Dolly's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Dolly's Story...
Name: Dolly
Sex: Female
Breed: Boxer Mix
Age: 1 yr
Weight: 35-40 lbs
Good with: People, kids and dogs. Not good with cats.

Dolly and Reba were at the shelter together. They like to get together to play and sing. Both were living in a home with little kids and were wonderful with them. Unfortunately the family could no longer keep their dogs so they will be in the Boston area looking for loving homes.

Dolly has arrived in New England! She is a moderately energetic dog that LOVES stuffed animals and tennis balls! She prefers to lounge on her dog bed during the day, but sleeps in her crate at night.

She enjoys walks outside and walks okay on a leash. She will pull if she sees small animals like squirrels -- may have a high prey drive. She seems to have too much interest in the cats at her foster home, so a home without cats is best. Dolly is very good at entertaining herself with toys! She'll toss them around and chase them! We think Dolly may enjoy having another pup around with her as she likes to get into her play position with her foster sibling... who really isn't into that. She can't wait to find her furever home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Boston 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 Boston 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 Boston paves the way for another one to be saved.
