Tonto's Story...
Tonto is a fun loving 10-12 week old boxer mix currently weighing about 15-20lbs. His pictures do not do him justice, he is much more adorable in person. Personality plus with this little man. He is great with kids and dogs his size or bigger. He is good with smaller dogs and cats but being a pup could be a little energetic for some. He's not mean to them. Just wants to play. He is crate trained and is doing well with house breaking. Still needs a little work but has a great start. He is watching and learning from his fellow foster siblings. He's a smart boy too. He loves everyone He meets. Will lean his head on your shoulder to give hugs. He would make a great family but in the mean time his foster family is really enjoying him.
Puppies take a few months to be fully potty trained. Please do not expect a puppy to be fully potty trained until about 4 months of age. Remember....Puppies chew EVERYTHING! Puppies can cry at night. Puppies need a lot of attention and training!
We discourage puppies going into homes that would be left for 8 hours a day while you are at work as it is detrimental to their socialization needs and potty training. These puppies will need discipline and training for the next year of their life. We are hoping we can find a home that is wiling to make this commitment for the duration of the pup's life!
Tontohas been examined by a vet and received his first puppy shots/deworming. He will get the rest of his puppy shots, big boy shots, and will be neutered and microchipped once old enough by Hope 4 Paws. An adoption application is required via email prior to meeting any Hope 4 Paws dog in its foster home. In most cases, breeds stated in the posting are merely our best educated guess as we do not know the history of many dogs that come into the rescue.

The adoption application is available at
The application can be emailed to Molly at
The adoption fee of $275 covers all vetting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tonto, a Plainfield Boxer/Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Plainfield, or seeking a Boxer/Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Plainfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Plainfield 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 Plainfield 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/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Boxer/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Plainfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
