- DOG SELECTIVE
Sweet, seven-year-old Gracie enjoys being close to her person yet is not an in-your-face kind of dog. Content to hang out nearby, shes likely to follow you from room to room, but then plop down for a nap! As smart as they come, Gracie has mastered sit, stay, crate, come, no, and shake. And of course, shes house trained! Although Gracie does fine in a crate while her person is gone, she is so calm she can also be left un-crated without being destructive. If left up to her, though, shed prefer someone who is home most of the time--- and would especially love if that someone would play a little game of fetch with her! Her favorite toy is any kind of ball, and once she has it theres no guarantee shell give it back! This girl can give a bit of sasswithout ever being sassy! Same thing when she meets someone new. Gracie will give up a few barks before she quickly calms down to meet the new person. And then all is cool in her world.
Gracie is selective of other dogs in her adoptive home and does not like cats. Because of this, small children will probably not be a good fit either. She enjoys car rides and neighborhood walks, preferably with a harness. All those SMELLS! Squirrels and other small critters capture her keen attention, and she may give chase, so caution must be taken.
Gracie appears in good health. Upon her spay surgery, the vet noted a heart arrhythmia. How, or if, this will impact her in the future is unknown.
Gracie cant wait to settle into her new home, and true to her Boxer heritage, shell be one loyal, loving canine family member!
