Update: 6/24/14: Kayla has been learning how to be an inside pup & is adjusting well. She is now house trained & is doing very well with her “sit stay” before getting fed or going outside. She is very much a puppy still and will need a patient home that will continue to work with her & manage her energy. Someone that wanted to teach her Agility or would like to jog with her may be ideal. Due to her rambunctious personality I would suggest she goes to a home without small children as she will knock them over. She loves playing with our male boxer but can get a bit vocal & rough when she gets excited. She is easily corrected with a squirt from the water bottle or a stern “no” & is submissive. She will need a home without cats or small critters as she loves to chase birds, squirrels, chipmunks & yes even butterflies. She is an absolute kissy-face, a complete snuggle bug & calmer when inside. She is such a pretty girl with a silky coat mix of brown & black that pictures don’t do justice. She loves running in the yard, chasing the ball & loves toys. Kayla has come a long way & has a lot of love to give the right forever home, she deserves to have the very best. Kayla is so sweet & cute…we know if you just met her, she’d steal your heart! Please complete an Adoption Application under the Adoption tab at the top of this page.

Meet Kayla. She is a petite, female boxer mix. Her life to this point has been riddled with intense neglect. She had been tied outside and ignored (no food, no water, no protection from inclement weather). The next door neighbor’s children had taken her under their wings, providing food and water for her. Until that point the children said Kayla had been drinking rain water only. Kayla would become entangled in her lead, and struggle to untangle herself, only to become tangled to the point she was immobile. There are some scars/marks on her little body to support this. Ugh! At that point, Kayla had no recourse but to whine, not being able to move at all. The neighbors had been feeding Kayla as well. As soon as Kayla’s people told the neighbors they didn’t want her anymore, the neighbors contacted rescue. Kayla is now in foster care. She is a happy, 32 lb. little girl. She does well with other dogs and has been fine when in the company of children. Kayla has been spayed and is now current on vaccines. Kayla’s cherry eye surgery is the last hurdle she needs to jump before, landing in a terrific fur-ever home.
