Bella's Story...
This sweet soul is Ms. Bella. She has been through a lot, you can see her full story on the Safehands Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/notes/safe-hands-rescue/mercy-miracles/1157009597652144

Despite her past, her tail has never stopped wagging since arriving to our home. She is curious and playful and gets along great with children and other dogs. We are currently working on house training and walking on a leash. When she gets her full strength back we will start basic commands. She is crated when we are not home, and sleeps next to us at night. Bella is estimated to be about 1-2 years old and weighs about 30 pounds. Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom and dad are!), we are just guessing on breed.

All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They have all had a vet exam, are up to date on vaccinations, have been given a dewormer, are treated for fleas, have a heartworm test if over 6 months old and are up to date on a heartworm preventative.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at http://www.safehandsrescue.org under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday April 2, 2016, at Fetch Delivers Warehouse, 783 Harding St. NE. Suite 150, Minneapolis, MN 55413, from noon - 2 pm. Occasionally dogs cannot make it to the Meet & Greet, therefore feel free to verify if your dog of interest is able to attend. Please bring a copy of your pre-adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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