Hi, my name's River! I'm a handsome 4-year-old male Boxer-Pocket Pittie Mix. I'm the whole package - super sweet and very smart! I learned all of my basic commands from the PAWsome crew at K9's Only, which is really cool because I get to visit them for training for the rest of my life!!!

Cuddle and play time is my absolute favorite thing! Right now I'm enjoying life at my foster family's home where I get lots of love and training in preparation for my forever family.  My foster home has both cats and dogs, but I'll do best in a home as the only furbaby or with only female dogs.

I'm really excited to meet a family kinda like me... super nice and really chill who likes to exercise and play with me... I'd love to keep active with going on hikes and such! Mostly, I'm looking for a leader who will keep up on my training and always show me boundaries and consistency, and of course, patience and love. But mostly, I just want a best friend for life.

Our Adoption Process...

We are so delighted you’re considering adopting one of our buddies as your lifelong companion!! It is our mission to rehabilitate each animal before they are placed for adoption, which makes for a smoother transition process between you and your new buddy. Your furry friend will be vaccinated, spayed/neutered, micro chipped, and socialized. Our intention is for both you and Fido to thrive and we will make every effort to support this special bond.


Once you’ve found your PAWmate, please be sure to fill out our online application, located at:!adoption-application/c1g7e. We will contact you right away to get started with the adoption process and to arrange a meet and greet with your prospective buddy.


Now you’re ready for a home visit! It is our goal to ensure your home is safe and free of hazards, such as harmful chemicals, exposed wires or cords, balconies, and doggie doors or fences that allow for the great escape. Don’t worry, if we find any potential hazards, we will help you with buddy-proofing!


Now it’s time to sign our Adoption Agreement and collect the adoption fee.


Your adoption fee helps cover the costs for your buddy’s vaccinations, medical appointments, spaying/neutering, microchip, and training.

Dog Buddies $300 - $350

Puppy Buddies $350 - $400

Cat/Kitty Buddies $150 - $200


Now, you’re ready to begin the adventure of a lifetime with your new BFF! Please keep in mind that no matter how much your buddy has been rehabilitated before arriving to your home, there will always be a transition period. A lot of rescue animals have encountered difficult circumstances, such as neglect, unstable home environments, stressful conditions, or even past abuse. Think of how you might react to a new home environment in such a situation. Set your expectations accordingly and be prepared for the bonding process to be just that, a process. We promise it will be worth it!!
Thank you for becoming one of Beople’s People and joining our Buddy Brigade! We will continue to provide support by following up with you after 3 days, 3 weeks, and 3 months. We do hope you’ll be an active Buddy Alumni and continue to check in with us and drop by often!

Our buddies thank you for your interest and hope to see you PAWfully soon!
