Meet Walley, a 6-year-old Boxer Mix who came to us as an owner surrender due to no fault of his own. His family found him alongside the road when he was about 6 months old. He is a big lover and he gets along great with other dogs. Walley is house-trained and he loves to lounge on the couch. He has been neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
