Hi, my name is Waylon and I’m a 3.5 year old Australian Cattle Dog-Boxer mix. Even though I’m around 55 pounds, I’ll still climb on your lap to cuddle! I’m a very mellow boy who would just love to watch a movie on the couch with you. I’m housebroken and crate trained, though I haven’t chewed anything up when I’ve been left alone outside my crate. I like to play fetch and I know some commands like sit and shake. I’m a bit timid and wary of strangers, and I’ll speak up to let you know I’m nervous, but once I get to know you, I warm right up and want all the attention! If you are petting me and accidentally stop, I’ll paw at your arm until you keep going. I’m also quite a “sunbeam dog” who loves laying out in the sunshine or sitting by the window.
I would probably do best as an only dog as other dogs in my space can sometimes irritate me. I don’t react to other dogs on walks, but I am easily spooked by cars or loud noises. I’m working on it, but when I get scared on walks I usually pancake or try to bolt. So adopter must have a yard, ideally fenced in yard or that is willing to keep helping me improve on walks as I am very fearful of cars. I’m not sure how I’d do around cats, but I think I’d do fine in a family with kids. If you are looking for a couch potato to spend lazy Sunday afternoons with, apply for me on our website!
