Marco's Story...

Bull Terrier X

Age: 2 Years

Size: Large (50 lbs)

Gender: Male

Dogs: Yes

Kids: Yes

Cats: maybe

Came in:02/26/09

Have you seen the Target commercial with the cute little dog with the red Target logo around his eye? That’s Marco’s cousin!

Ok, maybe not really, but it is possible! Marco is part Bull Terrier – NOT Pit Bull Terrier. Two totally different breeds.

For those of you from the 80’s years: Think “Spuds McKenzie”. Marco is still a puppy. He likes other dogs and LOVES to play. His foster home reported that other than having a lot of energy (any playing non-stop with their dog) he was a perfect gentleman.

Marco was brought to us as a hearing-impaired boxer mix. Surprise, Surprise: He isn’t a boxer and he isn’t hearing impaired. Marco hears just fine.

Are you ready for Marco? Call his name and maybe you’ll get a “polo” in response.

All of our dogs are FAMILY COMPANIONS!

Our adoption requirements are:

• You must be 21 years of age

• All current pets in the household MUST be spayed/neutered and current on shots (yes, we do call and verify this information)

• We do not place female boxers with other female dogs

• Attendance at a professionally run obedience course is a requirement of adoption!

Puppies under 6 months old: $250

Dogs and Puppies over 6 months old: $200

Senior dogs over 6 years old: $150

Boxers and Buddies is operated 100% by the help of volunteers.
The volunteers spend their spare time helping dogs in need find new homes. Our volunteers have families, jobs, and dogs on their own that keep them very busy. They help when they can, so please be patient with our volunteers. If we don't get back to you in a timely fashion, don't hesitate to send a reminder email our way and we'll do what we can to get back to you. We do not have a 'shelter'. All dogs in need of homes are either in their surrendering home, a foster home, or at a boarding facility. As much as we want the dogs in rescue to be rehomed as quickly as possible, we all have time and area constraints that can sometimes slow the process down. Please know that we take rehoming dogs very seriously and want to make sure all of the dogs we place go to the right families. That can take time, so again, please be patient

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marco, a Reno Bull Terrier puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bull Terrier for sale in Reno, or seeking a Bull Terrier puppy from a breeder in Reno.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Reno 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 Reno 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 Bull Terrier breeders who help with Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Reno paves the way for another one to be saved.
