Emmett's Story...
11/20/09: Emmett Is A Happy Clown

Emmett is a young handsome fawn boxer who had been running free for some time and was eventually picked up by animal control. He was very skinny, extremely dirty, and you could see his ribs and hip bones protruding from his body. His feet were red and irritated most likely from being outside in wet weather, and from all the running he must have done while on his own.

Animal control recognized that Emmett was a great boy. They thought he deserved better than his pending grim fate and contacted NBR for assistance. Emmett’s mandatory “hold time” would soon be up and he would then be euthanized.

An NBR volunteer picked up skinny sweet little Emmett. What they saw was a fabulous boy with bright shiny eyes that said 'please love me'. They brought him directly to the vet where he was given a routine exam, inoculations, and blood work. He was also scheduled to be neutered.

Emmett had an infection on his paws but they are being treated and are doing very well. He has now been neutered and is recovering without incident. He was a big hit at the vet office and they all fell in love with him.

Emmett is in a temporary foster home, and is enjoying the company of other dogs and a bird. His foster mom says he loves all the attention he is getting, is thrilled about the yummy food, and is happy running in the fenced yard.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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