Meet Trixie, an 8 year old Boxer mix who is looking for her furever retirement home. The moment your eyes meet hers, there is no way you can’t instantly fall in love with this gentle soul. While she enjoys napping quite a bit, the moment she sees her leash, she jumps with excitement. She is quite polite when she meets other dogs and people on the street, however, the cats, squirrels and bunnies are certainly a big interest so she will pull a bit.

Being a senior dog, playing with other canine friends at the off leash parks aren’t of much interest, but she does love walking and running free. Her recall is excellent and she enjoys the freedom of roaming.

At home she is looking for anyone to cuddle with, a true lap dog that will snuggle and keep you company whenever she can find a lap to rest her head on. She is obedient when it comes to lying on her on her own bed, but much prefers the attention of a human. The doorbell can be a little exciting for her and she likes to welcome guests with some barking. With the proper correction, this can be worked out, her temperament is to please so with a bit of discipline she will figure it out quickly.

Presently, Trixie shows signs of separation anxiety and because she wants to spend every moment with her people. She gets quite upset when she is left all alone. She has been on medication for a few weeks and it is working well. If you are interested in adopting Trixie, the perfect home will be a quieter one with someone home. It will be important to be committed to helping her through her transition of a new home, and figuring out what helps her stress level when you have to leave. Her foster mom has a few tips for this! This girl will melt your heart, and will truly bring happiness to the right home. *Trixie would have to be cat tested.

She has a very small mass that the vet isn’t overly concerned about – it just requires monitoring.
