Petey's Story...
Bio*: Petey is a boxer mix approximately 1 year old. He was found beside a cemetery with an empty bag of dog food and no water. He was fearful of people and other dogs when he was rescued. Though he was very afraid and shy at first, he has blossomed into a total goofball at his foster home. He loves to play and would make active moms or dads or kids a tireless playmate! He's heart worm positive and doing great under treatment though he is stir crazy and can't wait to run and jump and play play play. Petey is leash trained, kennel trained and he sits on command. He gets along great with our other large dogs and cats though he can be excited when meeting new dogs and cats. He is friendly and loves to cuddle as much as he does playing. If you might be interested in petey or have questions about heartworms email info@forrescue.net! Petey is fostered in North Alabama.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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