Rose and her babies can to our center from a high kill shelter. They are super sweet . Rose is a petite Boxer/Greyhound mix and some of her puppies inherited their mothers small frame, while a couple seemed to have the build of an american bulldog, with a smaller size thrown in. Were hoping to find loving homes that will cherish her forever.
The Boxer is happy, high-spirited, playful, curious and energetic. Highly intelligent, eager and quick to learn. The Boxer is a good dog for competitive obedience. Constantly on the move, bonding very closely with the family. Loyal and affectionate, Boxers are known for the way they get along so well with children. A well brought-up and properly socialized Boxer will also get along with his own kind and other household pets such as cats.
The American Bulldog is loyal, reliable, brave and determined. Not a hostile dog. Alert and self-confident, this breed genuinely loves children. It is known for its acts of heroism towards its master. They have strong protective instincts, and need a firm, confident, consistent PACK LEADER. Well-socialize and obedience train them at an early age, to prevent them from becoming reserved with strangers. Without that strong minded pack leader who can tell the dog what is expected of them, they may be aggressive with other dogs. They need to be around people and know their place in their pack to be truly happy. This breed tends to drool and slobber. Without enough daily exercise they will become high strung and may become hard to handle, so plenty of activities is recomended.
