Runts is a young female boxer. She is crate trained and in her home environment she was housebroken. Runts loves children, but she is very exuberant and not recommended for children under 8 years old unless the child is familiar with big, bouncy dogs- she will accidently knock them down. She is good with large dogs but is aggressive to small dogs, cats and other small animals. She is very intelligent and athletic and would do well with a VERY active family. She can jump a 6 to 8 foot fence without any trouble at all and CANNOT be left outside without a fenced enclosure with a roof at any time. Runts has had some obedience although a formal class is required with adoption If you're interested in me, please visit our website or e-mail. IF YOU LEAVE A VOICEMAIL MESSAGE IT WILL NOT BE RETURNED FOR SEVERAL DAYS!

Boxers and Buddies is operated 100% by the help of volunteers. The volunteers spend their spare time helping dogs in need find new homes. Our volunteers have families, jobs, and dogs on their own that keep them very busy. They help when they can, so please be patient with our volunteers. If we don't get back to you in a timely fashion, don't hesitate to send a reminder email our way and we'll do what we can to get back to you. We do not have a 'shelter'. All dogs in need of homes are either in their surrendering home, a foster home, or at a boarding facility. As much as we want the dogs in rescue to be rehomed as quickly as possible, we all have time and area constraints that can sometimes slow the process down. Please know that we take rehoming dogs very seriously and want to make sure all of the dogs we place go to the right families. That can take time, so again, please be patient.
