Louis's Info...

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

Louis's Story...
Please meet Louis. Louis may never know how close he came to dying, but we do. We first met Louis when he was on a stray hold at Memphis Animal Services - MAS (aka the city pound.) He was sweet and calm in his kennel, and we knew we wanted to help him. So we called to let them know we would be in to adopt him and we were told, "Hold please, we are going to have to find where that dog is." And then we waited...and waited...and then the voice on the other end of the phone said, "Um, yes mam, that dog has been moved to the euthanasia room." He was literally moments from being killed. We went up to the shelter and adopted him right away, and we are so glad we did.

Now I know what you may be thinking, "why were they going to euthanize him? There must be something wrong with him." Nope, not a thing. MAS is one of the highest kill shelters in our nation. They euthanize 70% of animals who come through their doors - fluffy puppies, family dogs, they do not discriminate - owner surrenders get 0 hours and strays (like Louis) have 72 hours before they are available to be killed. If Louis is guilty of one thing, it's that he has poor timing. He came in on a holiday weekend and his 72 hours clicked away while they were closed to the public. So yes, if you are looking for a dog with a great sense of timing, Louis may not be your guy. If you are looking for a handsome hunk of a dog that loves to hug - well then, Louis may be your guy.

His adoption donation is $425 and includes his vaccinations, microchip, neuter surgery, health certificate and transportation from Memphis to you. Please email wilsonanimalrescue@yahoo.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Louis, a Eden Prairie Boxer/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Labrador Retriever for sale in Eden Prairie, or seeking a Boxer/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Eden Prairie.

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