Schatzi's Story

Meet Schatzi! This beautiful and energetic 3-year-old Boxer mix looking for an active adopter to make her a part of their family! Schatzi is about as friendly as they come and has a complete heart of gold!  She is such a sweetie pie, and has captured the hearts of many staff members and volunteers alike here at PAWS.  This cute girl has always been very fearful and timid around children, and unfortunately Schatzi was returned to us after spending 2 years in a home when her owners found out they were expecting a baby. While losing her previous family was very hard on Schatzi, PAWS is fully committed and determined to find a forever home that is perfect for her and will show her what it’s like to be loved unconditionally!

 

Schatzi is a huge lovebug who enjoys going for walks, playing fetch with a nice, shiny new tennis ball, and pretty much any other sort of activity that involves being on the move! She is also very food and treat motivated and highly enjoys practicing all the new and fun things she’s learned in obedience training!  Schatzi is not a huge fan of sharing her toys and food with other dogs, so she would do best in the spotlight as the only canine in the home. She also loves her people so so much and is a huge fan of receiving belly rubs!  She'll roll right over so you can give her all the rubs her lovely heart desires!  Schatzi spent some much-needed time in a foster home and her foster parents absolutely adored her!  They described her as being an extremely sweet and affectionate girl who loves playing with Kongs, enjoys going for car rides, and is always up for a good quality power nap!  When nap time is over, Schatzi enjoys receiving head pets and loves snuggling up right next to her human buddies for a quiet movie night.  Give Schazti a quiet, adults-only household and an adopter who is committed to continuing her training and this outgoing gal will return the favor with lots of love, playtime, and cuddles! Won’t you give Schatzi a chance to wiggle her way into your heart? Come out and meet this sweetie today!

  • I love playing with Kong toys.
  • I’m a great walking partner and can go for miles.
  • I’ll take as much exercise as I can get!
  • I’d love to be your running buddy.
  • Did someone say ‘treat’? I’ll take them all.
  • I’m a people person! 
  • You + a tennis ball = my perfect day!

Dislikes 

  • I prefer to be the only pet in the home.
