Hi! My name is Sweet Serendipity! Foster mom calls me that because one day I found myself in a shelter, sad, alone and pregnant. She saw me and just a few moments later OPH saw me too and asked her to take me in...SWEET SERENDIPITY! I raised my babies, but found out I had heartworms. So OPH will treat me for that before I can move into my forever home. I think I will be ready just in time for Christmas! I don't like to tell people my age and weight, but if you must know I am 3 years old and 40lbs. I am not your average boxer size, I am more like the size of a larger boston terrier...maybe that's where my ears came from!
I really like other dogs. I currently live with dogs of all sizes, my best friend is a 100lb puppy. We like to wrestle. You can check out how I am with other dogs in a household by clicking here!
I have learned my basic commands and practice every day. When my foster family goes to work they put me in a crate next to my friends. I like my crate when my humans aren't home. I stay safe in there and take my naps.
I live with my foster parents and they have grandchildren who come to see me often. I really like when the kids come to see me. They drop food for me, they throw my ball for me and they let me chase them from time to time. I don't require much, just a warm loving home and someone who likes to throw the ball, but doesn't mind if I don't bring it right back. You see, I like to run after the ball and then play soccer for a bit before I give the ball back to you. I really like toys that squeak, I get silly when I hear that squeaker!
If you think I might be a good fit for you, please don't delay and apply to adopt me. I will be waiting!
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease and has since been treated. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.
