Sgt. Pepper loves interacting with people and has been learning how to play appropriately with other dogs.  He goes in the crate willingly and walks well on leash.  Sgt. Pepper responds well to redirections and he wants to please.  He is a very sweet boy who is ready for a forever family of his own. 


Sgt. Pepper is settling into his foster home.  He is the typical boxer in so many ways.  Sgt. Pepper is energetic and goofy, but also enjoys being lazy and snuggling.  Since he is recovering from his neuter and can't use up his energy with normal boxer play, his foster mom has been tiring him out with training.  Sgt. Pepper is very smart and eager to please.  Even when is really excited, he listens and responds immediately to sit, lay down, give paw, stay, wait, come, and leave it.  His foster mom only has to whisper the commands.  His foster mom also says that Sgt. Pepper has the best kisses!!

Sgt. Pepper was found as a stray and is estimated to be around 6 yrs old.  He was described by the shelter as a very friendly boy with quite a bit of energy!  During his behavior evaluation, Sgt. Pepper was very playful.  He was curious and appropriate with another dog.  Sgt. Pepper was just neutered and brought up to date on all vet care.  He will be arriving at his new foster home tomorrow, where he will be living with a female boxer mix.  We will update Sgt. Pepper's page once his foster mom gets to know him better.

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.
