Snickers's Story...
Honoring the Petco Foundation's Love Changes Everything Adoption Weekend my adoption fee has been reduced to $200 through March 10th so stop in because after-all, love is priceless!

Snickers is what they call me here! I am a sweet and sometimes goofy fellow now that I feel at home. I am an adult rescue from down south so everything up here is new from the taste of the water to the sound of your accents! I am an affectionate guy who was a bit nervous when I first arrived but now my playful and puppy-like side shines through. I love attention and belly rubs. I need to practice some of my manners like keeping all four paws on the floor and that hands are not toys but my intent is to play and be affectionate, I just need a bit more guidance is all. I am nervous around cars so need more practice walking by them and climbing in and out of them, food rewards and patience go a real long way. The folks here think I am about 3 years old and I was lucky enough to travel here from the south, just so I could find my family! No one knows my whole history but the folks here believe I am a boxer mix. I am considered a special needs adoption because shortly after being rescued it was realized that I had heartworm. I was a good boy through my treatment and am ready to be adopted but the folks here want my new parents to be aware that they will need to restrict my exercise for a while so just leash walks for us and follow up with their own veterinarian to make sure my treatment was successful. I am looking for a family with children 12 years and older and who is ready for their next great love. So what do you say, are you willing to take a chance on me?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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