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 DUE TO TIME AT SHELTER***

Update 11/17: The shelter will have to make some decisions soon, they have been there too long. This boy has been at the shelter for over 3 months and are starting to show signs of kennel stress and is throwing up every day. They desperately need our help or we will lose him. Shelter has found out that he is food aggressive with other dogs and is now urgent. Titus is a 10ish year old large sized neutered fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. Titus is friendly and big. He was happy to say hello to us and pottied outside a few times. He enjoyed stretching his legs in the visiting yard and hopped up on the bench a few times to give me kisses. He was alert and galloped around the yard. He barked at a person who came out of the building and ran over to that side of the fence. It was more an alert action than anything else. I think he'd be good with kids older than 12 because he is large (about 70 lbs) and in good shape. I think he knows his size because he was careful jumping up to say Hi. He came in with his "brother" (BIN 16372) and got along well with him in the play yard. They were the only two in the play yard, but neither seemed fazed by the shelter noise. Titus knew off and sit, but was too excited to do anything else but say Hi. No opportunity to leash test. His owners either crated him or left him in the backyard. Unknown how much interaction he had with them. Unable to cat test. Heart worm status unknown (shelter doesn't test for it), but since shelter worker told me he was mostly an outside dog and had not had other vaccinations, Titus is likely heartworm positive. He has clear eyes and clean ears. His teeth had some plaque He is very frosted on his face and back (stress of living?) He had one small bump on his right side, a 3mm lump on his upper right flank and a small growth on the inside of his left back leg. His toenails were kind of long. Owner surrendered to shelter because of marriage/relationship split.

This is a 2 year old medium sized reverse brindle female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. She is a happy, friendly girl who seems to love everybody. I think she would be good with older children because of her size. She is great with the male boxer (BIN 16562) that she came in with. She was also okay with an unaltered female when we let her out. They played together. She does well on a leash and knows sit. She is treat motivated. Unable to cat test. She has had her intake vaccines. The shelter does not heart worm test. Seems to be a healthy girl. Maybe a little chubby! She will be off hold Saturday December 3rd and is in a little shelter where 7 of the 8 runs are full.

Other Info: ***URGENT DUE TO FULL SHELTER***

This is a 2 year old medium sized neutered fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. This happy boy is friendly and loves to give kisses. He does jump up in excitement. He and the female (BIN 16561) he came in with, get along great! They seem fairly bonded. We let another female dog out in the yard with them both and he growled at the other female, which was an unaltered female. She was playing with the female boxer and it seemed he wanted to be protective of her. I think they both would be good with kids but maybe 8 or older because of their size. He does well on a leash and knows sit. He is treat motivated. Unable to cat test. He has had his intake vaccines. The shelter does not do heart worm tests. This boy seems healthy overall. He loves people and wants out of the shelter. They stick pretty close together. He will be off hold Saturday December 3rd and is in a little shelter where 7 of the 8 runs are full.

Other Info: Bella is a 6 year old spayed white female with brown spots and natural ears and a docked tail. She weighs approximately 45 pounds. First and foremost the owner has fallen on tough financial times over the last 2 years as well as had family struggles. They have 3 small children (all under the age of 4) and have lost jobs and homes over the last 2 years. Additionally, they are now living in an apartment that will not take pets. They are trying to get a home, but financially cannot afford at this time. Further, because of their above financial issues, over the last 2 years, Bella has lived with family members of the owners. When Bella went to live with family initially, there was only one other dog. That family has now added 3 additional dogs, 2 of which have shown aggression toward Bella. The three large dogs ALL live outside. When the owner had Bella she was primarily an inside dog and did use a kennel and is potty trained. She had free roam of the home most of the time. Currently she lives outside 100% of the time. Bella is good with adults. She immediately came up to me and was friendly. The owner advised she is protective of her family and yard, but warms up quickly to individuals in the family or strangers as she did with me. There was a small long haired weiner dog who came outside when I was evaluating Bella and she was friendly, loving and not aggressive to this dog. Bella does not jump on her children, and Bella was walked on her leash by the 4 year old present. Bella LOVES to give kisses to her children. Bella LOVES baths, but as she currently lives outside, she was dirty and probably has not had a bath in a long time. She went to PetsMart and they never received any notification that she had anxiety, aggressive behavior or problems when either bathed or nails trimmed. Bella had been to the dog park and doggie day care when she was living with her family and did very well, did not show any aggressive behavior or anxiety. She gets 100% exercise running in the yrd as she lives outside at the moment. She was playful with me and would jump up to give Boxer kisses and hugs; but she did well with the 4 year old present and never once knocked her down. In fact, the family left Bella off the leash for a bit and she remained in the yard with all of us. The family advised she was trained to stay by their side and not leave their yard. She was very doting on the 4 year old and definitely showed love toward her family. She is not possessive with her toys. She currently eats Purina dry. NO table food is given to Bella. The family attempted this in the past and Bella had diarrhea and vomiting. Bella has no formal training, but she knows sit (in spanish) and "potty" -- she goes to the door. Her leash walking is excellent. She walked by the 4 year old without ANY tugging or pulling. She is disciplined using verbal correction and a squirt bottle (primarily when she was a puppy). When Bella attempts to be a bit pushy and wiggle her way into a lap or a couch, owner would ignore her and Bella would leave. There were no problems with Bella when she lived with them, but she is unsure of the feedings at her current location or if there have been any problems. Bella would allow you to move her bowl, pick it up and would never growl, snap or become aggressive. Sometimes she will jump, but it is a gentle jump. She is unsure if Bella digs and I was not able to evaluate the backyard. She stated she has no separation anxiety, but did get bored (she chewed up some wooden blinds). Bella has not ever exhibited nipping behavior and has not been aggressive to animals (unless it was a squirrel or raccoon in her yard). Bella has lived with cats and small children without issues. She is not up to date on vaccinations or heart worm prevention, it has been over two years since she has received either. With 3 children, changes in financial status and job status, the owner has been overwhelmed and unable to appropriately take care of Bella. She stated that over the last 2 years they have tried to get on their feet and get a house so they could bring Bella back to live with them. She felt that because they had not been able to complete this over the last 2 years, she wanted to be fair to Bella and her family and find her a safe, loving home. In general, I feel that Bella is an URGENT owner surrender based on her safety as well as her open spot on her head. Bella is chipped but not currently registered. Bella's behavior in the past has been "great" and she loves the car, her people, and family. The owner is DEEPLY concerned for her safety at this home as the dogs in the back yard with Bella have been aggressive with Bella in the past. There have been 2 fights that she has been told about (no injury to Bella) and the family advised her Bella did not instigate these 2 fights. The neighbors have complained about the 3 dogs barking and behavior of the 2 dogs with Bella and it appears the male instigating all of the problems. There was a very small laceration to the right lower leg of Bella and a spot on her head that I am not sure what it is but is open, red and skin is raw (there is no hair noted on the spot). The owner is not sure how this occurred, and the individuals that Bella lives with has not advised her if this is an injury. Bella has allergies and her eyes are always red. They were red and had drainage, but nothing that had an odor to it.

Other Info: Rocco is a 6 year old larger sized neutered fawn male with cropped ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered because the owner and her husband are going through a long drawn out divorce. They have had 3 dogs in the past (2 small dogs and Rocco). The family was forced to sell their home during the divorce and she and her 4 children have been living in an apartment (that lease is now up) and are in a hotel now. She relates that they have had Rocco since he was 6 weeks old and that he was primarily her future ex-husbands dog but that her ex-husband's apartment complex will not allow him to have Boxers. She states that he is a very large dog for her to handle and when she asked her future ex-husband to take him again and help her find a place for Rocco, that he basically told her he would take care if of by "putting him down." She wants him to go to a family who can care for him. She said this has been hard on all of her family but she feels unqualified to take care of him as he is larger than her other two and at times she is scared he will drag her or pull her down. He was kept in the home free to roam or in an interior covered courtyard of their home. She relates that at night he slept with her children (on their beds. The owner said Rocco was good with all of the children as well as their friends who visited. She did relate that when she had smaller children visiting (<3) she would have Rocco stay outside because of his size and quick movements. He loves people and just loves to be around people. He is house trained. The kennel assistant stated that he doesn't like to even go to the bathroom in his run. He whines when he wants to go out. They used to bathe Rocco outdoors and he loves the water. Rocco's nails were trimmed at the vet each time and they did not convey to them any problems. Currently Rocco is in boarding. The area where he is kept is clean and he appears to be well groomed and kept. The kennel is booked for the holiday so she is concerned that they may not have room for him and they have advised they may not have room for him. She is VERY concerned as she is not sure what she will do if they cannot keep him for her. Rocco is very very very active. He loves to jump and give hugs. He has TONS of Boxer wiggles, kisses and hugs for not only me but the kennel assistant. He ran and played in the kennel yard and was a joy to watch. He has a humongous boxer spirit. He did not engage with the other dogs in the kennels near him when he was out. He would run by them when they started barking, but he did not engage. If he stopped, he was easily distracted by just calling his name. He was never possessive of any toys, never ate shoes as a puppy and loved to play. The kennel assistant advised they Rocco never chews on his pillow or anything. He currently eats IAMS dry food. He has had formal training by the owners family through classes. He knows sit, down, no jumping and follows commands to get in his kennel and loves his treats. He has NEVER been food aggressive with his own food and she stated that "all three of the dogs would have their heads in their bowls and nothing would happen." She did advise that if Rocco was provided "people food" that he wanted all of it and would growl at the other dogs but never snapped or charged. Because of Rocco's size she did not walk him much but when she did he would pull. He forgets his size. He is disciplined using verbal commands with a louder deeper voice. If you leave the thanksgiving turkey on the counter and walk out, Rocco will be having turkey for dinner. I believe he is a bit of a counter surfer. He did dig when he was younger and they lived in Indiana where they had a mole problem. But that he had not dug at their home in Texas. He never jumped their fence, but that one time when her and her children were living in the apartment one of them left the patio door unlocked and Rocco was smart enough to figure out how to open the door and got out. Rocco is just a love bug and a huge lap dog. He would work hard to weasel his way onto your lap. He is a leaner and sits on your foot and just LOVES to be around people. He just doesn't know his size sometimes and is jumpy and hyper and probably not good around small children. (I believe that with training he would be okay, but he was a very active boy....just being let out of his kennel to meet me...and he probably needs older children in the family). He is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. Rocco does not have a chip. The small yorkie that is also in the home would try to instigate fights with Rocco and he would walk away. The kennel assistant said he was just "the nicest dog she had met", that "he was gentle and friendly" and "loving and jumpy". She related that he does not engage with any of the other dogs in the kennels beside him and just seems to love people. She further related that Rocco is a "well rounded dog, good tempered and too smart possibly for his own good." So I think with the door opening and counter surfing he definitely needs someone who will keep a good eye on him. The owner could not remember anything that caused Rocco to behave differently or badly. They did not take Rocco to dog parks or around large crowds. The kennel assistant stated that she has not seen any abnormal behavior with any loud noises, etc. The owner said that when a glass door was broken accidentally by her children, Rocco somehow walked through the glass and was cut and had to have stitches. He does have two small scars on the right side of his head.

Other Info: Hope is a 7 to 8 year old spayed medium sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because her owner is living with his sister after going through a divorce. He wants Hope to be in a home that can show her more love and attention than he is able to provide at this time. Hope stayed inside and had free roam of the house before her parents went through a divorce. Currently she is staying in the backyard since moving in with the owner's sister. This is due to lack of space and multiple pets. This sweet girl is a lovebug and gets along with everyone. She was so happy to meet us when we went to visit her. Hope lived with a six year old child and is not jumpy at all, so should be good around children. Hope currently lives with several small dogs and a cat. Owner said she has lived with larger dogs also. Owner says Hope is fully housetrained and never has accidents. Hope was crated when they first rescued her. She crated easily and never barked. They were soon able to leave her out to roam freely around the house. Hope is fine during bathing. She is fine with nail trimming. Her main exercise is playing in the backyard. In the past she was taken on walks. Hope has a moderate energy level. She gets excited when her dad comes home and plays with her. But, she is also happy to hang out with her people taking naps or being a lap dog if allowed. She is not possessive with toys, no aggression reported. Hope is currently eating dry Pedigree. Hope's owner rescued her about a year and a half ago and he said she already knew sit and shake. Owner reports she walks well on the leash. Owner said that Hope doesn't need to be disciplined. Hope is an easy going dog and does not react badly when things are taken from her. No behaviors were reported that would be an issue for fosters or new adopters. She is not current on vaccinations or currently taking heart worm prevention. Hope is a great dog!! She is calm and very loveable. She is small and large dog friendly. She is also good with children and is cat friendly. She just needs a new home to show her love and spend time with her. Adopters would be very lucky to have this sweet girl in their family. Hope's dad said that he has not seen her get anxious or worried in any situation. No known injuries or illnesses.

Other Info: Ranger is a 4 year old spayed larger than average fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. The family purchased Ranger in Georgia. They have since moved to Texas, and now they are preparing to move to Seattle, WA. The home they were looking at in Seattle did not have a yard and wasn't pet-friendly. This is why the reached out to Legacy for possible surrender. HOWEVER, they told me at the visit yesterday that they are looking at a different home now, and it is dog-friendly setup with a yard. They would like to keep Ranger but they will need a spot for her to go during their transition period until they get settled in at Seattle. Ranger stays outside. :( They used to bring her in sometimes at night, but she is currently in the back yard all day/night with the owner's parents' large male dog who keeps Ranger company. Their house is on the market, they have been packing up, and they are now staying/sleeping somewhere else and the dogs stay at the house in the back yard pretty much by themselves. Ranger is friendly to everyone and does well with children of all ages. She is protective of her family but in no way is she aggressive. she is house and crate trained, but hasn't been crated in years. Ranger loves water! She likes to play in the sprinklers and with the water hose. She does good for grooming and baths. The groomer does this, and she reportedly does fine. She enjoys walks with her family and playing in the yard. Ranger is high energy. She loves to run and play. She is not possessive with toys. She is currently eating Costco dry dog food and table scraps. Ranger displayed sit, and high-five for me. She did have obedience training as a puppy and did very well. She pulls a little at first, but quickly settles in with a good heel. She is disciplined using verbal correction. She listens well. No reaction at all if someone tried to take a food bowl or rawhide from her. she is not possessive about anything. She digs occasionally. Ranger reportedly used to attend doggie day care and has always done great with other dogs in a social setting. However, Jackie's parents were keeping Ranger at their house, and Ranger got into a tussle with their smallish, yappy lap dog (they had previously gotten along). They took her to the vet to get checked out and vet told them she was healthy and that she was probably challenging the small dog for dominance. From what I could gather, the little dog was always in Ranger's face barking and generally annoying her. This is apparently what sparked the fight. They feel she would be best as either an only dog or a dog with older, more laid-back dogs. She is due now for her annual vaccinations and is current on heart worm prevention. Ranger is a beautiful, sweet girl. She is curious about new noises, but she is not overly anxious about anything. She was recently vetted and was healthy. She appeared healthy to me as well. A little thinner than I would like, but not much.

Other Info: Rocky is a 50 lb unaltered 9 year old fawn male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. His family has young boys who are both involved with sports, which take them out of town several times a month. They also have lots of evenings where they are away from the home and he is alone. Currently Rocky is being boarded several days a month and the family feels it would be better for him to be with a family that is home more often and he will not have to spend time boarded with the vet. Rocky is mostly kept outside. He is allowed to come in at night and sleeps in his crate. Rocky is a sweet boy, very calm and gentle. Family has had him since he was a puppy. He loves their boys who are 16 and 9. He did not bark and was not aggressive towards us as we entered the home. We were able to pet him immediately without him being afraid. They stated he will bark when a stranger enters the yard, ie, lawn guys, etc. Family stated friends have brought their dogs over and he does fine with them being in the home. He is not aggressive towards other dogs while out for walks, just curious like he wants to play. Owner said if they have small children over and they pull or poke at him, he does well with no reaction. He is both house and crate trained. He is kept in his crate at night and at times when it is raining outside. Crate is metal/wire. Owner stated they bathe him outside and he does well. Likes to be rubbed during the bathing. Family stated vet trims nail and they do not know how he reacts to this. He is outside on his own for the majority of the day where he has free roam of the yard. Family stated when it's not too hot, their son will walk him on the leash. Rocky's energy level is low. Once we took him outside he did get more excited, but seemed happy and just trotted around. He does not have any toys that I could see. Family stated he was not possessive with toys. He has not had any professional training. He is super smart. He was able to show us sit, down, roll over, shake, and high-five. Family stated he learns quickly. Family stated Rocky doesn't really need correction, that he is a good dog. Says if anything, they will use verbal correction if necessary. Their oldest son reached in his food bowl and took some out to hand feed him and he was all wags. They stated he does not have any food aggression. He is a sweet boy and well behaved. Family stated since he is boarded several times a month, the vet keeps him up to date on vaccinations. They stated he will need one coming up in December. I wanted to take this boy home with me. He was gentle, sweet, happy and a love bug. He has been well taken care of and in good health. I feel like he would do well with any adopter. We could tell he loved the boys and is very attached to one specifically. Although he is 9, he does not appear to look his age. He is doesn't show any signs of arthritis or having difficulty health-wise due to his age. He is afraid of thunder and the washer and dryer. He tends to cry when he knows a storm is coming. Since the washer and dryer upset him, the family keeps the door to the laundry room closed. The dryer was running while we were there and he seemed fine.

Other Info: Marshall is a 1 year old (DOB 6/21/2015) neutered flashy brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. He weighs approximately 60 pounds. He is being surrendered due to owners not having enough time for him. This young couple acquired Marshall when the husband's co-worker needed to rehome Marshall for family reasons He was approx 6 months old when they acquired Marshall and he has lived with them since then. The owners have 2 daughters (4 and 2) and they have busy lives and do not feel they can give Marshall as much time as he deserves. He is kept outside in a large yard and inside to roam and in his kennel. He is good natured. He is very good with the 4 year old out in the yard and she gave him treats while I was there on the visit. He is very jumpy and LOVES to give kisses. He was welcoming to me, did not scare with my baseball cap on my head or glasses. The owners did say he is very protective of his yard and his family. They stated that even though he knows the neighbors well and loves them, when they are on the other side of the fence he is protective and barks his warning. He has caught a squirrel in "his yard" and does not like cats. The owners advised that when she is home alone with Marshall he follows her commands, but when the husband is home, Marshall listens much better to him and sees him as the leader of his pack. He is house and crate trained and is used to a wire crate. The owner stated he does well with bathing and grooming and "likes to be pampered". He is brushed and loves being brushed. He does not get his nails trimmed. He has been walked in the past and the owner said he did well on the leash when she also had a stroller. I did not get a chance to test his leash skills. He is VERY active and definitely has a great deal of puppy energy. He does play fetch, sits prior to it being thrown and returns, but does not drop the toy. He loves to play tug-o-war. He is not possessive with his toys. He currently eats dry food. Marshall loves carrots for his treats and is VERY treat motivated. Prior to eating he lays down and waits for his food and only eats when he is given his command to eat. The family reported the 4 year old feeds him and assists with this feeding ritual. No training with this family, but appears to have had some form of training with the prior family. The owners advise he has never had an accident in their home. Owner says he walks well on a leash and is easily redirected and pulls some. He is disciplined using verbal correction, in a stern voice. The crate is NOT used as a time-out. Marshall is not food aggressive and does not growl or lunge when taking away his toy or his treats. He is definitely a jumper and will jump from behind to get your attention. He does dig and I saw several small holes in the ground. He has a large yard to run and play and comes inside to be in his kennel and feed. He was clean and I did not see any fleas on him. He had no lumps/bumps and does still have his dew claws. His teeth are white. The family relates that he really hasn't been socialized with other humans other than their neighbors and family/friends. They relate he has not been to any dog parks and he attempts to get along with the family's other dog a 13 year old Min-Pin, but the Min-Pin is reportedly very alpha and wants NOTHING to do with him. The owners said that he does not get aggressive with the smaller dog and leaves her alone when she asserts her dominance. Owner states he is up to date on vaccinations, but have no vet records to show this. He is not on heart worm prevention. Marshall was just as sweet, jumpy and loving as can be. He sat and awaited his toy to be thrown. He has a beautiful clean coat and loves to give kisses. He is full of Boxer puppy energy. While I was in the yard with Marshall and his family (husband, wife and 4 year old) he did not run to close to the child or near her as to jump or push her down. He is such a sweet dog and will make someone a great family dog. He definitely needs some training and because he is treat motivated I believe he will do well with his training. Marshall is easy going. He does not scare with fireworks or thunder storms. He has no illnesses or injuries the owner is aware of.

Other Info: Star is a 2 to 3 year old spayed average sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She weighs about 60 pounds. Star was rescued from the shelter before her euthanasia day and nursed back to health. She was suffering from demodex mange. Her family has two chihauhua's, one is 15 years old and Star's energy level can be too much for him to handle. Also, mom works 12 hour days and it doesn't give her much time to devote to her. Star would really benefit from an active home looking for an active boxer and a fur brother that wants to box! She is crated or left outside when owner is home and away. She is super excited to meet new people, can nibble at your fingers for attention, but is gentle. Currently lives with 2 boys, ages 5 and 7, and loves them both. She is strong and can easily knock them down so dog savvy kids are best. She is house and crate trained. She has a plastic crate, which they call her 'pen', she will go right in and can handle a full work day or night. She is fine for grooming, bathing, and nail trims. She can be a little excitable. She mostly plays in the backyard on her own or with her 2 kids for exercise. Star is high energy and does lots of boxer play; boxing, kidney beans, boxer burns, playbows, and deer leaping. This girl likes to have fun! She is submissive when trying to get other dogs to play and takes their direction if she's being too crazy. She gets hurt feelings easily so will stop when someone lets her know they've had enough. I imagine with an active playmate and regular walks and/or runs she would calm down. She does like to snuggle with her people and enjoys sleeping in on lazy days. She doesn't always want to share with the other dogs, but will always let people of all sizes take her toys. She currently eats Purina dry. She doesn't have any training, although I was able to get her to sit a couple of times. She could be trained, she's food motivated and likes any attention. She could use more practice with leash walking. She is disciplined using verbal and they use a wooden back scratcher, they don't have to touch her with it, just point it at her and she is attentive and calms down. She doesn't mind people taking things away but will give a growl to the little dogs taking something, but is never aggressive. She does jump up and nibble at fingers for attention, counter surfs if left alone not in her crate. When she knocks her kids down, she always circles back to check on them and give kisses. She is current on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. She is so sweet and such a happy girl! She loves her boys and wants so badly for the 2 chihuahuas to play with her but they are just too tiny for her boxing. She knows to go to her bed and pen (crate), loves to snuggle with her people on the couch or in the bed. She is very welcoming towards all people. Probably wouldn't be good with cats, she has a high prey drive for bunnies. She doesn't seem to worry about anything, she just needs to have some healthy outlets for her energy. She will bolt out the front door and run, even in front on cars if you don't catch her fast enough. She is still recovering from demodex mange but looks great and does have a sensitive stomach so they keep her on a lower fat diet and no table foods.

Other Info: Lexi is 50 to 60 pound average sized flashy fawn spayed female Boxer with natural ears and a docked tail. Her owner's home situation has changed and it would be best for Lexi to be rehomed. Lexi isn't a huge fans of young children & would love to be in a child free home. She is an inside girl, but does enjoy the crate outside on nice days. Lexi loves her owner and is protective of him so she's weary of new people but is never aggressive. She just needs a minute to check you out. Once she knows you're 'safe' then she is fine. She loves her boxer sister & was welcoming of a stray dachshund & her litter of puppies. She isn't a fan of young kids and she doesn't want them in her space. She does not bite but she gives you a low growl to let you know her comfort level. Very good reaction to have. Overall she just needs a little time to warm up in new situations, she's more of an observer. She is house trained as long as she gets regular potty time outside. She is crate trained. She is fine with grooming and nail trims. She does not get much exercise, she is mostly inside with not much room to run around. She LOVES being outside enjoying the sunshine, so I know she would enjoy a fenced in backyard. She's very laid back, just wants to sit by her owner inside. She does give hugs on demand and they're very gentle & short. She goes crazy over a squeaky toy! (in a fun way). She eats Purina. She was trained at home and knows sit & give hugs. Her leash behavior is not known. Owner uses verbal correction if required. She would prefer not to have things taken from her. She just needs a patient home to give her plenty of space and time to adjust. She is not up to date on vaccinations and is not on HWP. Lexi was originally rescued by her current owner years ago, they got her healthy and happy. As she got a little older she became a little more protective of her people, she just wants to make sure her family is safe. She will bark at new people but if you ignore her and let her sniff you, she'll be okay. You can tell she senses the change in her home and is just worried. Very pretty girl with a very soft coat. Children & strangers make her nervous. Lexi can't hold her bladder for more than a few hours at a time ever since her spay. So she can dribble just a little if she can't have outdoor access.

Other Info: Billet is a 7 year old unaltered medium sized flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. The current owner states she is unable to take care of Billet due to school and financial concerns. Billet was returned to her after being found unexpectedly. The current owner and her ex boyfriend shared Billet, but Billet was kept by the ex for years. Billet was deemed lost recently and the current owner was contacted when Billet was found due to his microchip contact information. Billet is kept inside the majority of the day, where he sleeps. He is allowed outside in the yard to play with the other family dogs. When the family is not home, Billet is kept inside his kennel. Billet appears to be very friendly with strangers. He greeted me with sweet kisses and did not jump. The current owner states he typically jumps at strangers but calms down and is easily re-directed. The current owner also states she has introduced Billet to her best friend's 19-month old baby that Billet appeared to just love on the baby. He gave the little girl kisses and stood by her side. The current owner states there are no signs of aggression toward strangers, animals, or children. Billet is house trained and he has only had one accident inside since August. Billet is crate trained and sleeps in his crate while the family is away from the home. The current owner's brother states Billet does not like to be bathed. He's not a fan of water per say. He tries to jump out of the bathtub every chance he gets. It is unknown how Billet acts when getting his nails trimmed. Billet is walked around their neighborhood or allowed to run around in their backyard for exercise. He is an energetic 7 year old boxer. He has a few gray hairs, but if it wasn't for that, his personality shows a spunky 4 year old. He is very playful and appears to enjoy the company of people. Billet did not show any sign of aggression towards toys. He is currently eating Blue Wilderness. Billet was personally trained at home. Billet does not like the leash and would benefit from leash training. The current owner uses verbal correction such as "no" and "stop." No food aggression has been noted with Billet; Billet is not isolated when fed and fed with the other dogs in the house. Billet jumps intermittently but it is controlled and as stated previously, he is easily re-directed. The current owner does recommend a home with an enclosed fence because Billet does love the free range and enjoys being outside. Billet has been vaccinated within the last 6 mths. He is not currently taking heart worm prevention. Billet does have a skin tag on his right mid chest/abdominal region, rather large. It does not appear to bother him when I touched or pulled on it, but it should be checked out. Billet has only been with his current owner since August and they are unaware of any known injuries or illnesses at this time.

At night, she is crated for bed time. The current owners also keep her in her crate over 8 hours while they are at work. She is currently crated in a metal crate. Layla is very afraid and un-socialized. She exhibits extreme fear around adult men. A man and a 10yr old child were present with me for evaluation; Layla did not lunge or bite and has no history of that behavior but you could she that she was fearful. Once we sat and let her calm, She came to trust and let everyone interact with her. She took to the child quickly with all wags. SLOW intro's with adult men needed.

Other Info: ***URGENT DUE TO FULL SHELTER***

Update 12/3: Tag has been sent, waiting for confirmation. Paisley is a 9 year old spayed large sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Paisley is a senior lady that was dropped off at the shelter by her owners as they didn't have enough time for her. She was sweet and very calm even though she was scared of her surroundings. She was very gentle and not jumpy at all. I feel she would be good with children of all ages. She walked right passed all the crazily barking dogs and payed them no attention. She walked well on the lead but would not perform any commands. There was no cat test available. She was overweight but I did not feel any lumps or bumps. She is in desperate need of a good nail clipping. Paisley is a senior lady that is confuse and scared in her surroundings. She would be forever grateful to the wonderful people that would rescue her from her current situation.
