Punkin's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Punkin's Story...
Please don't tell Punkin that we listed her as having special needs. She doesn't know. She arrived here at the farm (for foster care) the day before Thanksgiving 2011 - when she was about 6 months old. We quickly noticed that despite her perky personality, she was not putting weight on one of her rear legs. We've done x-rays and repeated them. The best theory seems to be that she suffered a traumatic injury (hit by a car?) as a puppy and the hip has never healed 100%. There seems to be bone-on-bone rubbing, giving her arthritis in the joint. With time though, we've seen her grow stronger and use the leg more and more. She now weighs about 30 pounds, and is full of personality. She plays and wrestles with her foster sisters - and gets along best with dogs her own size (or smaller). She would do well with children, and would be content to be an only-dog, too. Warning: Shes an avid licker! She loves to snuggle and tries to find the warmest spot to sleep even if that happens to be your head. She's house trained and uses a double-doggie door with ease! Please call Ms. Jody for more information at 352-316-5155 or email her at HeflinJ@bellsouth.net for an adoption application. Thank you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Punkin, a Orange Lake Boxer/Plott Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Plott Hound for sale in Orange Lake, or seeking a Boxer/Plott Hound dog from a breeder in Orange Lake.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Orange Lake 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 Orange Lake 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/Plott Hound breeders who help with Boxer/Plott Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Orange Lake paves the way for another one to be saved.
