This sweet boxer blend female had a rough life until she was brought into the BARC program. She gave birth to seven puppies in someone's backyard and they were not being cared for. Luckily, animal control was notified and they were removed and taken to the shelter where a concerned citizen notified BARC. Of course, we had to help! Maria and all of her puppies are now safe, cared for and loved. Please check back for updates on this sweet little family. Maria is being fostered by Amber.
You may notice the Von Trapp family theme (from The Sound of Music) - very fitting for this lovely family!
Maria is a wonderful lady. She is well behaved and very gentle. She does great on walks and in the car - favoring looking out the back window. She enjoys playing and she would be perfect for someone wanting a companion - someone who is home most of the time. Maria sleeps in her crate at night with no accidents. She sits in the yard and watches the birds and squirrels at the feeders and doesn't chase them or the stray cats that sometimes wander into the yard. We think she would do well with other pets, since on occasion, dogs and cats have been in the rooms when she went through and she had no problem with greeting them.
