Daphne's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Daphne's Story...
Daphne arrived on 3/6/14, is about a year old and 45 lbs. of joyfulness! She loves everyone she meets, likes kids, too, and enjoys playing with other dogs. (Her boisterous play style may not be appreciated by delicate dogs though.)

Daphne accepts crating (just whined and yodeled her first day in prison), rides pretty well in a car (though she did some whining and even graced me with a melodious howl once!), and accepted her first bath calmly while bathing the handler in kisses. She does not guard food or resources from people, and is good about body handling.

Daphne really enjoys her training sessions, is easily motivated, and is learning quickly.

This confident, friendly and smiley girl is going to make some adopter very happy indeed. A home with older kids would be fine -- her playful puppy mouthing could be too much for little kids. With adults, she's quickly learning that's not a preferred choice.

Daphne is receiving obedience training at a Virginia correctional center.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond 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 Richmond 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 Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
