Zoey is coming back into rescue and desperately needs a new home or foster home as soon as possible. If you can help Zoey, apply today! We will be posting a new update soon.  Included are some new photos. 

11/2011 - Adopted!

9/6/11 -

Zoey is a 7 yr old female boxer who was surrendered to a local shelter by her owners for financial reasons. Zoey lived with children (ages 6-12), another dog (a Pug) and a cat - and was reported by her previous owner to be great with all of them. They also reported that she is housebroken, enjoys car rides, and is very loving and affectionate. Zoey loves to play in water!

Zoey has chronic KCS (dry eye) which is currently being treated with Optimmune ointment applied to her eyes twice a day. Zoey is looking for her chance at a happily-ever-after. I met Zoey at the shelter and she was a very sweet, gentle and well-mannered girl. She also walked great on a leash. It breaks my heart that she is not in a home. Please apply to adopt this great girl!  She will be going into a foster home soon and we will post more information once her foster family gets to know her better.

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.
