Holly is a sweet and playful Boxer mix. She loves to go for walks and run around. She also loves to lay beside you on the couch and be petted or gently cuddled. Holly does ok with some other dogs if introduced slowly. She does need to work on her basic training and manners, but all in all is a very good dog. She would do best in a home with children 10 and older (may be a little too rambunctious for younger children).
The shelter, located at 4 Sarl Drive in Salem, N.H. is open on Wednesdays, 3 to 7 p.m.; Thursdays noon to 7 p.m. and Friday through Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.
