J.D.'s Story...
This big boxer boy is 3-yr-old J.D. (aka: Junkyard Dog). J.D.'s life before coming to us was a hard one. He rarely had human contact and was left to spend the hottest days of summer and coldest nights of winter at the end of a chain. Many of those spent without food or water and his chain often so tangled up he would be forced to lay in his own poop.

Coming with us was a drastic change for J.D. and very scary. Never being inside of a house before, he would get very nervous and try to go through the slider to get outside. He would hide and avoid human contact. J.D. has come a long way in a short time. Today, he loves to be in the house and is eager to learn how to be a boxer. He's got the boxer bean dance mastered with his new found excitement when he sees you.

J.D. knew nothing so we've had to start from the beginning with him while at the same time not push him as he needed to get comfortable in his new surroundings. He's doing great with the other dogs--he sits back and watches them play but is starting to join in occasionally. We've went 9 days now with no accidents in the house. He is also learning to sit until his food bowl is down and told ok.

J.D. is a big boy and doesn't know his own size so he would do best in a home without small children. He needs a family that is going to be patient, and committed to providing J.D. with continued obedience training as he learns to be a good boxer boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

J.D., a Boise Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer for sale in Boise, or seeking a Boxer dog from a breeder in Boise.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Boise already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Boise breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer breeders who help with Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boise paves the way for another one to be saved.
