Introducing Kingston ❤️

Kingston is a 2 year old, 80lb white boxer. He is not deaf, but does appear to have selective hearing, just as most boxers do! 😜 He’s a big bouncy boy who loves to play. He enjoys playing with his friends at the shelter, and emptying his toy bucket, every chance that he gets! He loves cookies, cuddling, walks and zoomies! Kingston’s personality will keep you laughing!

This goofy pooch will need a very special home. Someone who understands the breed, and their high energy level. Kingston does have a grade 2 heart murmur. He will need a family who can monitor his health and activity. This does not slow him down in the slightest, and diagnostic testing shows no other issues.

Kingston will need a home with older children, as he will knock smaller children over. He does not realize his size, and his back legs are made of springs! Kingston will need a home with a tall fence or leash walking only. He can escape shorter fences. A meet and greet will be required for any potential adopters who have another dog in the home. Kingston’s home will need to be feline free!

Kingston is up to date con core vaccines, has been deworme, and given monthly flea and tick preventative. He is heartworm negative, and neutered!

His adoption fee is $85 but his potential adopter still needs an approved adoption application.
