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


I am Punkin...  I was found in pretty bad shape.  I was emaciated and covered in fleas.  That can happen to a girl when she is living on the streets.  I am happy to report that I am now in foster care and I'm gaining weight and starting to look much better, and HBR is just beginning to learn new things about me.

There are other boxers in my foster home and I am doing very well integrating into my temporary pack.  Riding in the car was nice, much better than walking!  And I was a good girl.  I am crate trained and consider it my safe haven.  I was given a bath and while its not my favorite thing, it felt good to be clean!  I'm not much of a jumper and respond quickly to correction, but boy do I love to race around the yard!

Tennis balls are my favorite and I am learning to like my very own chew bone!  I don't exhibit any resource gaurding whether over food or toys.  I am gentle when taking a treat from your hand or 'giving' you a toy when asked.  I'm learning about the leash and sort of spooked by my own shadow.  But I will learn how much fun and safe it is to be on lead.

Please stay tuned for updates on me, I can't wait to be someone's very own punkin!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

PUNKIN, 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.
