Rachael's Story...
Rachael is a Shepherd/Boxer-mix, female, 2 years of age.

Loyal, steadfast, endearing, and tranquil, Rachael is a highly devoted but somewhat serious-minded dog who loves more than anything to be close to her people. Warm and affectionate with those she knows, Rachael can be a little reserved when meeting new people, but with slight direction from her handler, she relaxes and is completely welcoming of strangers who quickly become new friends. Interested without being excitable, and wanting to be involved without being demanding, she is an attentive and very well-mannered dog who is quick and eager to please when she knows what is expected of her.

Lively, animated, and highly intelligent, she’s also a coyly inquisitive, very praise motivated girl who enjoys outdoor time and needs regular mental stimulation and physical activity to stay happy and healthy. Leashed walks, interactive outdoor activities, obedience training (which she’ll excel at), and adventurous outings alongside her much-adored family members will meet most of this compact canine’s exercise needs. Additional bonus for her if she has access to a secure, fenced yard or area where she can romp and explore on her own and with her people.

Spunky, sensitive, and wholly sincere, this faithful and loving dog also happens to have a good-natured disposition and totally can-do attitude, and she’s looking for responsible, caring owners who want to welcome her as a much-loved, always included family member in a home where she is provided with the structure, leadership, and companionship she needs and deserves.

Rachael is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a calm, low-active to 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 Rachael 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

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