Pickles's Story...
Hi, my foster mom named me Pickles because I was a challenge when she first took me in and she called me a real pickle to work with! Now I've become a "sweet" pickle! I am a boxer mixer with something smaller, but no one is sure what. I weighed 38 pounds when rescued, but should weigh about 45 pounds. I am about 1 1/2 years old and full of puppy energy. I am learning to walk on a leash and know how to use a doggy door, but sometimes I get so involved in playing that I forget. I sleep in a crate in my foster mom's bedroom at night. I had lots of "separation anxiety" when I first came, but I am getting more confident each day. What helped a lot was that I found another dog to play with and hang out with when my foster mom leaves home. My doggy friend is very quiet when our mom leaves and returns, so I'm copying what she does. If you are looking for a non-alpha second dog, you won't be disappointed. I have a funny habit that my mom has never seen before. I sometimes sit on my tail so that it is tucked underneath me pointing forward and then I wag it to show you how happy I am! I also love to give you kisses and stay close to you. I would be a great dog to take jogging and need regular walks or exercise to keep me relaxed. I will be a good dog park dog. I seem to have no aggression in me so I should be good with kids. I think that cats are fun to chase, so a home without them would be best. My adoption donation is $200. I will be spayed soon, was dewormed, am current on shots and will be micro chipped before going home with you. Please call or text (925) 209-6480 or email for more info or to meet me in person.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pickles, 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.
