Mary Ann

Gender: Female
Breed: Boxer
Secondary Breed: Mix
Status: Adoptable

A SWEET SPIRIT LEARNING TO LOVE: 4 Years old / 39 lbs.

Hello, my name is Mary Ann! I came to Mostly Mutts from animal control, and it took me a bit of time to get comfortable. I got to spend some time in the prison/foster training program and learned a lot! Now I’m in a great foster home while I wait for you to find me!

• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS: I recently met dogs at Mostly Mutts, and I really opened up with them. I also love playing with and cuddling with the dogs in my foster home, especially the younger, more playful types. My trainer thinks another dog in my home will REALLY benefit me and my foster thinks I would not be happy without another playful dog in the home as I depend on them for confidence and tend to shut down without this interaction. If you have a nice playful dog at home already, let’s meet! / No cats as I have shown prey drive to chase them, not in a fun way. / I met a nice boy and a girl around 10 years old at Mostly Mutts, but I did not interact with them. I was too shutdown at the shelter to let my true self show.

• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL: I am a sweet girl, but I was very scared and unsure at the shelter, so it took time for my true nature to emerge. I have been gaining confidence in my foster home. At first I only wanted to go in my foster’s yard if the other dogs were out there, but now I enjoy just playing with my toys and people in the yard. My foster says I am super gentle and sweet. My soulful eyes are sure to charm you. I feel more comfortable with women and people who are very calm and of shorter stature, so I just need a little extra adjustment time around taller people and men. Now that I am comfortable with my foster, I have become a great home office companion and even enjoy being with my person more than the other dogs sometimes. I thrive on structure and once I know what to expect and that I can trust you, just watch my amazing true self emerge. Please just be patient with me as I adjust to my new surroundings and family life. / My energy level is 6 – 7 with another dog, 5 – 6 with people I am comfortable with and a 2 when I get shut down around people who make me nervous.

• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY: While I was a student in the Mostly Mutts University training program, I learned the ‘sit’, ‘down’, stay’, ‘come’, ‘leave it’ and ‘place’ commands. I also use proper door etiquette and have good leash manners. / My crate manners were good at Mostly Mutts, though I was timid and a bit hesitant of coming out of it for my walks. I was making progress – from not coming out at all, to coming out with some patience and coaxing with Pup-Peroni. I now go in on command in my foster home as well as sit in there nicely when the cats are out. / I was having some accidents on the shelter schedule – likely related to my not wanting to leave my crate very easily. My potty skills were good in the prison/foster training program. My foster mom said that I had accidents the first week as I adjusted, but now my potty manners are great. This may happen in my new home too. Please continue to be consistent with me on a good schedule.

• LIKES/DISLIKES: I really love being with people, after a shy start at the shelter, and now I give the best ‘thank you’ hugs! I love playing and napping with the dog friends I have met. I like going for walks and hikes and being outside, and I am starting to see how fun toys can be! / I am frightened of trucks and loud vehicles, so hopefully we can find a quieter place to walk than the roads around the shelter. I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get enough love, attention, exercise, and training.

• MEDICAL: I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped and spayed.

I am looking for a loving home, where I will be a cherished family member! My adoption fee is $299.00, and I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
