Webster's Story...
Webster's story is a long one. We will update as often as we can to keep everyone abreast of his progress. You can also follow him on our Facebook page where there will be weekly updates.

Webster is doing great. He had his first negative skin scrape, all of his fur is returning and he should be available in a month of so. It's been a long haul, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. He is now housebroken, but has some moderate to severe separation anxiety. He HATES being left alone - even with another dog. He wants his people!!

We first heard about Webster on Monday, November 28th. One of our volunteers in Northern California spotted his intake photo. She messaged us and asked if we could rescue him.

We knew from his photo that he would need immediate and intensive help. We said "Of Course!!!"

He wasn't available for release until Thursday, December 1st. Through the efforts of many volunteers, Webster was pulled from the shelter and transferred to another volunteer that transported him to ANOTHER volunteer that took him to Reno.

His first stop on getting to Reno was our vet. iHe was diagnosed with demodex mange, a yeast infection, an allergic reaction and neglect. He is at least 10 lbs underweight. He has scratched himself bloody in several areas. Hislittle tufts of hair that he has is falling out. And yet his little tail keeps wiggling.

His is put on several prescription medications, over the counter medications and holistic treatments.

December 2 - DAY 2:

Webster is obviously pretty uncomfortable. He is settling into his foster home and gets along well with the other 5 dogs he is staying with. He has obviously never been in a house before. He is scared of the TV and not housebroken.

He had his first skin treatment last night and it seemed to relieve some of the itchiness and redness. He has to wear a shirt to keep his skin from bleeding when he bumps into things or scratches himself. The shirt also rubs a little but seems to offer more protection than it rubs.

He is working on his housebreaking, eating well and is taking all of his meds.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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