Scarlett, boxer and American bulldog mix
Scarlett is a charming female boxer and American bulldog mix in the care of All Breed Rescue & Training.
Scarlett gets along well with other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment and a home without small children. She is already spayed, house-trained and has had all her shots.
Scarlett's current caretakers say:
Scarlett is a young, silly, affectionate boxer mix. While she does need some time to warm up to new people, once you are her friend, she will be your buddy for life. She would be a great companion for someone who works from home or is retired. She walks lovely on leash and would be a great hiking buddy.
