Beau — Hillsborough County
Need a trusty navigator? Beau knows the way — to your house and your heart. November is national Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, and Beau’s ready for his second act. After arriving as a stray to a local shelter, Beau had just five days to find a lifeline. Come meet this grownup and learn why 8 is great: he’s delightfully calm, silly and smart. He comes neutered, microchipped, healthy and housebroken. Beau is a purebred flashy-fawn and white male boxer of 48 pounds. He gets along great with his foster sis and is ready to wiggle his frisky docked tail for a fine, forever family. Beau knows you’re looking for the right stuff, and there are other wise-guys (seniors) waiting, too. Call Boxer Rescue Angels of Florida at 800-847-5196 or visit FlBoxerAngels.org.
