An update on Mercury!
She is coming in as she pleases and enjoys sleeping inside. She is crate trained, and sleeps in the crate through the night with no issues. She greets strangers with a tail wag and a smile, although she still cowers briefly when they go to pet her. She still is pretty low key, and won't play fetch or run around the yard, she still makes a great companion though!

Mercury is an eight year old Boxer mix. She is house trained, polite, and an all around happy.
When she first came home she was very underweight, very scared, and confused. She has
came an incredibly long way in the last month. She just wants to be loved. Being an older dog,
her activity level is low and she is easy to please. She will do best in a home with older
children. She isn't the dog for jogs, dog parks or canoe trips. But if you're looking for a dog
to keep you company on a lazy Sunday when all you want to do is sit around in your pj's
watching Netflix, Mercury is your girl!

She prefers to eat alone and outside. She prefers to be outside. She is just now comfortable
coming in and out as she pleases, but still prefers to sleep outside. She makes a commotion
when I try to keep her inside. I have a two story home and she can't or won't go up the stairs,
but does use the step on my back patio to get in and out. She is a little "crooked" at times, the
vet believes it is vertigo. She has small bumps that are visible under the skin, those are benign.
She has an unattractive skin tag on the side of her chest as well. Although she enjoys SHORT
walks around the neighborhood, she runs from the leash.

Her adoption fee will also include a dog license, and she is up to date on all her shots which
include Bordetella and parvo/distemper.

If you live within 100 miles of Cincinnati and are interested in this girl please contact her foster
mom Jessica at
