Dodger's Info...

Dodger's Story...
Dodger is 4 years old & thankful to be in rescue. We don't know how he came to be in a high kill shelter but he was due to be euthanized the day his foster mom picked him up. Dodger apparently had lived outside for quite a while as he had a rather thick undercoat that his foster family has been helping him shed out. He is very friendly & loves to play with the kids & other boxers in his foster home. Dodger has shown himself to be a great companion. He will follow his foster family around the house & outside, likes to go for walks & car rides. He has plenty of boxer energy, yet he is satisfied to lounge around the house. He enjoys anything you do as long as he can do it with you. Dodger walks nicely on leash. He is crate trained & is working on his potty training, which he is picking up very quickly. Dodger will be best suited for a home with older children, 7 years & up, because he gets excited when greeting & playing & will jump up. Dodger is microchipped, up to date on his vetting & ready to join his forever family.
Adoption Donation: $225.00

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dodger, a Owensboro Boxer dog 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 dog 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.
