Renee's Story...
Renee is a Greyhound/Boxer-mix, female, 2.5 years of age.

Active and playful outdoors, calm and laid back indoors, this well put together mix of Greyhound and Boxer is elegant without being stuffy and curious without being excitable. A strikingly beautiful, very intelligent canine who is also lively and animated, Renee needs regular physical activity and mental stimulation to stay fit and happy. Her exercise needs though are not really all that demanding: leashed walks and plenty of chances to run, chase and explore in a fenced yard, as well as an occasional opportunity to stretch her legs in a full-out run meets most of this sweet and entirely charming dog’s needs. Add human companionship and creature comforts like a soft bed to sleep in, and a warm winter coat (Renee hates the cold), and she’ll be an extremely happy and well-mannered house dog.

Affectionate and entirely devoted to people she knows, Renee can be a little shy with strangers. She warms up quickly enough though—given a respectful few seconds she becomes once again animated, and indeed, welcoming of attention of her own accord. A well-mannered dog who is attentive, obedient, and eager to please when she knows what is expected of her, Renee is a quick study who learns commands easily; and she’ll enjoy and benefit from training and socialization classes. This will also be a great way to form a trust bond with her. Keep in mind though, Renee is a highly sensitive girl, particularly to tone, so positive, upbeat training and leadership is important to her success.

Renee 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 Renee 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

Renee, a Monroe Greyhound/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Greyhound/Boxer for sale in Monroe, or seeking a Greyhound/Boxer 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 Greyhound/Boxer breeders who help with Greyhound/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Monroe paves the way for another one to be saved.
