Riggs (formerly known as Rocco) is being returned to rescue due to a change in family circumstances.  This is the second time he has come into rescue through no fault of his own.  He is a wonderful boy - great with kids of all ages and with other dogs.  Riggs lived with a cat when he was younger, but has not been around them for several years.   Riggs is now 4 years old. His owner reports that he is housetrained and crate trained, although he is usually just left with free run and sleeps on his dog bed.  Riggs is a very loving boy.  We will update his pictures soon.  If you can provide a forever home for Riggs, apply today.

This boy is going to be a wonderful addition to a lucky family

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please first read our Adoption Procedure, by clicking on the link at the top of this page, 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.
