Meet Atticus! Atticus is approximately 3 years old & an 80 lb boxer mix. The first few years of Atticus' life was rough. His underbite is adorable but his teeth are a bit worn from chewing on his chain. He is the absolute happiest boy when he is with his people. He cries if he has to go out and appreciates any love and attention he gets. He does NOT like male dogs, but he is quite the ladies man. He has been around children and doesn't seem to notice them much. He loves balls almost too much. Once he has one in his mouth he doesn't want to give it up.
He is doing well on his house breaking and LOVES to take a walk.
He needs to be out of the sun as much as possible- due to his white coat and sensitive eyes.
He had some rough, isolated living before his rescue- so he would love a gentle life with a soft bed and someone to kissâ£ Atticus is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $250.
All of our dogs are in private volunteer foster homes, and as such these individuals are most qualified to answer any questions regarding the dog.
We do not have a central shelter or kennel locations - you must make a private one-on-one meet and greet appointment with each individual dog at the foster family's convenience. To protect our foster families' privacy, we must have an APPROVED adoption application on file before we release their contact information.
All of our dogs are fixed (spayed/neutered) and up to date on shots. We have a 2 week foster-to-adopt period to make sure the dog is a fit for your family. Adoption fees vary from dog-to-dog.
Please note that an approved application DOES NOT guarantee that the dog will be placed with you. The final decision rests with our fosters as they know the dogs the best, and please be aware that there may be other applicants interested in the same dog. We continue accepting applications on a dog until the dog is with the new adoptive family in their home.
Thank you for visiting our dogs located at www.SecondChanceDogRescue.org
