When I asked Reilly’s owners to tell me about his personality, they described his acute awareness of and interest in his surroundings. At home he tends to follow his family around, keeping tabs on their whereabouts at all times. Outside he is curious about the natural environment. Each day, near his home in the Bay Area, he hikes for two hours through the woods with other dogs and his dog walker. Frequently stopping to sniff trailside plants, he has earned the nickname “the botanist.”
A typical boxer, Reilly is a real snuggler. He can be timid and sensitive, but also has a slightly mischievous side that comes out when he’s feeling frisky.
