George is a beautiful fawn boxer with attitude. He is gorgeous and he knows it. But he doesn’t like cats.
He has a short muzzle and turned-up nose. He is of average height for a boxer and is lean and muscular.
George is located at the Big Bear Animal Shelter in the San Bernardino mountains. He has been there since Jan. 8 and could be killed at any time.
George is 2 years old, which in boxer language means he is enthusiastic, happy and energetic. He is one of those boxers that has pogo sticks for leg. He likes to jump straight up in the air. And he can jump high so he needs a yard with a tall fence, preferably six feet high.
Boxers do not consider themselves to be dogs, but rather members of the family—family members who sleep and spend most of their time inside the house with their humans. They do not do well as backyard dogs. They get bored easily when they do not have human companionship.
George could use a bit of obedience training but mostly he needs a family that equals his energy level. He would love to be a jogging or hiking companion but will also be happy cuddling at his human’s feet while they read or watch television.
Would you consider opening your heart to George? His ID is #544287.
The shelter can be reached at 909.866.4943. It is a small, rural shelter with few staff members, so please only call if you are sincerely interested in helping him.
