This is two year old Yvette. Yvette loves her rope toy, and enjoys tugging on it or running after it. She knows the game of fetch really well and enjoys playing with her tennis ball in the yard. She will bring you her toys and knows "drop it". Yvette enjoys play time but equally enjoys laying by her person and getting loved on. She makes an awesome walking partner because of her leash manners, unless there is a cat or squirrel around. She is still learning to control her excitement and not get distracted by smaller critters that may be around the neighborhood on her daily walks. She is very alert, but is getting more relaxed each day. She knows basic commands (sit, stay, down, drop it) and is very polite when waiting for her food and treats. She loves everyone she meets, even of the smaller kind! Yvette has visited with a 17 month old and gently took treats from the toddler and gave tons of kisses in return! She is slowly learning what "enough" means, because sometimes she gives too many kisses! Yvette also hung out with a 6 and 7 year old boy for a few hours and fit right in! She wasn't interested in their toys, only her own, which she shared with the boys nicely. She was happy to play fetch and tug with them. She allowed the boys to walk her on leash and she disregarded the boys' own game of football and basketball. Yvette is choosy about her doggie friends so she may do best as an only dog.
As Yvette is always looking for an adventure, her adoptive home should have a 6 foot fence, as she easily clears a 4 foot one.
Yvette stays in her crate during work hours and at first she didn't like being left in her crate but she's getting used to the daily routine and beginning to realize she is not going to be stuck in the crate forever. Yvette sleeps in her crate through the night (in the same room as her people and foster siblings) and goes in it on her own with anticipation of her special treat. Yvette is found lying in her crate quietly when her people return from work. This petite 54 pounds of wiggles is a well-rounded boxer and has lots of love and joy to bring.
She is being fostered by Jocelyn.
Yvette currently needs a new foster home and will do best in a home with no other dogs.
