Meet Schatzi! This beautiful and energetic 2 ½ year-old Boxer mix looking for an active adopter to make her part of their family! Schatzi is about as friendly as they come and absolutely adores any adults who have the good fortune of being introduced to her. She has always been very fearful of children and unfortunately this sweet girl was returned to PAWS 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 committed and determined to finding her the perfect new home.
Schatzi love walks and pretty much any other sort of physical activity! She is very treat motivated and greatly enjoys practicing her obedience training. Although she is social with other dogs, Schatzi tends to guard her food and toys closely and will need to be the only pet in the home. She also becomes very agitated when left alone and will need an adopter who is not gone for long periods of time. 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?
