Cally is a 2 year old female boxer who was brought to a vet clinic to be euthanized over a month ago.  She was very thin, almost bald, and had deep pyoderma (a severe skin infection).  Cally had suffered from allergies her entire life and her puppy mill owner did not want to try allergy foods or long term allergy treatments to help give her relief.  The vet at the clinic could not euthanize such a young, sweet dog.  Cally was clearly in a lot of pain, but licked her face repeatedly. 

Cally required a lot of care and the vet personally treated her to help give this special girl a better life.  For the past month, Cally has been on antibiotics and a low dose of Prednisone to help heal her skin.  She has been getting medicated baths three times a week.  Cally is also exclusively on an allergy food. 

With treatment, Cally's skin has healed nicely.  She still has patches of bare skin, but her skin infection is gone.  Her bloodwork is normal and she is now off all medications.  This girl is an amazing dog and the vet has reached out to rescue to help find Cally an equally amazing home. 

Cally gets along well with the other two large breed dogs, but since she loves and craves human attention so much - she would also do well as an only dog.  Cally is very energetic and has a heart of gold.  She is learning how to walk on a leash, but does not know any commands other than sit.  Cally would do best with a fenced yard.  She is mostly housebroken and never goes in her crate.  Cally has never met a human she does not love.  She does not get along well with small dogs or cats.

Cally is now ready to find a forever home that can continue her care.  If you feel your home is a good match for Cally, apply today to adopt this special girl!

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.
