Valentine's Story...
Get out your stationary because you are going to be sending love notes to this sweetheart all year round. Every day will be Valentine's day...literally. Valentine came to us as an emergency owner surrender when her family dynamic changed and she was no longer safe in her home. As with so many rescue pups, Valentine took everything in stride, settled right in with her fosters and quickly stole their hearts. In fact, they quickly began referring to her as the perfect wiggle butt. At 5 years old and approximately 60lbs, V is a great age as she is past the puppy stage but still has a long wonderful life ahead of her. Not to mention, she is already completely housebroken and knows all her basic commands including sit, paw and stay! She is a quiet girl and almost never barks, she's an absolute rockstar on leash and she enjoys time in her crate. She often takes herself in throughout the day for a snooze and she happily sleeps in her crate through the night. In true Boxer style, she loves to cuddle and is all about belly rubs but she still enjoys a good playtime. Valentine lives with other dogs in her foster home and is fine sharing her space but she does not rely on the companionship of her canine siblings and would be perfectly content to be your one true love. Miss Val will flourish in almost any home, even with gentle, respectful kiddos, as she loves everyone she meets.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bristol 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 Bristol 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 Bristol paves the way for another one to be saved.
