CARMELA's Story...
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Carmela here...I'm a 1 1/2 year old, female Boxer girl.  I came into rescue with my friend Louie.  He and I were found wandering around Houston and a nice person picked us up and took us to the Houston Boxer Rescue folks.  I was named after that woman on that Italian Mobster show.  But, don't worry, I'm a very sweet girl...not sure if I have any Italian in me or not, but I know I love the smell of all Italian food. 

I am a very sweet girl and I just LOVE everyone.  I love dogs, I love all people but I am partial to those male creatures, cats, everyone!  I'm a bit on the skinny side right now, so they are giving me lots of food so that I put some more weight on my bones.
Life in foster care is VERY good!  My foster parents are in love with me already due in part to my playful, amusing, and goofy antics!  Even though I am a party girl I havelearned I get the most attention when I sit still.  So don't be surprised if I walk right up, sit right down, and wait for all the adoration you are willing to give!  I am smart.  I know 'sit' and 'down', and am adding more to my repertoire every day!  I walk well on a leash but I'm still young enough to be curious about my surroundings.  I am house trained and only lack a tiny bit of polish to be crate trained too.  I know that is important stuff!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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