Basil's Story...

shoe and dog

Our foster dogs live as family members in the foster home until chosen for adoption.

Hi, my name is Basil.


I am a four year old Boxer Mix. I first came to the shelter as a stray. I was adopted. My owners brought me back because the other dog in the house just didn't like me coming into HIS home. I am OK around other dogs but have never spent time around kids or cats. I need exercise which means I need to be walked. No couch potato family for me. At least here at the shelter I have my basic needs met, like food and water plus a roof over my head. However, I am longing to find my forever home and a family to love. I have plenty of love to give. Do you have room in your heart and your home for me?? Come and have a meet-n-greet with me.

I am a young man at heart and I weigh around 55 pounds. I have been checked out by a veterinarian and neutered. I received a set of preventative shots, have been wormed, and tested negative for heartworms.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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