Rez is a 1y Boxer/Pitbull X that has spent her teenage years being an mom :(
She is still very much a puppy behaviorally and is looking forward to becoming a member of someone's family. She is okay with other dogs after proper introductions. She is fine with the cats in her foster home, but outdoor strays are a different story and will be chased. She is completely crate-trained and working on basic obedience. She is a bouncy girl (those Boxer genes) so we would not recommend a home with full-time small children until Rez has completed an obedience class and has better manners. She isn't aggressive AT ALL and has been around children, but she is 60-ish pounds of exuberant puppy - and accidents can happen.
If you are interested in adopting, the adoption donation is $150 and covers full vetting (vaccinations, dewormings, spay/neuter, heartworm testing, etc) prior to adoption.

~~~AVAILABILITY INQUIRIES: If the dog is still posted then he/she is available. We may have already accepted applications but have not chosen one yet. Please send yours if you'd like to be considered. A "pending" status means that the pet is spoken for, but the adoption has yet to be finalized. This pet may become available again if the adoption is not completed within a reasonable amount of time.
~~~LOCATION: We do not have a physical location where all of our dogs are housed nor do we have "business hours". We are made up of a network of private foster homes and sometimes use boarding. Once we have received your application, we can provide you with details and arrange a "meet and greet" when possible. We require an application before any meetings will be arranged.
~~~CATS/KIDS & DOGS: If we don't specifically mention cats/kids in the bio then we don't know exactly how a particular dog will react to them. If we suspect there will be aggression then we will say no to cats/kids. However, every dog needs to be introduced correctly to a house with cats or kids in it. Each dog and each cat/kid will have different chemistry together so there is no way to tell how they will act until the dog is in the home. Puppies less than one year of age can always go to a home with cats or kids, but they too need to learn. With a little effort, dogs and cats/kids can live together...but don't forget that dogs will be dogs so sometimes you will need to step in.
~~~OUT-OF-STATE ADOPTIONS: We will consider adopting to all states, but transport options are limited to some areas. Adopters are responsible for all additional fees associated with transporting a pet out-of-state.
