Washington, NC: Boxer in Gassing Shelter

Deaf female boxer in GASSING will be killed MONDAY
Anyone who can help this dog, email Crystal at and she will get you in touch with the shelter.
Well, bad news!!!  & just like we thought unfortunately! Ghost was brought back to the GASSING shelter!!! (24 hrs later!) Not her fault AGAIN!! 
Here's what IBCR's Mary & Denyce had to say: "Ghost is back at the shelter. Nothing she did...the woman who adopted claims her husband did not want her and her Boston Terrier did not like her. Hope we can get Ghost out of there. The place/shelter is on overload and Monday 1/31 looks like it will be a really bad day for all."
Here's what's known:
Female, spayed
    4 years old, deaf,
    Housetrained / Crate trained
    Good with other dogs
    Good with older children -
    Playful and friendly
    May be a little 'mouthy' when playing but never bit/nipped
    Responds to simple hand motions but not actually 'trained to hand
    The most recent owner only had her for about a year, never took her to a vet. Gave his own "7in1" vaccinations from Tractor Supply. Rabies is out of date. Reason for surrender - he is currentlyworking 14 hr days and no one else at home to care for the dogs. Also turned in a hound/shepherd mix, 3 yrs old, female. 


  1. I work at a shelter in SC and will try to make room for her today. Anyone who could get her TO SC, she'd have room at a no-kill here. Ask for Hannah at Pets Inc 803 739 9333

  2. I will come get her.. give her a wonderful home with my boxer, George. Please call me 423.314.7939. Shelby Dobbs

  3. If Ghost is not already rescued I would like to assist in anyway I can. I could provide shelter for her until her furever home is found Theresa 910-467-6633 Please let me know.

  4. I see she is no longer on the posted on CBR's website was she rescued?

  5. What is the status of this boxer? Sharing her on my FB Page Boxers Needing Rescue and would like to know an update if possible.
