Rowdy came to the shelter from another area shelter that was not set up for puppies. He is a handsome boxer mix who is 5 months old and weighs 27 lbs. He will probably weigh around 50 lbs when fully grown. Rowdy is up to date on vaccines and will be neutered before joining his forever family. He is a very playful and goofy boy who loves to make you laugh. He is also very smart and already knows how to sit! Rowdy would adore having children and/or other dogs to play with--he has a lot of energy to work off! Rowdy will be a loving, dedicated family dog for life...if that is what you are looking for, search no further!
UPDATE 10/3/16: Rowdy was accepted into the Rockville Correctional Facility to learn basic obedience, housetraining and socialization skills. He will graduate around 1/3/17 and is available for adoption reservation through the shelter. His adoption fee is $150. He is neutered and completely vaccinated!
Unless otherwise stated, the adoption fee for dogs over 4 months is $120.00.
