Hi meet Peanut. She is the tiniest boxer I have ever seen, hence the name! She is absolutely adorable. She has kennel cough and tested positive for Lymes so because of the kennel cough I have to keep her separated from my crew. She is on meds and once she is well I will do introductions. I don't see it being a problem. She did briefly meet them through a gate and wanted so bad to play. She immediately went in a play bow her whole body shaking with excitement. Peanut has been friendly with a few people that have been over, ran right up to be petted and loved. I even think she would be fine with kids. Maybe not toddlers until she learns not to jump (she's only about 40lbs) but I think a kid who is steady on their feet would be fine. She seems to love everyone and everything. She is just craving love and needs to be a part of a family in all aspects.
She has not been with me long but I can say she does not like being left alone. Because I have to separate her, she is sometimes alone in the room. She will bark until someone returns then is fine. I am not sure if this is separation anxiety or her just being in new surroundings but I am hopeful once she meets the crew, this will subside. She is good at night once the lights are out and everyone is in bed, she sleeps until we wake up.
The video we received from the shelter tested her with a cat. The cat was in a crate and she could care less that the cat was in the room. She sniffed and walked away. I do not have cats so I cannot test that theory but she may be ok with kitties. She walks well on a leash and doesn't pull. She seems to be potty trained if taken out on a regular basis. She takes treats gently. I am having trouble getting good pictures of her because she i s wiggly dancing girl never stands still! But I promise to keep trying.
I will post more once I get to know her better but if you think Peanut may be a match for your family, please put in an application, I would love to discuss her with you.
