Facts about Ali

  • Breed: Boxer
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
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!
