Eddie's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Eddie's Story...
Eddie is a very special boy. A growth disorder in his hind leg required an amputation when he was 4 months old. His other back leg is missing two muscles. The damage causes his leg to turn out to the side and function more like an oar that pushes him along. He kind of looks like a crab as he scuttles along the floor.

Eddie has been to see several vets including a specialist. They are all of the opinion that this condition, although exhausting, will not benefit from surgery. They feel that he should lead a normal life, but have beds available everywhere for when he needs a break, a house without stairs, and a wheelchair to assist him in exercising and on longer walks. He has a wheelchair that he will need to use anytime he is out of the house.

He is a sweet puppy, 7 months old now, that loves other dogs and loves to play. He is in a chewing stage and still needs obedience training to help him listen to directions.

His growth will most likely be stunted and he will be a very small, 30 pound Boxer boy.

Eddie is an absolute love – he is waiting for the right person to take him home. He needs someone patient, willing to work with him in his wheelchair, understanding of his condition, but not coddling.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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