Petunia's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Petunia's Story...
We received an email from a large, highly crowded kill shelter regarding two boxers who were on death row. The dogs needed our help ASAP as they were facing imminent death through no fault of their own. We knew we had to save them.

One year old Petunia and Constantine were not deemed adoptable by the shelter. Petunia came into the shelter with untreated démodéctic mange. Her family dropped her off because they said they could not afford the medical treatment. We could not leave her behind to be killed.

Petunia’s mange will be evaluated as soon as we can schedule a vet appointment . According to the shelter, Petunia needs some training and TLC. She is already spayed and up-to-date on shots. We are not sure how she is with other dogs, cats or older children.

We will know more once Petunia has settled into her new foster home and will be sending an update as soon as possible.

We would like to give a big “Thank You” to the rescue coordinators at the shelter who went above and beyond to get Constantine and Petunia to safety. We greatly appreciate the extra effort they gave to get both dogs into our rescue program.
09/27/09: Foster home needed. More information coming soon! Petunia is currently receiving some long awaited medical treatments for mange and ear infections. Special needs, if any, to be determined.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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