Ali's Story...

Calling all Boxer Lovers!!! Meet Mr. Muhammad Ali---'Ali' for short. Ali is a handsome 2 two year old pure bred flashy brindle boxer. Unlike his namesake, this boy is anything but a fighter. He is the calmest and coolest boxer we've ever met!  He is currently 43 pounds and extremely underweight, so we expect him to be 55-60 pounds once he fills in.

When we first met Ali, he was shy in the overwhelming shelter, but the moment he got outside, he shined! He was just so content while being temperament tested - almost as if he knew we'd pick him and he wasn't worried in the slightest...well, he was right! He is great (and extremely patient) with the other pups in our cycle. He's more playful with people than other dogs, but he enjoys everyone's company either way.

Ali would make a great companion for a family who loved a little bit of play and a lot of snuggling on the couch! This old soul would be happy to join you for a long stroll, and just as happy to lay at your feet while you read poetry aloud to him.

Ali is neutered, and up to date on all his shots. Like soo many dogs in the shelter and in our program, Ali is heartworm positive and Canine CellMates will be paying for his heartworm treatment.

If you'd like to donate to Ali's treatment, please follow the link here: http://www.caninecellmates.org/online_donation.aspx

This good looking gentleman is available for adoption immediately and will be able to go to his forever home after graduation. This sweet sensitive boxer will get scooped up by a loving family quickly, so don't hesitant to get those applications in now!

If you are interested in setting up a meet and greet with Ali, please go to  www.caninecellmates.org  and fill out an adoption application, then email to adopt@caninecellmates.org.

Ali is part of the Canine CellMates program at Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, GA that pairs inmates up with urgent dogs from the Fulton County Animal Shelter. Dogs must pass a temperament test and then go through a 10 week training course similar to the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification. The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program, established in 1989, is an American Kennel Club program to promote responsible dog ownership and to encourage the training of well-mannered dogs. The evaluation consists of ten objectives. All items must be completed satisfactorily or the team fails. Test items include: Accepting a friendly stranger. Sitting politely for petting. Allowing basic grooming procedures. Walking on a loose lead. Walking through a crowd. Sitting and lying down on command and staying in place. Coming when called. Reacting appropriately to another dog. Reacting appropriately to distractions. Calmly enduring supervised separation from the owner.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ali, a Atlanta Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer for sale in Atlanta, or seeking a Boxer dog from a breeder in Atlanta.

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