Hootie's Story...
Hootie is an American Bullboxer (Boxer/Bulldog-mix), male, 2 years of age.

You know you’ve found a lover of a dog when he sports a heart-shaped marking on his chest…and a lover he is, both of people and of life! Sweet-natured and happy-go-lucky, Hootie is a great mix of lively playfulness, warm affection, high-functioning intelligence, and puppy-like curiosity. Handsome and charming, his zestful take on life means he needs a responsible, confident and firm owner who will appropriately channel that exuberance by providing established rules and boundaries, to which all family members faithfully adhere, and which will prevent him from taking liberties that could potentially get him into trouble.

Hootie craves leadership and direction and this affectionate, eager-to-please, and genuinely sincere young guy will thrive with owners who provide him with the structure and companionship he needs and deserves. Sociable, loyal and devoted, Hootie is also obedient and attentive to his leader; a quick learner, he will, upon request, proudly show off his skills at sitting, giving a paw to shake, and accepting a treat gently.

Athletic and very intelligent, he will undoubtedly enjoy and excel at obedience. He revels in outdoor activities, especially if that means getting to hang-out alongside “his people.” A home with a securely enclosed yard where he can safely romp and explore the world around him would be a huge bonus for Hootie, too. With consistent coaching and adequate daily exercise, Hootie will surely flourish as a well-mannered, yet fun and vibrant, canine family member who is up for any and all adventures.

Hootie is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.

Come meet Hootie at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

For more information you can email carrie_nation@monroemi.org or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.

Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.

Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.

In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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