Coby is still waiting for a forever home.  We have discovered that he gets very excited when new people come into his home, so his foster mom is working with a trainer to help his behavior.  For this reason, we are recommending older children.  Coby loves to snuggle and is a very sweet boxer boy.


Coby is doing well in his foster home.  He is very playful and loves his toys.  Coby has done well in his crate and is housebroken.  He would love to have a fenced backyard to run and play in.  Coby is going to be a wonderful addition for a lucky family!

1/10/16 -

Coby has already been in two different homes.  His first owner did not have time for him.  The second owner recently surrendered Coby to the shelter because he was too large and was accidentally knocking over the toddlers in the home.  Coby will be four years old at the end of the month and he weighs in at 93 lbs.  Coby's previous home reported that he was good with both cats and other dogs.

Coby just arrived at his new foster home.  His foster mom reports that he is super sweet, playful, and is already giving lots of kisses.  Even though he is a big boy, Coby is very easy to handle.  He would do best with a fenced yard to run and play in.  Coby is housebroken and is doing well in his crate.  If you can provide a forever home for this handsome boy, apply today to adopt Coby!

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.
