In November 2015, at 2 months of age, Bubbles was diagnosed through an MRI to have a congenital syndrome called cerebellar hypoplasia.  She suffers from tremors, moderate coordination difficulties, a tendency to get overstimulated (causing some anxiety), and sensory issues.  Bubbles is still a happy puppy who really doesn't know there is anything wrong with her.  She is going to require a very unique, patient, and understanding forever home.  Her condition leaves her susceptible to injuries if not watched and managed carefully.  Bubbles has a very difficult time with stairs.  She is good with other dogs that can handle her quirkiness and play style.  Bubbles is very interested in playing with cats, even when they are not interested in her.  She is still in a stage that is awkward for any puppy and as she grows, she will hopefully adjust herself to compensate for her disability, but to what extent is still unknown.  If you feel you are that special home that is a good match for Bubbles, apply today for this adorable boxer girl!

AABR received a call for help in early September about a litter of 2 day old puppies who were in immediate need.  Their mother had a C-section and was not producing enough milk.  The owner was unable to care for them and AABR volunteers quickly went into action to get them transported to a foster home who could bottle feed them and nurse them back to health.  Sadly, only three of the nine puppies survived. 

At 2 months of age, both of her siblings were adopted, but Bubbles started to display concerning behavior.  Her symptoms indicated a possible neurological disorder.  Yesterday, Bubbles underwent an MRI and spinal tap to determine what we are dealing with.  This little girl has been through so much.  We will do all we can to help her fight whatever the next battle is.  We will know more about her prognosis once the test results come back, but the MRI showed a cerebral issue.  Please consider donating towards her medical care.  We will post an update as soon as we know more.

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.
