Florida Evans saved herself and her puppies by walking into a pet store with her pups trailing along behind her. The staff took her to the local shelter and BRBR swooped in and took her and her puppies in our foster program. She has been spayed and she has finished heartworm treatment and ready for a forever home.
Florida is loving being a lady of leisure now. She play boughs and just zoomies all around. She may not be the best representation of a standard boxer but her attitude and silliness is definitely there. She is goofy and a not exactly the most graceful. Florida gets very vocal, wiggly and jumping when you come home or its dinner time. She will let you know if you forget about her dinner time.
She is so cuddly all she wants to do is be with a person and just hang out. If your busy doing something that’s okay, she will find a place to lay down and just watch you do your thing, or she will chew on a bone or go chase ther backyard critters. But If she sees an opportunity to snuggle she will take it. She is very gentle when asking for attention she will paw at you sometimes or she will talk to you.
My favorite thing she does is sit in front of you and lay her head on your knee, she will sit like that for hours as long as you keep rubbing her head.
Florida has been terrific with my two dogs there has been a little bit of posturing trying to be head dog but she really doesn’t care about being head dog as long as she gets plenty of attention and she wants to play, play, play then nap, nap, nap.
She is great with other dogs she will do a little posturing here and there but her first instinct is to play. She can be a vocal player too so she will sometimes bark and get really, really excited. But has done well with my pack which includes dogs of all sizes and ages.
She ignores my birds she seems a little curious about them but basically ignores them. She will chase a squirrel or other small creatures. She loves having a backyard to run around and get her zoomies out. Unknown about cats or other animals.
Florida is house broken, He has mastered the dog door. So far, a little bit of a picky eater, but loves her kibble.
She is not the highest energy boxer but she loves to play, chase creatures in the backyard. She is in great physical shape and would probably love going on runs or walks around the neighborhood. She does pull so we are working on that and see some improvement. She is content to chill on the couch or dog bed as well.
Florida Evans was named after the great character on the 70’s tv show, Good Times. We picked this name because just like the character she was a strong mother taking care of her family in the best way she knew how and slaying it!
Florida deserves an amazing forever home.
