About Rookie

Boxer / Lab
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Rookie is a male Boxer/Lab mix with a big heart and a sweet loving disposition. This rescued stray adores people and is very friendly and affectionate. He's big on hugs and sloppy kisses! This handsome hunk weighs 69 lbs and is estimated to be 4 1/2 years old. An active large pup, Rookie is the perfect companion for an adult or family with older children. He loves playing outdoor games like fetch and tug of war. He would make a great trail buddy once he fine tunes his leash skills. He has a foot fetish we are working to correct. Rookie thinks it is great fun to make you dance a jig as he nips at your shoes. Through positive reinforcement, we are teaching him how to properly walk on a leash. Other than that quirk, he's a great dog and fun to be around. Rookie keeps a clean kennel for the most part, seems nights are when he has accidents (it has a lot to do with our shelter hours) a fenced in backyard will give him a safe place to run, play and the confidence to work on his house training. Rookie has had limited contact with the other pups at the shelter but has done well with other dogs that enjoy rough and tumble play. If you currently own a young playful pup, we can arrange a playdate to see if they are compatible. Rookie is ready to begin the best chapter of his life. Are you ready to meet your new best buddy?
