Milo is doing well in training.  He is still very head shy and needs time when meeting new people.  Milo is doing great with other dogs.  He loves to play and enjoys running around the yard with his dog buddies.  Milo is calm and very sweet once he gets to know you.


Milo has settled in at his foster home and is a very sweet boy.  He loves to go for walks and to play with both his foster sister and toys.  Milo does need some work on basic obedience.  He is a timid boy and gets spooked easily by loud noises.  Milo also needs time to warm up to new people.  Milo would do best in an experienced boxer home in a quiet setting.  He needs a forever home that understands he will need time to get used to people and be willing to work with that.  Please apply today to adopt Milo!


Milo was adopted to a home in the city and he is not adjusting well to city life, so he is heading back to rescue for another try at a forever home.  Milo is in need of a foster home as soon as possible.  He has previously lived with children and does well with other dogs.  He does not have history around cats.  Apply today if you are able to help Milo!

Milo's family is dealing with a child with major medical issues and felt it was in his best interest to rehome him.  Milo ended up at the city shelter, who then contacted AABR for help.  Milo will be arriving today at his new foster home.  We will update his page once his foster family learns more about him.

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 3 months to adopt a Rescue Boxer to an approved applicant, depending on your personal circumstances and flexibility.  

Not every home is the right match for a boxer, and 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 at your home visit of other dogs you are interested...  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.
