Posted Breed: Boxer / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Uh...no, I’m not interested in looking at the camera and saying “cheese”. I have WAY more fun stuff to do than that! My name is Jimmy, by the way. And I hate to brag, but I’m awesome. There, I said it! I’m just an all-around really nice dog and I’d love to find a person, couple or family who appreciates how cool I am. I’m about 4 years old, weigh 35# and I’m a "Boxer/Terrier-cetera". I am house-trained and crate-trained. But that’s not all...I’m very smart, eager to please, highly-trainable, friendly with strangers and other dogs, and very loyal to my humans. I could settle in SO easily and effortlessly in a new home!!
I’m playful and moderately-active. Give me the opportunity to get tired each day, and I’m a happy camper. I’d make a great walking buddy for you, or maybe we could also go to the dog park? I’d LOVE to be your forever boy. Please consider making me a member of your family! :)

Housetraining: Does good – hasn’t had an accident inside - also, marking is minimal
Barking: Normal, i.e., doesn’t hesitate to bark if a noise is heard or something unusual seen – but has never barked without reason – would probably bark too much if left outside at night – and see below under behavior “Toward other dogs”
Chewing: Doesn’t seem to have any interest in chewing – often ignores rawhide chews when offered - chewing on furniture has never been a problem
Digging: Has never dug any noticeable amount
Greeting a friendly stranger: A little wary of friendly strangers/visitors – does best with adults and older children – tends to get anxious and nippy around younger or small children
Toward other dogs: He is basically friendly to most dogs - however, does not seem to like some and so he is not a good choice for a dog park – also, (this is where it gets a little crazy) he seems to get tired of being around the dogs that he likes – he will stand a few feet from one of them, or a few of them, and start barking at them nonstop – but, never attacks or fights with them - after he is put in his own separate, day time area, he is okay and stops barking – just gets a little cranky and needs some time alone
Toward cats: unknown.
While being petted: Enjoys physical closeness with familiar family members
Walking on a leash: Does very good
Riding in a car: Readily loads up in vehicle – well behaved while riding
