Apache is doing wonderful in his foster home.  He has made a lot of improvements with his manners and obedience.  Apache has also gained a lot of weight and looks wonderful now!  He loves to soak up the sun on the back deck. 

Apache enjoys playing with his foster sister, Luci.  He has the energy of a much younger dog.  Apache uses the dog door and is completely house trained.  He either sleeps with his foster parents or their 12 year old son.

If you are interested in adopting this sweet boy, apply today for Apache! 


Apache has arrived at his new foster home and is settling in well.  He is housebroken and has learned to use the dog door in just a few days.  Apache gets along great with his foster sister, a female senior boxer.  He is very underweight, but is eating well.  Apache does need some work on leash walking and basic commands.  He is great with children and enjoys snuggling.

Apache was found as a stray in January, but was returned by the shelter to his owner.  He is now back at the shelter because the owners can not afford to care for him.  The shelter indicated he was very good with other dogs during his evaluation.  Apache offered play and was very friendly.  This sweet boy will be arriving soon at his new foster home.  We will update his page once he gets settled in.

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.
