ROXY - is an approximately one year old boxer girl. She loves to play and will do best with a dog of her size and energy. A 6 foot fence is a must. She is interested in cats but so far does not seem to be aggressive with them. She has not been tested around children but she may be too energetic for households with young children. She is spayed, microchipped and up to date with vaccinations.
UPDATE Ernie is doing awesome in his foster home and is living with 2 other dogs. Ernie would still love a family of his own. No cats!
*UPDATE* We have been working with a trainer and Ernie has been doing really well. He even had two meetings with other dogs and was very well behaved.
Look who’s back with Boxer Friends…Handsome Ernie. Ernie was adopted a couple of years ago as a young puppy and his family took him with them when they moved out of the area. Unfortunately, Ernie has recently taking to escaping their yard and his walkabouts have gotten him into trouble. It was decided that what was best for Ernie was for him to come back to Boxer Friends, Inc. (Rescue).
Ernie is about 2.5 years old and is a big boy weighing in at about 89 pounds although he could stand to lose a few pounds. We spent some time with him this morning and there wasn't a human he didn't like...Ernie was sociable with everyone. Ernie knows some commands, walked pretty well on a leash and has an awesome "helicopter tail" that goes around when he is happy. We have been told that he has been known to jump on people and he can be “mouthy”...two habits we would like to get a better handle on.
We are looking for an experienced foster for him and at this time one without another dog or cats and although he lived with 2 small children we would prefer a home with older children. Ernie is a wonderful dog that needs someone to show him some boundaries.
DOTTIE - is an approximately 9 - 10 year old girl but don't let her age deter you. She's got lots of spring in her step. Dottie is sweet, adorable and the perfect boxer package. So far she has gotten along with everyone and has not shown aggression to any other dogs.
Dottie is up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm negative and on heartworm prevention. She will be spayed before we place her. If you are interested in Dottie please fill out the foster or adoption application. Please note we do not adopt outside of our service area which is Southeast Florida.
