Tinsel's Story...
Tinsel 2 yr. old female

Tinsel came to us on December 24, 2011 when she was just 1 year old. She had never met strangers and was lunging and barking at the shelter staff. They were afraid she was going to bite and called us to rescue her before they euthanized her.

Tinsel is a very special boxer She loves ALL other dogs. However, she is VERY nervous around strangers. Tinsel has never bit, but she does growl, snap and lunge at people she doesn’t know – including visitors in the house. It takes her meeting a new person 3-5 times, and then she is comfortable After she gets to know you (after about a week) she LOVES you. Tinsel also loves teenage boys. She has bonded with several at the rescue and thinks they’re just the BEST!

Tinsel love is a very precious thing. She is very cuddly and sweet. She loves to curl up right next to you (on you, honestly) and will follow you anywhere (on or off leash).

The problem is that no one wants to take the time to get to know Tinsel. To bond with her. To love her. She is an amazing dog. She just needs and amazing owner.

If you truly want to rescue, Tinsel is waiting

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tinsel, 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.
