More About Boxer Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (medium coat). Xena 485667 47 lbs. HW- Hi! Hi! Hi! I’m Xena! I’m full of life and full of energy. I’m looking for someone active that can keep up with me… maybe someone that walks a lot or jogs / runs. I''ll fit in well with an active lifestyle – I’m a wash and wear kind of girl! I''ve a short, slick coat that doesn’t require much grooming at all. I like treats! In fact, I LOVE treats… a lot! A strong, patient human with a pocket full of treats could get me trained in no time. Since I’m so exuberant, I don’t always realize my own strength. Therefore, it might be best if I was in a home without small children. If you’re looking for a hiking buddy or running partner that gives good kisses, please come see me at FCAS!

I NEED A RESCUE GROUP TO STEP UP FOR ME YOLANDA 482972 5 YEARS OLD HEARTWORM POSITIVE 58 LBS I don''t know why my people moved away and left me. I was alone in the backyard with my fur brother for days without food or water. We were really scared and finally a nice man came and picked us up. I get lots of food and water now. The people are really nice, but I''m still a little afraid. My favorite thing is when they take me outside. That is all I''ve ever known so it feels strange to live in a small kennel. They tell me that I could have a chance to live inside with a nice person. They say this person will take good care of me and I''ll never be abandoned again. Could this be true? Are you that person to give me a chance?
