Smokey 20-4740

I’ve been in my foster home for about a month now. I’m learning the routine and I have started to settle in.  I am doing well with house training but I really don’t like to go out when it’s raining. When foster mom opens the door and I see all that rain I run and hide in another room!  But then she finds me and I still have to go out to potty.

My favorite place to be is cuddled up next to my foster mom. I love to lay my big old head on her lap.   I also like to chew on stuffed bones or Nyla bones and play with my tug rope.

Sometimes I counter surf. Did you know about all the good stuff they keep up there?! Now the treat bags and other goodies are kept in the cabinets because I’ve had a few extra snacks.

I am now logically president of neighborhood watch. I alert everyone in the house know when someone walks by my front yard.  🤣

If your looking for a handsome, sweet boy like me, contact Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue. Paws & Kisses, Smokey
