He is a one-year-old boxer mix who loves spending time outside enjoying the sunshine and sniffing just about everything inside.

Akron enjoys exploring that neighborhood on walks and when he’s not outside he’s constantly in search of the softest spot to nap in his bed, on the couch or even just curled up next to you anywhere.

He’s a bit larger than a typical lap dog but don’t tell him that. He loves to snuggle with his people and lay his head on to your lap. Akron is a laid back loyal companion, looking for his adults-only family.
