Butkus is an 8-year-old Boxer mix who was surrendered back to us in rough shape. He was 128 lbs and is now down to 96 lbs. He will need a home with carpet and no stairs. Ideally, a fenced-in yard where he can walk around and get exercise. He can occasionally lose his balance and slip, so he does sometimes need help getting back up. We have a lift that makes it much easier to get him back up. Butkus is heartworm-positive and we are slowly working on a treatment for him. He does well with kids and other dogs with similar low-key personalities.
