Spartacus's Info...

Spartacus's Story...
Spartacus is a 3 year old brindle boy going on 10 months. He is happy, playful and energetic. He has no known health issues.

Spartacus was an owner surrender to a local shelter. He has spent his entire life on a chain in the back yard. The owners got a new puppy and said that Spartacus is aggressive and tried to kill the puppy (they left the two dogs in the backyard, went to work, and when they came home the puppy had a cut on his ear). The injury sounds much more like a play-induced injury than an aggression induced one, but why keep a dog you have had for 3 years when you can just throw it away and get a new one?

We have temperament tested Spartacus with many dogs and he is very social. He currently lives in a doggie daycare playing with between 5 and 15 different dogs at any given time. He was in a foster home and did very well – had no housebreaking accidents, but played to much with their male 10 month old pit bull.

Please consider Spartacus, he is a beautiful dog, a joy to be around and a great addition to any home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spartacus, 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.
