Diamond's Info...

Diamond's Story...
Why Choose me?
The first thing Diamond did when I entered his kennel, was give me a gentle hug. He was glad to have a visitor. After I hugged him, he sat while I put the leash on him. I also had to leash his pen mate and little brother Rio. I quickly learned that Diamond knew all about leashes, but Rio did not–I ended up carrying him. I was so relieved that Diamond did not pull and actually walked pretty well on a leash. When we got to the interaction pen, Diamond continued to show me what a well behaved dog he was. He was never rough with Rio during play. I even saw him jump over his brother a few times when Rio ran in front of him. When I was giving them both treats, Diamond never tried to take Rio’s away and always waited his turn. Rio actually seemed to look up to his older brother and copied him. Diamond would always sit and stay for a treat. Rio would sit but found that when he would stay, like his brother, he’d get his treat sooner. I enjoyed playing with these boys and giving them attention. They’re both friendly and handsome dogs that responded to being petted and praised. I did notice that if I raised my hand too suddenly, Diamond would crouch down. I would hate to think that this sweet boy might be mistreated in any way. Come meet Diamond today and find out what a great dog he is!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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