Jeter's Story...
Jeter is new to our rescue and we are still getting to know each other. We have already found out how sweet and silly this 2 year old boy can be.

Jeter is a very dark, almost seal, brindle boy. He is bouncy and playful.

On Saturday, September 24, Boxers and Buddies Dog Rescue attended the annual “Pet Blessing” at Lakeside Church, just like they’ve done every year for the past four years. It is a wonderful and well-organized event. This year Jeter
(http://www.boxersandbuddies.com/2011/09/jeter/) was playing and having
fun when he suddenly started to retch.

Volunteers watched in horror as he bloated. Jeter’s stomach was quickly
filling with gas and if the gas was not released immediately, his stomach would turn causing intense pain and be deadly within hours.

A volunteer quickly rushed him to Klaich Animal Hospital where the
emergency surgery was performed to release the pent up gas and fluids
in his stomach and prevent it from reoccurring. Saturday night was
touch and go.

Sunday morning came and a visit to the vet and Jeter concluded that he
made it safely through the night and was greeting everyone with tail
wagging. His vet bills are already over $1200. Boxers and Buddies is a
non-profit animal rescue and desperately needs help to pay this
enormous vet bill.

Monday morning vet check-in – Jeter needs to stay til at least 2pm to make sure his food stays down and digests well. If so, Jeter gets released today. He still has no home to go to and no one to love him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jeter, a Reno Boxer dog 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 dog 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.
