Coco is a 9-year-old Boxer-mix that was picked up running loose by animal control. Her family was found, but they didn’t want to get her back. She is now safe with us, waiting for a family who deserves this super sweet gal. Don’t let her age fool you – she is a very young-acting 9-year-old! She is completely housebroken, seems good with other dogs, and is great with kids, although the energy of very young kids might be too much for her (and vice versa). She is a ton of fun in the yard and loves to enthusiastically sit for a treat and give paw. She plops herself down and looks at us with a smile. Such a nice girl. Coco does not like to be in her crate, but she is fine to leave loose as she has very good house manners. She is a big talker, so she’s not a great candidate for an apartment or condo, but when you are home, you will really enjoy having her company. She is great around other dogs and has been attending our weekly meet and greet events at stores in the Chicago suburbs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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