Kia is one special girl.  She is very smart and now gets excited when asked to "go out," "go for a ride," or "go for a walk."  Kia is her foster mom's shadow, but she also has the confidence to stay in bed or her favorite chair when her foster mom is busy around the house.  Kia loves everyone she meets and she wants nothing more than to be loved.  She enjoys time around the 4 year old grandson.  Kia eats well and has learned to "sit."  She does well in her crate during the work day and is completely housebroken.  Kia walks well on leash.  She had her first bath and although she was frightened initially, Kia soon relaxed.  She is now a very happy girl and will continue to learn how to enjoy the good life!


Kia has arrived at her new foster home and is settling in well.  We will post more information as her foster family gets to know her better. 

12/23/15 - Kia

Kia was surrendered to AABR from a puppy mill.  The farmer reported she was good with other dogs and children on the farm.  Kia would do best in a home with a fenced yard and an easy going male dog to help her adjust.  At our vets office, Kia was a super wiggly, friendly, and loving girl. 

She will be arriving soon at her new foster home.  We will update Kias page once we learn more about her.

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.
