Meet Dusty


5/26/19-6/1/19 DUSTY was moved to another Foster Home due to first Foster Mom's surgery. He is now with a female Boxer, going on walks with lots of play time. He has had some problems adjusting and has taken almost a week to eat consistently. He is a sensitive boy and change is hard for him. He likes his Foster sister who gives him confidence especially when the Foster parents are not home.

DUSTY, 2 years old, 75 lbs., was rescued from a shelter. He is a gorgeous, dark brindle male Boxer, who is a sweetheart. He is a big Boxer and very strong. He came to us in January with hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, Erlichia, heartworm positive, and not neutered. He made it through heartworm treatment and was neutered on 4/10/19. He is up to date on shots, rabies, microchipped, fecal and on heartworm prevention.

He is doing great in his Foster Home in Hot Springs, AR that has a senior male Boxer. There is a senior female Beagle and 2 young female Boxers who visit and he does great with them. He learned how to use the doggie door quickly. He is housetrained with a few accidents since coming to us as an outside dog. He will bark if he is not getting attention as needs human attention.He is not dominant and no aggression has been seen. He wants to sit and get petted as all about pleasing his human family. He will go out in the yard and throw around his toys and has moderate energy. DUSTY is a morning guy and as soon as you open your eyes he is right there to get you up and take him out potty and get his breakfast. If Dusty is left alone he will find anything with his Foster Mom's scent on it like her pillow, shoes, pajamas and take to the living room but not chew them up. You do need to have the garbage can out of his reach. He gets excited when someone comes to the door and Foster Mom has worked on him staying back and not going out the door.

He has not been around kids with us, but with his temperament think kids and grandkids ages 10 and older. Best with his size, to have kids and adopter with Boxer experience and keep up the basic skills. He will be a loyal Boxer and wants to please. He needs home with lots of love, training and attention. He is good walking on leash and needs to get exercise to not get overweight. We do not know about Dusty with cats so think best with no cats to not take a chance. Foster Mom reports that he is just a great Boxer with lots of love to give and be a great family pet and companion.

Foster Mom reported: "Although he likes me and other female adults, when he has a male adult visit the home he is so excited and wants to be their dog! He would be a great companion for a guy to hang with, go places and just have fun being a dog. He is a man's dog and never has been."
