Arrival Story: Meet Dawson! Dawson is a very handsome young male boxer with a gorgeous fawn coat and a natural tail. He is on the smaller side for a male boxer but he's a lot of personality in a small package! Dawson was found as a stray but luckily he is heartworm negative and healthy.
Dawson is currently living happily in a foster home with a female boxer and a female pit bull mix and he gets along very well with both of them, even the one that tends to be very "choosy" about her dog friends! His foster mom has done a great job with teaching Dawson numerous commands and he has been a model student! He is very excited at the beginning of his walk but settles down and walks like a gentleman after the first five minutes. For such a young guy (we estimate he is about 2) Dawson has a very moderate energy level....he enjoys a 30 minute walk a day and some games with toys, but this is not a dog that needs as much exercise as a lot of young boxers. Dawson's favorite toys are cleaning products: he thinks brooms, dusters, etc, are all kinds of fun! After he's had some activity, Dawson is content to lounge around the house and is especially fond of snuggling on the couch.
Dawson is house trained and does well in his kennel. He is great with children but is not a candidate for a home with cats. This affectionate, sweet and smart boy is ready for his forever home!
