Our spunky, sassy Tessa is ready to start looking for her forever home!! Tessa is two years old, spayed, and up to date on vetting. She is house trained and crate trained, and is currently accustomed to sleeping in her crate overnight. Medically, Tessa does have a few things going on. She is blind in one eye, and will require daily eye drops for the rest of her life. Additionally, due to her allergies, she will need to be on special food, for which cost should be a consideration for any prospective adopters.
Tessa is the sweetest girl who LOVES to cuddle, or even to lay in her bed next to you while you work. She is still learning how to be the best boxer she can be, and her foster parents have been working on increasing her confidence. Therefore, Tessa will require a family dedicated to continuing her training and socialization. Tessa also prefers slow, respectful introductions. She is not a social butterfly, so she will not be a good fit if you regularly have lot’s of company or large gatherings.
Cats are unknown, but we think a kitty might just look a little too much like the squirrels she chases in the yard. Tessa, in true diva fashion, would like to be the only dog in the home. Children are untested in her foster home. Given her endless puppy energy, older children or teens who can’t be toppled over, and are able to understand and respect her boundaries would be best.
Think you might be a good fit for Tessa? Let’s chat!!

Boxer Haven Rescue does not adopt on a first come, first serve basis. Potential adopters that contact us with an interest in one of our dogs are reviewed, and if they are a good fit, their application is sent to the foster family. The foster family then decides which family they will contact. It is our goal to put each dog in their perfect forever home. If you are not contacted regarding a dog you expressed interest in, please continue to follow our website and social media, as it can change daily!
