Austin Boxer Rescue

Arrival Story:
Weighing approximately 40 pounds, Benatar is a petite, 3-year-old, fawn female. This cute gal was discovered wandering in a field in San Antonio. She is heartworm negative and generally healthy, but currently has a corneal abrasion in her right eye. Although still in the process of healing, her eye is expected to fully recover soon. Benatar is friendly with other dogs, but requires slow intros. She is great with children, housebroken, crate-trained, and walks well on a leash. Benatar hasn't been tested with cats yet, but overall, she has wonderful manners and is even trained to use a doggy door! Benatar's hobbies include playing with her foster brother, hunting unsuspecting squeaky toys, and snuggling with her family. This sweet girl also loves to nap, and is reported to have a very cute snore. Benatar's foster family describes her as an excellent watchdog; she doesn't bark just to bark, but she will alert the family if something is amiss. If you're looking for a pint-size playmate to patrol your home, ask to meet Benatar!

Bio:
Meet Pat Benetar! Pat is a gorgeous fawn and white pocket-sized Boxer who weighs in at around 43 pounds. Pat is a low-energy girl who is housebroken, crate-trained, good on a leash, and overall is very well-behaved. She loves cuddling, hanging out with her family, and short bouts of playtime with her toys. She also enjoys the company of other dogs. Pat Benetar has been in rescue for almost a year and is now part of our Silver Hearts program. Why, you ask? Pat Benetar has had several x-rays and there is a slight abnormality in two of the discs in her neck. Due to this, Pat walks with what her foster family refers to as her “cowgirl” walk. She also has a permanent limp in her front left leg. She does take a low-dose pain pill regularly to help deal with this. Due to this, Pat cannot live in a home where the floors are all tile or wood, as these increase her difficulties. She also cannot go for long walks or live in a home where she will need to navigate stairs on a regular basis. Other than her activity limits, Pat Benetar leads a very normal and happy life – she likes toys, cuddling, is able to navigate the doggy door, and climb up on the sofa for a snuggle session! This beautiful little girl enjoys other dogs after a slow introduction and loves children. She is looking for a home who wants a companion dog. Ask to meet this lovely lady today!
