He's house broken and rarely ever barks, he does very well around female dogs but doesn't get along with some male dogs. He's been around cats, but they seem to not like him which could be a problem.

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-21-00463  (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    There are so many great things to say about this girl. She is quiet, calm and relaxed around the house. She will spend her time lounging around or playing with her toys. She is house trained - doesn't chew on anything other than her toys and goes to the bathroom outside. She is able to hold her bladder for 8 hours easily. London is also crate trained. She will go inside her crate willingly, waiting for her treat, and will remain there without making a peep. London loves to be outside - playing fetch, running around, or sunbathing. She can be seen chasing squirrels, chipmunks, and birds that come into the yard. She would love a fenced in yard ... (Read More)so she can run and explore as she pleases. London gets tired after running hard for thirty minutes during her morning and afternoon routines of fetch with her human. London loves car rides and is so well behaved - sits quietly in the back, looking out the window. London will need her forever family to continue to work on building her confidence. She is unsure of new humans getting in her space. London does best when she is able to approach new people on her own terms. She warms up very quickly with this approach. Treats also make everyone her new best friend. If new people don't take this approach and move into her space, she might respond with a warning bark or growl. London can live with dog savvy children who know it isn't appropriate to use her as a body pillow and who can respect her space until there is a level of trust built. She is currently living with a six year old boy and has done very well with him. It is likely that London can live with another dog. She is currently living with a senior dog that is very tolerant. London has done well with this dog but is very pushy when initiating play. London also gets very excitable if another dog has very high energy. Her forever family would need to work with her to manage this excitement so that the play doesn't get out of hand. It is recommended that she is slowly integrated with the resident dog as she is insecure in the beginning. London is working on her basic commands and will need continued work walking on a leash. She is a curious girl and will pull when walking in new areas or if a squirrel runs by. The good thing is she is easily redirected with treats as she is so food motivated. She is spayed and up to date on her shots. Serious inquires only. Application, home visit and reference checks will be required. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-30-00172  (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Eve's start to life was not the best one, but also not the worst. She was very loved, but unfortunately, she was not socialized at all and really did not leave the house from puppyhood until about 9 months old when she came into our rescue and went into foster. While her foster family absolutely adored her, she was a huge pain to take anywhere because of her lack of social skills and manners. Because of this, we felt it would be best for her to do a board and train before going up for adoption. Eve is now almost two and in her board and train. She has proven to be an A+ student. She is crate and house trained as well as knows sit, down, ... (Read More)place, drop it, and is mastering loose leash walking. Though Eve is still young and energetic she is calm in the house. All she wants to do is cuddle up with her humans. If you give her a soft toy, she will happily throw it into the air herself over and over. She is really quite the comedian and will keep you laughing for hours. In her board and train, she has begun to learn how to properly interact with other dogs. Though we have high hopes of Eve becoming a social dog, as of right now, we would like to see her placed as the only dog in her foster home so that her training can be the main focus (but she would be happy to live with kids!). With training and time, Eve will surely blossom into a even more amazing dog than she already is. Whoever adopts her will have continued training support.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Boxer in Massachusetts
    Boxer Dogs can make good pets in Massachusetts if they match your IifestyIe. Boxer dogs are energetic, playful and intelligent animals, they like to clown around a lot and will keep you laughing. Boxers learn new things quickly, and, at the same time, can be clever and stubborn. Boxer dogs bond well with a family, are very affectionate and get along well with children. Boxers need a lot of exercise, and will be well-behaved as long as they are taken on long walks every day. If kept confined without a lot of exercise, however, boxer dogs can become destructive. Boxers require lots of human companionship and should never be left alone for long periods of time.

lnteresting Boxer Trivia Low-Cost Massachusetts Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The name boxer originates from the fact that boxer dogs look like they are actually boxing when they play using their front paws. Approximately 1 in 5 boxers are born white, and almost 20% of white boxers are deaf.
