Trip is on his way to a foster to adopt home. He was surrendered by his former owners to avoid abuse charges. 

02/01/16 - Tripper

Trip is a 3 to 4 year old male boxer who has not had an easy young life.  He came in as an abuse case from a home where he was being beat up on by another larger intact male.  He was found with multiple new and untreated old wounds.

Trip is a small boxer who has been recovering at the vets.  Everyone loves him at the vets, and he has been a very good patient.  He is now ready for a foster or forever home. 

For now he should go to a home without other dogs.  He has spent at least the last 1.5 years fighting for his life. We are trying to find out a bit more info, but apparently he was in a home with 2 older female dogs and we think he was fine with them.  He has been fine walking near and past other non-reactive dogs.  He even has done well when cat tested, but we won't take a chance. 

He was very good around a volunteer's 9 yr old daughter, but since he has not been around children, we think it best for him to go to a home without young kids. It was a slow introduction with a dog savvy kid. This little guy is a bit hesitant with new situations and needs a home that will step up and be the leaders of the pack.

He walks nicely on a leash, and has been reported good with his food.  He loves, loves, loves playing with balls!

If you have the right stuff, Trip might be the boxer for you.

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.
