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.

Penny is a 11 year old spayed medium sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Penny is a sweet senior girl. She was so happy to get out of her kennel. We took her outside and all she wanted was to be petted. She does still have some spunk in her. Unfortunately her elderly owner was no longer able to care for her. He uses a walker and was afraid of tripping over her. He got her when she was just a puppy and was heartbroken that he was no longer able to provide for her. So she's missing her daddy. I think she would be fine with kids. She was not jumpy. She did get a little playful when I crouched down to pet her and look her over. She was very happy for the attention and gave sweet kisses. She did react to the other dogs as we walked by kennels. Shelter thinks she may have lived with other dogs at some point in her life. As the owner has always had boxers. She did not perform any commands. She walked fine on a leash. No pulling. Did not cat test. She has a very large mass on her front knee. She also has several other skin tags and bumps. She is up to date on shots. She recently saw a vet who was not concerned about the lump on her knee and appears to be in good health for age. LBR would likely want to remove the lump if she gets a foster home. Her eyes were not cloudy. She does have some cauliflowering on both ears. Her coat looked great and she is a good weight. She's probably 55-60 pounds. Penny is a very sweet girl that is missing her daddy and needs a place to live out her golden years. Due to her age the shelter is making her rescue only.

Other Info: ***URGENT DUE TO FULL SHELTER***

This is an 8 to 10 year old medium sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. This boxer lady was very sweet. She did not go potty in the yard, just wanted to sniff around. She was very calm and not jumpy at all. She walked well on a leash and seemed to be very excited about going outside. She has a funny gait with her back legs that is likely due to a large elongated tumor on her right rear leg. The tumor is about 3 inches at the base and sticks out of her leg about 3-4 inches! She also has a mass hanging from her top right nipple. It is the size of a large marble. She has 2-4 tiny bumps on her head and a nickel sized raised area on the back of her head. She did not seem interested in coming when called but is not deaf, just more interested in sniffing. She does not know any commands. Her teeth and ears look good. She definitely needs a pawdicure as her toenails are very long and bend to the side. Her coat is filthy and she has a salad plate size patch of what appears to be oil and dirt - maybe from laying under a car? She is very sweet and not jumpy so she would be fine with children. She not react to dogs in kennels as we went outside. We were unable to cat test. She is currently in the contagious area but I saw no signs of runny nose, goopy eyes, coughs or sneezes. She has a microchip and is off hold 7/27.

Other Info: This is a 3 to 4 year old unaltered small white female with cropped ears and a natural tail. She is not deaf. This little girl was terrified in the shelter. Shaking with her tail tucked between her legs. The AC took her out in the hallway but we could not take her outside as she's not available yet. Once she was away from all the barking, she stopped shaking, but she was more interested in trying to get outside than interacting. She did let me touch her, but was too scared to show any Boxer spirit. She is not deaf. When I made a loud sound behind her, she turned her head and looked. Unable to guess on this. She was not jumpy at all and she's small and seemed friendly, so probably okay with kids. Not sure. She was too terrified to try and interact with other dogs. She ignored them for the most part. She is fine on a leash. She would not sit -not sure if it's because she doesn't know sit or if she was too terrified. Unable to cat test. She has one large lump on her side. Her nipples indicate she has had puppies Her front teeth were worn down, as though she'd tried to chew her way out of something. She had a heavy infestation of fleas and needs some groceries. The AC indicated she was found alone in an abandoned apartment. This girl is gorgeous! She is very scared and needs out of the shelter asap when her hold is up on 7/22. Also needs medical attention for her lump.

Other Info: Update 5/17: Her owners were going to put her in the shelter, but couldn't bring themselves to do it. She still needs placement ASAP. Stella is a beautiful approximately 60 pound spayed flashy fawn boxer girl with cropped ears and a docked tail. She is eight years old, but don't let her age fool you. This girl has spunk! She loves to run in the backyard, play with her ball and her frisbee. Once we went inside, she was a calm sweet boxer who just wanted to be petted. She does great and is super friendly with kids and adults. She knows sit and shake and walks well on a leash. She listens to commands and is disciplined using verbal correction. Stella is house trained and crate trained. She is left free to roam in the house when her family is away. She is boarded when her family goes out of town and does well. Stella is not groomed or bathed very often, but does well with the process when she is. She is not possessive with food or toys. She is up to date on her vaccinations. She tested heart worm negative in October 2014, but it is unknown if she is current on heart worm prevention. She has no lumps or bumps and no illnesses or injuries the owner is aware of. Stella has not had a lot of socialization with other dogs and can get protective around them. She might do well with slow intros. She absolutely loves kids. She is very gentle and not jumpy. Stella's family is moving and are reluctant to take her with them to their new home. With three children, they don't feel like they have much time for her. Are you the family that can give Stella the love and attention and confidence she deserves?

Other Info: Delilah is a large sized spayed 3 year old beautiful fawn female Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. She is not deaf. Delilah was very excited to meet us and go outside. She did not jump on us and was excited to have her leash put on. She did great walking on a leash. There was not a lot of room, so she could not take off leash to let her run. She picked a toy from inside to bring out with her. She loves carrying around her stuffed toy with her. I think she'd be fine with kids and bigger dogs. Owner says she is good with other dogs, but not cats. She really loved the older boxer that was in the house with her. I would not put her with small dogs. I was holding a small puppy and I did not feel comfortable putting her down. She was very interested in what I was holding. The owner is surrendering her due to her living situation. She is moving into an apartment and cannot take her with her. Delilah has intestinal problems, potentially boxer colitis. Owner states she has many bowel movements a day. She did have one while we were there. It was loose stool. Owner states she will not have an accident in the house, but she has to be on a specific food and no treats or other food can be given. She is a very proportionate dog, even with her stomach issues. She has pretty white teeth and clean ears. She has 2 small spots behind the front of her legs, from either laying on concrete or in a cage. She seemed to be a very smart girl and would sit on command. I think she'd be easy to train. Heartworm status is negative. She is up to dates on all of her shots. Delilah was a super sweet little Boxer. She will make someone a wonderful companion if they can work with her on her stomach issues. Owner is very sad to be giving her up, but her apartment complex said no.

Other Info: Jazz is a 12 year old large spayed flashy brindle female with cropped ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because her owner and her husband are moving to Oklahoma, to an apartment, and no pets are permitted. He has already moved. She leaves Jazz with her daughter and goes up to Oklahoma on weekends. They took Jazz to her Vet because of the large tumor on her side and because she makes noises (groans, I guess) in her sleep. They thought that maybe it was time to put her down, but the Vet said no, "other than the tumor which does need removed and sent out for pathology, she is healthy. She makes noises because she is overweight." They cannot afford surgery, and since she is healthy otherwise, decided to pursue rescue for Jazz. Jazz free roams when no one is home. She does fine, except they she will sometimes get into the trash or steal a kleenex box and eat the box, not the tissues (this is more if she is mad at being left alone too long), doesn't happen often. Jazz is very sweet. Loves attention. Does not jump. If strangers are outside the house, she will bark. But when people come into the house she is sweet and the typical nosey boxer. She is good with kids. Jazz is left with the owner daughter on weekends, when she goes to Oklahoma. Daughter has 3 boys, ages 8-14, and at any given time there are 3-5 other boys in the house. Jazz is fine with them. They love on her. If they get too noisy, she'll get up and go in another room to get her rest. She is house trained and she is crate trained. They have not crated her in a long time, but she can be crated and does fine, once in. She balks a bit at going in, but is fine once inside. Jazz is 90-95 lbs. Owner's husband used to lift her into the tub for baths, but he is no longer able to do that, so Jazz does not get bathed. She goes to Vet for nail trims and does fine. Jazz really does not get exercise. For the past month or so, she has lived in a small duplex with the owner's mother, as the husband has already moved to Oklahoma to their apartment. The duplex is small and crowded. Not a lot of room for Jazz to move around. The yard is miniscule. Jazz goes out to potty and comes right back inside. There is mostly concrete patio and walk and just a snippet of lawn. When they did live in their home, Jazz had a Boston brother about 3-4 years in age, and the two would play and wrestle and get some exercise that way. Also, when they would walk Jazz, she does okay. Pulls just a bit on leash and walks in and around your feet making things difficult. She has great energy for a 12 year old. Very spry, it seems to me, for a dog her age. She used to enjoy playing with her Boston brother, who has gone one to live with a family on a farm. She is not possessive with toys. Jazz eats dry Pedigree. They trained Jazz themselves, when she was younger. She knew sit, lay down and shake. They've not kept up her training, so don't know if she still knows her commands. We did try to get her to sit, and she did not, but I believe it's because she has some arthritis in her back hips and it hurts to get down and up. Her leash walking behavior is okay, not super. She is disciplined using stern talking. Owner guesses it would not be a problem if someone tried to take a food bowl or rawhide from her. They never tried that. No behaviors that would appear to be an issue, Jazz seems like a lovely senior girl with plenty of life left in her. I would love to see her get a chance at a retirement home where she will know only love and good quality care. Owner did tell me that they used to breed her. All she needs is to have the tumor removed, get on some decent healthy kibble, lose some weight, start supplements for her hips and she'll be a great foster. She seems like a great candidate for our rare adopter who wants to give a senior girl a home. She is due for vaccinations in August. They have not given heart worm prevention, reasoning that she is indoor only. She a very sweet boxer who still seems full of life. Jazz paces and pants when there are thunderstorms. She will try to hide under table or under your feet. She doesn't destroy anything, just wants to be near you for safety. She has a very large tumor on right side. She also has that thing where the gums come up over her small teeth.

Other Info: Crabman is a 2.5 year old unaltered large fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered because his family is busy, both parents work and also have 3 children, and don't have the time that they feel Crabman needs. Free to roam when family is home, but is crated while they are gone, and is okay in his crate for at least 8 hours. I do think he would be best with older kids, maybe 10 and up due to his size, and he does like to jump, in a playful way, but he is a very tall, leggy boy, and just wants to play. I didn't even hear him bark when I rang the doorbell, he only barked when he saw me, then it was a lot of wiggles and a little barking. He is house trained, has had an occasional accident if not let out. He can stay in his crate, a wire crate, for up to 8 hours. Doesn't mind getting a bath. Doesn't mind nail trims. He will get leash walked, when time permits, and he does like to pull, especially with the mom, seems to do better with the dad, as he lets him know that he's in charge, and will shorten the leash a little and he seems to walk better. Typical young energetic boxer, really just wants someone to play with him and get some of his energy burned off. He has never shown any aggression and is not possessive with his toys. He eats Purina dog chow, dry. He has not had any formal training, but will sit and also lay down, just not for long. Could use some training on his leash walking. He is disciplined using verbal correction and is told "go to bed". There have been no issues when taking things away from him, I took his ball and he was very attentive and couldn't wait for me to throw it so we could play. Owner feels that he is needy, mainly because he loves his people and just wants to be with them, he does like to follow them around, but is also happy just being near them to relax as well. No aggressive behavior towards people or other animals. He is not up to date on vaccinations or heart worm prevention (his last heart worm prevention was about 6 months ago). Crabman is a sweet boy, he's just looking for some love and playtime, he is a large Boxer and could even stand to gain a few pounds, needs to work on his jumpiness and leash walking and he would be a great companion. He likes to go for car rides and will jump right in. Doesn't really have any issues with lightning or thunder, but he kids have something that makes a "popping" noise, and he's not fond of the noise, I think its' something similar to fireworks. He is not neutered, because his testicles haven't descended. Has some fly bites on his ears.

Other Info: Macy is a small sized 3-5 years old unaltered fawn female. She has a docked tail and natural ears. The owner is surrendering her due to dog aggression which is mainly with their female boxer but also sometimes with their male boxer. When the owner is away she normally stays outside, away from everyone and everything. In complete segregation, this is both when the owner is home or away. If there is bad weather Macy is put into a crate in the garage. Macy is fine with humans, she may try to jump up but she is easily corrected. She’s a very friendly dog, seems starved for attention and affection. She used to be potty trained but would probably need to be worked on again since she’s being left outside now. The boxer is crate trained and she’s currently being crated 6-8 hours. It is unknown how she does during bathing, grooming or nail trimming. For exercise she just runs in her dog run. The boxer’s energy is mild level. It is unknown if the boxer is possessive with toys as I did not see any. She eats dry dog food. She knows Sit, Shake and Down which were all taught at home. They have taught her how to walk on a leash. For discipline the owner uses verbal correction. I took a ball away from Macy with no problem at all. She is not current on vaccinations or HWP so her HW status is unknown. She was a very gentle dog who needs to be in a home that wants an only pet.

Other Info: Petunia is a 5 year old unaltered fawn female with cropped ears and a docked tail. She is dainty and small. The owners hit hard financial times and lost their house with a yard. They now live in an apartment. They also have another baby on the way and don't have the time to exercise and train and play with Petunia. When the owner is home Petunia can run free in the house. At bedtime she is put in the bathroom with either a baby gate or the door shut. At the old house she was out in the yard during the day and in the bathroom at night. She is not crate trained and has never been. When they are gone she is gated in the bathroom. This boxer has an 18 month old toddler in the house who was poking and pulling and hugging and playing rough with her. She was extremely gentle and patient with him. She is good with kids, was good with me as a stranger, but is not good with other animals, especially dogs. Petunia is house trained, she potties outside but occasionally after doing her business outside, will come inside and pee in the corner. Petunia likes her baths and water. She was easy to handle and did not mind me putting my hands all over her, although she did not sit still, she wasn't bothered by it. It is unknown how she does for nail trims. She does not get exercise at all right now. She gets taken out to do her business and then comes back in. Petunia, also called Tudie...is a very very energetic boxer.

Other Info: Roxie is a 7 year old average sized white spayed female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is surrendered because she does not get along with other dogs. The previous owner had an order dog that Roxie did not get along with. Roxie is kept in the house free to roam when the owner is home or away. She is an excellent dog for a house with no other pets or small children. She does well with small children but constantly wants to lick them in the face which scares some kids.

Other Info: Heidi is a 7 year old spayed small brindle female with natural ears and a docked tail. She weighs about 50 pounds. This is a very sad situation. Heidi was sleeping and their 22 month old son went over to pet his Heidi, he leaned over and landed with his 2 hands on her, which startled her and she bit him in his face; there was 1 small puncture near the top of his nose. It wasn't an aggressive attack; more of a reaction from being woken up unexpectedly. He's fine now. However, it's not something worth risking so they'd like to find her a good home without young children to be safe. She is kept inside always. When they're home she's free to roam the house, she's not allowed on the couch but she would love it if she could. She does enjoy getting in bed with Mom and Dad, and snuggling under the covers. She is fully crate trained, she has a nice comfy bed. She can handle a full work day. Heidi is so well behaved and very welcoming, no jumping or licking. She seems to like all people and until recently was great with their son. Her new home should not have young children. She is house and crate trained (in a wire crate). Heidi hasn't ever gone to a groomer for a hair cut, but she is good for a bath. The owner usually bathes her outside with the hose so she can shake water everywhere without making a huge mess. She also puts Heidi in the tub in the winter, though so she's used to both. She's also good for nail trims. The owner gets her to lay down on her side and trims them without anyone else helping hold her. It does make her nervous getting her nails trimmed but she'll stay there and let you do it if you reassure her. She doesn't like having her ears flushed (who does?!) but she'll let her owner do it without having to have another person help hold her. She doesn't get nervous at the vet and just acts happy to meet new people so the owner thinks she'd do great with a groomer. She gets walks with it's not too hot and lives with another dog; they can play inside or in the back yard for short periods of time. She's calm, she would love to snuggle. Likes to play a little but is a gentle girl. She is also cat friendly. She is not possessive with toys. This girl loves to eat so should not be free fed. She eats Hills Science Diet Healthy Mobility. She knows the basics on training. Heidi pulls a little but can be easily corrected when leash walking. She is disciplined using verbal correction. She would be fine with someone taking a rawhide or food bowl from her, she is not possessive of her things. She's a great girl; just can't be placed with young children. She is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. Heidi is a beautiful, petite girl, healthy weight, great nails, ears and teeth. Her Mom is a Vet so she's very well taken care of. She has always been in their family; they took over her care 4 years ago from a deceased family member. She would be perfect for any home without young children, perfect for a 1st time boxer owner as she's very calm. She lives with a large poodle, owner feels she does well with most dogs with proper intro's. There is a new boston terrior on the other side of their fence that try's to bark at her and she does very well just sniffing the fence. Easily called away. You would never know Heidi is 7, hardly any gray and just overall looks young! She only barks on occasion and when she does, it's very soft so she would be fine in an apartment. I can't express enough how sweet this girl is and gentle! She just wants to be pet, snuggle and eat! A very happy girl! No, she seems very well-balanced; just had the 1 incident with their toddler son when he woke her unexpectedly. She has a mild case of laryngeal paralysis, so she can't do strenuous exercise or she has trouble breathing. She can't go on long walks when it's hot outside. She's totally okay with all of this, she would love to be a couch potato and enjoy lounging around the house. Heidi also has a slight head tilt, doesn't seem to bother her but you can see why she might startle from a touch she's not expecting. Her bark was also affected by this; she has a very raspy quiet bark.

**Update 7/30: Pending pick up by another rescue group or adopter at shelter.** Rocco is a 4 to 5 year old neutered medium sized brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. Initial observations by shelter staff were that he was a grumpy/growly old man, labeled aggressive When he was brought out of the kennel for me to eval he was completely different. He was interested in the treats I had and would jump for them if I held them too high. He was a wiggly and wanted to keep walking away from the kennel. He was very jumpy. I don't think little kids would be a good fit for him right now. Maybe teenagers. If a toddler had food at his level, he would probably show no hesitation in taking it from them. Rocco seemed to be a reactive dog. Two dogs across from him were pretty much ignoring him (had their backs to him). He sniffed them and turned away. The two dogs on either side of him were barking loudly and jumping at the gate. Rocco lunged and jumped up on the gate at these dogs. He never barked but the lunging, jumping and going nose to nose was in an aggressive manner. Rocco would sit and down on command. He pulled on the leash quite a bit. No cat test available. Heart worm status is negative per shelter test. He is skinny. His ears looked pretty clean. Teeth were decent. Not missing any hair and did not see or feel any bumps. Coat looks good other than being dirty. Rocco is microchipped but the shelter has been unable to make contact with owners. He was initially labeled aggressive but I saw absolutely no aggression towards people while I was there. The ACO and I think it may be a barrier aggression and the shelter environment. Something in between him and the other dog/person he does not like. I asked him to sit with verbal command, hand signal, and both together. He knew what I was asking each time. Then I tried a sit with a down. He was eager for the treat. After a couple of times repeating sit/down he would do it before I even asked. I think he is a very smart, quick learner. He absolutely did not want to go back into the kennel and tried to slip out several times. We were able to encourage him with treats.
