Sebastian is getting settled into his foster home and just like his previous write-up states, his boxer wiggles are never ending. What it doesn’t say is that his gentle boxer kisses and desire to snuggle also seem never ending. For getting off to such a rough start in life and being so young he has great manners in the house. He is house trained, crate trained, and knows “sit” “wait” and “go to bed”. He doesn’t bother with anything in the house other than his toys (he loves toys!). At night, he lets his foster mom tuck him in under a warm blanket and sleeps on the dog bed on the floor in a loft area near the main bedroom and doesn’t make a peep throughout the night.
He is still getting the hang of walking on a leash, but when his foster mom uses a harness he is wonderful to walk. He isn’t bothered by dogs on our walks and did well on his initial dog tests, but so far his foster-fur sibling (a boxer-pit mix) is not a fan of him and he is not a fan of her, so they have just been hanging out in separate rooms. His foster mom will update again soon.
Sebastian wants to say hello and is very excited to ring in the new year with AABR! You see, 2017 was a rough year for this handsome boy. At the age of around a year, Sebastian was left behind in an abandoned apartment building in Philadelphia. Even after he was seized by an animal control officer, he found himself in the custody of the Philadelphia Animal Cruelty Division for holding until further information was uncovered regarding his case. No owner came forward to claim Sebastian. On New Year’s Eve, he was finally able to be released into the care of AABR. Sebastian has just arrived at his new foster home. He is very friendly with people and did excellent on his evaluation with another dog. We are told that his boxer wiggles are never ending! We will post more information once his foster family gets to know Sebastian better.
