Chief continues to do well with his foster family. He gets along great with his foster brother and sister. Chief has a high prey drive, so would do best in a home without cats. He is housebroken and crate trained. Chief loves to run around the yard and would benefit from a securely fenced area. Chief feels it is his job to protect his home, so will need a family that can manage this behavior. He is a typical, silly, and outgoing boy with his foster parents.

Chief is looking for a special adopter. He needs an experienced owner that can manage and work with Chief’s behavior when strangers enter the home. He is able to walk well in public and greet people outside of the home environment. He becomes protective of his family. For this reason, we are recommending a home without children. Chief is in foster with two other dogs, and he does great with them. He loves to run and play in his fenced yard. Do you have what it takes to help Chief? If so, submit an application today.

Chief has recovered well from his surgery and is off all restrictions and ready to move to his forever home! He has been in foster for about 7 weeks. Chief has a foster brother and sister that he hangs out with. He is completely housebroken and allowed free run of the house with his foster brother. Chief will snuggle with you on the sofa or bed. He will also sleep on his dog bed. Chief would do best in a home with a securely fenced yard and another energetic dog to run around with. Because he can be protective of his people and home, we are recommending a quieter setting without small children or a lot of traffic in and out. Chief is continuing to work on greeting new people and getting socialization in his current foster home.  If you feel you are a good match for this adorable boy, apply today for Chief!

Chief visited a specialty hospital last week to examine his salivary mucocele, which is a collection of saliva that has leaked from a damaged salivary gland. The only successful treatment is the removal of the gland and Chief had this surgery completed last week. He is back at his foster home and recovering well. He currently has a drain while it is healing. Chief will return for his recheck appointment in a couple days. This was a large, unexpected surgery and we would appreciate any donations towards his care. The total cost of the surgery was $2100. The prognosis for Chief is excellent following surgery. Please help with Chief’s expenses so we can get him healthy and into his loving, forever home.

Chief is an adorable 5 yr old boxer who was surrendered by his owner to find a family that could provide more time and attention. He previously lived with young children and a female dog. Chief was transported into rescue yesterday and is currently at our vet to be neutered. We also discovered that he has a salivary mucocele, which is from a damaged salivary gland or duct. Chief will also have this examined and treated.  He will be arriving at his new foster home next week.  Chief traveled well in the car and did great meeting new people on his transport.  We will update his page once his foster family learns more about him. Get your application in soon for this adorable boy!
