SOPHIE's Story...

Please email the completed application to
Please submit an application AND do NOT also contact the shelter. You will be contacting both the adoption coordinator and the marketing director, who do not see each other's emails. This causes confusion.

Magnificent SOPHIE is an incredibly obedient and affectionate girl! She is totally potty trained and trots in her kennel willingly when her foster parents leave the house for work. She has impeccable house manners and is not high energy. She is terrific in in the car and in public so she gets to go on many adventures including PetCo and Home Depot. Some of her photos were taken on a recent outing to a giant park. She had an absolute blast there.

SOPHIE is absolutely wonderful with dogs and children. She is loved by the 3 resident dogs and 2 kiddos in her foster home. She is not a fan of cats. Stunning SOPHIE is the ideal age of 2 years old. She is a loyal companion and incredible family dog!

SOPHIE is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations.
Her $450 adoption fee includes her interstate health certificate and cost of transport once she is adopted.

All of our dogs start their journey in Memphis, Tennessee where they remain in loving foster families until they are adopted. Once adopted, they travel via one of our transport partners to their new forever homes. We use Alpha Dog Pet Transport for our New England, Nashville, and Knoxville adoptions ( and The Road Home Pet Transport for our Midwest adopters (

Breed selection is done in conjunction with two local vets and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well-educated decision from well qualified staff.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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