Joe's Story...
Name: Joe
Sex: Male
Breed: Boxer Mix
Age: 7 years old
Weight: TBD
Good with: People, kids (8 & up) dogs and cats.

Hi, my name’s Joe. Up until the past couple months, I was a lucky guy. I lived with my best friend down south for 7 years, but he passed away and I am still grieving. His family wasn’t able to keep me, so I went to a shelter for a little while until Survivor Tails read about me. I am up north in MA at my new foster home now, waiting for a family to come along to give me the love I lost.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a loyal guy who loves to get my ears scratched. I’ve never met a stranger, and I get along well with cats. I like to lay on the floor and just hang out watching Netflix. My foster dad loves sci-fi, and I think I’m starting to love it too. If anyone says R-I-D-E, I go nuts! I love riding in the car. Do you like going for walks? I do, and I am GREAT on a leash. I don’t like to pull because I like to stay right by your side. I don’t pay any attention to dogs that walk by me, either. I’m happy to just stroll around. Also, I am housebroken and I don’t have food or toy aggression. My favorite toys are ropes – gimme a good rope, and I’ll show you a good time.
Did I mention I like kids? I’ve been around a kid that was 7 years old and I was a perfect angel. I’m a pretty big guy – about 60 lbs – but I am gentle. You can see that I have some old age, but that doesn’t stop me from having a lot of love to give. I might need some help jumping in and out of the car, or (if you want me to) getting on the couch. I’m ready to meet my family and I hope to give you a big kiss very soon.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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