A volunteer writes: Someone had a sense of humor when they named our boy Mayweather. A boxer mix named after a well-known boxer! Cute! But, that’s where the similarity ends, as our Mayweather is a lover, not a fighter. He’s gentle, snuggly, gives stand up hugs, wags his little stump of a tail and wiggles his butt when I pet him. He sits as soon as he sees a treat in my hand, takes it gently, and then my reward is another hug! Mayweather is soooooooooo housetrained, he peed for so long once we were outside the puddle was still there 20 minutes later! Whew, he’d been holding it for a long time. He’s pretty good on the leash, pulls slightly at first but settles down once bathroom business is done. Gorgeously groomed and clearly well cared for, his walking log is already filled with positive comments from volunteers who have spent time with him. He’s a big bruiser of a boy looking for a new home and people to love. Shouldn’t that be you?
KNOWN HISTORY: None
Unaltered Male, Stray
Look: 1. Dog lightly climbed front legs onto assessor’s lap to lick face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth.
Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, a bit distracted
Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog does not pull back paw, sniff’s assessor’s hand.
Toy 1: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy.
Summary: Mayweather displayed no concerning behavior during his SAFER assessment. He maintained a calm and gentle demeanor, at times placing front legs gently on assessor’s lap.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
3/6: When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center Mayweather is tolerant of polite greeting. He becomes uncomfortable with and corrects play.
3/7: Mayweather greets a calm dog politely.
3/8: Mayweather is polite and tolerant when engaging in a pen with male and female dogs.
During his initial medical exam, Mayweather was very social and allowed handling.
We have no history on Mayweather so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
