Boxer / Australian Shepherd
Age: Adult

Meet Sargent This handsome boy was surrendered by his soldier daddy. When leaving he mentioned in passing that Sargent doesn't like confined spaces. Sadly, nearly five years later, Sargent is in exactly that - the confines of a concrete kennel. We love this boy so much, but the shelter life is taking a toll on him. He needs a second chance desperately. Sargent is nearly six years old now. He's thought to be a Boxer/Australian Shepherd mix. He's a handsome boy with a tan and white coat and one brown and one partial blue eye. His ears are expressive and he looks at you as if he knows what you're saying. Sargent is on the bigger side weighing 72 pounds. Sargent is a calm and relaxed dog when he's in the play yards. He loves the fresh air, feeling the grass under his paws and the sun on his face. You can just see him relax. We give him as much time outside as we can. Sargent seems to be house-broken. He's smart and knows some commands like sit and shake. Sargent has a lot of energy and will enjoy being part of an active family that's able to keep his body and mind going. Sargent has a high prey drive. He'll need to be an only pet to start. Time away and hooman bonding to decompress could change that. For his new family though it will be best to let him go at his own pace after all he's been through. Sargent seems to be afraid of men when he meets them initially. He likes women though. For the person or family interested in Sargent, a few visits may be necessary for him to feel safe. Sargent fears stressful situations and that's exactly what he's in. Sargent wasn't expecting the turn that his life took. He's hanging in there, but we know it's not easy on him. If you're looking for a wonderful companion dog to welcome into your family, come meet Sargent.
