Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed. 12-20-12 Maizie is very wary when first meeting a stranger. When she gets to know you, she is a very sweet girl. She can jump a 6 ft fence but does come when called. She is good with other dogs but not cats. She needs to be adopted locally. *All dogs spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and rabies, and on heartworm prevention. ADOPTION FEE SCHEDULE Newborn to 8 months - $350 and a spay/ neuter contract if they are not done 8 months (plus 1 day) to 1 year - $300 1 year(plus 1 day) to 2 years - $275 2 years(plus 1 day) to 5 years $250 All boxers 5 years (plus 1 day) and over - $150 All boxer mixes - $150 *A $25 fee is added to dogs with a microchip Maize is a Boxer mix who was brought to us so we could find her the home she deserves. She is a happy, fun loving, girl who is looking for a forever home. Maize loves to play with her toys and gets along with all other dogs that she has been around, but she can't be around cats. She can get over a chain link fence but not a privacy fence. Maizie is a very sweet and nice family dog who needs a home. Please fill out an application so that she too can have her own home. NOTE: We are not a shelter or pound. We don't have a facility. We are all volunteers who love the Boxers. We have jobs and families and don't have "regular business hours". For this reason, we don't show the dogs until an application has been submitted. Submitting an application does not obligate you to adopt a Boxer, but it does tell us that your interest in rescue is serious. We thank you for being considerate of our time and efforts.

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.
