Skylar (Dakota)'s Info...

Skylar (Dakota)'s Story...
Skylar (aka Dakota) was part of the Breaking Bad litter we fostered several months ago. All 7 puppies were adopted and went to their forever homes when they were little. Unfortunately, Dakota's adopters couldn't give her the time or space for her to play and grow and she was returned to Ruff House. The Rescue asked us if when we would foster her again, which of course we did but, it's only fair for this baby girl to finally find her permanent and loving home. She is about 6 1/2 months old now and is great with our dogs, loves kids and would make any home complete.
It breaks my heart that she hasn't found that perfect family yet.

Can you be her angel? To adopt please answer the pre-screening questionnaire under the "adopt" tab on ruffhouserescue.org or fill out the foster app to foster! Thank you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skylar (Dakota), a Freeport Boxer/Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Freeport, or seeking a Boxer/Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Freeport.

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