Buster has been in his foster home for 3 weeks now and has settled in really well. He is getting along great with his new foster sister, a 1 yr old female boxer. You can often find them snuggling together and they have figured out how to play tug of war. Buster thrives in the company of another dog and would need this in his forever home. He does get overly excited on leash when he meets new dogs and people, jumping and barking, which is something his foster mom is working with him to correct. Buster is very energetic and loves to play. He also loves to be close to his people. Buster is looking for a forever home that will give him time to adjust and can continue his training. If you can provide a home for Buster, apply today!


Included are a few additional pictures of Buster.  Please offer to foster or adopt this handsome boy! 


Buster is a blind boxer boy who was adopted in December 2012, but is being returned to rescue. There have been some changes in his home, including a new baby, and his family indicated they have not been able to give Buster the time and attention he needs.

Buster is currently living with a newborn and a five year old child. He gets along great with the five year old child inside the home and sleeps with him every night, but can get over stimulated with the activity of young children outside.  For this reason, we feel a home with older children may be better suited for Buster.

Buster has been living with a Pug, who he does great with. Prior to being adopted, he was in a foster home with a female boxer. Buster is a very sweet and loving boy who is in need of a new foster or forever home.

Buster has arrived at his new foster home and is adjusting well!  He has a wonderful disposition and has been a delight in the home.  Buster loves his foster sister, a female boxer.  He has not had any accidents at all and is left with free run of the house during the work day.  Buster does know how to sit and give paw.  It is hard to remember sometimes that this boy can't see.  He has quickly learned the layout of his foster home.  If you are interested in a boxer with a great temperament, apply today for Buster!


Buster did get to see the ophthalmologist and is indeed 100% blind...however, please don't tell him. I had the pleasure of having Buster spend the night with me.  This little guy shocked me more in 24 hours than the last 24 fosters I have had, lol. He is stunning and so full of personality. Buster was a perfect house guest with nothing but great manners. He was great on his leash and loved playing tug of war. He did fairly well on my steps (14 total).  Of course, I helped him with a leash but also watched him sneak up to find me when I ran up to get my keys. I was able to keep him all day before taking him back to the kennel.  Buster met lots of people and loved everybody. He was a huge hit at the Vet's office and I had the same thing said by several....I can't believe he doesn't have a home yet. Buster curled up in a recliner as if to say, well I guess this will work for tonight.  He then got to sleep in a real bed. Buster is a super boy and is sure to make a great addition to a family. If you think you have enough love for this special boy, please apply today & give Buster what he deserves.


Buster is still waiting for a foster or forever home.  Our volunteer reports that he is a very fun boy to be around.  It is hard to tell that he can't see, as Buster loves to jump around and play.  He will be seeing our ophthalmologist next Monday and we will post an update after his visit.  Apply today if you can help get Buster out of the kennel.

Buster is an adorable 3.5 year old male boxer who was surrendered to rescue because his owner moved and couldn't take him.  He was temporarily living at her grandmother's house, but was tied outside because one of the children in the home was allergic to dogs.  Buster was bought from a breeder as a puppy.  The owner indicated that Buster lost his vision last summer.  He loves to ride in the car and will quickly demonstrate his "shake" trick for you.  Buster is reported to be good with children of all ages, cats, and other dogs. 

When our volunteer went to meet Buster, he was nothing but wiggles.  He does jump when excited.  Buster is a very sweet boy and with some time and training, he is going to be a wonderful boxer for a lucky home! 

Buster is being neutered soon and brought up to date on all vet care.  We are in need of a foster home for him to go to so Buster doesn't have to spend a lot of time at the boarding kennel.  Please open your home and heart to foster or adopt this sweet boy!

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.
