Kadir is a very happy vision impaired Boxer mix. He meets people swell, not so much with other dogs. He enjoys rope toys and searching for squeaky balls which he chews on until they no longer squeak. He is house broken and sits nicely for car rides.
He now comes when called, except when someone is at the door, then his duties as official dog greeter take over. We are working on not jumping on people, as this is how he greets most everyone, as well as not mouthing his friends while playing or excited. He will sometimes sit on command, if he feels like sitting.
He does have some dominance traits, so a first time dog owner who could be intimidated by a muscular 50 pound bundle of love might not be a good match. He enjoys spending time with people, he will follow you around from room to room, so someone who works from home or is home a lot will be a plus.

He’s not cat or dog friendly/tolerant. Kadir is best as an only pet.
He is tolerant of the cat he lives with – to be safe she has an escape route and has Kadir trained. She lies in wait and when he walks by she swats him (no claws but always a surprise). He stays away and doesn’t chase after her.
Kadir goes for walks on the leash and listens to commands (stop, slow, walk with me) but has a tendency to great others enthusiastically and wants to face kiss. He does not do well with other dogs regardless of size but cries to join them at the dog park. Loves to have his butt rubbed, is happy to sit with you or on you, and adores playing tug with you and his rope toys. He can fetch the ball, return it and will drop the ball on command, knows sit, stay(short time), up (onto bed or truck seat), and sits automatically to get his harness and leash put on in preparation for walk or ride. He adores riding in the car, traveling is never a problem. And he is always ready for having his picture taken.
His preference is to be with you but will stay at home and wait for your return with patience and without problems.
