Yukon is an adorable, young boy who is still waiting for his perfect match to find him.  Yukon would do best with a tall, privacy fence or in a home that will walk him on leash.  He gets along well with his foster siblings - he loves to play and wrestle with them.  Yukon is making improvements with the crate and he is completely housebroken now.  He loves being around his foster parents.  Yukon needs slow introductions with new people, and then he will be your best friend once he gets to know you.


Yukon is still waiting for his forever family to find him.  He is making steady progress in his foster home.  Yukon will need a patient home that will give him time to adjust.  He has settled in great and always wants to be touching his foster parents or curled up in their lap.  This boy craves attention from people!  Yukon would do best in a home with a female dog and a fenced yard.  He is up to date on all vet care and ready for adoption!


Yukon has been neutered and is now ready for his forever home.  He is looking for a home with a female dog and a fenced yard.  Yukon can be nervous when meeting new people, so will need some time to gain your trust.  Once he gets to know you, Yukon is a very sweet boy.  He would do best in a quiet environment until he becomes more comfortable with living in a home.  If you are willing to continue Yukon's training and socialization, apply today for this handsome boy!


Yukon is settling in better with each day in foster.  He voices his dislike of the crate, but is learning it is a safe place.  Yukon would do best in a home with a female dog.  He has learned to sit and his foster parents are working on other commands.


Yukon has arrived at his new foster home, where he will be living with two other dogs.  Once he is cleared for surgery, Yukon will be neutered.  He is quickly learning the comforts of a loving home.  We will update Yukon's page as he gets settled in.

1/10/16 -

Yukon and Lulu were seized from their owner due to neglect.  They are both very thin and in rough shape.  Yukon and Lulu were taken immediately to be seen by a vet.  Yukon has been dewormed and has started medication for his skin.  Yukon's temporary foster home indicates that he is eating well and is very sweet.  He will be transported soon to Maryland.  We will update Yukon's page with more pictures and information once he arrives in rescue and gets settled in at his foster home.

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.
