Diggy is adjusting nicely in his new foster home. He is slowly being introduced to our two female dogs and he is really enjoying being part of a pack. Diggy needs to have slow introductions to other dogs because he is a little bit timid around new dogs. He is as sweet as can be when meeting children of all ages. He is very gentle with them and enjoys their company. Diggy is a very easy, well-mannered boy that will make a great addition to any family. He walks good on the leash, but needs to gain a little more confidence doing so. We are working with him on that and within the past couple of days, he has already gotten much better. If you can provide a forever home for Diggy, apply today!


Diggy is back in rescue due to an unexpected change in family circumstances, which made it in Diggy's best interest to be rehomed. His previous adopters indicate that he is a wonderful boy and it was very difficult to see him leave their home.  Diggy is housebroken and very tolerant of children. He is a sweet and affectionate boy.

Diggy arrived at a foster home this evening and his new foster mom will send an update once she gets to know him better. Apply today if you are interested in providing a forever home to Diggy!

Diggy and Tucker have been in a temporary home, but they are arriving at our boarding kennel tomorrow.  Diggy is in urgent need of a foster home.  These boys should be separated into different homes, but we feel Diggy would do best in a home with other dogs.  He is a very submissive boy and is definitely a follower with other dogs.  Diggy is wonderful with people.  He has been living with two young children, 2 and 4 yrs old, and he is great with them!  He is very sweet with people and really enjoys attention.  Diggy always has lots of wiggles and kisses for everyone he meets.  If you can provide a foster or forever home for Diggy, please let us know! 


Diggy and Tucker were originally posted this past October when their owner thought she would have to sell her home and move due to a divorce. In December, she realized she could keep her home and decided to try to keep both boys. After several months, she has contacted rescue because she does not have the time as a single parent to care for both of them. She has been working longer hours and would like to find a family for Diggy and Tucker that can give them the love and attention that they deserve.

These boys will need a fenced yard to run and play in at their new home. Both boys live with a young child and are great with people. If you can provide a forever home for Diggy and Tucker, apply today!

What could be better than adopting one boxer than adopting two boxers who are already bonded and get along great with each other! Tucker and Diggy are sadly being surrendered to rescue because their owner is getting divorced and being forced to sell her home. She has contacted rescue for help in finding these boys a safe home. We would love to find a forever home where they can remain together because they are very bonded with each other. Their owner reports that they do everything together.

Tucker was purchased from a breeder and Diggy is his biological brother. Tucker loves to give kisses and hugs. He knows all of his basic commands and is left with free run during the work day. Diggy loves to run and needs a fenced yard at his new home. He also really enjoys water. Diggy is already neutered and is up to date on vet care. He is currently living with a 5 yr old child and he plays well with other dogs in the neighborhood, small and large. Please apply today and offer to give these boys a forever home where they can remain together!

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.
