Pluto's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Pluto's Story...
About me:
I am a young dude with an adventurous spirit and unbridled enthusiasm. I am very curious in nature and have to satisfy that curiosity by conducting my own investigations until I am fully satisfied.

I love to keep active and enjoy activities that really get my heart pumping! My foster mom says that I am a great running partner, though I tend to have one speed. While I am super fast when I run and play, I go into "marathon" pace while running, so don't expect to get a speed workout with me. If I do say so myself, I look pretty darn good on a leash. I have been practicing my bouncy boxer strut, and I think it's paying off.

People fawn all over me wherever I go, and are always saying how cute I am. Geesh, having these "kissable jowls" is a little burdensome at times, but I put up with it. If I really want something, I show off my cute little underbite and give them the ol' head tilt. That gets 'em every time.

I have been told that I am not necessarily the most tidy eater. I love my food, but I love my people too, and want to be wherever you are when I eat. So, I like to take big bites, go find my person, and then crunch away. Rinse, repeat. You're not a neat freak are ya? Good!

I love ice cubes, so please let me have as many as I want. If you don't, no worries, I have already figured out how to press the ice maker lever in my foster home, so I can get ice whenever I want! See? I can be self sufficient!

So, I told you a little about me, here's what I need from you:

I need you to have a sense of humor, as that will make life with me much more enjoyable. Foster mommy says that I am a big clown and I am not to be wasted on someone who does not appreciate my fun loving nature. I really need you to be active. I get restless and bored at home if I am I not able to get out there and get my legs moving. I don't want to come across as sounding demanding, but I would really love a nice sized back yard. I get what mom calls "the doggy crazies" and like to turn my burners on and sprint around the yard at rocket speed. Mom loves to watch me do this. I love to chase and pounce on balls outside, or have my toys tossed for me. I also get lonely, and would really, really like it if you didn't leave me alone for long periods of time during the day. Mom says I am a lot more calm inside the house when I have had company.

So, what do you think? Am I the bestest friend you have been looking for? Whaddya say we meet up to see if we are a great match together? First, please complete an adoption application for me. Wow, I feel important! I hope to see you soon! To learn more - www.azrescue.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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