Ricky's Info...

I am up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Ricky's Story...
Ricky is an 8 week old Boxer mix weighing only 5lbs currently. We are unsure what he may be mixed with so we are unsure of his exact size full grown. He is very playful and sweet and loves all dogs, cats and kids!
Puppies take a few months to be fully potty trained. Please do not expect a puppy to be fully potty trained until about 4 months of age. Remember....Puppies chew EVERYTHING! Puppies can cry at night. Puppies need a lot of attention and training!
We discourage puppies going into homes that would be left for 8 hours a day while you are at work as it is detrimental to their socialization needs and potty training. These puppies will need discipline and training for the next year of their life. We are hoping we can find a home that is wiling to make this commitment for the duration of the pup's life!
Ricky has been examined by a vet and received his first puppy shots/deworming. He will get the rest of his puppy shots, big boy shots, and will be neutered and microchipped once old enough by Hope 4 Paws. An adoption application is required via email prior to meeting any Hope 4 Paws dog in its foster home. In most cases, breeds stated in the posting are merely our best educated guess as we do not know the history of many dogs that come into the rescue.

The adoption application is available at www.hope4paws.com.
The application can be emailed to Molly at hallamart@sbcglobal.net
The adoption fee of $275 covers all vetting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ricky, a Plainfield Boxer/Pug puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Pug for sale in Plainfield, or seeking a Boxer/Pug puppy from a breeder in Plainfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Plainfield 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 Plainfield 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/Pug breeders who help with Boxer/Pug rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Plainfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
