Boxers and Buddies

An Adoptable Dog



Webster’s story is a long one. We will update as often as we can to keep everyone abreast of his progress. You can also follow him on our Facebook page where there will be weekly updates.Shelter Info


We first heard about Webster on Monday, November 28th. One of our volunteer

s in Northern California spotted his intake photo. She messaged us and asked if we could rescue him.

We knew from his photo that he would need immediate and intensive help. We said “Of Course!!!”

He wasn’t available for release until Thursday, December 1st. Through the efforts of many volunteers, Webster was pulled from the shelter and transferred to another volunteer that transported him to ANOTHER volunteer that took him to Reno.

His first stop on getting to Reno was our vet. img_3777He was diagnosed with demodex mange, a yeast infection, an allergic reaction and neglect. He is at least 10 lbs underweight. He has scratched himself bloody in several areas. His

little tufts of hair that he has is falling out. And yet his little tail keeps wiggling.

His is put on several prescription medications, over the counter medications and holistic treatments.

December 2 – DAY 2:


Webster is obviously pretty uncomfortable. He is settling into his foster home and gets along well with the other 5 dogs he is staying with. He has obviously never been in a house before. He is scared of the TV and not housebroken.

He had his first skin treatment last night and it seemed to relieve some of the itchiness and redness. He has to wear a shirt to keep his skin from bleeding when he bumps into things or scratches himself. The shirt also rubs a little but seems to offer more protection than it rubs.

He is working on his housebreaking, eating well and is taking all of his meds.

There are currently 4 Adoptable Dogs with Boxers and Buddies.

Our adoption fees vary based on the pet’s age, breed, and size. Our adoption fees are higher on puppies because they are easy to place. We use the excess to be able to afford the care for our special needs cases. Vet bills on an individual dog often exceed $1000. We put between $300 and $400 into each and every dog that comes into rescue between vaccinations, dentals, shots, heartworm testing, blood work, spay/neuter, micro-chipping, and everything else they need while in our care. When you adopt a dog from us, we do our very best to make sure you're getting the healthiest dog possible and make sure all health and/or behavioral problems are discussed in detail.

If you think you wish to bring home one of our dogs, please make sure that these requirements are met:

  • You must be at least 21 years of age to adopt a dog.
  • All pets that you currently have must be spayed/neutered and current on their shots. We will verify this information with your veterinarian.
  • Female boxers will only be placed with other female dogs on a case by case basis.
  • You will be required to attend regular obedience classes with your new friend.
  • Dogs will not be adopted out as gifts.
  • All pets will be family companions.

You are now on your way to becoming a happy owner of a very special dog.
