Clyde is doing wonderful in his foster home.  He loves to snuggle and be near his people.  Clyde is also getting along great with his foster sister, a female boxer.  He visited the vet today and was found to be anemic.  Clyde came into rescue in terrible shape, but is looking better with each week.  He still needs to gain some weight and is finishing his treatment for hookworms.  Due to his rough past, Clyde deserves a forever home where he will be loved and spoiled!


Clyde has been seen at the vet and had a severe case of Coccidia and parasites.  He has been treated for those and now should be able to gain some much needed weight.  Clyde was transported this evening to his new foster home.  He was very sweet with everyone he met on the transport.  We will update Clyde's page once he gets settled in and his foster home learns more about him.   


Clyde was surrendered to the shelter by his owner.  He is reported to do well with dogs his size and with people.  Clyde would do best in a home without cats or smaller dogs.  He is currently in a kennel run at the shelter with another dog and is not having any problems.  We are looking for a foster home for Clyde to go to once he arrives in rescue.  If you are able to foster this boy, apply today!

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.
