Ali's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Ali's Story...
Ali was seized from an owner who was charged with animal cruelty. When he was found, he was emaciated, heartworm positive, and severely neglected. Thankfully, he has kept a bright spirit throughout his ordeal. He had to spend months in a shelter while the court case was pending. He is now in a loving foster home and is very happy to have a family and a soft bed to sleep on at night.

Ali is a senior boy, around 11 years old. He had one of his back legs amputated years ago after being hit by a car. He still gets around remarkably well for a senior tripod, though! He takes a glucosamine supplement daily, but does not require any other long-term medications.

Ali is on antibiotics and is taking Heartgard every 2 weeks. He was only a faint positive for heartworms, so we are hopefully that he will be negative in 6 months or so.

Ali lives with another male dog. He is dominant and a bit bossy, but they get along well now that they have the dynamic figured out. We would not recommend him for a home with another dominant dog. He seems uninterested in dog savvy cats, but he may chase a cat if it runs. He'd be fine with children of any age. Email adopt@rvaboxers.com if you are interested in giving Ali a retirement home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ali, a Richmond Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Boxer dog from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond 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 Richmond 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 breeders who help with Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
