Shelby's Info...

Shelby's Story...
Shelby (female) BOXER...
Everyone has a story...this is mine. I'm a 3 1/2 year old boxer. My current owner got me from some people that were not taking care of me. That was two years ago. Now, his father-in-law has had surgery, and he had to move in with him to help out. He is also having to help out financially and that means there isn't enough money for him to take care of me. I'm sad and scared. I'm not sure what will happen to me and that is not a good feeling to have. I'm a bigger gal....weighing in at about 70 pounds. But I'm PURE LOVE. I love to give slobbery smooches. I tend to be anxious at times and while some of that is my breed...a lot of it has to do with my past and the people that didn't take care of me. My owner is making do for now, but I need a new home soon. I am a dominant female, so I need a home with no female dogs. If you are interested in adopting me, please email ljmitchell11@aol.com or call 318-401-2472. There is a screening process to adopt me and my adoption fee is a suggested donation to Pet Savers of $30 for their help in rehoming me and to help assure I go to a good home. Once you adopt me, PLEASE get me spayed/neutered to help control the HUGE overpopulation and euthanasia rate in this area. Robinson’s Rescue low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic (Shreveport) offers special low-cost pricing for spaying and neutering. Call 318-861-0101 for your spay/neuter appointment ONLY, not about me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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