Gemma's Story...

Transport is available to Sac/Davis area etc for approved adopter or foster.

Gemma is a sweet girl that definitely suits her name, meaning "precious gem or jewel". She is a female brindle Boxer/Plott Hound mix that is about 4 years old and weighs 45lbs. She has a very unique look and is one special girl!

Gemma had lived with a family that came onto hard times and could no longer care for her anymore, so sadly they dropped off at a rural high kill shelter. She was a shelter staff favorite, and when we heard her story we knew had to help save her, to give her a second chance for a loving forever home. She is currently in temporary boarding, waiting for a suitable new family to come along and take her home.

Gemma is a mellow, well-behaved dog that appreciates every bit of human attention she can get. She is a good listener and walks well on a leash. She has likely not had any past training, but she is a good learner and would appreciate new owners that will work with her on basic training. She would be great in a family with kids and also seems to do fine with dogs her own size, but likely not so good with cats.

Gemma is not a demanding dog and would love to be your loyal companion and just hang out with you.
If you can provide this "precious gem" the kind of loving forever home that she deserves, please first submit an application form, found at:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sacramento 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 Sacramento 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/Plott Hound breeders who help with Boxer/Plott Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sacramento paves the way for another one to be saved.
