Ernie's foster mom reports that he is a huge sweetheart.  He will now immediately sit for food and will look up at you with those big brown eyes.  He is starting to enjoy walks has no problem wearing his coat.  Ernie is starting to run and play in the yard with his foster sister, Diamond.  After a visit to the vet, Ernie began medication for thyroid and is also being treated for a bladder infection that was ignored in his past.  He has started to attend Doggy Daycare when his family is gone during the day and he has done great there.  Ernie loves riding in the car.  He has made such great improvements since arriving at his foster home in late November.


Ernie has arrived at his new foster home and is settling in well.  He is getting along with his new foster sister, a senior female boxer.  Ernie is still trying to figure out all the changes in his life and wants to remain close to his foster dad.  We will continue to update his page as Ernie settles in.

Ernie and Spotty are 10 yr old siblings who were surrendered to the shelter because their owner passed away.  Ernie is a pretty laid back guy.  He did great with other dogs at the shelter and even ignored the cats.  Ernie will be arriving at his new foster home this weekend, where he will be living with a senior female boxer.  We will update his page with more information once his foster family learns more about Ernie.

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.
