Jackpot is being returned to AABR.  His previous adopter has a new baby on the way and Jackpot is not comfortable around toddlers.  Jackpot's adopter also indicated that his family has become increasingly busy with work and the children.  They do not feel like Jackpot is getting the attention he needs. 

Jackpot was just updated on all vet care and arrived at his new foster home, where he will be living with a female boxer.  Jackpot has some arthritis, so would do best in a home without a lot of stairs.  Once he gets settled in, we will be posting more information about this wonderful senior boy! 

1/2014 - Kept by adopter


Jackpot was adopted in 2010, but is now being returned to rescue and is in urgent need of a foster home.  Jackpot's family had a child in 2012.  This child is now walking and more active.  The family indicated that Jackpot does not enjoy being around small children, but that he does fine with the 7 year old child in the home.  Jackpot's family feels he needs a home without toddlers, so they have asked AABR to find a new home for him. 

Jackpot is now 7 years of age. He has some arthritis, so shouldn't be placed in a home with a lot of stairs.  Jackpot is a big boy, but thinks he is a lap dog.  He is extremely loving and enjoys hanging out on the couch.  Jackpot is living in the basement now at his current home, but will be sent to the kennel if AABR can not find a foster home soon.  Please apply today if you can help Jackpot.

7/2010 - Adopted


This handsome boy is still waiting for his forever home. He is used to being alone during the work day, with a mid-day break. Jackpot loves to play with balls. He was previously raised with cats, but hasn't been around them for several years. Jackpot is great with children and other dogs. Apply today if you can provide a forever home for Jackpot!

6/11/10 -

Due to a divorce, Jackpot is in a temporary home with the owner's mother. This home, however, is in the process of being sold due to financial difficulties, and Jackpot is in urgent need of a forever home. He is currently living with an older female boxer, who he has been raised with since he was a puppy. Jackpot would benefit from an active home and he loves to run in his fenced yard. He is crate trained and housetrained. Jackpot is used to being alone during the work day. He loves to sit in your lap, even though he doesn't fit there!

The AABR volunteers that met Jackpot indicated he is a beautiful boy - the pictures do not do him justice! He greeted them with kisses.  Jackpot does know sit, but needs some work on his other obedience commands. He is going to be a wonderful boy for a lucky family.  Jackpot has been well cared for and loved.  Please offer him a forever home!

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.
