Diesel is being returned to AABR.  After 4.5 years, the family no longer has time for Diesel or his brother, who is being returned to a different boxer rescue.  Diesel will be arriving soon at his original foster home.  We will post more information once Diesel gets settled in. 

5/2011 - Adopted


Diesel is now in foster with two other boxers (a male and a female) and is doing great. Diesel is crate trained, housebroken, and has a great temperament. He does well in the house and doesn't touch a thing. Diesel is just a big love. Please give Diesel that forever home he deserves.

5/17/11 -

Diesel was dumped at a local shelter after we begged the family to work with us over 6 weeks ago before they moved out of town. Sadly, they didn't show up at our free vet appointment to neuter Diesel.  Instead, they just dumped him at our already overcrowded shelter.  Diesel had been their son's dog and their son had gone into the military.  Diesel is 4 years old. His previous family left him at the shelter with nothing: no prior vet care, no food, no blanket, and no donation to help him.  Diesel was scared and lonely. When our volunteers went to walk him, he didn't want to go back in the kennel and he cried for his family.  After we pulled him from the shelter, Diesel was boarded at the vet's office for several days.  He will soon be going to his new foster home. 

Diesel is a big boy, weighing in around 100 lbs. You can tell her hasn't received a lot of exercise and he needs to get in better shape.  Diesel is now neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all vet care.  All he needs now is a forever home. Diesel is reported to be good with kids of all ages. He is also reported to be good with cats and other dogs. Apply today for Diesel!

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.
