Well, I have been in my foster home for three weeks now and I love it here!  I have a wonderful foster brother and sister, Murphy and Mystical.  My foster parents are so loving and patient with me.  While I was sick for a few days with an upper respiratory infection, my foster mom would wake up in the middle of the night and sit next to me, promising I would get better soon. 

Every day I am gaining more confidence, but I am still cautious of new people and surroundings.  I love being right next to my foster siblings and parents, especially when they let me on their bed.  Snuggles and play time are my favorites!

My foster mom really loves me and I give her kisses every chance I get.  When she comes home from work, I am so excited to see her!  I know my forever family is out there that will be just as kind, loving, and gentle to me. 

The sadness is completely gone from my eyes and I am a happy boy now.  Thank you for giving me a second chance! 


Mulligan has now been neutered and will be ready soon for his forever home.  He needs some time to warm up to new people, but Mulligan is an extremely affectionate boy once he trusts you.  He greets his foster mom every day with nub wagging and lots of kisses! 


Mulligan has been in his foster home for a week now.  He has made himself quite comfortable and enjoys being around the other dogs.  He follows his foster siblings everywhere, and loves to play and snuggle with them.  Mulligan is extremely playful and affectionate.  His goofy side and confidence is coming out more with each passing day.  Mulligan is still very cautious with strangers and needs time to learn to trust new people.  He was neutered today and is now up to date on all vet care.  We will continue to update his page with his progress. 


Mulligan was transported into rescue this weekend and just arrived at his new foster home.  He is very uncertain of himself, so will require a home with a lot of patience and who will take things slowly.  Mulligan absolutely loves other dogs and needs a forever home with another dog to help his confidence.  He has acclimated well to his foster parents and they report Mulligan is a huge love bug!  He loves to climb in their laps to be held and petted.  Mulligan has finished all medications and is up to 72 lbs!  He will be scheduled for his neuter soon.  Once this has been completed, Mulligan will be ready to find the perfect forever home for him!


Mulligan is gaining weight nicely  and now absolutely loves human attention.  He particularly enjoys being scratched behind the ears.  The vet indicated that Mulligan is no longer contagious, so he will be arriving soon at his new foster home!


Mulligan is doing well in his temporary foster home.  He has a good appetite and takes his medication in canned food.  The sarcoptic mange is being treated with Revolution and he just received his second dose.  Mulligan is much more alert now and is becoming vocal.  We are happy he is finally starting to feel better.  He seemed to really enjoy his first medicated bath.  Mulligan's medical expenses are currently around $500 due to his emergency vet treatment.  If you can help towards Mulligan's bills, please consider donating to help this boy with his continued recovery.  We are looking forward to when Mulligan is cleared for transport and will be able to join AABR!

12/15/15 -

Mulligan and his female companion were discovered at a trash dump and volunteers tried for weeks to catch them.  They were finally able to catch Mulligan on Sunday evening, but sadly his companion had already passed away.  Mulligan was nudging her and did not want to leave her side.  Once he was pulled away, volunteers took him immediately to the emergency vet.

Mulligan has sarcoptic mange and a secondary skin infection.  He is also slightly anemic, likely from parasites.  He began medication recently to help his skin.  Mulligan is very painful to the touch right now.  He received his dewormer and hopefully the other medications will help him feel better soon.  Mulligan is eating well and is being given an iron supplement.  Once he feels better, Mulligan will receive a medicated bath.  He is really enjoying having regular meals and a soft, warm bed to sleep on. 

Mulligan will remain in his temporary foster home until he is no longer contagious and is cleared for transport.  Sarcoptic mange is very treatable.  We are currently looking for a foster home that can give Mulligan the care he will need once he arrives in rescue.

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.
