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


ERNIE here and I'm a 2 year old boxer boy.  I just got into rescue, so here is what we know so far.

If you have done research on Boxers, you know that we have a playful nature and boundless energy.  We Boxers are not considered fully mature until we reach 3 years old, so we get to have the longest puppyhood in the world of dogs. 

I am your typical intelligent, alert, and fearless Boxer Boy.  I will be very loyal to my family and love to play.  Many call us the George Clooneys of the Dog world - Big Hunks with a great sense of humor.

I clearly have a special skill in that I like to hold my food bowl in my mouth when I am finished eating...I think it is very cute and surely you will too when you see my pictures!

I get along with other dogs.  I have not been in a home with a cat, but when I see one around, I seem to be fine with them.  I am a leaner and a lover.  I like to lean on my humans to ensure that I get the most love and attention as possible.

I am working on my leash training so that I will walk nicely on a leash and I'm also working on basic commands. 

Stay tuned for more information on me OR if it is love at first sight, please complete an application for ERNIE!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ERNIE, 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.
