Cinco here! I am a happy-go-lucky, high energy 1-2 year old boxer (mix?). I LOVE to eat, to run roomies in the yard and to play. I get along with other dogs, but do best with slow introductions as I just get SO excited with new dogs and humans. At this point, my foster family thinks I would do best in a home with a dominant dog (who will help me to learn my manners and sometimes even put me in my place) or as an only dog. I am not aggressive or mean with other dogs, but sometimes I just get so excited that I can’t help but try to show my dominance. I listen when I am told to stop, but still need lots of reminders.
I am completely potty trained and stay in a crate peacefully when my foster parents are gone at work and all night.
I LOVE all toys and I LOVE to eat. I am very food-motivated, which my foster family says is helpful in my training.
My dream home would include a fenced in back yard for me to run around in and someone with an active lifestyle who will spend lots of time with me to burn my energy.
My foster parents told me that there is family out there who will love me and care for me for all of my days. Could that be you?
