Tanner here! I have been in my foster home for about 6 weeks now. I am having tons of fun and learning lots of new things. For one, I am now officially potty
trained. Woo hoo!
I get along well with other dogs, and LOVE to play. I love to run zoomies in the yard, play tug of war, play Frisbee and to wrestle with the other dogs. I might not
look much like a boxer, but trust me, I can box with the best of them! I know “sit” and “down”, and am learning to wait for my food. I walk well on a
leash (until I see a cute bunny or another dog…I just get so excited and want to play) and love to go for walks every day.
I have also learned to like my crate a lot more. I’m not a huge fan of being in there if I know my foster family is out and about in the house, but I settle down. I
quietly stay in my crate all night long and also during the day when my foster parents are gone at work.
I would LOVE to have another dog (or two) to play with in my forever home, but could also be an only dog and soak up ALL your attention. I love to snuggle and
give kisses to my humans! My dream home also includes a fenced in back yard for me to run and burn my energy in.
If you are looking for a sweet, energetic, smart and playful boxer mix to add to your family, ask your adoption coordinator about me.

down off the furniture, etc.)
