Georgia is an affectionate tan Boxer/Lab mix who is about 3 years old. She is a nice manageable size, and currently weighs about 40lbs. She is gentle, mellow in her crate, intelligent and has good manners. She loves to take leash walks and is very easy to walk, never pulling and often checking back to make sure you are enjoying yourself as much as she is!
This sweet slender girl is eager to have her own human to cuddle up and to play with her.
Georgia is just a lovely girl who clearly fell on hard times. She was recently rescued from a high kill shelter in Southern California and is understandably a little bit fearful and anxious sometimes from her recent stray days. Initially she can feel a bit uneasy and possibly be barky when meeting new dogs, but she redirects easily once she learns what is expected of her.
She loves ladies and is currently still a bit fearful of strange men, although she has very quickly taken to her male handlers who are gentle with her. She would do best with older children (probably over 12yrs old) since she can still get scared quite easily by loud noises or lots of activity going on around her. We are not sure how she would be around cats (not tested), but we think she may be fine with dog-savvy cats after proper introduction.
A person who has some experience with timid dogs will love to see this girl blossom, as she already has since we rescued her, even in a boarding environment. Initially a relatively mellow, low stimulus environment may be best for her.
Most of all she needs love and attention – but she will quickly fit in with family life and will not be a high maintenance dog.
She is a sweetheart that would make a wonderful new family member!
