I am a Boxer Lab mix that had lost his way. Some good people helped me and tried to find if I had an owner with no luck. So I came to the shelter and am now in search of a new family. Let me tell you why you should consider me if you are in the market for a dog. I donít want to be conceited but I hear people say I am handsome. I am neutered and I know about house training. If you are not excited about those things them maybe you would also be interested in the fact that I am friendly with children, other dogs and even cats. I just really want a family; it is so nice to be with people. I got excited and hoped my rescuer could keep me and was disappointed when that didnít happen. I was told that the shelter is the place to find a family so I am here waiting. I wish I could come find you but you have to come find me. Please donít look at the other dogs, just come straight in and ask for Todd...I am anxious to go home with you. Please donít think badly of me but I am afraid of children and canít live with them. I am searching for an adult only home where I can live. The good news is I am already neutered and I am declawed. I am three years old and one of my favorite things is to be brushed. I like to eat Rachel Ray Nutrish food. I had a home but just could not adjust to the child that also lived there. It was nobodyís fault and I know I will be happier living in a kid free zone. I am being honest about my feelings I hope it does not jeopardize my chances of getting a home. Surely there is someone that will accept me at least I am hoping so. I know there are homes where children donít live; I just need to find one. Wonít you please help me and pass the word that Sammy is waiting.
