The Farm at Natchez Trace, a unique pet lodging, grooming, training and day camp facility, will host an Adoption Day for Middle Tennessee Boxer Rescue (MTBR) on Saturday, Feb. 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Members of the public and their pets are invited to the event, which will offer about 15 boxers that currently are ready for new homes. According to MTBR officials, boxer temperaments are usually very even. They are not quick to anger, and are generally very patient.
MTBR has been rescuing and placing boxers since approximately 1990. During this time, they have seen more and more boxers come into rescue as the breed becomes more and more popular.
Most of the rescue’s dogs come from pounds or shelters, some locally, and some from east and west Tennessee, southern Kentucky and northern Alabama.  Most are strays whose owners could not be found, and a few are rescued from abusive situations. Almost without exception, the dogs come into rescue through no fault of their own and usually it is due to an irresponsible or neglectful owner.
The Farm, situated on 18 acres of farmland, offers luxury indoor suites for cats and dogs, grooming, dog daycare and training, indoor playrooms, expansive outdoor play fields, and shaded walking trails along a creek.  The Farm at Natchez Trace is located at 9479 Highway 96 West in Franklin, near the intersection with Natchez Trace.  For more information, call 662-6628 or visit
