Arrival Story:
Meet Barrette! She is a two-year-old fawn Boxer weighing in close to 50 pounds. Barrette was picked up by ACS with her partner in crime, Q-Tip, and the two are currently living together in a foster home. Barrette is a healthy girl who is heartworm negative. She currently has one back leg that gets ‘tired.’ After playtime or a long walk, she does favor it and limp a bit. However, an anti-inflammatory is helping this considerably. Barrette is a very friendly girl who loves dogs of all shapes and sizes. Barrette has only been observed with cats through the backyard, but she was VERY interested. Barrette has not yet been tested with children, but based on her personality, it is guessed that she would be fine with them. Barrette is a medium-energy dog who loves to fetch (and actually brings the ball back). Her most favorite thing in the world is affection. Her foster mom tells us that she will give up food, treats, and toys, just to hang out with her person and to get a cuddle. We believe that Barrette had never walked on a leash before in her life, as she was terrified of it at first. However, she is quickly learning that the leash means she is getting to go for a walk (another favorite). Her foster mom cannot stress enough how much of a lover this girl is! Barrette is housebroken, and is getting used to the idea of a crate. Her foster mom is working hard on leash training, and she’s getting there, but she still gets excited and pulls. Overall, she is a sweet and adorable girl. She’s currently learning basic manners and obedience; it is quite evident that no one taught her was appropriate, but she is a quick study. Barrette is looking for a home with lots of attention and love. She will also benefit from a strong, confident human pack leader to reinforce manners and teach her to be less afraid.
