Date Available for Adoption: 03-11-2020
I am a 8 year old, Spayed Female, Boxer/Pitbull Mix.
I’m currently in a wonderful foster home that is making me the best adoptable pup I can be, read what they have to say:
Hey, I’m Shay, but my nicknames are LL Drool Shay, Shay-Z, and DolShay and Gabbana. My profile pic compliments my personality – cool, laid-back, and relaxed. If you want to meet me, you’ll find me at my foster family’s house poolside, double fistin’ my chicken broth cosmopawlitan and frozen strawberry barkarita while catching up on back issues of Rolling Bone. 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.
Don’t tell my doggie friends at the shelter, but I have an advantage being in a foster home. My foster mom and dad say that I’ve made so much progress since they brought me home, and I’ve learned a ton. 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 learn quick. A couple milestones I conquered in my foster home was learning to like my crate (I wasn’t a fan at first) and getting over some pesky separation anxiety. I have to admit, I was unsure of myself for a while, but I’m finally becoming comfortable and I’m ready to start the next chapter of my life – settling in with my forever family. So I guess what I’m trying to say is I’m a pretty balanced dog, and I’m proud of how far I’ve come.
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 70 pounds. I’m a real lazy dog with low energy. 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 love belly rubs and rolling in the grass.
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. I also don’t think I’d do well with small children in the home. I’d prefer a one or two-person household. I’m older, and I want to be in a home where things are quiet. 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!
If you’re interested in meeting me, call the shelter or message my foster mom, Crystal Cudnik Weimer.
