Forrest is a wiggly and bouncy 2 year old male Boxer mix. He is around 60 pounds and is high energy. He does well with other dogs but can get jealous easily. He has not been tested around children or cats yet but this can be arranged. He is fully vetted and is heartworm positive but we will begin his slow kill treatment this month. He acts just like a Boxer, so we would really like to find someone who has had experience with the breed. Boxers can be difficult, while they are very loyal, they are also extremely high energy and require thorough training and someone with the time and patience to handle them properly.

About County Roads Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

My name is Dava and I am the founder of this organization. I originally was a volunteer at the Jacksonville Animal Shelter in Jacksonville, Texas. They were never able to help with the many abandoned and neglected dogs and cats in the county since they were only contracted with the city. So I stepped in to help. We rescue anywhere between 10-20 animals in Cherokee County every month. There are many more in need of help still and the need for a rescue in this area was large.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees are between $50-$150 for cats and dogs depending on their age and how much vetting they have had (shots are given based on age, all are spayed or neutered after 6 months of age). If they have not been spayed/neutered or received a rabies vaccine due to age, you are required to sign a time sensitive contract stating the procedures will be done. We do not allow animals to be strictly outside animals, cats cannot be declawed, if you are renting we require a letter from your landlord stating he/she is aware of the new pet before the adoption can be final. Other animals in the home must be up to date on vaccines and altered.
