Hi folks! My name is Mila and I'd like to formally introduce myself. See, I'm a little nervous around new people, so a proper introduction is very important to me! My first family got me as a puppy. They saw me as a commodity more than a family member. I was bred and my puppies sold before I was ready to see them go. My family never walked me, took me to the park, or on any adventures. For the first 3 years of my life I stayed at home and in the back yard. When it was time for my family to move, they took me to the shelter and waved goodbye. You have to understand, this was the only family I'd ever known. Literally the only people I'd ever met. And they just left! Like it was no big deal! Well, it was a big deal to me. Ho-Bo Care took me in and has been working with me to introduce me to the big, wide world and all the adventures it holds for me! I am still very wary of new people - but could you blame me? Who can I trust? The good news is that once you and I are buddies, I want to be around you all the time! I'll lean right into you to get my pets and I'm very gentle, playful, and loving! Having another dog around helps me feel confident that new people aren't so scary too. If they're not scared, why should I be? Right? Now that the volunteers at Ho-Bo Care have started to socialize me and work on my confidence, I'm ready to find my foster or forever home! I'm looking for a family that is willing to accept that I still have some insecurities and will work with me to overcome them. Patience and a little know-how go a long way with me! Underneath my fears and insecurities I am a happy and wiggly boxer girl. I love to love and can't wait to find a human pal that can see the potential in me. I love to play ball and do zoomies in the backyard. I love sleeping in bed and waking up next to someone that loves me as much as I love them. PLEASE READ BELOW PRIOR TO EMAILING IN!
