Christie's Story...
Hi! My name is Christie and I am a Boxer mix. I am approximately 1-2 years old and am very loving. Boxers are high energy dogs that love to play. Boxers need daily exercise. I would do best as part of a family where I would get daily walks (possibly even runs) once or twice a day and someone to play with me. I love to play fetch, swim and run around the back yard. If you let me, I will be your best friend. Because of my heritage, I am not the type of dog who will do well left alone in an apartment or where I am expected to lie around all day. I need to play and be played with.

I am currently being trained by a CPDT (Certified Professional Dog Trainer). My trainer is teaching me things such as how to pause and not run outside until given the command. Because not much is known about my previous life and because of my high energy, my foster took me to a veterinarian behaviorist for an evaluation. My trainer, in consultation with the behaviorist, is helping me to learn a few manners. It is recommended that I not be adopted by a family with children under 12 years of age or by an elderly couple.

I am spirited and happy all the time- and sometimes, get excited to see people I know and I may jump up, until told to sit. My trainer will continue my work with whoever adopts me. My foster took me to her vet for a check-up and was told that all is good. I have had complete blood work and urinalysis. I would love to come home with you and be your girl.

Christie is around 2 yrs old and around 40 lbs. She is updated on shots, spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped, and heartworm tested. The adoption fee is $125.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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/Pointer breeders who help with Boxer/Pointer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
