Paulie has been moved to a foster home and he is doing great!  His new foster mom indicates that he has been one of the easiest dogs to acclimate. Paulie is crate trained and house trained. He knows his commands and walks well on leash. He is so well behaved in the home and has bonded well to his foster family.  Paulie is going to make a wonderful addition to a lucky family.


Paulie was adopted in May 2008, but is being returned to rescue due to financial reasons and a change in family circumstances. His current home indicates that Paulie is a really sweet boy - he just loves to be with people. Paulie used to participate in doggy daycare before his family moved. He is currently living with Macey (a 3 yr old female who is also available for adoption), indoor cats, and two children (ages 2 months and 14 months).

Paulie knows all of his basic commands. He is completely housebroken and also crate trained. Paulie does get nervous with loud noises and unexpected moves. He would do best in a quiet and calm home. Paulie is good with the children, but can be nervous when they get noisy. He is happiest when he is laying by your feet. Apply today if you can provide a forever home to Paulie!

5/2008 - Adopted!

4/17/08 - Paulie

Meet Paulie, a 44 lb. bundle of love. He was born on January 21, 2007. Paulie has been at the SPCA since the end of February. His parents left him there when they found out that Paulie was suffering with Demodex mites. His Demodex is now almost cured and his hair is starting to grow in.

Paulie was brought into a foster home on 4/1/08. He is intact. The doctor wants to wait until Paulie puts some more weight on before neutering him. We don't know about Paulie's past but when we first got him he looked pitiful, his skin is still scaly in some places and he looks like skin and bones. He has a good appetite, so he should have no trouble "packing on the pounds".

Despite Paulie's heath issues (ALL TOTALLY ON THE WAY TO "CURED") he is a typical Boxer. He loves to play with toys, he has one that he has been carrying around with him for the last 3 days. He is intelligent but at the same time goofy. He loves to curl up on a chair with his humans. He is housetrained. Paulie knows how to "Sit", "Wait" and "Outside". He is getting along very well with all the other dogs , he LOVES playtime (second only to mealtime!)

Are you the right home for this beautiful boy?

Prior to adoption


If you are interested in adopting this dog, please first read the information on our Adoption Procedures, then fill out an online application.

Boxers and Applicants are not matched on a first come, first served basis. Not all applications are approved. On average, it takes between a week and 1 month to adopt a Rescue Boxer to an approved applicant, depending on your personal circumstances and flexibility.  

Matching Boxers suitable for placement with younger children, other dogs, cats, and special needs, yours and theirs, increases the application review time and adoption time.  

And yes, we realize that the Boxer you may have your heart set on, may be adopted before you're approved.   Should your first choices all ready found their forever home, we want you to advise us as to other dogs you are interested in at .  Or let us suggest a few that we feel will match your home.  That is what we are good at.   And be happy for the ones that have been placed... and know that there are way too many fantastic dogs waiting in their place.

Our non-profit organization is wholly comprised of hard-working volunteers whose only reward is seeing our wonderful Boxers placed in loving, permanent homes and given another chance for a happy life. Our process may seem slow, but if you are patient, we will try to provide you with a devoted, loving companion - a Boxer.

We hope you feel that the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
