Pup Dash, boxer mix

Pup Dash is a darling male boxer puppy being kept at K-9 Lifesavers.

Pup Dash is eager to make friends — he'll get along great with your other dogs. He's been vaccinated.

From Pup Dash's current caretaker:

Dash is a sweet, happy, outgoing boy who loves life. He loves to run and play. He has lots of puppy energy, so a home with a fenced yard would be best. Another playful dog in the home would be great so they could tire each other out.

Lilly, boxer and retriever mix

Lilly is a female boxer and retriever puppy in the care of Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.

She's already been spayed.

Lilly's current caretakers say:

Lilly is a young, energetic girl who will needs lots of play time and long walks. She'll also be happy to curl up with you at the end of the day when she's all played out. She's a huge clown and constantly makes me laugh, including when she's chasing her own tail and barking at herself in the mirror. Lilly is also an incredibly precocious, curious dog. She's always exploring her surroundings.
