Sara, the one-year-old Boxer mix, is available for adoption from Lighthouse Animal Shelter in New Bedford.

I'm a beautiful, well-mannered girl. I am pretty gentle and like to be close to my people. I'll come right up to a stranger and ask for pets and will want to sit in your lap. I prefer slow introductions with other dogs. Once I'm friends with a dog, I love to play and have fun in the yard with them. I am polite and know how to sit for treats.

 Lighthouse Animal Shelter is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 organization that works to promote the welfare of animals at risk of euthanasia. In addition, we work with the community to maximize efforts in reducing pet overpopulation. We rescue all of our dogs from high-kill shelters down south (the majority being from Kentucky, South Carolina, and North Carolina) and transport them to our shelter for adoption. The adoption fee for all dogs is $375. This helps cover the cost of medical care received. All dogs are fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and microchipped.
