About Alexander

Adoption Fee: $250
Boxer / Treeing Walker Coonhound
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

Alexander is a playful, strong and extremely sensitive, one-year-old, 59-pound, tan and white Boxer/Hound-mix with gorgeous warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian. Alexander is being fostered in an apartment with a small dog and cat and doing beautifully! He loves all dogs and cats and is great at doggie daycare and the dog park. This boy looks right into your eyes and heart. He came from a home where he lived with another dog, a cat and a four-year-old boy. The family was in turmoil and had to let go of their latest canine acquisition. He wasn't very well-treated in his former home, so he needs some training to boost his confidence. He's a quick learner, is housebroken, and quietly crate-trained. He is well-behaved in the home if he gets enough exercise, and loves to cuddle up in a soft bed and chew his bones. Alexander didn't have a lot of exposure to the outside world as he rarely went on walks in his old home. Seeing squirrels, bunnies, mice, rats and other dogs on his walks excite him, and strangers can sometimes make him nervous. He lived in a home with a lot of loud voices and abuse, so a raised voice or a raised hand make him nervous. He's a loving and sensitive guy. Alexander is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped, fecal-tested, de-wormed, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. He is being fostered in Chicago. To meet and possibly adopt him, please contact for an adoption application. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Petraits. Training will be included with his adoption to get him off on the right start in his new home.
