Meet Buster, a well-behaved boxer/labrador mix who’s about 10 years old. He’s a fairly larger fellow, weighing 57 pounds. He was transferred to the SPCA of Texas from Dallas Animal Services after he was surrendered there because his previous family had a new baby. He is very sweet, loving and laid-back, loves to go for walks, and is wonderful on his leash. He knows “sit,” and will happily do so for a treat. He is potty-trained, crate-trained and rides well in the car. Buster has been neutered, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. #151876
