Nelson's Story...

Nelson is a neutered male, white and brown Boxer/Pointer/Pit Bull mix. He is 3 years old and weighs 61 pounds.

Nelson attended an adoption event at a wellness center with other dogs and rabbits. There were lots of folks walking in and out of the Wellness Center, some with wheelchairs and canes, and Nelson and his pal Bronson were very comfortable with all of the commotion.

Nelson rode nicely in the car to and from the event. When he walks with you, he stays right by your side and is calm. He looks to his human for guidance. What a good boy!

Rope toys and tennis balls are two of his favorite toys.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nelson, a Vista Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Vista, or seeking a Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Vista.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Vista 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 Vista 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/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Vista paves the way for another one to be saved.
