Rocco's Story...
This handsome boy is Rocco. He is 1-2 yrs old. Rocco had no ID on when picked up by Animal Control & his owner chose not to claim him. Luckily, Rocco made it into rescue. He weighs 55 lbs, although he could stand to gain a few more pounds which he is working on. Treats really motivate this guy. He has a very calm demeanor, walks well on leash, & enjoys playing with the other boxers in his foster home. Rocco does well with children of all ages & loves having a family to cuddle with & care for him. He seems to know he is supposed to potty outside & goes into his crate quietly when offered a few treats. Due to being on his own outside, he is also heartworm positive & will be receiving treatment.

Adoption Donation: $250.00

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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