One look at this handsome boy’s face and you understand how he got his name! Mugsy is a playful 14 month old brindle boy who sports his full tail! He was surrendered to the animal shelter by his owners who could not take him when they moved. Since he is fairly young and subsequently spent some of his formative months in temporary housing, he needs some work on his manners, but this guy is smart and willing to please. He’ll do just about anything for a treat! He’s already eagerly working on these manners in foster care and looking forward to getting his forever family.
Mugsy is very curious about the world around him, loves to play, chase lizards/squirrels in the backyard, go on car rides, long walks/runs and experience new things. He’s all about play, play, play. Mugsy loves people and dogs equally, but not sure how he’ll do around cats. He’s a follower that will always accompany his owners wherever they are in the home…makes a good assistant on home projects! He’s crate trained but will do best when not left in there for extended periods of time. He is trustworthy when left out of the crate as well.
As with any young boxer/large breed dog, Mugsy is high energy and would do best in a home that can meet his exercise needs and playful lifestyle. He absolutely loves playing with other big dogs, especially if there’s one already in the home. With just a little patience and work, this good-natured, smart, loving and lovable boy will be a great addition to an active home and family.
