Kelly, boxer and American Staffordshire terrier mix
Kelly is a darling female boxer and American Staffordshire terrier puppy staying at Boxers Mutts & Wiggle Butts Rescue Inc.
Kelly gets along well with other dogs. No need to worry: She's already house-trained. Her vaccinations are up to date.
From Kelly's current caretaker:
Kelly is a five-month-old pup who was thrown out like trash from a moving truck. Her siblings were picked up after it happened, but she was found the following morning. This is because she was injuried when she landed and wasn't able to keep up with the others. She has since recovered and loves to run and play. Kelly is a big snuggler and will try to be your shadow once you gain her trust. She has done well with kids as well as dogs both big and small.

Notes from Bosley's caretakers:
Bosley is a happy-go-lucky dog with a lot of love to give. He likes to sit by your feet and just be near you ready to snuggle. He is mellow like a mastiff, but does have your typical tendencies. He is doing great with potty training and doesn't have any accidents when let out accordingly.
