Marshall, NC: Boxer Needs a Home

Her name is Izzabella, or Izzy for short. She's approximately 4 years old, spayed, microchipped, UTD on vaccines, HW negative. She is deaf, was trained to hand signals and crate trained when I fostered her. How much of that was retained in the new home I'm not sure. She is being returned due to "issues". She needs to be in a
one dog only home or in a foster home that has time and energy to spend with her. She did well for me here with my Dane/Boxer mix and my Bullmastiff but it took a few weeks of them working out their differences and learning their place on the totum pole. I currently have too many shelter fosters to take her back in. She LOVES people and kids and was wonderful with my 4 small children. She's a smart girl and like any boxer will get into trouble if she's bored. Exercise, attention, and a person willing to teach her and learn from her is what's going to be key to finding her the perfect home.

The boxer rescue that she is with now has begged and begged for a one dog only home to foster to but to no avail. No one wants to see her crated a majority of the time as it's only going to make her slide downhill. Can anyone help?
