Rocco has arrived at his new foster home and is settling in well.  Rocco is doing great with his foster sister, a female English bulldog.  He would do best in a home with at least one other dog.  Rocco is catching on quickly to basic training.  We will update his page once his foster family learns more about him.

3/31/16 -

Rocco and Chester were brought into the shelter by somebody who witnessed their owners shoving them out of their truck.  They are estimated to be around 8 months of age.  Rocco is the more outgoing of the two boys and is very happy-go-lucky.  They were both tested in play group with several other dogs at the shelter and did great!  Both boys will be neutered soon and transported to rescue.  We would love to find a foster home for them together, but will also consider separating them into separate foster or forever homes that have another resident dog.

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.
