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! :) Health/Behavior Profile Breed or Mix: Boxer/Terrier Mix Age: Young (estimated DOB 03-12-10) Anticipated size: full grown at about 35 lbs. Sex: Male Health Basic Vaccinations: Distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza, parvovirus and bordetella (kennel cough), current until April 5, 2015 (are being renewed by the end of this week) Rabies Vaccination: Renewed by 380 Animal Hospital on November 15, 2014 with three year vaccination - current until November 15, 2017 Spay or Neuter: Performed by Texas Coalition for Animal Protection at Collin County Animal Shelter on April 10, 2012 Microchip: Implanted on June 1, 2012 - service provided by 24PetWatch.com Grooming needs: Minimal, no brushing normally needed. Special needs: Protection from cold weather Medical issues: None known Behavior Activity Level: Moderate normally - will kick into “high” when playing Meal time: Has never displayed any food aggression to other dogs 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 For further information please email the address in the box to the right. Anyone interested in our dogs/cats will be required to fill out an adoption application. We do not adopt to anyone living out of the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

We review all applications received to ensure that the animal and the applicant are a good match based on our personal experiences with the animal. These animals live in our homes with us so we are familiar with their habits and behaviors. To fill out an application online or to find out more information about our adoption process, just go to www.friscohumanesociety.com and click on the 'Adoption Application' link.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
