BOXERS IN NEED!
The following boxers need you. They are currently in local shelters or in homes that can no longer care for them for whatever reason. LBR has been asked to help them, but we cannot take them into our program because our foster homes are full. LBR provides all food, vetting a crate, and basic essentials like leash and collar, for each foster boxer - please help us help them!

Please note that in most cases, LBR has no other information about these boxers other than what's listed here.


There are also boxers in shelters that we do not have pictures of. We need all the help we can get at this point. If you are interested in fostering for us, please fill out our foster application by clicking here.

Kyle is a 3 to 4 year old unaltered medium sized white male with natural ears and docked tail. This boy was very scared, but still gave me nub wags. When I sat down on the floor, he came and wrapped his arms around me in a hug, as if begging me to get him out of there. (I almost cried). He was very focused on the waiting room, which is visible from the meeting room through a glass wall. He was not jumpy, so might be ok with older children. He is a pretty good sized dog though, so might not be as good with tiny ones due to his size. When we walked down the row of barking dogs, he did not react. He was kenneled with his son and when I got there, he pushed his son out of the way with a loud snarl - the other dog was even more terrified and cowered on the floor. Their owner chose to leave them there and not get them. They both were jumping on the bars of the kennel together. I think he's fine with other dogs. Most of his reactions were fear-related. He did not react to any commands and pulled on the leash, but that was because he was focused on getting out of there. There were no messes in his kennel and the shelter worker said it was near their time to go outside. We went into the cat room and he went very, very still, though his nub wagged. He did not bark or growl or react, other than very focused attention. No lumps or bumps, mildly dirty ears, clean teeth. A few scratches from running as a stray. I made several attempts to determine if he was deaf since he is white. He did react when I stomped my foot on the floor, so I feel he can hear. He is very scared and wants us to save him. He's got a few fleas, but overall appeared very healthy for a stray dog.

Miley is an 8 year old unaltered 50 pound flashy fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She was surrendered to a shelter by her owners because they could no longer afford her and her brother BIN 14573. She is absolutely terrified and rescue is her only chance. She is already scheduled for euthanasia because she was too scared to even let the shelter staff vaccinate her.

Eval: Miley is an 8 year old unaltered medium sized flashy fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Miley was initially very scared; the shelter was quite noisy today and she was shaking like a leaf in the hallway. Shelter staff said she was so frightened that they were unsure if she might be aggressive. We took her into the evaluation room where it was a bit quieter. I just talked softly to Miley and within a few minutes she came to me and leaned in. She quit shaking and repeatedly kept coming in for petting. After five minutes she was climbing up on my lap, taking treats and giving kisses. She was never jumpy or aggressive in the least. Obviously she is very frightened in the shelter environment, but once away from the action, she is definitely a very loving girl. Once she decompresses from the shelter environment, I feel she will do well with children. Other dogs passed us in the hallway, and she did not seem interested at all. She just stood there shaking. She saw two other dogs through the meet & greet windows and just observed them with no reaction. Miss Miley showed me that she knew both sit and shake! She also stayed close while on the leash with no pulling. I am guessing she likely knows other commands too. Cat test not available. Miley has a beautiful coat with unique markings. She is shedding a bit more than normal, but has no scars. She has likely been a breed dog for many years. Heart worm status is unknown. She has one small soft dark lump on the inside of one back leg that needs to be evaluated. Miley and the sealed brindle boy were owner surrendered together. He has a foster home and I am hopeful someone will foster this beautiful girl and give her a home that she can enjoy free from being a breed dog and get the attention she is so wanting. She has a very gentle nature and will make someone a very devoted pet. Miley is ready to be spoiled and she will greatly reward you with soft kisses and loving touches

Other Info: ***CRITICALLY URGENT DUE TO URI***

***update 9/4: We first evaled Ginger as an owner surrender. She is now at a local shelter so we have a 2nd eval.*** Ginger is a 4 year old spayed fawn female boxer with natural ears and docked tail. Her owners surrendered her because she had become snippy with a smaller dog in the home over food. Also, her family will be traveling a lot and felt it was not fair to keep boarding her. She was free to roam the house and stayed inside and outside. She was good with the family and was very friendly with our volunteer. She was raised with children. Most of the time she did get along with the smaller dog in the home, but sometimes there was a show of aggression. She is house and crate trained and has stayed in a crate up to 6 hours. She does fairly well with baths and grooming and is good with nail trims. She got her exercise in the backyard. They used to walk her on a leash, but stopped when she showed some leash aggression. She has typical boxer style energy. She will bring toys and play fetch. She let our volunteer take toys from her mouth and did not growl. She is not possessive of her toys. She was hard to photograph because she would not stay still. She acted like she was so happy to get attention. She is fed dry food. Her family can take food away from her without problems. She knew “sit” but was too wiggly to do much more. Her family said she is good on a leash while walking unless she sees another dog or strangers. She then barks and acts aggressive and protective of her people. Our volunteer really felt that Ginger was not acting aggressive in a mean manner, but because she was attacked by other dogs and now has trust issues. Owner stated that none of the above behaviors did not start until neighbors' German shepherds started jumping the fence and running loose in the alley between homes and would attack Ginger through the fence. Since then, she has times she acts aggressive towards the small dog in the home, but has never actually harmed the dog. She did not show any negative behavior when our volunteer entered the house at all. Owners use verbal discipline. Owners say she is current on her vaccinations and is on heartworm prevention. Ginger is a beautiful classic fawn girl. Her coat is on the darker side, with a good shine to it. She was wiggly and loving.

Ginger is very scared in the shelter environment and needs some reassurance that everything is ok. She can be a little timid at first then comes around and will lean on you for some pets and loves. She did not jump on anyone or make an attempt to do so. She would be good with children based on her small size She showed no interest in the other dogs in the shelter. Walked past their cages in a hurry to get outside. She would not sit or respond to any other commands but I believe it was due to her being afraid and unsure of what was going on. She did pull on the leash when we first went outside, but on the way back in she walked very well and listened much better. She does appear to be housetrained. First thing she did when we got outside was pee and poop twice. She had no messes in her kennel. Unable to cat test. Ginger has no bumps or lumps. She is HW negative and current on shots according to shelter records. She did pass some bright red blood in her second stool but this could be due to the fact that she held it for awhile or the stress of the environment. Ginger is a very sweet girl. She was an owner surrender due to some food aggression with the small poodle in the home. The owner was concerned that this might progress into something more and has small children in the home. This is what was told to the shelter when she was surrendered. She was nothing but sweet when I was there. Showed no leash aggression with the other dogs in the kennels. She is a small petite girl, weighing in around 42lbs. She is starting to show small ribs and backbone and could probably stand to gain about 10lbs. She is spayed and heartworm negative.

Bella is a 3 year old 48 pound flashy fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. This beautiful sweet flashy brindle girl is curious, but slightly timid. She did not jump up at all. Bella was an owner surrender. No reason was given. She kept returning to lean on me for reassurance and love. She pawed a little at the ball I provided, but didn't play much. She was interested in the squeaky toy I had, but would not play with it. She pottied right away when we got out to the yard, so I believe she is house trained. Her kennel was clean when we took her out. She was more interested in the people near her than anything else. This pretty girl just wants to be loved. I think she would do well with most any age since she did not jump up and was quite timid and gentle in her movements. She viewed other dogs from the play yard and seemed curious, but there was no aggression, barking, or posturing toward the other dogs. When they barked, it seemed to make her a little nervous. I think she will do fine with other dogs. She demonstrated sit, but would did not demonstrate other commands. She walked well on the leash with minimal pulling. Cat test was not available. She has a small pecan sized tumor on her front left elbow. She had no other lumps or bumps. Her hair and skin looks very good. She is slightly thin. Nails appear trimmed. I think this sweet gentle girl should do well in any environment. She so wants to be loved.

Other Info: Harley is a medium sized unaltered fawn female with natural ears and docked tail. She is not deaf. Very sweet, affectionate, not timid. She would be good with kids of any age, she was not jumpy at all . She does fine with other dogs, she is not separated at all. She is in with her six puppies and has had no issues with other dogs. She knows sit. She walked fine on a leash. No cat test performed. She has some hair missing on her back, she has been laying on the concrete with the puppies and they are like pressure sores on her vertebrae due to her being extremely skinny and laying on the concrete. Her puppies were weaned last week, so she just needs to dry up and be spayed. With some TLC, she will be a beautiful girl.

Other Info: ***Update 9/16: Kasey is going to the shelter Friday 9/19*** Kasey's family is moving to Australia in early September and cannot take her with them. This is an almost 8 year old spayed, flashy fawn female who weighs 60 lbs. She is good with kids, not good with other female dogs, cats unknown and has been with a few males which she was fine with. This family has had Kasey since she was 8 weeks old. She is up to date with vaccines and heart worm. Owner has all of her medical records from the time she was a baby. She stays outside in a chain link run most of the day and sleeps in the house in a crate at night. She was very well behaved, knows how to sit and walk on a leash. She will not get on furniture unless invited. She jumped on me at first but settled down soon. She is a beautiful dog with a squishy black face. No lumps or bumps except one small skin tag on right flank. Gorgeous coat and trimmed nails. Does not get much exercise and was still very laid back. With a backyard to run in she would be pretty low energy I would think. Ears are natural and very clean. Tail docked. I loved this dog immediately. I wish that I could take her home with me! The family will take her to you with her toys and bedding but not her crate.

Other Info: ***Update 9/16: Needs to be placed in the next week. Owner is contacting shelter and looking for an alternative placement as they need a place to go*** Stuka is a 10 year old flashy fawn (but silver now) average sized 55 to 60 lb spayed female with natural ears and docked tail. Her owner is moving to Washington and does not feel that she can find a house to rent up there that will allow boxers. Must be rehomed by October 1. When home boxers are allowed free roam of house. When she leaves they are crated. Before she was packing the dogs were allowed free roam of the house if she was gone for just a few hours but since she has been packing the dogs have started to chew on the boxes if left out. She is let in and out via the back door to go out. They are crated over night and only a few hours here and there during the day. Adults they are great with but very jumpy. Even with strangers they barked but attempted to lick us to death :) Don't think they would be good with kids unless older as they do jump. Owner stated the neighbors small dog got into their yard one day about 6 months to a year ago and the boxers couldn't get into the house quick enough even with the dog barking and coming at them. House and crate trained, wire crate, overnight and during day 3-4 hours at a time. Does well for bathing, grooming and nail clipping. When older son was living at home they were walked on leashes quite regularly. Now that he has grown and moved away dogs play together in yard and run around although Stuka is getting a little slower at 10 1/2. She is still very energetic. Did not act like a 10 1/2 year old when she was playing. Tired out quicker than her fur brother Gunther. Took treats very nicely. Stuka was trained at Mans Best Friend when she was younger. She would sit but was too excited to do much else. We did not take out. She is walked with a choke chain. No toys were present. Very loveable and starved for affection. UTD on vaccinations and HWP. Stuka is definitely a silver boxer at 10 1/2 but I feel she could give someone a few good years and would be very appreciative of affection. Loves to give lots of kisses. Could benefit fr om a joint supplement. Nothing appeared to bother her. Owner did not state that things bothered her. Loves car rides. Stuka has had her right rear toe removed due to a tumor. She has multiple small tumors on her body. Owner states they have been all looked at by Dr Kendrick at Country Club Animal Hospital and it is not necessary to remove them as they appear to be fatty tumors. Stuka does have some arthritis issues in her rear hips.

Owner is contacting shelter and looking for an alternative placement as they need a place to go*** Gunther is a 6.5 year old neutered fawn average sized male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being rehomed because his owner is moving to Washington and does not feel that she can find a home to rent that will allow her to keep the dogs. Gunther is kept in his crate if owner is not home even for a few hours and crated overnight. During the day it is for 3-4 hours at a time. He was allowed to have free roam of house with Stuka until she started packing and dogs started chewing on boxes. Gunther and his fur sister Stuka are let in and out of the back door. Gunther and Stuka barked when we knocked but were all wiggles and kisses when we came in the door. They are friendly with everyone. Owner has never had them around kids. A neighbors dog did get into the back yard and Gunther and Stuka could not get back inside quick enough with the little dog barking at them. Owner does have a cat and they are ok with her. Gunther can play a little rough and owner thinks he could be allergic to the cat so keeps them separated. He is house and crate trained, can be left in crate overnight and then 3-4 hours at a time during the day Good for bathing, grooming and nail trims Good for nail trims. When owners son lived at home Gunther was walked frequently on leash with choke chain. Now that son has grown and moved away only exercise is playing with fur sister Stuka. Did not really see them play together. Energy level is good, loved attention and couldn't get enough. Was pretty respectful. No toys available to test possessiveness. He eats Natures Recipe Salmon and Sweet Potato dry kibble. Was sent to Mans Best Friend when younger. He would sit on command but was too excited to do anything else. Not known how his leash walking behavior is. Verbal correction used for discipline. Not known how he would react if a rawhide or food bowl was taken away, but he took treats very nicely and gentle. Very jumpy, so maybe not good for smaller children but older children would be ok. Very starved for affection. He is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention as of August 2014. Gunther is very sweet. Does have some possible allergies that need to be addressed. He would be a great addition to any home None that owner is aware of. Does have some allergy issues. She feels possibly grass allergy and he does receive steroid injections. Owner has recently changed food to Natures Recipe Salmon and Sweet potato to see if that helps.

Other Info: ***Beckham's owner is moving, he must be rehomed by mid-October*** Beckham is a 10 year old neutered average sized, but emaciated, brindle male with cropped ears and a docked tail. His owner lives in a very small apartment (likely less than 600 sq.ft.) which is cluttered with applicances and furniture from down-sizing. He works 12 - 13 hour days and Beckham is left alone to roam freely. His owner is very upset about having to give up his boy. He's MOVING IN MID-OCTOBER back to his mother's place, and has to find a new home for Beckham before then. Beckham roams freely in the apartment. He hasn't been crated since he was young. He's more mature, so crating is likely not necessary. Beckham is a complete LOVEBUG!!! He adores people, especially women ;-), as well as dogs, cats, children, and strangers.... he's a lover, and the SWEETEST boxer I have ever met, honestly. Beckham greeted me at the door... there was no barking, just lots of wiggles. He hung out next to me and let me do lots of petting and loving on him. He is house trained, but his dad works really long hours whereby he's had some accidents from trying to 'hold-it'; a bonus though, Beckham knows how to ring a bell when he needs to go potty. When Beckham was younger, he was crated. He's great with bathing and grooming, and receives baths inside the tub. His owner said he gives oatmeal based baths to Beckham. I felt that this boy was shedding excessively.. I'm not sure if it's related to nutrition, or if it's something else. Beckham's dad said that he LOVES water though, and the hose... and also likes to swim! He's great with nail trims and his dad said he uses the dremel on his boy. I thought some of Beckham's nails appeared too long and seemed to curl. His owner doesn't have much time for Beckham, but his boxer boy LOVES to walk across the apartment parking lot to a grassy area to PLAY. He didn't even have a leash on; he was incredibly obedient and easy to guide. This boy only wants to please! He used to go on 6-mile runs with his owner... and currently, loves to play fetch and is a great retriever! " Beckham still likes to play, and has some puppy in him ;-) He can become excited... but, can also chill with other dogs. He's submissive and sweet. No possessiveness, Beckham shares this toys! He eats Beneful, dry kibble. This handsome guy knows 'sit', 'down', 'come' and 'stay'... his dad demonstrated several commands. Beckham is GREAT with leash walking... and doesn't even need a leash!!! Verbal correction and snapping his fingers for discipline. Beckham is curious about others' food items, but isn't possessive himself. He listens when corrected, and doesn't instigate trouble with highly valued food items. This precious, precious, precious boy has only good things to offer to a new home. He's sweet, smart, obedient, fun, happy, good-looking and SWEET... oh yeah, and did I say sweet? Last vaccinations and heart worm prevention was in 2011, he needs to be heart worm tested, along with other types of worms. I'm praying that a loving foster home is able to step up for this fabulous boy. He's a senior who needs a new home. His adult dad had his mom make the call to us, because he's upset in having to let go of Beckham. I desperately want a vet to check him out based on how thin he is... and then, for this guy to experience heaven in the companionship of the fur & skin kind... along with pets and hugs, snuggles and ear rubs. Beckham DESERVES help. PLEASE, please consider giving him a chance. He's a loving boy that needs some attention. Nothing seems to faze Beckham. He jumps right into the car...he's not a barker, he was good at the vet (but now, it's been several yrs since a visit).. he's good with lighting and thunderstorms. Beckham is incredibly skinny, even though his dad feeds him 4 cups of kibble per day. Owner said that Beckham has been this thin since his neuter 3 years ago, and that he eats all the time. Beckham had a mast cell tumor removed from a back leg on his knee in 2011 when he went in for his neuter. Other than Beckham being so thin, I didn't see any lumps or other concerns. His energy level is really good.

Other Info: Who is 2.5 year old unaltered fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He was born 1/1/2012. His owners are surrendering him due to financial reasons. They saved Who and Bea (BIN 14465 nka LBR Bea Lacy) from going to a shelter but already have 2 dogs and cats of their own. They cannot afford them all. Who is not house trained. They said when he gets excited he urinates so has to be crated or in the backyard. They said when he met us he would probably urinate out of excitement, but he did not. So I'm not really sure what to make of this. I had my son with me and Who was excellent. He is a big dog and did jump up some, but he knows sit and only jumped in the beginning. He was very friendly with all of us. Did not see him around new animals, but he lives with other dogs and cats and loves them all. not house trained. He is crate trained, in a wire crate, unsure how long he can go. He loves baths. They said he does not like pools but is great with the hose. They have not trimmed nails He plays in the backyard with other dogs. Who LOVES tug of war!!! I would not consider him high energy though. He would get excited and jump, but he would calm down fairly easily. Sweet, sweet boy. Not possessive with toys. Eats Ol Roy Meaty Chunks and Gravy. Owners believe the son did some training with him. I was able to get him to sit and shake. He would need some work on this. He kept grabbing the leash in his mouth like he wanted to walk himself. It was actually pretty cute, and he really wasn't pulling, just jumping to get the leash. Verbal correction and crate are used for discipline. No food or toy aggression. The urinating in the house is an issue. Because they do keep him in the crate, I'm not sure how much they have worked on this. Not up to date on vaccinations or heart worm prevention. Who was very, very sweet. He is young and gorgeous and looks incredibly healthy. He does not like weed wackers. That was the only thing they could come up with. Sleeps through storms no problem. The owners said they wonder if there is some sort of brain damage. Who stopped breathing after he was born and had to be revived. They described it this way: We teach him things but then it's like he doesn't remember. I did think he seemed to be in his own little world when we met him, but we were outside and he kept grabbing his leash in his mouth like he wanted to walk himself. I questioned at one point if he could hear because he was so uninterested in us and what we were doing, but I called him a few times and he did respond.

Other Info: Hannah is a 3 year old 54 lb spayed white female with natural ears and docked tail. Her family didn't realize she would be so time consuming and they have a small house. They do not feel they can give her the time and affection she needs. Hannah is free to roam the house but is kept in the utility room when owners are away. She has not been crated and possibly would not like it, but training would be simple with her gentle nature. Wonderful with children and strangers. Hannah greeted me well, did NOT jump and was eager to show me how she could run and play in the yard. She was a show off. Very sweet. Owner lifts Hannah into the tub with no issues and does very well with baths. Owner had a very nice large backyard that Hannah runs around in. She is not taken out for walks or removed from the property area. When asked what her reaction would be towards other outside strangers walking with their own animals, owner stated she would be fine. Never has shown any type of aggression. Hannah plays extremely well with a very small Terrier that resides with her. Hannah plays on cue. Loves to run, but also knows when it's time to settle down. Very gentle and calm personality. Does not enjoy toys. No interest at all. Hanna had some sort of stomach upset. Owner put her on Gastro Intestinal food. No longer needed, but owner never changed back to plain regular. Hannah has been fine ever since. No special training classes. Hannah sat on command, but only after I used treats. No other commands obeyed, but could be trained easily. Pulls on leash. Verbal corrections only, but she doesn't do anything worthy of much correction. Shares her food well with her small companion. Never has shown a possessive character. No behavior issues. Does not chew, and is always relaxed while owners are gone. Hannah would prefer a more quiet environment, as she is normally very gentle and calm. Gives licks and kisses. Needs her yearly vaccinations. Last HWP given Oct 2013. Good with storms. Hannah might startle from a loud noise but nothing out of the norm. Good in car. Welcomes everyone. No illnesses or allergies. Hannah is fed well, skin looks good and healthy. No lumps or any elbow callouses. I noticed bleeding from her back left paw pad. Owner states that when she runs she twists as she plays and her paw scrapes the concrete with excitement. Abrasion always heals and only occurs on that one paw. There were no signs of a torn nail or foreign object after further inspection. Liquid Band-Aid is used by the owner. This happens rarely.

Other Info: Luca is a 10 year old unaltered 77 pound flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. His owner wants to surrender him because they have no more time for him due to small children in the home. Luca roams free in the house when the family is home. He's in the laundry room with a baby gate while the family is away. He's a very relaxed guy, and chills, basically. He's great with people, and children. Luca has a sweet and gentle personality. He's independent, in that he doesn't demand attention, but he loves and appreciates the time he gets with his people. He's a sweat heart! House and crated trained. He does well when his nails are clipped at PetSmart; and he's good with being bathed in the bathtub with the shower head. He's good with harness walking, but it's not on a regular basis. He gets to go outside and play in the backyard. Luca is laid back and very easy going. He has energy though, and remains curious in nature, but he's very low-key. His physique looks like an athlete, but his personality is that of a gentleman. He's a very good looking boy, and his photos don't do him justice. Anyone who decides to take him in, will fall instantly in love, I'm certain. He comes from a good place, and he's been loved for years. His family just wants more for him than they are able to provide with their additional obligations. And Luca deserves it :-) He's not into toys really. He eats Purina One (1) Senior Blend; chicken or lamb (he's sensitive to beef, and will throw it up) Luca attended a PetSmart puppy training course when he was younger. The command that he knows is 'sit'. Otherwise, nothing specific, but Luca listens when he's talked to, and follows directions easily. Luca is very sensitive, and only receives gentle verbal corrections, if ever any are necessary. He does like to be a part of the action, along with the family, but is very obedient and submissive. He is not at all reactive to anything related to his food bowl, or a treat, or a toy. He's very chill in his demeanor. Children under the age of 5 would not be advisable in Luca's environment, only because he gets a little excited and is a big guy. He could possibly knock over a younger child by accident. But seriously, he's a GREAT guy! He needs to be brought up to date on vetting. The family didn't want to put Luca 'under again', so that's why he's not neutered. He's had an allergic reaction to the rabies vaccine, and then was given Benadryl to counteract the effects. He's doesn't receive flea treatments, only Iverhart Max for HWP. Luca is well worth the effort to check out... he's beautiful, sweet, loving, and has this terrific personality... he's independent and curious, and doesn't behave like he knows his true age!!!!! That's my kind of guy ;-) I love his spirit and I think others will fall for him as well. Luca is nervous about loud noises, such as fireworks or thunderstorms, and that's about it. One year ago, Luca was diagnosed with an enlarged prostate, but no surgery was required. He's had recurring ear infections, which are treated with antiseptic washes and medicated drops.

Other Info: Lexi is a 50 pound 3 1/2 year old spayed fawn female with natural ears and docked tail. Lexi's owners want to surrender her due to the recent development of redirected aggression toward their male Boxer. For instance if Lexi is already barking at something outside and the male approaches her then she'll attack him. They have a new born and young child in the house and Lindsey is afraid Lexi will harm one of the kids when she's doing this. She's crated up to 8 to 10 hours when the family is away and inside/outside when they're home. When they're home sometimes both dogs are kept in the backyard. She does well with the adults and children in the family. She was very hyper, but friendly when I met her. She does jump, but she can be redirected with a toy. She's reported to be dog friendly. She's not happy to take a bath, but she permits it. Owner has never tried to trim her nails and pays the vet to do it. She used to go on walks before the owner was pregnant. She pulls at the leash, so she hasn't been walked lately. Now it's backyard play with the male. She may be bored. She seems high energy, but about what you'd expect from a Boxer. Owner says her play style is very boxer-y. Jumping, lots of paws. Not with people, some with the male boxer. She's only had home training. She knows sit and down. No aggression with people, some with the male boxer. She has displayed some aggression to ward the male boxer in the home, but only when she's already wound up. She does jump when she meets new people, so she might not be good with small kids. This behavior may be able to be corrected. Up to ate on vaccines and on HWP. She seems like a sweet boxer, very typically boxer-y. She's pretty cute and has a healthy coat. She definitely needs to work off some energy. Of the two Boxers she is the more energetic. Nothing bothers her. She's very even keeled, except for her recent aggression. No health issues that her family is aware of.

Other Info: Buda is a 5 year old 50 to 60 pound unaltered fawn male Boxer with a black mask, natural ears and docked tail. The owner states they want him to be happy in his home, and his larger son is terrorizing him-started as too rough play, then once his ear was injured, the son wouldn't leave him/and the ear alone; they are separated in the house now. He gets along with the other boxers in the house [mate, other son, cats]. He is an inside boxer. Separated by blocked doors to section off the house. Sleeps on the bed and cuddles. They haven't crated since he was young. Buda is fine with family and visitors: he used to come and sniff, then walk away to lay down--very chill dude for a boxer. Is also fine with the owners children, not jumpy. Now, he will need slow intros because he has started being on alert in new environments and looks like he's checking to make sure the son is not around with new noises. He relaxed with me being in the room after 30 minutes, but that was in his home where the incident happened. I'd imagine a change of environment should help once he's past any transition anxiety. House and crate trained, but haven't crated in years Loves the bath. The dogs line up for the bath tub. Allows nail trims; harder on the parents, who are shy with trims; graduated to the grinder which worked well though not often. Exercise: walks 3-4 times a week; side yard to do boxer burns; back yard. Used to go to dog parks also. Buda is pretty chill. you can see his nub start to go when he sees treats or gets attention from the mom. He's not much for toys, but will play with them. Also will play with a chicken jerky treat all day like it's a toy. Energy level sounds typical, but lower key than most boxers. Eats Dog Chow, dry. sometimes will mix in canned wet food and baked chicken if they have it. Training: Self taught: knows sit, stay, follows directions like go out, go upstairs, move over, go in cage [for crate]. Leash: Good; gets excited when sees leash, then prances on leash verbal correction. Discipline: I heard a firm no no issue. If you take something away from him, no growl or bark, just looks at you and may back away to let you have it. Behaviors to be aware of: Gets excited, possible jumpy when sees leash; barks when people come to the door. He is cat friendly. Gets along with cats; has been around cats since 4 mos. old, and the cat can walk all over him; he sleeps right next to the cat on the people's bed. Not up to date on vaccinations or heart worm prevention. Daddy's boy-likes the security of a large male person around. Cuddles, and will put up a paw on your lap then give a gentle hug to mom and gentle small kisses; pretty laid back for a boxer once he's comfortable with you--not in your face and needing constant attention. Polite--definitely an ask permission and wait for you to pass type of boxer described earlier regarding the new anxious behavior post-fight, where he seems on alert more, hangs around the male owner [sounds like a feel safe move] and needs longer intros with people so he can get comfortable.His left ear looks cauliflower and needs medical attention; currently being cleaned and neosporin daily; scratches on his forearms, and one on left shoulder. also noticed a small bump on right mid-back, but that could even be a bug bite it's so small, but it disturbs the hair. No other known medical, but do not know heart worm status.

Other Info: Rufus is a 2.5 year old 58 pound neutered brindle male with natural ears and long tail. His owners want to surrender him because he starting having Grand Mal seizures in March of this year and they don't feel they have the resources to treat his issues. The seizures occur about a month or longer apart. He is kept in a large sized bare crate. He is really great with the family and anyone that comes to their house. He's more protective outside of the house for walks but loves the dog park and does well. By protective, they explained that he is just in a stance and may bark but never aggressive. He has a tiny chihuahua brother as well as a male pit bull and border collie that her brother brought later. He needs to sniff and make sure they are okay - never aggressive but barks at first until he's sure it's okay. She has 4 kids and he loves everyone in the family. He is NOT cat friendly though. He went into predator mode with a bird on the roof of the neighbor and I asked about cats and the owners said an emphatic no on that. He is housetrained. He is crate trained with a wire with pan - they just say go home and he's no problem at all. He doesn't like a bath, so they say they don't say bathe and he doesn't like standing water. They use a shower attachment and he's just fine. He doesn't try to escape. They have nails done with a groomer. He's fine with the groomer. He is an indoor dog, but spending probably a total of 1 hour a day outside in the fenced yard. Their schedules make it hard to do walks and they didn't have a proper leash - just a rope. He's a typical jumpy 2 1/2 year old but he stayed calm most of the time I was there. He was in prey drive over a bird next door for a period of time and I noticed he barks at SOME neighbors. The owners said he was never aggressive however. He's not possessive over toys or food but they said there was one very flavorful bone that he would warn to stay away - again never aggressive. He is fed dry grain free Pedigree, about 1 1/2 cups of food but not much interest in food and a little too slim. No, he has had no formal training - but he knows sit, lay down, paw and appeared to me to be very eager to please. He needs work but I believe very teachable even in the short time I was there. For discipline, they said they just correct him with the mom/dad voice but she did say they had used the rolled up newspaper in the beginning. The brother said he could take anything away from him and she said she could take anything away from him but a bone. He didn't react with actual aggression but would growl or bark with it. The owners encourage him to jump up for a hug. He's very submissive and a total sweetheart to me and was my observation with the family as well. His issue is lack of formal training for a normal 2 year old boy and just needs to learn some basic manners. The last vaccinations were 2013, and I did not get a copy so I'm not sure if they are overdue - have put a request in to her to get a copy of those whether we rescue him or not. Not on HWP - it's been over a year ago that he got one. His last seizure was 1 month ago, and I'm encouraged that this just started this year and feel there may be a trigger in the home or with a bad food. They did say he was drinking a lot. They would not allow me in their home and there was a pretty strong odor at the front door, so I'd love to see this boy go to foster care before this condition is able to take a firm hold. The owners are sweet as can be and she cried multiple times about giving him up. He is spending WAY too much time in the crate I believe because he sleeps in the crate overnight and stays there during the day. They admitted they don't have the resources to properly care for him. The 16 year old son is the closest to him and would not come out because he's not okay with giving him up - very sad but I believe they are making the right decision because of their situation. I touched this boy from head to toe looking for lumps, bumps, checked his gums, picked up and touched his feet and he just kissed me. LOVE this dog!!! He just is a normal young boxer boy that is easily distracted. He's one that needs slower intros with people and dogs even though he's never aggressive and does much better in his home for intros.

Other Info: Fiona is a 3 year old 50 pound spayed fawn female with natural ears and docked tail. Her owners want to surrender her to LBR. They don't have the time to exercise her, so they crate her most of the day. She also doesn't get along with their small dog. The small dog lived in the home first and initiates the fights. She's been drinking out of the pool and she has chronic diarrhea and she's under weight, even for a young boxer. When they are home she is mostly indoors. They alternate crate time with their small dog to avoid fights. When they aren't home she's crated. She's very friendly with adults and kids. She does like to give hugs, but she's very gentle and wants to rest her head on you while you scratch her. She is house and crate trained with a wire crate. She's crated 10-12 hours at a time. She goes to Petsmart for grooming and the reports say she does well with baths and nail trims. For exercise she just gets to play in the back yard, but most of the yard is a pool, so she doesn't have room to run. She seems to be on the low side of energetic, for a boxer. Her owner says she likes to sit with someone and cuddle and watch TV. That might change if she had a playmate.She eats Iams dry food They sent her away to training. She went "to stay in the country where she would have room to run" while she was at boarding/training. The owner said her personality was more submissive when she came home and she's just now getting back to herself. She pulls a little on a leash at first, but then settles down. Verbal correction and redirection are used when needed. She allows people to take things from her; no problems. Nothing bothers or upsets her. She is up to date on her shots and on HWP. She's such a sweet, cute boxer. Her owners don't have time for her and they really just seem to want her out. They did mention taking her to a shelter. She's so sweet and gentle. She did stand up and put her paws on my shoulders, but she just rested her head against me while I rubbed her head. She's been drinking out of the pool and she has chronic diarrhea and she's under weight, even for a young boxer. Her health is suffering in her current home. I'm concerned about a bump on her head, but it looks stable for now. I'll feel better once one of our vets checks her out. The owner said it was an old injury that scarred over and then became a fatty tumor. Their vet supposedly said it was nothing to worry about.

Other Info: Zora is a tall 7 year old spayed sealed brindle female with natural ears and docked tail. She has a good weight on her. She is being surrendered because her owner has a 14 month old child and she does not want dog hair on the floor where the child crawls. Zora is very vigilant and protective of mom and baby when dad not home. NO aggression or protectiveness with mom. When owner is away, she is kept inside uncrated. Per family she is not destructive but will get into trash. When dad came home she was bouncy, playful, happy. I observed the baby grabbing her jowlies and Zora just ignored it. Wen we first came to the house dad was not home. Zora gave warning growls when we entered the house, but not the attack kind. She then went to the couch where the baby was sleeping and laid in front of the couch right there. Mm was on the couch by her baby and if i approached the couch I got warning growls, but no overt signs of impending attack. I was finally able to sit on the couch next to her, but not real close to the baby. She watched me very closely with ears back, but no more growling. I was able to scratch by her nub and slowly work my way up to neck and ears. She continued to watch me very closely. I DID NOT attempt to touch the child. She is house trained and crate trained. She does well for bathing and grooming, loves the water. She is good for nail trims. She gets exercise by walks, going to the dog park and playing in the back yard. Normal energy level. She is not possessive with toys. She knows the commands for high five and sit. Very little pulling per owner when walking on a leash. She is disciplined by verbal correction. Vaccinations were done in July of 2013 and she is not on heart worm prevention. Zora does not appear the stated age. She is in very good shape, well mannered and appeared just a typical boxer after dad came home. I suggest that any foster home or adoptive home with children (especially small ones) be very aware how protective she is. I do not feel that she is aggressive at other times. I feel she would be a good family member for anyone also, per the mom, this protective behavior just started when the baby was born.

Other Info: Wrigley is a little taller than average 70 pound neutered fawn male with natural ears and docked tail. His owners want to surrender him because they have three young boys and their after school activities keep the family too busy now. They feel Wrigley deserves to be with a family that can spend more time with him as he loves being with people. When owner is home, Wrigley stays inside free to roam house. When owner is away, Wrigley stays mostly inside, but they may leave him out in the yard if the weather is nice. He was not visible when we first entered the home, as they closed the interior doors when we arrived and he happened to be in one of the rooms. When he did come out he just pranced over to us wiggling his tail and snuggling into us for petting. He did not jump and seemed very gentle upon greeting him. He is housetrained and rings a bell when he needs to go out for pottie break. They don't crate, but when he goes by their parent's house he is in a wire crate. He doesn't care for the crate, but will go in when told. He gets baths outside with a water hose. He loves the water and will play in the sprinklers, or anything that has water coming out of it. Owner has never trimmed his nails. For exercise he plays with the family, their Chihuahua, or in the backyard. High energy - loves to play ball, chase his tail and the laser light. He was having a blast, but could accidentally knock over small children in his excitement. Wrigley spent a lot of time chasing his tail, but the owner said he mostly does it for extended lengths of time when strangers are around. Did not seem toy possessive. Eats Beneful brand dry dog food. He knew sit when they first got him at age 1 1/2. They have taught him shake and down. Owner says he pulls a little on the leash. Owner uses verbal correction, but they really never had to discipline him. If they tell him "no", he understands what that means. Owner said he may have lightly swatted him on the tail once. Owner says he will let you take food or toys away from him without any issues. He jumps at fence and barks when he hears people, or other dogs on the other side. He has gotten along with all the dogs he has met except for a neighbors Great Dane. Not current on vaccinations. Last vetting done in January 2013. Not on heartworm prevention. Last given in March 2013. The volunteers did not observe anything that concerned them about his behavior. Wrigley was very friendly and leaned in for petting. He did get excited and jump up on their lap to give kisses, but got down when they said "no". He is protective of the kids if he hears a male at the door. Not aggressive, just positions himself between the kids and the stranger until he knows they are okay. No known illnesses. Has some chipped teeth and a soft squishy mass on upper right portion of left hind leg. Owner said it just appeared one day a few weeks ago and just keeps growing. He let the volunteers touch, squeeze and feel it with no reaction.
