Tilda5 year old brown brindle and white American Staff Boxer mix
Tilda is estimated to be about 5 years old, and is a brown brindle and white American Staff Boxer mix, spayed female. Tilda (a.k.a Tilly Willy) is a bundle of cuteness that loves to bite bubbles, race around the play yard, and chill in the sun. Despite the cuteness, our sunny little lady is very frustrated by other dogs and does not know how to calm herself down in these situations. Tilda would do best in a mature household, without other animals or kids. Her adoption has been sponsored.

Chilli we estimate to be about 9 years old, and is a tan and white boxer lab retriever mix, neutered male. Hi, welcome to Chilli! Despite his name, he’ll thaw any heart with his sweet nature.

Franklin8 year old red and white boxer mix
Franklin we estimate to be about 8 years old, and is a red and white boxer mix, neutered male. Franklin is the epitome of a happy, fun-loving dog. Wanting to spend his days on the Daytona Speedway he enjoys racing around the yard, playing with toys, and jumping in the pool to roll around and push his nose through it to make waves. When excited and wanting to engage with you, he might jump up and with his strength and energy level, kiddos may not do best with him.
