1 1/2 yr old Deaf Boxer in Arkansas Needs Home!

UPDATED: ADOPTED!


Meet Lucky!!!

Lucky is a DEAF Boxer, located in Arkansas. Homeward Trails has helped to rescue several dogs from that part of the country and hope to rescue Lucky soon too!
Notice that Lucky is sticking his tongue out in his photo! - That is Lucky's response to his former owners who wouldn't “post bail” for him when he ended up at a shelter in Arkansas. They knew he was at the shelter but wouldn't pay the fine to take him home! Can you imagine?! He's okay with that now though, because he has been told that he will now find a true forever home - a home that won't allow him to wander again. This boy is a year and a half old, heartworm negative, neutered and all shots are up to date. He also has the most beautiful eyes and a smile that never quits. A true clown looking for a home that has a sense of humor - he loves everybody and everything that he comes into contact with. Are you looking for a bright and happy dog that will keep you laughing? Then Lucky might be the one for you. He is deaf but he doesn't care, actually he has never noticed, and neither will you. He will watch you with those gorgeous eyes and wait until you tell him what to do. Lucky is a really good find for the right home. He is moderately active, so if you like to exercise outdoors (walks, jogs, etc), Lucky would love that! Lucky must be an indoor dog – and he should never be outside unsupervised or unattended – that’s probably how he wound up at the shelter in the first place! He is wonderful with people and children – very friendly and sweet. He would love a new home with people who will love him and treasure him…and make him feel…LUCKY!! Whoever adopts him is sure to feel that way! If you are interested in adopting Lucky, please go to www.homewardtrails.org, complete the adoption questionnaire and email it to: sarahcapalbo@hotmail.com – thank you for your interest in this handsome boy!

dear anonymous,

it doesn't matter where you live. shelters have a transportation system where dogs can be brought to you. if you are serious and interested, please do contact the email address for the boxer. keep us posted on your progress.

Raychelle is correct in what she said with the exception that it is normally the rescue, be it an individual or a group, who arranges the transportation. Sometimes a shelter has connection with rescues they rely on for help with transportation if it means saving an animal. Hope this helps.
