I am a 8 year old, Spayed Female, Boxer/Pitbull Mix.
Hey, I’m Shay, but my nicknames are LL Drool Shay, Shay-Z, and DolShay and Gabbana. Did you know I’m the longest resident at the shelter? Well, technically I’m not a resident since I’m in a foster home, but I’ve been looking for my forever home the longest.
I am crate-trained, house-trained, and know many commands. I know, Sit, Paw, Down, and Stay. I’m working on my Come command, but I guess I can be stubborn sometimes (at least that’s what I hear Mom and Dad talk about), but I’m getting there. I’ve also been killin’ my Place Command training. For those of you that don’t know, that’s when my Mom or Dad tell me to relax in a certain place and I can’t come off that place until they give me the go ahead. I also wait for my command to go through doorways and in and out of the car. Mom and Dad also make me wait patiently for my breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I guess you could say I’m a pretty smart and balanced dog.
I’m estimated to be eight years old. If you don’t like senior dogs, I can be five or six. If you’re awesome and do like senior dogs, well I’ll be eight then. They think I’m a pit/boxer mix, and I’m about 85 pounds. I love my walks (I’m great on a leash and will walk right next to you), but when I get home, I just want to cuddle up on the couch or a dog bed and be close to my human. I’d be a perfect Netflix buddy. I’m low maintenance and don’t require much. I just want to be part of the family. I’m great in a car and would be a perfect travel companion, just as long as you take me to McDonalds to get some nuggies. I also love peanut butter kongs in my crate for night night time.
I am a bit reactive to other animals. My foster family is helping me with that, but for now, I’d do best in a home with no other pets. I need a responsible owner who will continue working with me so I can be the best version of myself. Although other animals make me nervous, I love people! I love when my foster family has guests. I love meeting new people, but because of my relaxed nature, I don’t think I’d do best in a home with small children. Also, I have a silly side that I don’t show to just anyone. I made my foster mom and dad wait a few weeks before showing them how goofy I can be. Maybe you’ll get to see it one day!
