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.

Other Info: ***URGENT DUE TO HAIR LOSS***

Shelter believes his hair loss and overweight state are possibly due to thyroid condition. He was an owner surrender, so on 24 hour hold and will not make adoptions due to hair loss. Colt is an approximately 3 year old 75 to 80 pound large neutered flashy brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. Colt is a very large, very strong brindle male that was owner surrendered to the shelter. He is a large meathead that is overweight and very strong. He did jump up on me a couple of times, but when I verbally corrected and removed his paws from me, he stayed down and did not jump up again. He seemed a little scared in the kennel, so I gave him some treats through the kennel door first. He took treats gently. He showed no signs of any human aggression even though he was quite timid in the kennel. He pottied as soon as we entered the play yard and his kennel was clean, so I would say he is probably house trained. He gave soft kisses and responded to attention in the play yard. He followed me, but would not play with the few toys that were available. He was sweet when not over-stimulated, but he is large and it was sometimes hard to break his focus. Previous owner said he was fine with their children, but did not indicate ages. Due to his size and strength, recommend children 10 and above. Previous owner said he was fine with their schnauzer, but that he is "leery" towards other dogs when they would take him out for walks.. They said he would need someone with a strong experienced hand for new meet & greets. I walked him from his kennel to the outside of the building. He was slightly reactive to the hyper Border Collie jumping like a pogo stick, but all he did is push his nose up on the fence. He didn't vocalize or try to go after him. We had to pass right up against the kennel though. Around the corner, with kennels on both sides, where we had a wide walkway, he was unreactive to the barking and jumping, but was pulling strongly to get outside. Once we were out in the yard for a few minutes, he discovered the kennels below the play yard and was pushing against the fence, with some barking and vocalization that was akin to screaming. He was not gnashing and violent. I did not see the behavior as aggressive.as much as overly excited and wanting to get close to the other dogs to play. This over excitement can create issues, but I feel it is a workable problem. It is obvious he hasn't been exercised as much as he should be recently. This volunteer would also recommend a strong experienced foster and would want to be very careful with introductions or separation arrangements at first just due to his size and strength. Once we had been in the yard for a few minutes...and with some treats, I was above to get Colt to walk with me, to sit, lay down, and to stay for brief periods. He has had some training obviously. When we went to go back into the kennel area, he walked with us on the leash and was not pulling as hard as he had coming out of the area. No cat test was available, however, based upon his large size and his apparent over-excitement, cats initially would not be advised. He is overweight by at least 10-15 lbs. and has hair loss over most of his back and sides. He was tested and is negative for both demodex and sarcoptic mange. Possible allergy or alopecia? He is heart worm negative per the shelter. His toenails need clipped and his skin was a little flaky, but probably just needs a bath. Ears were clean. Teeth had a little tartar on them. No lumps or bumps of any kind. No signs of illness. Tech said he was surrendered yesterday, but that his 24 hr. hold began this morning at 8:00 am. The room he was in was not full by any means, so being full won't put him in jeopardy. She did not think he was in immediate danger.

Other Info: ***URGENT***HAS KC

This is a small sized 7 month to 1 year old unaltered fawn female with natural ears and docked tail in a shelter. This little girl is a sweetheart! She was so happy to see people and love on me and my kids. She is very scared but didn't let that stop her from loving, leaning, and kidney beaning! She was very wiggly but not jumpy. She did well with my 7 and 10 year old. This girl was all about the people. She was not at all interested in the other dogs as we walked by the other kennels. She did pull on the leash some as she was trying to get away from all the barking of the other dogs. She was too excited to show me any of her talents however she sat the majority of the time that we were with her. She wanted to be right by us. She was not at all interested in treats just wanted to be hugged. She was very attentive when I was talking to her. Cat test not available. This sweet girl is HW + and coughing. She did not have any lumps or bumps and her teeth looked really good. She does appear to have had a litter. She was treated for fleas and had visible flea dirt. Her right ear looked really red. She has her dew claws and appears to have been kept outside as her coat was thick. The shelter is under construction and did not have an area for me to take her outside so I don't feel the pics do her coat or markings justice. Also, don't let the ugly collar fool you this girl is very friendly and sweet! She has beautiful light brown eyes and flashy markings. She is very attentive and loving. She is very young and need to be seen for her cough. We won't have much time to save her!

Other Info: ***RESCUE ONLY*** We have worked hard to work with this shelter and they have saved this boxer from EU specifically for rescue to take her. Please help her!****Lucy is a one year old small sized unaltered fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. She was very wiggly. She was curious about her surroundings. None jumpy for her age. She only jumped up on me one time and it was ever so gently. Considering her young age I thought she was really well behaved by not jumping up ALL the time. We were in the play yard and she approached another dog through the fence in the next play yard and immediately sat and acted intimidated. She didn't bark or anything towards two different dogs that were in the next play yard. Lucy knew sit really well. She seemed to be a very smart girl. She quickly learned I had treats in my pocket. Every time I went to reach into the pocket she waited and sometime sat while I pulled the treats out. Not able to cat test. She is just a young lady and she had no obvious health problems. Hw status unknown. Her teeth and ears were very clean. Lucy was surrendered to the shelter for supposedly food aggression. The other dog in the home was also a smaller breed dog. While I had Lucy in the play yard and we were near the fence and the dog in the next yard was very close I started to feed them both treats at the same time. Lucy had absolutely NO reaction to be given treats right next to a dog her same size. With her being so young I do believe she is easily trained and would be adopted fairly quickly. Lucy is in a small rural shelter and needs out sooner than later. She is a favorite of the shelter Manager. Will you give her the chance to find her happy ever after, since her previous owner gave up on her?

Eval from another group: Lucy is a 1 year old female boxer that was an owner surrender due to food "aggression". The shelter said the owner had a small dog that she fed side by side w/ Lucy. When Lucy would finish her food, she'd go over to the other dog's bowl and a fight would break out. The shelter has witnessed zero aggression out of Lucy. The owner brought Lucy to the shelter to be PTS. Because of this, she will not make adoptions. The shelter thinks she is absolutely wonderful and is hoping rescue can help her. She is a classic fawn female pup and tiny. Maybe 40lbs. She is in great condition. No lumps, bumps or hair loss of any kind. Her teeth are pearly white. The shelter is unsure if she is spayed, but it looks to me like there is a spay scar (disclaimer...I'm not a vet). She has obviously never been bred. Her disposition is perfect. She is puppy playful, but not jumpy. I spent approx. 45 min out in the fenced in yard playing with her. She comes when called, and knows how to sit. She loves giving slobbery kisses and was so appreciative of any and all attention. There was another dog off leash on the other side of the chain link fence (who was VERY growly) and Lucy just wiggled her nub and play bowed. Zero aggression or posturing. Heart worm status unknown because the shelter does zero vetting. Lucy is as sweet as can be and VERY adoptable. As an OS she is on borrowed time at this small/rural shelter.

Other Info: Bear is a 5 year old unaltered flashy fawn medium sized male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. Bear is a happy boy with lots of butt wiggles. He is a bit on the jumpy side and just wants attention. He is curious about his surroundings but does not show any interest in the other dogs. According to the shelter ACO, he has had a great temperament and hasn't given them any trouble. He acts much younger than 5 which in part is why he was returned after being adopted by an active 70 year old lady who said he was too strong for her to handle. (Initially Bear was surrendered by his "foster mom" for being too over protective of her, was then adopted and returned due to his energy levels being more than the new adopter could handle ) Would recommend older children as he jumps up and due to possible people resource guarding until more is known. Did not seem to pay any attention even when up close to one in a kennel growing at him directly. In the yard, he saw several other dogs out being walked and showed no reaction. He wanted to go play in the sun like they were. Does not appear to know any commands. He pulls on the leash as if he's not been trained at all. He does appear to be house trained as he keeps his kennel clean and pottied copious amounts when we were in the exercise yard. Cat test done and definitely shows way too much interest in the cats. Stared intently and did not pay any attention to attempts to redirect focus. He is on the small side weighing about 40-45 lbs and could definitely use some groceries to fill him out. His coat is dull and shedding. Tail has either had a bad crop job or maybe old injury as it is a little long and the tip appears almost to be bent. On his front left leg, there is an open sore that needs attention, Origin unknown but looks like it needs medical attention before it gets infected. No other health concerns noted, Heart worm status unknown. Bear has been living with a single foster mom for about a year and recently has shown some resource guarding of her. The incidents involve two male neighbors with whom Bear has been around in the home on numerous occasions. When the neighbors visit in the foster mom's home, Bear plays with them and lays on the men as if they were family. There have been no issues while they are in the home or in the yard of the foster mom. However, while on a walk with foster mom, they met one of the men out in the street and Bear responded by getting in to between the man and mom and growling at him. In another incident, Bear was in the back seat while neighbor and foster mom were in front seat of her car ; Bear tried to climb over seat while growling at neighbor. It was felt by those involved that Bear is being over protective of his "person" when he is outside of his comfort zone and normal surroundings. Bear has not shown any food aggression, only over protection of his "owner ", the foster mom who is a single lady and apparent there are not any children in the home. He would place himself in between the neighbor men and the owner in situations outside of his home and usual surroundings, The ACO thought maybe Bear was reacting when outside of his comfort zone. She also thought he was given the run of the home as he did not seem to know any commands. He did not have any reactions to the 2nd adopter who returned him after only 3 days as he was too strong for the 70 yr old who adopted him. He was not interested in treats just people ..

Other Info: This is a 7 to 9 month old unaltered medium sized brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. This is a gorgeous brindle boy and he reminded me how fun young boxer boys are.The most joyous little boxer boy I have seen in a long time. Not obnoxious joyous, just a happy curious loving boxer boy. He repeatedly kept coming back to us for attention and affection. He was sweet and gentle when taking treats and was a great leaner once you started petting him. He was a delight. If I had a spot at my house, I'd be turning in my foster request rather than this eval. Get him while you can....this one will fly out the door. He did jump up repeatedly, but it was gently and you could tell he was seeking affection. For this reason, I would say children 5 and older would be appropriate. There was a small Scotty mix also in the play yard and although he was interested in playing, the Scotty was not. The pup was not aggressive by any means, and was respectful when the Scotty did not want to play. The ACO was keeping him in the office so I did not see interaction with any other dogs. He did demonstrate sit, but would not demonstrate any other commands. He walked with us without a leash, although it was in a closed hallway and then into a fenced play area. He has not pottied in the office he is staying in, but has pottied in the hallway if she didn't get him out in time. She believes he may be well on his way to being potty trained. He walked past the cat room, which was open, but did not venture in. No lumps or bumps at all. On his right rear foot, two of his pads are turned up slightly, which causes 3 of his nails to not touch the floor. It does not appear to give him any problem, however, they were sharp and needed trimmed. His ears and teeth were clean. He is of normal weight and he has a beautiful brindle coat. I saw no sign of fleas or ticks. His 72 hr. hold was up 4/17. The ACO says he is not in immediate danger, however, the ACO would like him in Legacy's hands sooner than later.

Other Info: This is a 6+ year old 65 pound medium sized unaltered flashy fawn male with cropped ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. Volunteer was not allowed to remove dog from kennel area, so just had him at end of kennel run...very loud with lots of barking. He was quiet and reserved, but did have some wiggles for us. Very unsure of his environment. His face has a lot of white, but I would still age him 6-7 yrs. He did not jump up on us at all. He gave a couple of soft kisses. He is a tall boxer, and even though he did not jump up, I feel he would be best around kids 5+ just due to his size. He was gentle and quiet, but again, it is so hard to ascertain true personality when you can't even get them away from all the distractions. He was caged in a row with many dogs that were reactive, barking and jumping like crazy. He did not react to the other dogs at all...except that he wanted to get away from them. He did pull a little on the leash, but he could see someone opening the door...and wanted to get out of the area. He would not demonstrate any commands at all, but I feel he may have just been so distracted by all the barking and jumping. No cat test was available. I found no lumps or bumps of any kind on him. He would not let me see his teeth. His ears looked moderately clean. He does not appear sick in any way. Per ACO, he is heart worm negative. He was just a tad thin, but not terribly so. His elbows have small patches, so he has been outside some. I did not see any scars or obvious wounds. ACO indicated that he would probably be neutered tomorrow....so he is not on the radar for Urgent right now.

Other Info: ***Update 4/4: Owner has moved and still has Tuggs with her, but needs him placed ASAP*** Tuggs is a large sized 5 year old neutered brindle male with natural ears and docked tail. His owner is surrendering him and his fursister Asia because they lost their job and now their home. They cannot afford the pet deposits for where they are moving and the Boxers are over the weight restrictions. Tuggs is an inside dog. He is let out to potty and play in a backyard with a 4 ft. chain link fence. He has never jumped over it. Tuggs was a very large friendly wiggly boxer from first encounter. He was immediately interested in getting attention. He has pure boxer joy and jumps like a deer for seemingly no reason at all. He has had limited exposure to infants and toddlers, although not unsupervised. Tuggs did notice two children walking by out front, but did not bark at them. He is house trained but not crate trained. Tuggs likes to play in water, so no bathing issues. His nails are trimmed at the vet. He does pull some on leash, but not badly. Not walked frequently. Plays in the yard for exercise. High energy level, but not obnoxious energy. He played, ran around the fence, did his deer jumps, and then would come back for attention, then "rinse and repeat". Owner says he can sit, but he would not demonstrate. Tuggs responds to "Huggs for Tuggs" and stands/jumps up on them to hug them. Owner says not aggressive with food or toys. Tuggs did not jump up on me, but did jump on his owners a couple of times. He does dig. He lives with a female boxer and a female Bassett/Terrier mix, and a male pit mix. He barked at other dogs going by, but it was not aggressive barking or lunging. His last last vaccines were 1.5 yrs. ago and last HW was about 1 yr. ago. Tuggs was a very happy go lucky wiggle butt of a guy. He is a very handsome tall boy and has a sweet disposition. He is playful, friendly and curious. He gave kisses right away. He took treats gently from my fingers. He did not act aggressively even when feeding treats to the other dogs right next to him. Tuggs has ear mites. The inside of his ears are scratched up where he has been digging at them. There were no lumps or bumps on Tuggs. His teeth were fairly clean. Tuggs is approx. 80-85 lbs, but is tall and in good shape (not overweight). His coat is beautiful with no hair loss.

Other Info: ***Update 4/4: Owner has moved and still has Asia with her, but needs her placed ASAP*** Asia is a 6 year old medium sized unaltered fawn female with natural ears and docked tail. His owner is surrendering her and her fur brother Tuggs because they lost their job and now their home. They cannot afford the pet deposits for where they are moving and the Boxers are over the weight restrictions. Asia is kept inside and let outside to potty. She is house trained but no crate training and not kept crated. Asia is kept indoors while owner is gone, however, they say there is always someone home. Owner expressed that Asia was very anxious and shy and did not think she would necessarily do well with strangers. She came right up to me and was giving me kisses in less than a minute. She returned to me throughout the eval to lean in and to give me kisses. They have been exposed to some children, (mainly infant and toddler) but were not left alone with them, however, they also did not knock them down and were not rough around them. Asia doesn't really like baths much, but tolerates it. Nails are trimmed at the vet. Backyard has a 4 ft. chain link fence. They are not walked regularly. Asai was more reserved. She did wiggle and returned for affection and petting a number of times. She follows Tuggs lead and is submissive to him and the other dogs in the house. Asia was playful, friendly, curious, submissive, and perhaps a tad shy, but not overly so. She was a beautiful sweet girl. She did not jump up at all. Asia does not bark much. Dogs and children walked by in front of the house and although she ran to the fence, she didn't bark much, even though Tuggs barked. They are friendly through the fence with the dog next door. (another boxer) Asia will sit in the morning and present her paw for them to say "Hi, Good morning. How are you?" and say she sulks if they don't do that with her. They said the dogs know sit, but they would not demonstrate any commands. Asai was dragged around by her collar by another dog before they got her, so consequently, she does not like a collar. They recommended that we use a harness instead. Asia picks up food from her bowl and takes it over and gives it to the 9 yr. pit mix. She is a momma an a nurturer. Although I did not observe it, the owners say she has anxiety. Last vacccinated approx. 1.5 yrs. ago Approx. 1 yr. ago since last dosage of HWP. This is a beautiful sweet girl that was used for breeding for 2-3 litters. Her last litter was about a year ago. She had issues in last pregnancy and vet advised they spay/neuter. They couldn't afford spay, so had Tuggs neutered. She is afraid of thunder and will go hide in a closet when she is stressed. Asia's teeth are showing some tartar. Asia has a grape sized growth in the front edge of her mouth on both upper and lower jaws. (I have a picture) Could be hyperplasia, but I have never seen it be that round before. Her nipples are very long and distended. She urinated about every 5-10 min. in the yard while I was there so she may have a UTI. She is currently in heat. Both dogs appear to have ear mites, but Tuggs are worse. I did not observe fleas on the boxers. No hair loss on any of the dogs. Asia ate grass a good part of the time in the yard. Asia is approx. 55-60 lbs. Her coat is a deep mahogany. They appear from coats and body size to be well cared for.

Other Info: *Update 2/20: Laila's owner is having hip surgery in March and Laila is in desperate need of a foster home ASAP. Her fur brother passed away and she would do great with a compainion. She has been going to dog parks and does well with the other dogs and people.* Laila is a 5 year old small sized spayed fawn femaile with natural ears and a docked tail. The owner went through a drastic lifestyle change earlier this year and she was forced into a small apartment. She is concerned for Laila's health and well being. She also can not afford to continue to pay the vet bills that she requires for treatment of her allergic reactions. Laila is free to roam the house while the owner is home and away. When the volunteer walked into the apartment, Laila was barking at her and backing away. She remained noticeably cautious the whole time the volunteer was there, but warmed up enough to lick her hands and let her pet her head at first, and a little while later she licked her face and let her scratch her back. The owner says she jumps in the air like a kangaroo when her favorite people walk in. She also mentioned that since in the new apartment she has begun to bark at other dogs while out walking, but she is taken to daycare on occasion and does great with the other dogs there. She is house trained and crate trained. She can stay up to 8 hours in the crate. Laila does great being groomed. She can be bathed in the tub, and is good for nail trims at the groomers. Laila is taken for walks 4 to 5 times a day, and is taken to daycare on occasion. She also has a brother (Boston Terrier) that she plays with while at home. The volunteer did not see much play from Laila while she was there because she was so cautious of her, but the owner says that she loves to run and play with her brother. Laila is not possessive with toys. The owner said that since she moved Laila has been a very inconsistent eater and will sometimes go up to 2 days without eating. She can coax her to eat with chicken broth but does not like to do that very often due to all of the additional sodium. Laila is very well trained and showed the volunteer how polite she can be. Laila was able to show the volunteer sit, down, shake "say howdy", stay, come, and wait. Laila did not pull on the leash but she was sure to stay ahead of us, and was very interested in all of the smells around the complex. The owner only uses verbal corrections for Laila. She knows the word "No" and is a very good listener. Laila has no problems with food or toys being taken away from her. The owner even mentioned that she and her brother often nibble on the same nylabone at the same time. She barks at other dogs while out walking and is jumpy around her favorite people, but can be told "Off". Laila is up to date on vaccinations as of May 2013. She is also up to date on heart worm prevention. The owner feels like Laila would do best in a home with another dog so that she is not left alone. She does not think that Laila would do well with cats. But she says she would be ok with children. Laila is more comfortable around females, and would do better in a single family home with a back yard to run around in. Laila will be very unsure and timid in her new home for a while, but from the little progress the volunteer made with her, she thinks she would warm up in a few days. Laila is anxious around new people, loud noises, cars driving by while on a walk. She is good with children and at the vet. Laila is currently on metronidazole to treat an ongoing colitis problem due to new bacterias in the apartment complex. She has 5 more days of this medication left. She is also given benedryl on occasion to combat other allergic reactions. The owner also uses a topical Tritop ointment to treat Lailas paws which become very red after walking on the grass in the area.

Other Info: Roxy is a 7 year old unaltered medium sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. The owner took the boxer from a family member when the family member was transferred out of town. The current owner's home and yard are small and they feel she deserves a better place to live. They also have a smaller dog, Bella, that they intend to keep. The owner indicated that her husband is anxious to give Roxy up and has threatened to take her to the pound if she's not rehomed soon. Roxy is kept in the kitchen and backyard. The owners have a small child who Roxy is great with, but at times knocks her over unintentionally. They are also expecting their second child. Roxy was great with my 10 year old and I. She was a little timid at first, but warmed up quickly, wanting lots of attention and love. She provided lots of kisses in return. The owner says they do not know much about how she was treated previously, but she was more timid when they first got her, and they suspect she may have been hit in her prior home. She is house trained and not crate trained. Not sure how she is for bathing, grooming, or nail trims, but her nails were nicely trimmed. The dog runs the fence in the small backyard and likes to dig holes. Roxy was a calm dog, though I'm sure if given the space and a playmate (human or fur), she would show more energy. I think she has a very nice temperament. Owner indicated she gets along well with their other small dog, including playing. Roxy eats Beneful. They tried a more expensive, higher quality food and she did not take well to it. As a result, they feed the two dogs separately. She knows the basics and the owner believes she learned them at home. Owner indicates she's okay on a leash, but it's not done frequently, so pulling possible. She is disciplined using verbal correction and corralling in the kitchen at this point. Owner believes she may have been hit in the past, but can't confirm that. Roxy allows the toddler to climb on her, but specifics of toy removal not discussed. She was not jumpy at all and has a really calm nature. I think Roxy would be great in a home with children or without. She has been digging in the yard, but that can be attributed to boredom as she's not getting a lot of attention and stimuli. No vet information available, so assuming she is not up to date on vaccinations or heart worm prevention, and heart worm status is unknown. Roxy is a really sweet girl with gorgeous brown eyes. She has great coloring and a nice, calm temperament. She has been living in a town home and is used to smaller quarters, so I think she'd do well in a small house/town home with a yard. She likes to run the fence in the backyard for exercise, but if given alternative exercise, she may be good in an apartment. She is good with the family's toddler and was very snuggly with me and my 10 year old son. She was a little timid when we first came in, but quickly warmed up. Unknown if any other stimuli cause her to worry or behave erratically. No known illnesses or injuries. She does have a small lump on her right ear and on the back of her neck on the left side.

Other Info: Mr. Jones desperately needs us. He was adopted from a local shelter in January. He seems to have a high prey drive, mostly brought on when the 13-15 year old Dachshund he lives with instigates. His owners have been working with him and are in over their heads. They have tried to return him to the shelter they adopted him from, but due to the fact he has killed a bunny and a kitten, he will be EU'd if he is returned. We are his only chance. He needs an experienced foster home that will be able to work with him. Mr. Jones is a 2 to 3 year old small neutered flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered because the owners have chickens, bunnies, cats, kittens, and rats and Mr. Jones has developed (or perhaps always had) a prey drive. They have a miniature dachshund that is around 13-15 and he and the boxer have gotten into it a time or two. They have lost a bunny and a kitten to Mr. Jones, but owner was quick to point out that their dachshund started the aggression on the bunny and the kitten and then Mr. Jones picked them up and shook them. Jones didn't start the aggression and he didn't maul them, he just shook them and it killed them. The dachshund has also been the instigator between him and Mr. Jones. The last time, Jones grabbed him by the head and did cause some puncture wounds on the dachshund's head. Jones was taken to the dog park about a week or so ago and when let off leash, he jumped on the back of a Basset Hound and began biting him. No damage. They then put him back on leash and continued at the park where he went after another dog. They have two adult cats and Jones has been swatted and is afraid of them, however, they stay inside and owners are afraid if cats get out and Jones sees them in yard, he may go after them like he does the other small animals. In both occasions that he tussled with the dachshund, the dachshund was the instigator according to the owners. Jones is kept inside unless carefully supervised in the backyard. He is only let out to potty basically, or walks around the block. They have a four year old and Jones is calm around him and has never knocked him down. There have been other kids (ages 7 and 9) in the household and Jones is fine with them...and their friends. He jumped up and pulled on one child's leather coat. It frightened the child, but once the coat was off, he had no interest in the child. They surmise he was drawn to the leather. Jones returned to me over and over for affection/attention. Typical young boxer behavior. When he is let out routinely. Not crate trained... they don't have one. Unknown on how he is for baths and nail trims. He gets exercise mostly from walks outside of the yard. Not daily, but 4 to 5 times a week. He is very high energy. This guy needs a yard that he can run and play in. His play is heavily monitored due to all the small animals in the backyard. He is a very wiggly, kissy boxer. He just needs direction, exercise and training...in a yard with no small animals. Tears toys up, but not aggressive that they have seen. He currently has no toys due to tearing them up. Jones knows sit, down, and shake He does not stay yet. The house seems quite chaotic. My opinion is that he does not receive enough attention (between 3 young children, another dog, cats, and three other varieties of small animals) . Jones pulled a little on the leash, but settled down quickly. He knew what a leash was and was anxious, happy and kept running to the door. Obviously enjoys walks. He is disciplined with verbal correction, whistle, and finger snap. I did have treats and he would sit, down and wait for treats. I also gave a treat to the dachshund in front of Jones and there was no reaction, or attempt to take it from the smaller dog. He is jumpy (attention seeking) but when told off and feet removed, he would stay off for several minutes before returning for attention again. He was reactive when we tried to get him to lay down fully, but not aggressive... just seemed scared to have hands on him enforcing a behavior. May have been abused in some fashion prior. He is a very high energy boy. They are not letting him out often enough... because of poor enclosures in the back yard that the small animals can get out of and that Jones can get into, so Jones is pottying in the house. Owner stated they didn't think they were letting him out often enough (they say they try to let him out 5 to 6 times a day). He is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. Was playful and attentive, but needs training to harness energy. Shelter indicated 5 years old, however, I believe he is no more than 2 years old from teeth, skin/coat and from behavior. No small animals at all..including cats or small dogs in my opinion. Probably other dogs his size will be fine, however, I believe he needs appropriate socialization training so he knows how to meet other dogs. He showed no aggression at all while I was there...and the dachshund and the cats were in the room. They don't want to take to shelter. They tried a week or so ago and after sharing that he killed kitty/bunny, shelter said they would euthanize, so they brought him back home and called us. Pulling on Jones collar to try and get him off bed resulted in him growling at owner, one time only (and they said he was dead asleep) He did not bite or snap and did get down when verbally told to do so. House is quite chaotic and I believe that adds to Jones insecurities and energized behavior. A quieter calmer atmosphere would help bring out the best features in Jones. I think he is reactive to all the things going on around him.

He was rescued 1 year ago from a different rescue at 4 years old. His moms financial situation has changed and they struggle with providing Murphy with the food and vetting he needs. He can be a little mischievous and steal a childs sock or shoe, most likely out of boredom. Needs an active family who needs to add a cuddler to their home.

Other Info: Layla is a 60 pound 4 1/2 year old spayed flashy fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered for financial reasons. Crated at night, roams house during the day. She is awesome with adults and kids, loves everyone. She is house and crate trained. She has no problems with bathing or grooming, she gets in the shower with her owner. She has never had her nails trimmed as they stay short with her daily activity, so not sure how she would be for a nail trim. She plays with her fur sister, a mini pinscher and goes on walks for exercise. Layla is high energy, very playful and happy. She is not possessive with toys. The dad did basic training, and she knows, sit, stay, come, roll over. She is very well behaved. Her leash walking is good. She is disciplined with verbal correction, but they never had to correct her much. If you tried to take her food bowl or a rawhilde from her, she would just look at you. The volunteer tested this, and got the same reaction. She barely barks. is not aggressive, and not needy. She is current on heart worm prevention and vaccinations. Layla is the perfect boxer, and the volunteer feels she would find a forever home really quick. They found her as a stray when she was 5 months old, and kept her. She is on a Banfield health plan and goes every 6 months for a comprehensive check up. She is healthy & happy. Very friendly and wiggly. She lets the 2 year old girl pounce on her. She has a mini pincher as a fur sister, and they love each other. Layla also likes cats.. she does not really bother them. She does not like the vet too much, but loves car rides and kids. She has a small bump on her front paw, no other known illnesses or injuries.

Other Info: Bella is a 6 year old spayed large brindle female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because her family has moved into a home with only a small patch of grass in the backyard (besides the pool). They are not home often due to work (Mr. is a high school coach, plus sons are in sports) and sports. The family feels they do not have the time, attention, and yard that Bella and her litter-mate, Daisy, deserve. They have been trying to find a better home for both girls. Bella is kept in the small dog run outside or on the tile inside. She is not crated, but she is put into the laundry room with Daisy and the doorway is only blocked by laundry baskets and neither dog jumps out. She is trained to stay on the tile in the laundry/kitchen and not go onto the carpet. Bella was really good with me and with the family. They have a young son and she allowed him to love on her just fine. She is a little jealous if her sister is getting attention and vocalizes a bit, but stops with verbal correction or instruction to go into the other room. She is house trained. She is not crate trained, but she's trained to stay in specific areas of the home Not sure how she behaves for bathing, grooming, or nail trims, but she was clean and had nice nails. Bella exercises in the dog run and plays with her sister, Daisy. She used to run 3.5 miles per day with her owner but that stopped a couple years ago. She is energetic and loves attention. I think she's got typical boxer energy and play drive. She is not possessive with toys. She eats dry food with bones as a treat. Training done at home, just the basics. Her leash walking is great. Owner used to run 3.5 miles daily with her and her sister. She is disciplined with verbal correction, physical correction directing Bella to the other room. No behaviors noted that a new foster home or adoptive home should be aware of. She's lived with her sister since birth, so no female-female issues shown. She is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. The owners would really like Bella and Daisy to go to a new home together as they've been together since birth. The owner's father is their vet, so the girls are in good shape and up to date on check ups, etc. Owner indicated that she has the AKC papers for both girls. Nothing noted that makes her act differently than normal or worried, though she got a little verbal when she wanted attention from me that her sister was receiving. No known illnesses or injuries.

Other Info: ***Update 4/10: Owner has talked to the shelter about surrendering her and the shelter called us. They are full to the point that they will have to EU in order to make room for her. They have asked the owner to hold off for a few days so they can try to figure something out and asked us if we have room for her**** Penny is a 9 year old unaltered small sized (maybe 45 lbs) fawn female with natural ears and docked tail. Owner recently moved in with his daughter and Penny does not get along with the other dog (a 13+ year old female golden named Amber) after the other dog took a bone away from her. They are currently separating the dogs with baby gates. Owner said the girls have known each other for years and they never had any issues until Amber took away Penny's bone. Also, owner is old and frail and not steady on his feet and they are worried Penny will knock him over, which is a valid concern. Penny also does not get along with the cats. There is always someone home and Penny is kept both inside and out. She loved having company. They said she is good with every human she meets. Penny is house trained. Penny is crate trained and sleeps in a crate at night. Penny is fine with baths and nail trimmings. Penny runs around in the yard for play and the 9 year old in the house plays with her. For her age she is very active. They said she plays loud but is gentle. I do not believe Penny likes to share food or toys based on her reaction to Amber. She eats Kirkland's weight management dry food. Penny knows sit but not much else. She is a well behaved girl overall. It is unknown how she is on a leash. I forgot to ask, but John verbally corrected Penny when I was there and she responded. She growls and snaps when someone tries to take away food or treats. UTD on vaccinations. Penny has never been on HWP. Although they say Penny and Amber don't get along they were nose to nose through a baby gate without issue. She is a very sweet girl whose life has been turned upside down. I think she would be an easy foster for someone who knows how to handle grudge holding female boxers :) She is somewhat scared of loud thunderstorms but does not become destructive when she is scared. She has a large mass on her right front leg that the vet said is harmless. There is also a pea sized bump on her right shoulder and a small grape sized bump on her left shoulder.

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: Winnie is a 4 year old spayed fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. Winnie was adopted from the shelter by her owner at the end of 2013. Since that time Winnie has demonstrated 3-4 aggressive instances with her male boxer. These have been over toys, attention and sleeping areas. Owner has been very careful to put most toys away, has not allowed Winnie on the bed and has been careful about attention and watching for cues since these happenings. Her male boxer will and has defended himself each time that Winnie has been aggressive. Blood was drawn once but each time the altercations were broken up with no serious damage to boxers or people. Winnie has been nothing but loving towards all people in the home. Winnie is kept in the kennel while owner is at work. Owner works in Dallas so the crating can be 8-12 hours. Winnie does well while crated in her wire crate and keeps a clean crate. While home Winnie is allowed to have run of the house. She and her boxer brother are both let outside in the backyard for exercise, play and potty time. Winnie is an absolute love with everyone, including children. She was my new best friend upon meeting her. She has not had Winnie around any other dogs besides her personal since getting her. She is house and crate trained. She is cooperative for bath time. Unknown how her leash walking is, owner has taken her on a few walks, but mainly she gets exercise in the backyard and house. While I was there we set outside talking and I observed the dogs playing and included a short video. Winnie has an average energy level for her age. She likes to play hard, then sleep hard! She does seem to exhibit a bit of alpha behavior, but overall during the hour I was there she and her brother played well. I did not witness any aggressive behavior with growling or snapping. She did try to mount/hump him, but that was over quickly with no drama. Winnie alternated between playing with him and coming over with wiggles and kisses for us. She was very affectionate and loved attention. She has been toy aggressive 2 times. She was told Winnie was on Salmon & Sweet potato for allergies. Since Winnie does not show any signs of allergies she may try her on a chicken & rice food. Winnie shows some basic commands, but any formal training is unknown. She is disciplined by verbal correction and placing her in the crate have been the discipline methods. Owner does not think Winne would snap or growl if they took away food/toys. Aggression has only been directed towards the other dog. Other than that she is a very normal, friendly boxer that has no bad habits. Winnie is update on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. Her owner is a great lady that would likely be able to transition and train Winnie if time and resources were available. She is a single parent that has a teen aged special needs child at home. She fears that if a serious fight broke out between the dogs and he were home alone, that he could not handle this appropriately. She wanted another boxer as a playmate for hers boxer and this just has not been the happy love affair she was hoping for. She has not had Winnie very long and does love her, but is afraid that Winnie's behavior could get worse and worries about her son too. Honestly, Winnie was a delightful boxer girl. She only demonstrated normal behavior during my visit and I witnessed the dogs playing and interacting with no issues. Rita said things had been better since she was watching for cues but, felt she really should be able to sit on the sofa and have she or her son petting/laying next to the other dog without fear that Winnie would get jealous and leap over to snap at the other dog possibly starting a fight. Also, Winnie has been aggressive to the other dog when in the human's bed and is now not allowing Winnie free roam at night. I think Winnie has not fully adjusted to having a new environment. Her owner feels she will be best suited for a one dog home. Winnie is a sweet and beautiful girl that deserves a home that has the time, energy and patience to make her feel secure again. Winnie was owner surrendered initially after living with her owners for over 3 years. It was stated owners were moving and could only take one dog, so sweet Winnie was left at the shelter. Her next owner has her for only a week and said she was returning her due to Winnie having lots of allergies and not getting along with her dog. Next Winnie has another new home with her current owner and due to the few aggressive instances she is also wanting to have us find a "one dog" home for her. Winnie has reason to be a bit worried considering her upheaval the past few months. The owner was told that Winnie had severe allergies (that is what the previous short term adoptive family said) and since bringing her home she has taken Winnie off the benedryl and said she shows no allergic symptoms. No injuries either.

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: Freckles, aka Pecas (Spanish version) is a 60 pound flashy fawn spayed female with natural ears and docked tail. She will be 4 years old in February of 2014. Her owner is widowed and moving to another city on January 26 to live with her brother. The home has a very small backyard and that is where her two dogs will be kept. The owner's brother only wants to take in one dog, and the owner's pit is older with a chronic skin condition, so she feels like Freckles would have a better chance at being adopted. Freckles always stays outside unless it's very cold at night. Freckles is great with people. She's a little shy until she gets to sniff you and become a little better acquainted. The fence in her backyard is an 8 ft cross-hatch wire fence, so she can see people passing by...and she likes to bark at them (along with her fur brother, Poncho, who's the older pitty). She is not house or crate trained. Freckles is good when bathed by her owner. Nails are no longer being trimmed. Freckles lives in a backyard, and that's where she gets her exercise. She watches people walk by, and gives them a friendly warning. No hackles, just barking. She's only on a leash when heading to the vet's office. She really has a good energy level. Freckles is very manageable, and listens. She gets excited, but is initially shy and curious when a new guest is introduced to her environment. Within 30-45 minutes of my visit, she wanted to entice me to play with her. Her fur brother is old enough that playing is not on his agenda, but it is evident that Freckles would love a playmate to have fun with.. and spend some energy playing chase, and playing with toys, etc. Freckles' owner cooks chicken, hamburger meat & carrots in chicken broth with 4 eggs and a cup or more of oatmeal, 2x/day, morning & evening. This precious girl lost about 10 lbs since getting off of canine kibble, and starting this home-cooked diet about 4 months ago. Vitamin E and fish oil are also a part of her dietary regimen. Freckles' coat is very beautiful, soft and shiny. I was actually blown away by how beautiful she is... Freckles is gorgeous. There hasn't been any formal training. Freckles knows 'no' and feels really bad once that's said in her presence. I believe that's a very positive attribute, and indicator that she's probably a "people pleaser" in an attentive indoor environment. Acts tough, but is actually very people sensitive. She's not resource aggressive at all. Freckles would love to play, play, play, if given the chance at all. She really wants to have fun and be loved. It's not something that is happening for her at this time in backyard scenario :-( Freckles barks as she sees passer-byers in her neighborhood. In this area, the owner mentioned that kids often antagonize pets in their own yards by poking sticks and hitting the fence. Any of the behavior witnessed has been a reaction to provocations. :-( Her shots are due on 7/2014. She is on HWP and flea prevention. There is a sore on Freckles' front left paw. She was initially limping on that paw, when her owner noticed the sore. She's not limping now, but the area has grown worse very quickly! Owner has since sent pics showing the sore has healed. I cannot express how BEAUTIFUL this boxer girl is... She has caramel colored eyes, a dark mask and is a flashy fawn!!!! She's perfect in appearance. Her coat is soft and amazing, and her expressions are priceless! I made a gazillion notes for this baby's future home. Freckles gave me kisses, and embraced me (honestly, hugged my shoulders twice)!!! Once she warmed up to my presence, I received a ton of love, hugs and embraces. She really only wanted to play with me, and find out how much fun we could have together. Freckles responded to my goofing with her, and I saw some of those unique boxer maneuvers!!! Please consider this girl. I have more thoughts with regard to her well-being. This sweet-pea is beyond adorable !!!

Other Info: Patches is a spayed 9 year old female with natural ears and docked tail. She weighs about 65 to 70 lbs and is white with a fawn patch that has lightened with age. The owner cannot give Patches the time she needs to be an emotionally happy dog. The owner is gone for 11 hours and a day and Patches has to stay in her wire crate that entire time. Her owner thinks she would be happier in a different environment. She lost her boxer fur brother 6 months ago and seems depressed now. The loss changed her personality. When the owner is home Patches is free to roam the house. At night she sleeps in her crate with the door open. They have no fenced in yard so sometimes Patches is tied up on a long lead out back so she can have some fresh air and run around a little. The owner says she is outside with her when she is tied to the lead. While the owner is gone she is in her crate. Patches loves adults and kids. She bounced a LOT (see video) when I met her but not directly on me so I think she is fine with kids. She lives with a 2 year old and does fine. She is good with visitors and new animals. She is house trained and will hold it until you let her out to go. She is used to spending 11 hours a day in a wire crate. She does fine getting a bath with a water hose outside. The owner says she does not mind her nails being clipped at all. She does not get any exercise. She is a couch potato. She is low energy and does not play much. She has no toys. :( She gets 1 cup a day of Ultra for Seniors dry food. She knows sit, shake and roll over. She is good on a leash. Only verbal discipline has ever been used on her. The owner thinks she would be fine with anything being taken away from her but she has never had a rawhide, pigs ear or bone so she does not not about that. She has no bad habits. She is current on vaccinations. She is not on heartworm preventative. The owner suspects Patches has bad hips because it is hard for her to sit sometimes. She recently had some lumps removed and also had several teeth removed. She still has at least 4 or 5 more growths left the owner could not afford to move. One behind her right ear on top of her coat and the rest on her lower back under the skin. She has lost 20 pounds since her fur brother died. She would thrive if she had a dog for a companion again. Nothing bothers or disturbs her. She will bark if someone comes to the door. This Boxer has a lovely personality and craves affection.

Other Info: This is Kaliope. This girls golden eyes are so beautiful! Kali is a 4 years old sprayed brindle girl who loves to be near family. She is 59 pounds, knows sit and lie down and will do about anything for a belly rub. To say she is good with kids is an understatement. Their 3 year old daughter was hanging from every part of Kali and it caused her tail to wag out of control. She is up to date on shots, is on HW preventative, is great on a leash and is also crate trained. She had a few battle wounds on her ears from a recent fight with fur sister Marshmallow but besides that, was in overall great health. Since a recent move, Kali has two fur sisters and although they get along most of the time, Kali can be the instigator of a fight for no obvious reasons. She seems to get along fine with male dogs but has selective with her female dog friends. The family is very concerned since the three dogs are always near their small children, aged 3 years and 6 months. Kali is a true lover and family dog, but needs to be an only dog or may need slow intros when finding a fur brother. She will make someone a wonderful family member.

She is not crated, but she is put into the laundry room with Bella and the doorway is only blocked by laundry baskets and neither dog jumps out. She is trained to stay on the tile in the laundry/kitchen and not go onto the carpet. Daisy was really good with me and with the family. They have a young son and she allowed him to love on her just fine. She was not verbal and simply wanted attention as a boxer does. Instruction to go to the other room if she was being too pushy followed. She is house trained. She is not crate trained, but she's trained to stay in specific areas of the home. Not sure how she is for bathing, grooming, or nail trims, but she was clean and had nice nails. Daisy exercises in the dog run and plays with her sister, Bella. She used to run 3.5 miles per day with her owner but that stopped a couple years ago. She is energetic and loves attention. I think she's got typical boxer energy and play drive. She eats dry food with bones as a treat. Training was done at home, just the basics. Her leash walking is good. She used to run 3.5 miles/day with owner and sister Bella. She is disciplined using verbal correction, physical correction directing Daisy to the other room. No behaviors noted that foster homes or adoptive homes would need to be aware of. She's lived with her sister since birth, so no female-female issues shown. She is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. The owners would really like Bella and Daisy to go to a new home together as they've been together since birth. The owner's father is their vet, so the girls are in good shape and up to date on check ups, etc. Owner indicated that she has the AKC papers for both girls. No know illnesses or injuries.

Other Info: Gracie is a 4 year old small to average sized brindle spayed female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered due to allergies and not enough time. She is crated for 8 to 9 hours. She was very sweet and friendly. The owner was surprised because she came to me for petting/loving and stayed at my feet, but he says she is usually shy at first. They have a toddler that plays with Gracie and there has never been a problem, but the toddler doesn't play rough, lay on her, pull her ears etc. She is hose and crate trained. She tolerates baths in tub/shower. Owner doesn't know hoe she is for nail trims. Gracie does not get much exercise, the owner walks her a few times a week, but she did not behave like a Boxer that is under-exercised or needs more attention. She was very mellow, no rough play at all. I'm sure she just needs someone to bring out the Boxer in her. She is not possessive with toys. She knows sit, down, shake, come, up, here. I don't think they went to classes. Gracie is okay on leash. She is disciplined by ignoring the negative, reward the positive. She would not react if a food bowl or rawhide were taken away from her, it would be no big deal. Gracie has no issues or behaviors that a foster home or adoptive home would need to be aware of. She has never seen a cat, so not sure how she would react. She is up to date on vaccinations as of 08/2013 and up to date on heart worm prevention. She is going to be SOO easy as a foster, she will not be in foster care long. She is sweet, sweet, sweet! She would be a great 1st Foster for someone, or someone whose spouse isn't all on board because of potential barking, peeing, etc. Thunder makes her skittish, not totally freaked out, just worried and aware. No health issues, she had mange when she first came to these owners, but nothing since.
