Sterling's Story...
Sterling came to us from a local shelter partner in the Jacksonville area. He is deaf and has been through three homes that we know of in his short life. He is still a very young dog and is just under a year old (born in December 2006). Sterling needs an owner who is dedicated to training a deaf dog as he has some issues with vocalization (i.e. barking in his crate) and has been known to counter-surf and jump when he first meets new people. He cannot be let off-leash in an unfenced space as he will run off and cannot hear you calling him to come back. He enjoys outdoor playtime immensly and will run like a deer through the yard playing chase, so someone with a securely fenced yard would be ideal for Sterling. Currently he is working on his leash manners with Angie and she will also get him started with his basic obedience. Visit Deaf Dog Education Action Fund for more information on owning and training a deaf dog. Sterling is being fostered by Angie in the greater Jacksonville area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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