  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
My name is Belles and I'm a young female boxer/bulldog mix. My new foster mom decided we needed to update my bio to ensure I get the best home for me to grow and blossom. So let me update you on me.

I originally was thought to be stressed with other doggies and therefore needed to be the ONLY dog in the house - NOPE. Not so! BIGGER doggies than me stress me out. I'm just fine with smaller (under 35lbs) doggies that are pretty laid back and calm. I have been through doggy boot camp and I graduated with honors in basic obedience training. I'm really smart and am willing to show you any chance i get! I am sweet, love belly rubs and a good fast run in my yard a couple times a day. I also enjoy going on a walk with you around the neighborhood, as loong as i have you as my strong leader to keep unknown doggies from getting right in my face. Now lets discuss those strange things called cats. I REALLY want to play with them, and my foster mom thinks i might like them too much, so in my future home, it would be best if there were none already living there. Here is what my foster mom and my trainer say i need in an adopter: (1) an experienced owner to bully breeds. Our breed tend to be bull headed and require strong leadership and firm direction. This is very important for me because I tends to be a little ADHD and forgets my commands sometimes, but with quick redirection I respond very well. (2) I am great with SLOW introductions (it took me a week of greeting inside my crate at my current home). The doggie sibling at my new home must be smaller and calm. I love the little doggies, but i can appear to be too rough when i try to play with them. I will be best if not left unattended with the smaller guys in case there is a disagreement or someone gets grumpy; I don't want to cause any harm (or get hurt). (3) I would do better in a home with older kids. 13 or 14 and older, only because I becomes easily excitable and forgets how big and strong I am and may knock a small child down. Bull dogs and boxers are common in energy and need a lot of active positive play to keep us from going crazy from boredom. Don't get me wrong. I like or should I say loves, loves, loves cuddling up for TV time, but when outside I need active, positive play. (4) I will need a nice large yard with tall fencing or privacy fencing to keep people from sticking hands in to my domain and to keep those kitties that I love to play with, out of my reach. Company is just fine as long as they are welcomed by my humans and come through the front door. I am highly crate trained and enjoy it when foster mom leaves the door open for me to take a nap. I prefer to eat in the crate also. My foster mom says she has never met a dog so eager to please her humans! I am fully potty trained and I am waiting for a quiet peaceful life where I can run freely in my back yard.

Foster mom says to make sure to apply today for a meet and greet. When you're approved, you get to meet me, my foster mom and cool boot camp trainer!

About Stray Animal Adoption Program

About Our Rescue Group...

We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non profit organization. We are dedicated to the rescue of animals that are in need of a forever home. Our animals are fostered in homes where we provide love, food, medical care and socialization until adoption into a new loving home. We educate on the importance of spaying and neutering of all pets.

We ensure all animals have been spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They are micro-chipped, up to date on shots and on heartworm and anti-flea medications (as age appropriate). They are ready and waiting to start their new life with their fur-ever family. Could that be you?

We need your help to continue our mission. We rely solely on donations and fundraisers. All donations are tax-deductible and 100% of your donation will go towards the rescue, care, and medical needs of the animals.

If you need info on a cat or kitten please contact 859-391-2944

Our Adoption Process...

You are required to sign a legally binding contact on your new pet. As part of that contract, should you no longer be able to keep the animal for any reason, the animal MUST be surrendered back to SAAP. This is to ensure the animal is placed back in foster care while we secure a new approved home for the animal. However, we always try to ensure that the initial placement is best for the pet and your family. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption.
