Pebbles is continuing to thrive in her foster home.  She loves balls and has created her own play area in the yard with seven at last count!  She is content to play by herself, but is eager to jump in when she sees her siblings playing a good game of chase.  After play time with her siblings, this girl likes her rest and relaxation.  She has snuggled in every dog and people bed in the house.  Pebbles is very much at ease and is proving to be a wonderful, easygoing dog.  She requires very little, but has a lot to give. 

Recently, Pebbles helped at an Adopt a Boxer Rescue table at a pet blessing and she was a sport.  There were over 40 dogs and 100 people/children who visited in under two hours.  Pebbles allowed unknown faces to approach and pet her.  She even wagged her nub and snuck in a boxer kiss to a child.  Of course, she got in on the action and was blessed - because who couldn't use some extra blessings!

The big outing of the week was to see a special orthopedic veterinarian who examined Pebbles and indicated her quirky leg is simply scar tissue from a previous, untreated sprain.  A little pain management is all it will need.  She has started her medication and is on the road to recovery. 

This lady is sweet and silly.  She would be the perfect addition to any home!


This mature lady has adjusted beautifully to her new foster home.  Once she learned to trust the humans in the house, Pebbles has been a complete love bug!  She has been giving boxer kisses and "smiling" unless she is sleeping (which she does very soundly!).  When Pebbles wakes up, she is the happiest girl and tries to sneak in some love before the day starts.

Pebbles has seen our rescue vet to examine her leg.  She has no problem jumping on the bed, running in the yard, and going up steps.  The only time it is an issue is when she is standing, and she simply lifts it.  She is on medication to treat a possible infection.  Once this is completed, her leg will be reevaluated.

It is hard to imagine that Pebbles is 9 years old when you see the spring in her step.  She prances around the yard, loves to play with balls, and has typical bursts of boxer energy.  Pebbles took immediately to the other boxers in the house and loves to follow them around to see where the next adventure will be.  She is perfectly housebroken and does well in the crate.  Pebbles walks great on leash and loves to ride in the car. 

When Pebbles arrived, she had no interest in food or treats.  Once she saw her foster siblings enjoying biscuits, though, she decided she wanted them too.  Pebbles just wants to be one of the pack. 

This girl is the perfect lady and is looking for nothing more than to be happy and make a family happy. 

3/25/16 -

Pebbles was surrendered to the shelter because her owner could not afford her.  She is a nine year old boxer with an injury to her rear leg.  Pebbles is being evaluated at our vet, but we have determined she does not have any breaks.  Pebbles did very well on her dog test at the shelter, even with the injury.  She is also reported to be good with children.  If you are able to foster Pebbles, 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.
