses and nubby wags. He likes to investigate new people but in a social way. No red flags here. He is house and crate trained but they do not like to crate him. He loves baths. Owners said if you'd let him he would jump in the tub with you. No issues with grooming or nail trims. No structured exercise but has free rein to play and run in the backyard. For an older guy he had a lot of spunk when we brought out a ball. Typical boxer behavior. Very attentive to commands, especially when the ball was involved. He did jump a few times to get the ball from his owner, but when corrected listened upon the first command. He lay at my feet the entire visit and pawed me to pet him. Since he is older, it does not seem that he makes the first move to be active and play. He can rough play when he's really excited. No issues with toys. He eats Old Roy. No formal training, but they have definitely spent time with him to ensure he is obedient. He knows sit, stay, come, lay down, shake, and speak. He walks with you. He might pull on the leash if he sees another dog or person out of excitement. For discipline he is sent to his crate. He will let you take food, toys, rawhide, ect. away without any issues. He will beg to have them back. No issues other than what was already disclosed. I'm wondering if the fact that the owner is terminally ill caused any altercations with the dogs. Diesel is the only male dog in the house. He is a protector and likes to be aware of his surroundings, as well as others knowing he is there. He likes to do a perimeter check when outside at night. He will bark along each side of the fence to let everyone know where he is. Maybe he is just an old grump or has an underlying health issue (the lumps and bumps). (note by SC: In his photos, his coat has dark patches which reminds me of hypothyroidism.) His last vaccinations were over 3 years ago and he is not on HWP. Diesel is such a big baby! He greeted me at the door with lots of kisses and nubby wags. I sat down on the floor with him and he immediately crawled in my lap for some love. Diesel has been with his owners since he was 8 weeks old. I truly believe that if the owner's dad was not terminally ill, they would not be begging us for help. He is older, so his energy level is much more relaxed than a younger dog. He spent most of the visit at my feet and pawed at me to pet him. He does not have any issues with any other dogs upon first meeting outside the home. He is very social and wants to play. Diesel has about 4 growths on his skin that look like moles or skin tags. Two are on his chest, one on his back, and one on his right hind leg. He also has a lump on his chest that is squishy to the touch, but owners say it has gotten firmer as of lately. It's about the size of a golf ball and can be seen in the video I sent. He has not been taken to a vet to determine what any of these are. Despite the lack in vetting, this dog has been loved and cared for by his family. It sounds like they are doing the best they can right now to just get by. I would have taken him home with me if not for my alpha female! Seems to be the perfect dog for someone who is just looking for a companion that is already trained and socialized. He does not need any training and is very attentive. One of the smartest dogs I've ever been around.

Other Info: Max is a 7 year old unaltered fawn male with cropped ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered because the owner died and his widow isn't able to care for the big dogs. I think she's kind of afraid of them. During the day they have the run of the yard, at night they're closed in a large dog run with a dog house. Max is very shy and hesitant to approach strangers. He looks to Ruby for guidance and follows her lead. He wouldn't let me pet him, but he came over and sniffed me once he saw Ruby doing it. I don't think he's aggressive; he's just slow to warm up. I would say no to little kids, just because he's so cautious and children may crowd him to fast. He is not house or crate trained. The owner used to wash them and they stood still for bathing. It is unknown how he is for nail trims. His only exercise is playing with Ruby in the backyard. Max was wiggly, but shy. I didn't get to see him play, but the owner says he keeps up with Ruby. It is unknown if he is possessive with toys. He currently eats Pedigree dry and canned food mixed together. He does not have training, but he responds well to verbal correction, according to the owner. He knows "get back" and "stop". I don't think he knows any other commands. He's had never been leashed. When the owner tried to leash him he wouldn't move. he may have been taking cues from Ruby. The owners use verbal correction for discipline. Max responds well to commands like "get back" and "stop". It is unknown how Max would react if you took a food bowl or raw hide away from him. Max is pretty timid and he follows Ruby's lead. I honestly can't say how he would do without her. I think he needs more socialization and exposure to other dogs. With some socialization I think he would do well. He is not up to date on vaccinations or heart worm prevention. He's going to need a patient home that won't rush his socialization, Loud noises, sirens, loud music make scare him. He does not have any illness or injuries that the owner is aware of. They haven't been to the vet in a while. Max lives outside 100% of the time, even in inclimate weather.

Other Info: Baby Boy is a 2 to 3 year old neutered large sealed brindle male with cropped ears and a docked tail. He was found as a stray and owners found through microchip. That owner had rehomed him. Second family surrendered him because he plays rough with small children and other dogs. Also he has separation anxiety that is moderate to severe. Has gotten out of the yard and gone through a window to be with his people. Since he is living in a animal clinic, he has a sturdy crate. He is not left outside alone for any period. Owner says he does well if you have to leave him IF he is in a sturdy crate. He was very wiggly and friendly when out of the kennel. Saw people outside and showed curiosity, but was easily called away. No barking. Staff at clinic stated he was a sweet dog. He is house trained and crate trained, he can be in crate at least over night. The owner is a groomer. He is wiggly, but not hard. He is well behaved for grooming and nail trims. They let him outside several times a day. And when she can the owner lets him loose in the grooming area while she is there. But it's not the home type ideal. He is high energy. Per present owner he loves to play ball and tries to get her other dogs to play, but they snap at him. While there I watched him try to play with the other dogs...he tries to paw at them to induce play, some play bowing. But they would not play with him, just growled or snapped....the second owner said he plays kinda rough with his 8 year old, even "mouthing" his arm. Momma freaked out. THERE IS NO REPORTS OF ACTUAL BITING. He is not possessive with toys. He eats dry food science diet. He knew sit, but was very reluctant to follow commands while I was there. Present owner said he minds very well. He pulls some when on leash. He is disciplined using verbal correction. There are no problems if you try to take a raw hide or food bowl away from him. Behaviors adopters or foster homes would need to be aware of are possible digging or fence jumping and separation anxiety. He is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention as of 10/2014. His anxiety is causing him to not eat when confined. He ate fine while loose. Sniffed at a cat in its carrier. Just stepped back when the cat hissed and tried to claw him. He seemed more curious than anything. Because of his size and rough play he should not be in a home with small children unless it is a VERY dog savvy one. He would probably be very popular due to color, sex and age. He still has a lot of puppy in him. He has a lot of love to give, and just needs someone to give him stability so he will not be so anxious. He does not like to be away from his family. No illnesses or injuries the owner is aware of...he is parasite free and heartworm negative

Other Info: Ruby is a 5 year old unaltered fawn female with cropped ears (floppy) and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because the owner died and his widow isn't able to care for the big dogs. I think she's kind of afraid of them. During the day they have the run of the yard, at night they're closed in a large dog run with a dog house. Ruby is friendly with adults, she jumps up a little. She plays with the owner's grandkids, but she's a little rough for the little one. Maybe over 5. She is not house or crate trained. The husband was able to bathe them and they stood still for him. It is unknown how she is for nail trims. The only exercise is playing in the yard with Max. Ruby is moderate energy. She was excited to see me, but I don't think she's gotten a lot of affection lately. She would jump up gently and then just stand there to be petted. If I got down low enough to pet her, she didn't jump. It is unknown if she is possessive with toys. She currently eats Pedigree dry and canned food mixed together. She has no training, but she respond well to verbal correction. Ruby knows "get back" and "stop". She doesn't seem to know sit. She's never really been leashed. When the owner tried to leash her, she froze. She is disciplined using verbal correction. She's very responsive to tone and hand gestures. It is unknown how she would react if you took a food bowl or raw hide away from her. Ruby can unlatch a chain link gate latch. They have to keep gates locked. She is not up to date on vaccinations or heart worm prevention. Max is Ruby's father, so I hope she isn't pregnant. Her belly is solid, but I couldn't tell if she was pregnant. Her nipples look like she may have nursed puppies. Loud noises, sirens, loud music make her scared. She has no illnesses or injuries that the owner was aware of, but they haven't seen a vet in while. Ruby lives outside 100% of the time, she is never allowed in the house, even in inclimate weather.

She has never used a crate nor knows what it is. Owner stated that Roxie was great with bathing and grooming. She said that Roxie could go out on the boat to the lake with them and she would swim and have no problem.

Other Info: Boo is a 22 month old white unaltered female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. She is being surrendered because her owner has a small yard, no time, she is not dog friendly. She charged the neighbors Boston terrier and rat terrier and at the dog park lunged/nipped at other dogs, she did not growl. She is kept outside, and is not crate trained (she pees in crate). When in the house, she can be left to roam and has no accidents, she is house trained. She is good with people and strangers. She escapes the back yard. There were several broken fence boards where she escaped the back yard. They have 3 kids ages 1, 6, & 7 years, owner stated she was good with all of them, very protective of them. Boo allows herself to be bathed & groomed but owner stated she is very stiff. Her behavior is good when having her nails trimmed. She receives no exercise, she is left in the small backyard.

Other Info: ***Update 9/20: Owner still has her, but needs to surrender her soon. She will let us know if she goes to a shelter so we can try to help from there*** Zora is a tall 7 year old spayed sealed brindle female with natural ears and docked tail. She has a good weight on her. She is being surrendered because her owner has a 14 month old child and she does not want dog hair on the floor where the child crawls. Zora is very vigilant and protective of mom and baby when dad not home. NO aggression or protectiveness with mom. When owner is away, she is kept inside uncrated. Per family she is not destructive but will get into trash. When dad came home she was bouncy, playful, happy. I observed the baby grabbing her jowlies and Zora just ignored it. Wen we first came to the house dad was not home. Zora gave warning growls when we entered the house, but not the attack kind. She then went to the couch where the baby was sleeping and laid in front of the couch right there. Mm was on the couch by her baby and if i approached the couch I got warning growls, but no overt signs of impending attack. I was finally able to sit on the couch next to her, but not real close to the baby. She watched me very closely with ears back, but no more growling. I was able to scratch by her nub and slowly work my way up to neck and ears. She continued to watch me very closely. I DID NOT attempt to touch the child. She is house trained and crate trained. She does well for bathing and grooming, loves the water. She is good for nail trims. She gets exercise by walks, going to the dog park and playing in the back yard. Normal energy level. She is not possessive with toys. She knows the commands for high five and sit. Very little pulling per owner when walking on a leash. She is disciplined by verbal correction. Vaccinations were done in July of 2013 and she is not on heart worm prevention. Zora does not appear the stated age. She is in very good shape, well mannered and appeared just a typical boxer after dad came home. I suggest that any foster home or adoptive home with children (especially small ones) be very aware how protective she is. I do not feel that she is aggressive at other times. I feel she would be a good family member for anyone also, per the mom, this protective behavior just started when the baby was born.

Other Info: Lola is a 6 year old overweight spayed flashy fawn female Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. Owners adopted Lola and a male Pit mix about 8 months ago. Lola recently started showing aggression towards other dogs and has scrapped with their male. Owner now alternates free time inside house between Lola and her brother. Lola is usually kept inside, crated when owner is away and her brother is kept outside. Lola is housetrained and crate trained - 9 hours - wire crate. Lola does fine in her crate and will stay there all day while owner is away. Once owner comes home, they alternate the inside time and usually put Lola outside. Lola was fine with the volunteers. She did not jump when the volunteers entered the home, but Mom had hold of her collar so that she wouldn't bolt out the door. Lola was all wiggles and showed no aggression towards the volunteers or at any time during our visit. Owner said Lola loves getting baths and does fine for grooming. Doesn't like you to touch her feet, but allows you to trim nails. For exercise, Lola plays in the yard and goes for walks. Average energy and typical Boxer play style. Not real boisterous, but will paw at you for petting. Lola doesn't really play with toys. Recently switched to Rachel Ray grain free from Walmart. Previously fed Victor grain free. Knows sit, down & come. Walks with you, but pulls a little on leash when Lola she wants to explore something further. Verbal correction. She has never reacted to them taking food or a rawhide away, she just lets them like it is no big deal. Lola doesn't play with toys. Recently became aggressive towards other animals and owner makes it sound as if it is only when the other animal is around owner. Lola seems to be jealous of other animals when they are around female owner. Last vaccinations in March when adopted Lola from shelter. Hasn't had heartworm prevention in a few months. Lola showed no aggression towards us whatsoever. Owner put Lola in crate and let the male in the house so that we could see her reaction and she was all nub wagging through the crate. Owner really wants to keep Lola and her brother, but does not know how to work through this recent aggression towards other dogs. Owner is concerned for her daughters safety as they had a hard time breaking up the last tiff between the two dogs. I wish that I had more confidence in my skills, as I would've liked to see how Lola reacted towards the other dog if the owner wasn't involved. She seemed just as sweet as could be. Owner is willing to try anything and is open to suggestions, but can't afford a professional trainer. Nothing worries Lola and she loves to ride in the car. No known injuries or illnesses.

Other Info: Wrigley is a little taller than average 70 pound neutered fawn male with natural ears and docked tail. His owners want to surrender him because they have three young boys and their after school activities keep the family too busy now. They feel Wrigley deserves to be with a family that can spend more time with him as he loves being with people. When owner is home, Wrigley stays inside free to roam house. When owner is away, Wrigley stays mostly inside, but they may leave him out in the yard if the weather is nice. He was not visible when we first entered the home, as they closed the interior doors when we arrived and he happened to be in one of the rooms. When he did come out he just pranced over to us wiggling his tail and snuggling into us for petting. He did not jump and seemed very gentle upon greeting him. He is house trained and rings a bell when he needs to go out for potty break. They don't crate, but when he goes by their parent's house he is in a wire crate. He doesn't care for the crate, but will go in when told. He gets baths outside with a water hose. He loves the water and will play in the sprinklers, or anything that has water coming out of it. Owner has never trimmed his nails. For exercise he plays with the family, their Chihuahua, or in the backyard. High energy - loves to play ball, chase his tail and the laser light. He was having a blast, but could accidentally knock over small children in his excitement. Wrigley spent a lot of time chasing his tail, but the owner said he mostly does it for extended lengths of time when strangers are around. Did not seem toy possessive. Eats Beneful brand dry dog food. He knew sit when they first got him at age 1 1/2. They have taught him shake and down. Owner says he pulls a little on the leash. Owner uses verbal correction, but they really never had to discipline him. If they tell him "no", he understands what that means. Owner said he may have lightly swatted him on the tail once. Owner says he will let you take food or toys away from him without any issues. He jumps at fence and barks when he hears people, or other dogs on the other side. He has gotten along with all the dogs he has met except for a neighbors Great Dane. Not current on vaccinations. Last vetting done in January 2013. Not on heartworm prevention. Last given in March 2013. The volunteers did not observe anything that concerned them about his behavior. Wrigley was very friendly and leaned in for petting. He did get excited and jump up on their lap to give kisses, but got down when they said "no". He is protective of the kids if he hears a male at the door. Not aggressive, just positions himself between the kids and the stranger until he knows they are okay. No known illnesses. Has some chipped teeth and a soft squishy mass on upper right portion of left hind leg. Owner said it just appeared one day a few weeks ago and just keeps growing. He let the volunteers touch, squeeze and feel it with no reaction.

Other Info: Tyr is an 8 year old medium sized (but overweight) flashy fawn spayed female with natural ears and docked tail. Her owners are surrendering her due to moving and financial hardships. She is kept in a building near the residence. She is calm, low key and gentle so I believe she will be fine with kids. The owner says she is fine with adults and kids. She is house trained. She is not crate trained. Not sure how she does with grooming. She does need to be groomed and needs a nail trim. For exercise she gets four walks a day and plays daily with a large mixed breed fur cousin that lives in the same building with her. She plays well. This dog acts 8 to 10 years of age in demeanor. She has no gray and is beautiful. Not toy possessive. Very gently and unfazed by anything. She eats dry food and gets treats. She is very treat motivated. She was trained at home. She is very well trained. (sit, down) She knows a couple of more complex commands. She sits like a person with her dad. She is excellent on a leash. She is disciplined verbally if needed or the behavior is ignored. She is gentle if you take anything of high value away from her according to the family. She is a mellow dog who gently and briefly barks at any passerby. No other behavior merits mention. She did not want to be more than an inch from her dad and grand dad while I was there and although I received a few Boxer kisses, she cuddled with her owners the whole time. She might struggle with being separated from them. The bond is obvious. She has not seen a vet in years. The family is ambivalent about surrendering her. They are actively seeking other solutions and searching for low cost vetting. Everyone cried the whole time I was there, especially the 90 year old completely coherent and ambulatory grandpa.
