Hi I’m Amari I’m a handsome 20 month old, deaf, boxer boy with some slight visual loss.  I do not see well in dim or no light. I came to Green Acres Boxer Rescue after being in a few shelters and having a few surgeries to remove a 3 inch stick from my nose. You would never know this when you met me unless my foster family told you. I’m a happy easy going boy. I love to play with my foster brothers & sister. My one foster brother is a really old 15 year old, so I pretty much leave him alone. I LOVE to be Loved!! I’m very smart and have learned: Amari, sit, no, down, water, potty, Good Boy, stop it, off (for jumping), and no barking. I sit for treats, commands, and meals.  I have absolutely no food aggression. I eat with my brothers & sister very nicely. I am a bullet though, to anyone else's food that’s not being eaten.  I am a growing boy after all. I walk (for the most part) nicely on a leash.  Sometimes I jump up, so I will need someone to continue working with me on this. I require a home with someone home more than not. I take 10mg of Fluoxetine twice a day for my anxiety.  Until, we all learn when to go out to potty, I crate lovely with a small treat.  After 4 hours though, I become a Houdini Escape Artist.  My yard needs a six ft fence and a home with a companion dog to help me hear.
