completely come out of her shell since being picked up from the shelter.
She is now an outgoing, well behaved young girl who loves to give love!
This past holiday weekend, we spent time with family members ranging from 2
years of age to 85 years old. She was absolutely perfect with
everyone! Icey can be hesitant with new people, but once she sees you
are not going to hurt her - she warms up quickly and starts doing boxer
Icey listens extremely well. She comes when called and walks
amazing on the leash. Icey is absolutely obsessed with any and all
balls. She retrieves and drops the ball right at your feet so you can
throw it again. It is her favorite game!
Icey loves her foster brother, Gus. She never leaves his side and a
male dog is a must in Icey's forever home. When they are inside, Icey
doesn't understand it is okay to play with him. We think her past
owners may have scolded her when she tried to play in the house.
However, when they are both outside - they box, run, and play with each

doing great in her foster home and is such a lovable girl! She has
been left out of the crate during the work day and has done amazing!
Icey just naps and then goes out with her foster brother for an afternoon
walk. It has been very rewarding to see the amount of progress Icey
has made in such a short time.
Icey first arrived at her foster home a little over a week ago, she seemed
very traumatized. Any sudden movements with your arms would cause her
to crouch down and cower. It was clear that she had been mistreated in
her past. After just a few hours, though, Icey warmed right up and was
giving her foster mom lots of kisses. Despite her past life, she is a
very lovable and happy girl.
With being in heat and recovering from kennel cough, Icey's adjustment
has been slower. She is gradually warming up to the other boxer in her
foster home. Icey stays right by her foster mom's side and loves to be
involved with whatever is happening. Her favorite place to lay is
right at your feet. Icey also loves squeaky toys and playing fetch.
That is when her boxer puppy side really comes out!
Icey is such a sweet, young girl. All she wants is to start a new
life where she will be very loved and cared for. Icey is crate
trained, housebroken, and walks amazing on leash. She never pulls and
does her business right away. She has made amazing progress in just one week
and is really starting to come out of her shell!
Icey was surrendered to the shelter because she was reported to be
escaping the yard and running away. She was terrified in the shelter
environment. Icey was evaluated with another dog at the shelter and
was very timid. She is reported to have lived with a boxer in her
Icey does not appear to have been treated well in her past. She
flinches and cowers every time you go to touch her. When given time to
warm up, she will give kisses and her nub will start to wag. Her
foster mom is doing very slow introductions with the other boxer due to how
nervous Icey is right now.
Icey arrived at her foster home covered in ticks. She has tested
positive for Lyme and Ehrlichia, and has already started treatment.
Icey will need some time to warm up and for her personality to come through.
We will update her page as she settles in and we learn more about her.
