Priest is still looking for a forever home. His foster mom is hoping to find him a great match before she had to start working much longer hours in a few weeks. Priest needs someone who can spend enough time to work with him. He has been in foster for a month now and has come a long way. Priest is now a pro at going through the doggy door and he is doing well with his housebreaking. The slow eater bowl has helped him on gobbling up his food. Priest is a very affectionate little guy and is so grateful for the love and attention he is getting. He does have a lot of energy. Priest would do well as an only dog or he would also love to have another dog around who has a similar energy level.

Priest is a 5 yr old male Boxer who was surrendered to the shelter in early June. His owner did not have a place to keep Priest and the friend who was watching him eventually brought him to the shelter. Priest is reported to be good with children and other dogs. During his evaluation at the shelter, he did well with all handling and was independent when introduced to another dog. Priest was very stressed in his kennel run and was declining in the shelter environment.  The volunteers reported that once he was out of his run, Priest was very friendly and loved to give hugs. He is looking for a patient home who will help him with crate training and housebreaking. Priest will be neutered tomorrow and then will be arriving at his new foster home.
