Faith's Story...
04/22/10: Faith - You Have Come A Long Way Baby
Faith is now 5 months old, and weighs in at a healthy 43 lbs. She has recovered well after being spayed on March 4th and returned quickly to her sweet puppy antics. Although she is crate trained, Faith now sleeps on a pillow in the bedroom - next to her foster siblings. She can now be trusted to sleep through the night loose like the big dogs without incident.

Faith enjoys going for walks on a leash, loves to go for car rides, and knows how to sit. She likes nothing better than to run with the other dogs, play a good game of tug-of-war, and snuggle with anyone who wants to take a snooze. Oh, and she is house-broken too.

Faith has come a long way since she arrived in rescue barely alive. She is finally ready for a new family to love her and a home to call her own.

02/03/10: Faith Has Lots of Character and Is Very Smart

Miraculous little Faith has grown to be a strapping 14 weeks old. This puppy has lots of character and is also very smart. She loves to play and takes several naps during the day. When Faith gets tired she wants to crawl up into your lap for a nap and is happy to snooze for an hour or so. She gets along great with other dogs and the cat. She loves everyone she meets but you have to watch out for the sharp baby teeth.

Faith is not a heavy eater and prefers to graze throughout the day. However, she is always interested in what the other dogs in the house are eating and will lick their bowl clean when they are done. So while my other dogs are eating Faith is on a leash until they are finished.

Faith lets you know when she needs a bathroom break at night- then she goes back to sleep. She loves a good soft blanket to sleep on. She is just learning how to use the doggie door. Faith breaks out into the boxer "run, run, run" routine and she goes around the yard like a race car. She loves a good game of tug-of-war with the other dogs and does not back down from them. She needs and has lots of toys to play with and loves to chew as she still has her baby teeth - nylabones are a favorite.

Faith is very adaptable. She will make a great canine companion as the only dog in the house, as she is a happy dog, or she will blend with any family that has other animals - all you have to do is take her into your heart and your home. She is a great dog. Her and her sister Destiny have overcome much hardship in their short lives and they are ready to enjoy life to the fullest.

Faith is scheduled to be spayed and will be ready to be adopted as soon as she recovers from surgery.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Faith, 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.
