Iggy is a handsome, six month old, brindle Boxer/Lab mix that was relinquished by his owner after they decided their busy schedules didn't leave much time for him. The lack of socialization has left Iggy with some rough edges. Consequently, he needs consistent positive training to help him become his very best. This adolescent pup needs an adult only home with a confident dog-savvy owner who has time to spend with him. Iggy has an independent streak and reacts negatively sometimes when pushed beyond his boundaries. Praise, patience, and training will help Iggy learn he can't always get his own way. Iggy prefers wide open spaces to the tight confines of his kennel. He is fearful of being boxed into a corner and we wouldn't recommend crating him. Outside the shelter, Iggy is much more relaxed and has a blast playing with volunteers. He especially loves running in the open field next to our pond. If you enjoy an active lifestyle, Iggy would love to be your faithful companion. He has lots of energy and is always ready for adventure. Iggy is not fully housebroken as he lived most of his previous life outdoors. A fenced in yard will assist with housetraining and give him a safe place to play. Iggy is picky about his canine friends and would prefer to be the only dog in the home. Iggy is a great dog with so much potential. Are you ready to meet him?
