Let me introduce Sir! He is a beautiful brindle boy who wants nothing more than your attention. Sir is new to the rescue and is settling in well in his foster home. He is very loving and loves all people. Sir came into the rescue with his sister, Princess, after their owner was sent on a long deployment. Both dogs seem to do well with other dogs, however Sir can be a little on the jealous side when other pets, including Princess, are getting attention. His foster mom has reassured him that there is plenty of love for everyone and he quickly realizes that is not the way of a true gentleman. Sir is a fun, playful boy who likes to share his toys. Since he has been with his foster family, he has shown no signs of food aggression. Sir loves to go for walks and does well on a leash, however a harness would probably be best for this fella. Sir is a very smart boy and already knows sit, stay and down. We are working on shake and the proper way to say "hello", which is not jumping. With consistency and positive reinforcement, he should master this in no time at all. Sir is house and crate trained, although he does not love the crate, he goes in with no problem. He loves to sleep in his foster moms bedroom on his doggy bed at night. Sir likes to snuggle and would do well in a home with another playful fur-sibling and a family that can make sure he gets the exercise he needs so he can keep his great physique. His foster mom thinks he would do great with kids, however because of his energy and size, probably not best suited for small children since he may accidentally knock them over when playing. Sir is looking for a great family with lots of love to give. If you think he may be your Mr. Right, just mention Sir on your application. If you are already approved, then send an email to our adoption coordinator and let her know you would like to meet Sir.

Meet Able! He's a very handsome, sweet and easy going 4 year old boy who loves to be spoiled with attention! He loves to play chase in the backyard with his 2 foster fur brothers. They all get along great inside and even share their toys and play tug of war with their ropes! Unfortunately for Able he has heartworms and since he had his treatment, he has to stay extremely calm both inside and outside. He has been doing very well since his treatment and loves to cuddle and sleep on the couch with his foster parents! He does well on a leash which makes walking him outside to go to the bathroom very easy. When his foster parents have to leave or when it's time to go to sleep for the night, he does great inside his crate, especially with an encouraging treat to get him inside! He has an awesome appetite and getting him to take his medicine is very easy when it's tucked inside a treat. He needs some work with basic commands and has had a few accidents inside the house, both of which are a work in progress. He should train pretty easy because he loves treats and seems eager to please. When his heartworm treatment is done, it will be much easier to train him because we can reward his good behavior with both treats and lots and lots of encouraging love! This playful boy can't wait to get back to his normal self where he can run around in the backyard and play other with his fur brothers and foster parents! Able has not been left for long periods during the day, so we are unsure how he will do if left longer than 5 hours. If Able sounds like a good fit for your family, please mention him in your application or if you are already approved, just let our adoption coordinator know you would like to me Able!

Birdie is a three year old boxer female that came to ABR from a South Georgia shelter. As her foster, I am a little like my mother-in law describing her grandson: I have yet to find fault with this great dog! She is well mannered and friendly. Birdie enjoys human companionship and being close to you. She is happy sitting near you, and loves to stand nearby and get tummy rubs from the tops of your feet. She is crate-trained and housebroken, knows the command "Sit," walks well on a leash, and does not appear to chew furniture or other human artifacts some dogs find interesting. She has not displayed food or any other pattern of aggressiveness.

Birdie gets along with people and other dogs. She loves companionship and play, but does well when left alone. She is playful and would be great with adults and small children. Her gentle disposition gives way to unabashed Boxer joy when playing with other dogs.

When she first came to us, we recognized that Birdie was a diamond in the rough. Birdie has had a litter of puppies, so her previously girlish figure is just a memory. She had some skin issues that might require some ongoing baths. She tolerates those well, accepting the indignity of the process as the price she pays for all the attention. Birdie is a great dog who will fill a person or family's home with joy and love.

Do you remember the Happy song..."Because I'm happy..."? My foster mom says that song is my anthem since I am ALWAYS happy! Here are the top 10 things to know about me:

  1. I am my mom's first foster that has known to play fetch! I love chasing after tennis balls and know how to return them! I also love playing "keep away."
  2. I have a lot of energy, as to be expected, as I am only 2! Due to my energy level, I would probably do best in a house with children older than 8, as I might knock little ones down accidentally. I do calm down very well and respond right away when asked to lay down or go lay down.
  3. I LOVE TOYS!!!! Within 10 minutes of meeting my foster mom and seeing my foster home, I had emptied BOTH of the dog toy bins! I love tossing them up in the air and catching them
  4. I get along well with other dogs, but sometimes smaller dogs can be intimidated by my energy and size. I would do best in a home with dogs close to my size or bigger.
  5. I am potty trained and crate trained
  6. I walk well on a leash with my easy walk harness and doggie backpack :) Thanks to the doggie backpack I do not pull on my leash one bit
  7. I LOVE humans and crave any attention/petting I can get!
  8. I listen SUPER well and respond amazing to commands! I know how to sit, off, come, lay down, no/leave it, and stay.
  9. I am a GREAT car rider and love car rides to new places/adventures!
  10. I love to SNUGGLE and be near my human as MUCH as possible!

I will be available soon and can't wait to find my forever home! Happiness starts with a wet nose and ends with a tail :)

Hi I'm Sheba and I am a little petite thing, some would call me a "Pocket Boxer". I am a little shy/nervous around new surroundings, but seem to be coming out of my shell more every day. I love kids and get really excited when I see them...you know, the whole kidney bean dance, wiggle butt....yeah, that's me! I am very gentle although I may jump up a little at first but because I am so small and light, I don't knock them over. I am currently in a foster home with a 6 year old little girl and 2 other boxers. I haven't met my foster fur-siblings yet, my foster mom wants to give me time and make sure I am comfortable....plus she says they can be a little "cray-cray"...whatever that means. I have seen them playing outside through the window and they do look very interesting... I like cats and love cuddling with them, so a home with cats would be great or my foster mom thinks I would be ok as an only dog too.

My life before ABR consisted of living mostly outdoors and on the streets, I think that is why I am so uncomfortable in confined spaces. I do not do well in the crate and cannot be crated, but I am great to be left out. I do not bother anything and I am house trained. I do like to collect my peoples belongings and bring them to my "nest", my foster mom thinks this is really cute! I also love a good couch to lay on...so I hope you don't mind. Although I may act shy around people initially, I do love their company so I would probably do best with a family that can spend a lot of time with me (minimal time alone). I have not shown any food aggression or guarding, my foster mom pets me while I eat and also can put her hands in my bowl and I don't mind. I don't require a lot of exercise, I'm more of the type of girl that would rather hang around the house and go out back with you....I'm not too sure of that leash thing anyways, but maybe one day I'll like going for walks and to the park. My foster family thinks in time I will become more trusting and will not be scared of new experiences. With a little bit of work and a lot of love, I am sure I will become a confident girl in no time! I am currently finishing up my final weeks of heartworm treatment and will be ready for my fairy tale ending.....If you are looking for a BIG gift in a small package, then mention Sheba on your application. If you are already approved, then just let our adoption coordinator know you would like to meet me.

Amos has such a big heart. He's easy going, relaxed and loves to cuddle. So far, he's great with his human foster siblings (8, 6 and 3) and his senior female canine friend. He loves to play! Although, he's very interested in cats he may not do well with them. He knows how to sit but really needs work on his basic commands and crate training, which his foster family is working on. He doesn't like to be alone, especially in his crate, but he's getting much better at this as he does have heartworms and needs strict rest. He does great on a leash and is potty trained. As soon as he's clear of heartworms he'll be ready for a family of his own.

George is a calm old guy. He mostly wants a warm soft spot to lounge and somone to love him. George would do best with other older, calm animals. He isn't great with cats, when he sees one he gets a spark of his boxer energy back and gives them a chase. George needs someone that can be home with him most of the time – he has an old man's bladder and can't hold it for too long. He may do well with a dog door so he can go in and out as he pleases. George seems to do great with all people – although he loves to bark at newcomers. George deserves a forever home to live out his golden years.

Meet Trey, a fun loving, energetic and playful guy! He loves to go on walks and gets so excited when he sees the leash. Trey knows his basic commands; sit, stay and down and we're pretty sure he could do more with some tasty treats since he catches on fast. Trey loves his toys and loves to chew so heavy duty toys are what's best for him! So far, Trey shows no interest in the two cats in his foster home he has lived with the last couple of months. He has also done great with his older foster fur-sister in the home. Because Trey was recently neutered, he would do best in a home without another male dog and would be perfectly fine as the only dog who could be spoiled rotten! He does great with kids of all sizes, however a home with older kids (10 and up) would probably be best. Trey loves to cuddle and loves his treats, but when time comes that he wants to have some alone time, small kids may not understand personal space and could be too much for him. Trey would do great in a home that has experience with boxers or a dog savvy owner. He doesn't need much exercise and he actually cannot have too much activity i.e. long runs. You see, Trey was born with a heart murmur but it's nothing a little medication can't control, which he takes daily. He will need to make sure he goes in for his annual wellness checks to be monitored He is house and crate trained and loves snuggling in his favorite blanket. Once you meet this boy you will fall in love with his happy go lucky attitude! He is a big sweetheart ready for love! Could you be the happy ending to Trey's story?

Django is estimated to be around 4-6 years old, and is great with with kids. He likes being outside lounging in the sun or loafing on the couch. He also does well with dogs his own size, and will actually do best in a home with another medium to large sized dog. Smaller dogs and cats seem to trigger his prey drive, so unfortunately no small friends are recommended. Django is a smart boy and is learning commands very quickly. He sits patiently at the door on leash and waits to be released, and sits like a gentleman before being fed. If you think Django would be a good fit for you, please let us know!

Bender is your one of a kind, true example of the boxer breed. He is a beautiful, smart, and loving companion. He loves to be by your side, and is very loyal to his people. His foster family says he is a sweet gentle boy who loves children of all ages and has never met a stranger, he loves attention. Bender is well mannered and listens to commands well. He loves playing fetch, keep away and tug of war! He does not show any food/toy aggression and loves getting new toys and loves his treats; he takes them very gently, even with kids. Have we told you how much he loves kids and how great he is with them?!

Bender is house and crate trained, but does have some separation anxiety that will need some work in his new home. He is not destructive in the home, but does have a tenancy to get into things (counter surf) if it's left out. He does not like being in the crate and can be a little escape artist. He would need a dog savvy family that can work with him and re-train him that the crate is a good, safe place. His foster family believes once he feels confident in his new home, this will go away in time. He can be left out with free roam, however his foster family said he will get into food, so everything must be put away on counter tops.

Right now, while Bender is gaining his confidence he would do best with a stay at home/work from home Mom or Dad. He would need a family that is committed to working/training with him. Bender will need work on dog socialization as he does not know how to greet/play with other dogs yet. He tends to come on too strong which can intimidate another dog into fight or flight mode. He does well with his senior fur sister, but will need work with meeting new friends outside the home. For now, his foster family thinks he will be fine as an only dog or with a well mannered, playful fur sibling and a family who will work on a slow introduction to set him up for success! Bender does have a strong prey for small dogs so that probably means no cats too. He has also jumped the fence at his foster home so he will need a home with a tall (6+ ft) fence so he can romp around in. Bender does love going on walks but will need work when he passes other dogs, since he wants to try and play with everyone, dog parks are not ideal for this silly boy. He would love going on hikes and would make a great running partner once he learns to focus on his human and not get distracted.

His foster family cannot say enough great things about Bender and how awesome he is! He loves to sleep right by his foster Dad and cannot get enough attention from his foster skin siblings, he is a total love bug! He will be a loyal companion to the right family who will give him the love, attention and positive training he needs to help him be the perfect family member we know he can be. Benders only wish this Christmas is to have a forever home soon, will it be yours? If you are looking for the perfect, loyal companion, look no further. If you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator know you want to meet Bender or mention him on your application.

Bruce LeeRoy is a low energy, happy, non reactive boy. The best description is Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh, content to watch his surroundings. Not even giving a reaction when a small dog growled at him and has gotten along with all dogs he has met. Slowly this boy is coming out of his shell each day with positive encouragement. There are no accident or incident when left out in the house with a workday period of time and will go in a kennel with persuasion. Leash training outside is not the best, he does not pull, but does not understand walking beside you. Inside a slip leash is used with great success to move him to the desired area. He does not seem to know the basics, even sit and come is a working progress. More of a challenge because he is not food motivated. He is showing an interest in toys and has the best head tilt for toys that squeak. Mention Bruce LeeRoy on your application if he sounds like a fit.

Hi! My name is Roxie. I am what is called a “Pocket Boxer” because of my size. When I was rescued from the shelter I was only 36 lbs. and had pneumonia and kennel cough. Now thanks to my temporary foster I have gained a few pounds in just a short time and my cough is almost gone. I am a very loving and sensitive girl who would love a family especially with kids. Because of my cough I have not been able to be around other furry friends, but I’m sure I could get along with others. I am a little shy and reserved. I guess this is because I did not have a lot of love in my past. My foster tells me I’m doing pretty good on my crate training and house training. I only had a few mistakes and I bark a little when initially left alone but calm done in a few minutes. I still have to get my heart worm test, rabies shot and be spayed, so I will not be available until February but I would love to meet you if you are approved. Please tell the adoption coordinator that you are interested in Roxie.

Meet Sadie (affectionately known as Sadie Lou McNubbins). This adorable girl has only been in her foster home for a week, but so far she has been the perfect house guest. She is house-trained and hasn’t demonstrated any destructive behavior. She is not a huge fan of her crate, but crating her may not be necessary. She has been on her best behavior every time she has been given free rein of the house. Sadie is a playful pup with a gentle nature. In the house she is content with snuggles and belly rubs, but let her outside and she’ll run wild. She would probably do best in a home with a fenced in yard. Sadie is recovering from kennel cough so she has not been tested with other animals, but she hasn’t met a human she doesn’t like. Sadie will be starting heartworm treatment this month, but she will be ready to meet her forever family in the near future. If Sadie sounds like the perfect fit for your family, please let the adoption coordinator know that you would love to meet her or mention Sadie on your application.

Meet Rocket. Rocket is what most refer to as a pocket Boxer…He’s a little guy. He makes up for his size in personality though.

He is very mild mannered and has never met a person he didn’t like. He loves snuggling with his people, snoozing in the sun, and getting rubs from whomever is handing them out.

He is house trained and has not had a single accident in the house. He is not food or toy aggressive. He still needs to put on a little weight, but he will be on the smaller side for a boxer even after he gains a little. He’s still an energetic guy and runs around in the back yard like a crazy dog when he gets excited.

He has not done very well with our three dogs and may need to be an only dog. The last couple of interactions we had were better than previous ones, so with a slow introduction, it may be possible to have him in a house with other dogs. We do not know how he is with cats.

Rocket is a very sweet boy. He’s not excitable and normally has a very calm demeanor. He does get excited when you get home and his little butt wiggles all over the place. He’ll make someone who is looking for a dog that’s beyond the puppy phase a very good companion.

Rex is a 6 year old, sweet, happy boy who loves his people! He will make a loyal companion for some lucky, dog savvy person. Rex gets along with some dogs, and loves to play with his companion in his foster home. His play can be rambunctious, therefore a home without young children is recommended. Rex is housetrained, crate trained, and walks nicely on a short leash. He knows ’sit’, ’watch me’, ’check in’ (to return to his foster mom), ’turn around’, ’heel’, ’let’s go’, ’this way’ and ’leave it’. He loves toys, tug of war, being silly, soccer balls, snuggling, and the couch! Rex is a strong, active boy who likes to run, but also has nice house manners in his foster home. He would be fine as an only dog or with just the right companion dog. A fenced yard is a must for this active boy. Rex is up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and neutered. He has been diagnosed with a low grade heart murmur, which has been evaluated, and does not require medication or special treatment.

Hi! My name is Sable but my foster mom calls me Lovey because I am super lovey. I’m beautiful, playful and really enjoy being loved on. I don’t need much; my favorite things are treats, affection, napping on the sofa, going in the backyard, and playing with my toys. I’m crate trained and house broken and perfect in the house. I’m 10 years old as of March 19th but you’d never guess it. I get around well but do have some hip and knee problems that I take supplements and pain killers for, the vet says that’s the best thing. Otherwise, I’m a super-healthy girl!

Before coming to ABR, I spent most of my life locked up in an outdoor pen without much love or contact with people. I really deserve this second chance at life and am adapting well. Because of the way I lived most of life, I’m still learning to trust people and am protective of my foster mom. I need to be introduced to new people and can easily be won over with treats and affection and then I’m all wags and boxer wiggles. I’d do best with a fenced yard to play and do my business instead of walks where I run into other dogs and strangers. I don’t care much for other dogs and should be an only dog. I haven’t been around cats so, I’m not sure if I like them. I don’t like change and can get stressed out so my new home needs to be calm, routine and kid-free.

I’m sweet and have become a happy girl since coming to ABR. I know I’m not for everyone, but I deserve love and affection in my golden years and have a lot to give. Can I be your Lovey?
