Baby Bettina's Info...

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

Baby Bettina's Story...
(Pictures coming soon) Bettina is one of a litter of eight pups (Bethany, Beatrice, Bradley, Blake, Bettina, Benedict, Bonnie, and Barry) that are sweet as sweet can be. They were surrendered to a shelter with their mama, Brooke, who is stated, by the previous owner, to be a Boxer/German Shepherd Dog mix. It appears they may also have Australian Shepherd in them. Whatever their mix, we believe they will be medium-sized dogs when full grown.

Just over five weeks old right now, they will be available for adoption beginning the first week in January when they are eight weeks old and their mama will be more than happy to see them off. They are already learning to sleep in a crate through the night and are showing great signs to be easily house-trained!

We are taking applications right now for the pups and their mama. If you are interested in adopting one of these sweeties, please go to the Adoption Process page of our website, throwmeabonedogrescue.org. There you can read about what we need from you and find the link for the online adoption application.

All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live.

Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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