Arrival Story:
Civil’s foster mom calls her Sugar because this spry 8-year-old girl really looks like someone dipped her into a barrel of sugar. Her fawn freckles make the picture even more realistic, as if some of the sugar had flown off. And those freckles appear golden and make her entire coat sparkle when she's standing in the sunlight. She also has the sweetest face: her eyes look like she tried to apply some of her foster mom’s black eye-liner and her tongue occasionally protrudes a little on the side of her mouth when she’s resting (as in the photo). Sugar is the perfect indoor dog, with impeccable manners. She has no potty accidents in the house, doesn't beg for food, and has never chewed on anything that didn’t belong to her. She is crate-trained, but reliable and tranquil enough that you can leave her alone in the house for a few hours at a time. We’ve had conflicting reports on her ability to get along with other dogs, but she currently co-exists peacefully with a cat. She is really a lover of humans, so much so that, even though she walks nicely on a leash, she has a habit of pulling towards other humans when they are around. This brings me to the final reason that Sugar is the perfect indoor dog – all she needs for her exercise is a 20 minute walk a day. Thank you Sara Fendia for virtually fostering Civil!

Bio:
Civil is a loving white female who was turned in as an owner surrender to a high kill shelter in Harlingen. With her spots, underbite, and a bit of a snaggle tooth, this sweet girl has a ton of character! Initially the shock of being abandoned was very traumatizing for Civil and it manifested in some digestive problems but with the TLC of her wonderful foster family Civil is feeling good again. We can't imagine why this doll was abandoned but she was clearly someone's indoor dog. She has wonderful home manners and almost never barks, plus she does not seem fearful of humans at all. She tolerates her foster mom handling her feet, ears and mouth with no problem at all! She is full of happy boxer wiggles and is very affectionate. Civil is living happily in a home with some pre-teens and teenagers and has absolutely loved the younger children she's met at Adoption Day. Unfortunately Civil seems to have some fear based issues with other dogs and needs to be an only dog and will not be a good candidate for dog parks or off-leash areas where other dogs are present. The good news is that Civil does not need a ton of activity and loves being a couch potato! An ideal home for Civil would be as the only dog companion for someone who loves the happy and affectionate nature of a boxer but doesn't have the time or energy to engage in the high activity level that a younger boxer requires. It certainly isn't a requirement, but Civil would love to be in a home where children or grandchildren are living or visit often. This lovebug is heartworm negative and ready to settle into her forever home!
