Facts about Silas

  • Breed: Boxer/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Silas was rescued from a terrible hoarding case in 2013. He is very protective of the people and dogs he cares for, can be very cautious at first, and takes a while to warm up to you. Silas seems a little intimidating due his large size and his deep bark, but that's just the outside . He actually loves to cuddle and is very affectionate. Silas gets along well with other dogs. He is not high energy like boxers typically are.

He is very intelligent and is always willing to learn something new.

Silas was rescued with 32 other dogs from a hoarding situation and is now safe at a dog boarding facility .

We do not know how Silas would do with kids since he has not been around any that we know of.

Silas is ready to find a home who will care for him and love him and show him what it is like to be part of a family!

About Cherished K-9 All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Big or small we love them all!

Our mission is to rescue and re-home neglected, abused and abandoned dogs.

We are a small rescue that picks up dogs off the streets and helps them find their homes or helps them find new homes.

We also help find homes for dogs that have been relinquished by their owners. In addition, we pull last-chance dogs from our local animal shelter.

Our goal is to assist the rescue community in our area in decreasing the euthanasia rate at the shelter.

Our dogs live in foster homes while waiting to be adopted. Our fosters love and care for them as if they are their own dogs.

We cannot do what we do without your help! Foster, Adopt or Donate today!

If you are interested in fostering or adopting one of our dogs, please email us at CherishedK-9s@hotmail.com

Our Adoption Process...

After filling our our required Adoption Application, we will schedule a home visit. The home visit is to make sure our dog gets along with any existing pets in the home. We also check for obvious hazards and make sure the yard is secure.

If everything checks out OK, the next step is the Adoption Application, which finalizes the adoption. There is an adoption fee for each dog. (All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and micro-chipped.)

After the adoption is complete, there are follow-up wellness checks to make sure everything is working out for the adopters and the adopted dog.

At any time after the adoption is finalized, if the adopter decides to get rid of the dog, it must be returned to Cherished K-9 All Breed Rescue.
