Blue is doing well in foster and is such a happy, playful boy!  He is now crated when left alone and is doing well with that.  Blue really enjoys his walks and also loves to snuggle with his foster mom.  He is getting along well with both of his foster siblings, a male and female boxer.  We received wonderful news a few days ago that all of Blue's lumps that were removed were completely benign!  Blue is ready to find a forever family of his own.  If you are interested in adopting Blue, apply today!


Blue has arrived at his new foster home and is settling in well.  He is living with two other boxers, a male and a female.  Blue is like a big puppy and is very playful.  He would love to be placed in a home with a young female dog, but would also be fine as an only dog.  He is completely housebroken and loves people!  If you are interested in adopting Blue, apply today!


Blue, formerly known as Al, is being returned to rescue due to a new baby in the home.  He is now 6 yrs old.  Blue previously lived with a dominant female boxer and cats.  He liked to chase the cats, but was not aggressive with them.  Blue is housebroken and has wonderful manners.  He just arrived at his new foster home, where he is living with both a male and female boxer.  We will update his page as soon as his foster home gets to know him better.  Apply today if you are interested in giving Blue a forever home!

He will be neutered this week and then going into a foster home. We will update his page as soon as we get to know him better. Thank you for your interest in Al!

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.
