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.

This is a 5 year old unaltered small sized flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. This boy is very calm. He may be a little scared from the situation of being in the shelter. He is super sweet and gave small kisses. This boy is a big leaner. He did well with my 2 and 4 yr olds. He gently laid his head in my 2 yr old's lap. Several dogs walked by when he was on leash and he didn't even pay them any attention. He ignored all the dogs in adjacent kennels. This boy didn't show any commands. He didn't pull on the leash. We were unable to cat test. He is gray in the face, but his teeth were fairly clean. He has a small skin tag on back leg. This boy is heart worm negative per the shelter and he is up to date on his vaccinations. His eyes are blood shot. He is super calm, sweet little guy. I can imagine him in a older person's house.

**Update 8/17: This girl was adopted from the shelter and returned as the adopter stated she does not get along with other animals. No further details were given, so we do not know what behaviors were exhibited or if intros were done.** This is a 4 to 6 year old medium sized white female with natural ears and a docked tail. We are unsure if she is deaf. Oh, what a sweet tator tot she is! She was shaking when I first started the eval but at the end she was doing the boxer "lean". She was not interested in any of the toys or treats that I offered her. She loved attention, did not want to go back into the kennel (but do you blame her?) She was calm, I think she would love the attention of kids. She was not phased by the other dogs in the area. When we would return to the kennel, she put on the brakes and seemed a little scared of the first dog in the aisle that was barking like crazy. She did not show that she knows any commands. The shelter said she is in heat. She is really dirty (my black slacks were covered in dust/dirt) and could use a good bath. She may have some flea bites on her lower legs. She obviously has had puppies at least once. I could not confirm if she was deaf; I went back a second time with my husband and when we thought she was deaf she would do something that seemed to prove otherwise. She is SUPER sweet and calm. She might be older that my guess of 4-6 but did not see any grey on her muzzle. She seems to be a laid back lady looking for a new home!

Other Info: ***URGENT NEEDS MEDICAL ATTENTION***

This is a 2ish year old neutered medium sized fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is very calm and not hyper at all. He is very sweet and has not even barked yet. He gets along with the 8 other dogs at the shelter. He is fine out loose with them and eats with the others with no problems. He is crate trained. I showed him his crate one time and now he goes right in. It seems like he may be deaf. He had no response when he first arrived to the barking dogs and did not even look at them. He does not turn and look when I'm right behind him talking like most dogs would. The finder said they would call out to him when he chased one of their horses and he totally ignored them. So I have been using hand signs when giving commands. He minds very well and is very smart. His leash walking is very good. He does not jump up on you. The shelter has a 25 lb cat. He does not bother him at all. He is in poor health. He is emaciated and today, 8/26, he is shaking, won't drink water and is barely standing. He has small cut near his left back leg that looks like he got caught by some barbed wire. His left eye has yellow stuff in it. He is in a small rural shelter with limited resources and needs rescue immediately. Update 8/26 evening: Shelter states he is still weak and still needs medical but he's feeling better, eating and drinking. We still need to get him out.

Other Info: Angelo is a 6 year old medium sized neutered white male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. Angelo is really sweet. He was very happy and pottied outside. He was very kissy and hopped up on the bench to say hi and give kisses. He trotted around the yard and barked/raced to the fence when a guy went out with some trash. Probably best with kids over 10 as he was jumpy (he was happy to have visitors). He came in with his "brother" (BIN 16371) and got along well with him in the play yard. They were the only two in the play yard, but neither seemed fazed by the shelter noise. No opportunity to go past other dogs in the shelter. Angelo knew off and sit, but was too excited to do anything else but say hi. No opportunity to leash test. His owners either crated him or left him in the backyard. Unknown how much interaction he had with them. Unable to cat test. Angelo didn't have any lumps or bumps. Heart worm status is unknown (shelter doesn't test for it), but since shelter worker told me he was mostly an outside dog and had not had other vaccinations, Angelo is likely heart worm positive. He has clear eyes and clean ears. His teeth had some plaque (his age is listed at 6 years, owner had since he was a puppy). His toenails were a little long. Shelter worker had recently bathed Angelo and his brother - they were stinky but had no fleas or ticks. He was an owner surrendered to shelter because of marriage/relationship split.

Other Info: Titus is a 10ish year old large sized neutered fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. Titus is friendly and big. He was happy to say hello to us and pottied outside a few times. He enjoyed stretching his legs in the visiting yard and hopped up on the bench a few times to give me kisses. He was alert and galloped around the yard. He barked at a person who came out of the building and ran over to that side of the fence. It was more an alert action than anything else. I think he'd be good with kids older than 12 because he is large (about 70 lbs) and in good shape. I think he knows his size because he was careful jumping up to say Hi. He came in with his "brother" (BIN 16372) and got along well with him in the play yard. They were the only two in the play yard, but neither seemed fazed by the shelter noise. Titus knew off and sit, but was too excited to do anything else but say Hi. No opportunity to leash test. His owners either crated him or left him in the backyard. Unknown how much interaction he had with them. Unable to cat test. Heart worm status unknown (shelter doesn't test for it), but since shelter worker told me he was mostly an outside dog and had not had other vaccinations, Titus is likely heartworm positive. He has clear eyes and clean ears. His teeth had some plaque (his age is listed at 7 years, owner had since he was a puppy). He is very frosted on his face and back (stress of living?) He had one small bump on his right side, a 3mm lump on his upper right flank and a small growth on the inside of his left back leg. His toenails were kind of long. Owner surrendered to shelter because of marriage/relationship split.

Other Info: Frida is a 2.5 year old spayed medium sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Young Frida was happy to make a new friend! She was delighted to snuggle, give kisses and play with toys. She was polite and waited until invited up on my lap to get more loving. She was curious to look at each person that passed the evaluation room and gave each her best wiggle. Even though she is young, she seems well behaved and would likely do well with children. Those with toddler or younger would need to supervise the activity since she could knock them over while being playful. She seemed non-reactive when walking past the other kennels. Miss Frida showed me several skills! She knew sit, shake and down. She briefly sat on her haunches which was absolutely adorable. She rolled over for belly scratches and brought me a toy to toss! She is Miss personality! No cat test available. This young lady is ready to go home with you; she is heart worm negative per the shelter, spayed, and overall very healthy. She has a very nice coat, a great black mask, pretty expressive ears and a cute little nubby. No lumps, bumps or missing hair. It appears she has had no puppies either!!! Miss Frida was microchipped by her first owner but was given away and now these people do not have time for her either. The shelter never received any response to the microchip records. This young female is pure sweetness, healthy, well behaved and needing a home that is willing to make a commitment. Please help her find someone that will cherish her forever; let's make the 3rd time a charm!

Other Info: Maggie Mae is a 5 year old medium sized spayed flashy brindle female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because her owner is in need of back surgery and feels he will not be able to give her the care she needs afterwards. She is free to roam the home when owner is home and away. She even has her own chair. She was awesome with me, very friendly from the moment we met. There were children at the park and she wanted to play. She was not jumpy and listened to her owner's commands to stay. She is house and crate trained, she is used to a regular wire crate. She does fine with bathing, but does not like her nails trimmed. She pulls away when you are trying to trim her nails. She has a large yard and plays with the other dogs on the property. She also goes for walks and has a harness. She walks very well on the leash. She is very calm and plays very gently. She is not possessive with toys that the evaluator saw. She currently eats Alpo dry beef flavor food. Maggie Mae was home trained and knows sit and stay, no & down. She is very well behaved. She is disciplined using verbal correction. I brought a bag of cookies with me and sat it in front of her. She started to get into the bag and the owner said no, not until given to you and she sat down and waited until I gave her one. She had no reaction to me picking the bag up. She has no behaviors a foster home or adopter would need to be aware of. She is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. Her teeth were very clean and she didn't mind me poking and picking at her. She was very loving. She has no known illness or injuries. There is nothing that makes her worried or makes her act differently than normal. She needs to be placed ASAP as her owner is needing surgery and she will be placed at the local Humane Society if we can not help.

Other Info: Duchess is a 5 year old average sized spayed fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because the family that owned this boxer moved out of the country and couldn't take Duchess.

She gets attached quickly. She is house and crate trained. She is very well behaved and loving for bathing and grooming. She is great for nail trims.

It is unknown how she would react to someone taking a food bowl or rawhide from her. Duchess is a wonderful girl. She is very smart and loves kids. The only issue with Duchess is that she doesn't like any other animals including horses and cows. She absolutely must be an only animal. She is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention.

Other Info: Teebo is a 6 year old large neutered fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He weighs about 75-80 pounds. He is being surrendered because his owners do not have enough time for him. He has the run of the house downstairs. He has never been crated. He is good with both kids, other dogs, and cats. He did bark and run to the door when I arrived, but when the door opened, he had the typical boxer wiggle butt. He is house trained. Owner states he loves getting bathed. His nails were very overgrown so not sure when last they were trimmed. Not sure how he behaves for nail trims. The yard is very small, with a large pond so not much of a yard at all. Husband states he walks him for exercise. You can tell he is lacking attention as he really wanted to be loved on. He was a little rambunctious but I think it's because of the lack of exercise. He is not possessive with toys. He eats dry, Costco brand food (in a red bag). The owner trained him at home. I tried to get him to sit but he wouldn't listen to me, but did sit when the owner told him to. He walks well on a leash. He walks with a collar and leash, no harness. He is disciplined using verbal corrections, he seemed to listen well to the owner. He would be fine if someone tried to take a rawhide or food bowl from him, no aggression at all. His size makes him a little intimidating, so I asked how he was around small children and the owner said fine. They have nieces/nephews that come over and it's never been a problem. He is not up to date on vaccinations and is not currently on heart worm prevention. Teebo seems like a very laid back boxer boy, he did get a little jumpy, but once I had been there a while, he just laid on the floor. Nothing really makes him act anxious or different than normal except the owner said he doesn't like to be in the yard by himself. No illnesses or inuries the owner is aware of, he appeared to be in good health.

Other Info: Eddie is a 16 month old medium sized neutered flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He weighs 55 pounds. Eddie is being surrendered due to an autoimmune illness and his destructive behavior. Eddie and Bella, his 9 year old boxer friend, are kept outdoors. They have a space in the garage that is accessed by a dog door. They have a bed that they like to share. During the summer months, Eddie and his boxer friend are given a fan. During the winter months, they have a heater. Beyond that, they have free access to the very large and beautiful yard and patio area with pool, and a ledge built in the shallow end for pool lounging. The backyard is beautiful and large. We did discuss training them to a crate and bringing them inside the home and the temperature controlled environment. Owner is concerned that he has been so destructive outdoors that she worries what might happen if she brings them inside. I let her know that he is a puppy and he is bored when you're not home or sleeping. They do stay outside with the dogs much of the time that they are at home. When they are away at work (3 days a week) or asleep, Eddie wreaks havoc. Eddie is darling. He is good with the grand childen. He did not jump on the volunteer evaluating, not once. He loves attention. Eddie seemed to be quite well behaved. He stayed near us during our very long visit. He played with some toys the owner brought out. He lounged on his ledge in the pool when he got warm. I think he is a delight. Eddie is not house trained because he's never been kept inside. Eddie is not crate trained either. The owner always thought crating was mean. The volunteer and the owners had a long conversation regarding the benefits of crating. The boxers get bathed outside, with the hose, and they behave just fine. They do not get their nails trimmed, as it is not needed. They run their nails down on the very large patio and drive. Eddie has quite a large backyard and patio area that he runs for exercise. He is also taken on walks around his lakeside neighborhood and does very well on the lead. I would say Eddie is quite calm for his age, likely due to his illness. I did see him run the fence line some when something caught his attention. After we went inside, we could hear Eddie and Bella playing and mouth jousting. All in all, he seemed normal, for a young dog from a bad breeder who is turning out puppies with autoimmune illnesses. Eddie is currently eating Beneful low fat. The Vet recommended that the owner buy a food with the lowest fat. Eddie is not possessive of his toys. Eddie was trained at home and he does mind commands. He knows sit, come, and some other basic training. He does not jump. He is very well mannered. Eddie is disciplined using verbal correction. Owner says he is extremely destructive. The volunteer feels he is bored when left alone and that is why he exhibits this behavior. The volunteers feels that Eddie needs to be crated when no one is home and needs appropriate interaction and stimulation for a young boxer. Eddie is up to date on his vaccinations and currently takes Tri-Heart+ for heart worm prevention. The auto immune disease causes him to become very rigid and tight faced. He gets a high fever (as high as 108). The owner has some chewables the vet gave them that help. He moves very slow and looks like he is in pain and the vet said because he is. The vet said he will not have a normal life span, but is unable to say how long. It is kind of weather/storm driven. When a front comes in he is his worst.

(They watched him being dumped.) :( The family does not have an adequate fence to keep him in. He is house and crate trained. Scout is kenneled most of the time, in a plastic crate. The family works long hours. Scout is good with adults, new people, and kids of all ages. Unsure how he is with baths or nail trims. The family has not had him groomed or bathed. He does not get to exercise often due to owners work hours. He also runs off if not on leash. He has an average energy level. The kids play with him every now and then. He is gentle with them. He eats Blue Buffalo dry food. I do not think he has any training. He is good on a leash. Since he is deaf they use physical correction..not in a harmful way though. They said he will dig at his pen fence if he wants out. He has run off twice. He was not jumpy, he only got on me twice for a hug. No vaccinations or HWP. He has a few scrapes, but she said he has run off a few times. Could be from barbed wire. Scout is a very sweet, gentle boy. He is a good size, he seems healthy. Looks like he eats well.

Other Info: Revis is a medium sized 9 year old neutered male brindle Boxer with natural ears and long tail. Owners have a new baby and they don't feel like they can trust him after an incident when their 4 year old was left unsupervised with him. He's house trained and they don't use a crate. He's free to roam the house unless they can't supervise him and then he is either put in another room or outside. Revis is pretty spunky for a 9 year old. If not for his grey face you'd think he was still a puppy. He's full of boxer energy. He's great with the family's 7 year old daughter and he was fine with our young daughter who went on the evaluation as well. They said he's fine with baths, unknown nail trims. For exercise he plays in the backyard. I was able to take his ball away from him numerous times. The family's young daughter was able to take his ball away from him without any issues. He does the typical play growl that boxers make when playing tug o war. He's doesn't do the drop it command very well. Revis knows basic commands. Sit, stay, down. They said he's fine on walks. Owners use verbal correction. Owners state he is current on vaccinations and on HWP. I think Revis would be a fairly easy Foster. The family said he's always been fine at the dog park although he tries to be the alpha for the first few minutes that he's there. I didn't notice him having any issues with children although I'd suggest he be supervised if he's with children under 5 or ones that aren't dog savvy. He has no known health problems.

Other Info: Mia is a 6 year old medium sized unaltered flashy fawn female Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. Owners are surrendering her because she recently Mia bit their 2 yr old nephew. Mia was napping and the boy sat/fell on her and she reacted. They indicated that he is very rough with the dogs and can be mean to them (pulling hair, hitting). In the beginning when the boy would bother Mia she would initially growl to warn, then there were a few nipping instances. This last time she did break the skin. Around the same time, Mia has began fighting with the other female boxer in the house, so now they are having to keep them separated full-time as well. The owner watches her nephew M-F for about 12 hrs a day. This means Mia is crated inside or kept outside while he is there and then kept separated from the other female when he is gone. Before the incident with nephew and the fighting with the other female boxer she was kept inside free to roam. She is great with adults and older children. The owner has had Mia since she was a puppy and she was absolutely fine with her own 3 kids and other children that visited the home until now. I would recommend kids over 10 years old just to be safe. She also lives with a small, male dog (Shih Tzu?) and does fine with him. Other than that she is not socialized with dogs (no walks, dog parks, etc) She is both house and crate trained. Can be crated 8-12 hours in a wire crate. She does okay with baths and nail trims. For exercise Mia could play in the back yard. Very calm for a boxer. No jumping at all. She would come over for pets while we were talking and rolled over to have her tummy rubbed. I didn't see any play while I was there. Owners said she's always been very mellow and even a little timid. She is free fed dry Ol Roy. No formal training. Would sit for a treat, but that's about it. They rarely walk her, but say she's ok on a leash and doesn't pull too much. Verbal correction is really all that's needed. If you raise your voice she will hide. Owners say she is pretty sensitive. No toy or food aggression. The 2 female boxers were feed side by side for 5+ years with no incidences. She just had her annual shots and said she was healthy. However, she is not on Heartworm prevention. She is shedding quite a bit and needs a pawdicure. Mia is a beautiful boxer who is calm and gentle. She seemed very subdued. I believe she would be a great boxer for a family with older children who know how to properly interact with a dog.

Other Info: Lettie is a 7 to 8 year old unaltered small white female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Owner is surrendering Lettie because she is an escape artist and she has some medical issues that the owner can not afford to treat. Lettie is crated when owner is away from the home. She is left free to roam when they are home. She is very good with adults and kids. She is house trained, but will have accidents on occasion. She is crate trained and can go up to 10 hours. She is used to an extra large crate. She likes bath time. It is unknown how she does for nail trims. She gets daily exercise, she plays in the yard for up to 3 hours a day. She is very active and really enjoys interacting with people. Lettie is not possessive with toys. She currently eats dry dog food, unknown brand and type. She has no training. She is not the best with leash walking, she needs training and someone to show her what to do. She is disciplined using verbal correction. She would have no reaction if someone took her food bowl or a rawhide from her. She knows how to share and is fine doing it. Things that an adopter or foster home would need to be aware of is she barks to come in when she is outside by herself and jumps up on people. She is up to date on vaccinations, she had them sometime in 2016 and is up to date on heart worm prevention, last dose given June 2016, but we have not received any vet records to substantiate this. Lettie needs room to run and will escape the yard if left alone. There is nothing that makes Lettie act worried or different than usual. She is not hyper, she is a very mellow dog. She has a cyst on her back left leg and she occasionally walks sideways.

Other Info: Chopper is a 7 year old small neutered flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. It was discovered a few years ago that daughter was very allergic to Chopper and this family has tried various approaches to keep the dogs because these are very loved pets. However, the only thing that works is to keep the dogs out of the house. This means the dogs are kept in a fenced area -- weather permitting -- with a shelter during the day, and crated in a room at night. They dogs are very unhappy and the neighbors complain about barking. In recent months the owner was laid off and now has a new job requiring travel, which only makes managing time outside more difficult. Chopper is kept in a 1/2 acre fenced area with shelter outside all days when the weather is agreeable. Otherwise he is in a crate inside that he shares with his fur sister. Chopper is good with kids and all people. He is house trained and crate trained, he can go up to 10 hours at a time. It is unknown how he is for bathing or grooming. He never needs nail trims, so it is unknown how he is for them. Chopper runs in his fenced area all day with other boxer Gretchen for exercise. He runs the fence and likes to bark at neighbors. For this reason, Chopper wears a bark collar that shocks him if he continues to bark after the collar emits a warning click. Chopper has great energy. He was very excited because we were visiting. He is not possessive with toys. He eats Kirklands Chicken & Rice, 2 cups a day at singular evening feeding. Chopper went to puppy class. He knows sit and "Box" (which means go to your crate) Pulls a little on the leash per the owner. He is disciplined using verbal correction. Chopper is a sweet submissive dog; likes other dogs and kids. Don't know about cats. He is not up to date on vaccinations and is not current on heart worm prevention. Chopper's eyes were red as if he has an infection or an allergy. It's not cherry eye. Owner said Chopper's ears have hematomas and they would heal by themselves. So Chopper is reported to shake his head alot. (itches?) However, last vet visit was over a year ago and he still has them. Chopper has anxiety if he is alone. He is fine if he has another dog as a companion.

Other Info: Layla is a spayed medium sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is housetrained. Layla's last vaccination was in 2015 and she is not current on heart worm prevention. Layla is being surrendered because the owner has a mix male that instigates arguments with Layla. There is also a new baby in the home and the owner feels this situation is dangerous for the child to be around. During the day, Layla is sometimes crated while inside. At night, she is crated for bed time. The current owners also keep her in her crate over 8 hours while they are at work. She is currently crated in a metal crate. Layla is very afraid and un-socialized. She exhibits extreme fear around adult men. A man and a 10yr old child were present with me for evaluation; Layla did not lunge or bite and has no history of that behavior but you could she that she was fearful. Once we sat and let her calm, She came to trust and let everyone interact with her. She took to the child quickly with all wags. SLOW intro's with adult men needed. I felt no danger, no aggression, just timid and alert. Layla is very sweet in nature. The owners have taken her in for nail to be trimmed twice and they say that the concrete keeps them trim. She gets baths at home and does well. The owner's time is limited and have walked her on occasion. Layla is free to roam in backyard to get her exercise. Layla was not focused with toys or play, but in her natural environment she is known to play well with others. She does enjoy toys and does not show any signs of aggression or possessiveness with her toys. Caution needs to be taken around other dominant males. Layla is energetic and has the capability of being very playful. She's in extremely good shape physically. Layla currently eats Iams dry dog food. Layla sits on command but has not had any other training. Layla does poorly on the leash. The current owners use verbal correction for discipline. She does not have any reaction towards adults or children removing toys or getting close to her food bowl. She has no problems eating with other animals at the same bowl, but - dominant males or females that display as attention hogs can easily start an argument. Layla displays attention issues with petting others and needs focus. Layla exhibits a very large prey drive. She will kill cats on contact. **NO CATS** Layla runs across street to meet other animals walking if she is loose. She does not display aggression towards strange dogs, she has friends in the neighborhood. Layla is a digger. Layla can easily jump a 6.5ft fence. When Layla gets free she will return and sit by the garage door. Layla has no direction and no training. Once she has been taught boundaries and becomes more socialized, she is a sweetheart. She wants and needs to know love.
