Scrappy's Info...

Scrappy's Story...
Scrappy is an 8-10 year old boxer mix gentleman. He arrived at Recycled Doggies in style by plane a little before Christmas. When Scrappy first arrived, we couldn't believe how sweet , how loving, how absolutely adorable he was. But as we got to know Scrappy and he got more comfortable in his foster home, issues related to his awful past started to become apparent. He was super protective of his toys and food and his foster family too, and acted out when he felt that these things - things he had never had before and now loved very much - were being threatened by the other dogs in his foster home. Scrappy had never been part of a family- he spent much of his life living in a plastic airline crate in a garage until he was finally rescued. He was starving for food, attention, love, and medical care. We got his medical issues treated and he is looking great now that he's been eating good food. Then we tackled the harder issues - teaching this older gentleman how to be part of a family, part of a pack of dogs, how to be a dog. Scrappy started training and started learning how to share his toys, and how to drop his toys when instructed. Then he started to learn how to meet new dogs and let them meet him. Then he moved in with our trainer so he could learn to live with other dogs and kids too. And Scrappy is blossoming! He's such a delightful dog. When you meet him and he shows you just how happy he is to meet you, your heart will melt. We were so sad when we realized the damage the years of abuse and neglect had caused, and we are so thrilled at how well he is now doing! Scrappy is finally ready to start interviewing potential forever families. His trainer loves him very much and will help make sure that Scrappy is successful in his new home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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