BURKE's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

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

BURKE here and I'm an 18 month old Boxer Boy.  I was in Missouri City and was loose on the streets.  I was picked up by Animal Control.  They looked for my family, but no one came to claim me.

I am in rescue now.  I just moved into a foster home and I'm getting along with all of my foster brothers and sisters.  They serve really good food here and I am eating and resting and filling out my once skinny body.  You know it is hard to get good food when you are living on the road!  I get along well with the other dogs in my foster home, but no cats for me.  I'm just not a cat guy. It is not personal, I just want to chase them and that doesn't go well. 

I am doing well with potty training and crate training.  I walk well on a leash with the other dogs, but I am a bit shy of traffic.  Therefore, when you adopt me you will have to be patient with me on the road. 

Like all Boxers, I love to play.  I am just now learning about toys and I really like them.   I like to hug and cuddle...like a sweet Boxer boy.  I know how to do the Boxer kidney bean dance...it is a little dance we Boxers do when we are excited.  I twist my body and wiggle all over with excitement. 

Please check back for more information on me.  OR if it is love at first sight, please complete an application for BURKE!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BURKE, 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.
