Gia's Story...
Hello! My name is Gia. I am just 11 months old. I am a spayed female who gets along well with other dogs and cats. I only weigh 37 lbs and I'm housetrained. I am quiet, gentle and sweet, but I love to play. I will entertain myself, throwing my toys around and pouncing on them. I like to play with other dogs too. I'm smart and know basic commands, such as "sit" and "shake." I want to snuggle with you on the couch and sleep in bed with you at night. I am well behaved and I listen very well. I'm a good girl looking for someone to love. Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, neuter, 30 days of free pet insurance and microchip.

    NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

    Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.


    Adoption Process:
    Complete the application at We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

    Why Adoption is a Great Option

    Gia, a Troy Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Boxer for sale in Troy, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Boxer dog from a breeder in Troy.

    1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy 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 Troy 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Boxer breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
