Sparky's Story...
Hi! I’m Sparky (A004838) and I’m a wonderful dog. My family surrendered me because they are moving. They said I’m just about a perfect dog. I’m good with kids, dogs, and cats. I’m housebroken and I’m good when I’m free in the house. I know sit, play dead, sit pretty, lay down, role over, high five, and I can say “I love you”. I love to cuddle and I’m very well mannered. I’m older but my family said I still very playful. I’m scared in the shelter right now so I’m hoping I’ll find a new home soon. I’m an 8 year old, male, white and brown, Boxer and Labrador Retriever mix. Come adopt me today! *Please do not call the shelter if you are interested in adopting. You must come into the shelter to meet the cat/dog. All dog adoptions require an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sparky, a Jackson 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 Jackson, or seeking a Boxer/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Jackson.

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