Boxer, Mixed
Lost or found date:
Pet name:
Padre is a beautiful brindle boxer that turns heads! His markings are striking, his smile is infectious, and he's one smart pup. He's done well with children 12 years and older, and also other younger children he has seen on his walks. Padre was shy initially but has really blossomed in playgroups at the shelter. He hangs out for long stretches, enjoys the company of a variety of dogs, and is one of our most sociable boys on site. We believe he shows great potential to share a home with another dog. Padre LOVES being with "his people - whether it's instigating a play session, climbing on you for cuddles or snoring next to your bed, he's ever present. Padre is very treat motivated, and this, combined with his intellect makes him prime for training. He already learned "sit, "down and "stay in just a few days. Padre is also fully potty trained and is great on walks. He doesn't pull much at all and really loves being outside. He initially barked for attention when he went into his previous foster home, but with consistency got much better! He really just wants those affectionate pets after all. For a fairly rough and tumble dog, he makes people chuckle when a leaf startles him or he gets perplexed by his own reflection. He's definitely a bit goofy, and he is all heart. His ideal home would have an active owner who likes walks and runs and has plenty of space where he can stretch his legs. He would also love a well matched doggy sibling (or two!) to keep him entertained. Come meet Padre, he'd love to show you his infectious smile!
