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 TIME AT THE SHELTER**

This is a 1 year old unaltered medium sized white female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. This girl is very excitable but she's also been living in a kennel 23.5 hours a day for a month. She's happy to get out of her kennel and I'm sure after a day or two in a home will turn into a calmer girl. At the moment she likes to jump on you. I probably wouldn't put her with small children until shes been out of the shelter and had some proper exercise. She did great with all the dogs except the 2 aggressive dogs in the shelter; when walking her past every kennel. When they barked and growled at her she barked back. She's been to 2 off site adoption events and did perfect with every dog and person there. She has not been trained. Still very much a puppy. She will pull on leash. There were no cats to test her with. She is thin, came in in heat and only came out about a week ago. No heart worm test has been done. (They don't do them at this shelter). She is a sweetheart. Just needs someone to spend some time with her and teach her basic training and give her exercise.

Other Info: **Update 6/25: Bless must be placed by 7/1.** Bless is a 3 year old spayed medium sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because the family is expecting twins later this year and feel that they won't have enough time to devote to her. Bless is kept inside, free to roam when her her family is home, but crated when they are gone, and has been crated for up to 8 hours, family lives in an apartment and have not had any issues with her barking or making noise when they are gone. She is fine with strangers and new people and dogs as well, she is high energy and it took her a little while to settle down. She is house trained and crate trained, in a wire crate, and is good for at least 8 hours. Likes bath time. No issues, and will usually just lay down for nail trims. Gets exercise daily with walking and likes meeting new people and dogs along the way, husband says she does walk better with the wife and doesn't pull as much. High energy, but gentle. Bless is not possessive with toys. She eats Healthy Advantage dry food, (Hills) mom works at a vet, so that is where they purchase her food. She has had formal training from Canine Advantage in Dallas and will respond to both verbal and hand commands, she did respond to me as well, when I gave her hand signals. She walks okay on the leash, better with mom. She gets time out for discipline, which usually results from her getting into the trash. Doesn't have any reaction if someone were to take toys or food from her. Bless is jumpy, so older kids would be better, but she does live with a young child now and is okay with him, and he was able to get her to sit down, just not for long, she also lives with a cat. She is up to date on vaccinations as of 8/14/2014 and heart worm prevention. Bless really is a very nice dog, and would be a great addition to a family, while she does great in an apartment, her family thinks she would love to have a yard to play in, and run off some energy, especially while playing with her balls or sticks that she enjoys. She is a not a fan of lighting, but if the blinds are closed and she doesn't see it, it's okay. Likes to go for car rides. No injuries or illness, but she may have seasonal alopecia.

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: Update 6/16: Owner is in the process of moving and will likely have house sold before end of next month. Dexter will go the the shelter if he does not have a foster home. Dexter is a an average sized 2 year old classic fawn neutered male with natural ears and docked tail. His owners want surrender him because he is a wild, undisciplined young male and they have concerns about their new baby. Weather permitting, Dexter is kept in the fenced backyard. Otherwise he is crated. Dexter is friendly with kids, dogs of all sizes and strangers. When we were meeting him, however, I bent down to say hello and that very second his Mom walked in holding the new baby and Dexter growled and did a small lunge in my direction. I backed up and he immediately returned to his friendly self and everyone (owners included) was surprised. I said that it seemed to happen just as Mom came in with the baby. So Mom left the room with the baby and Dexter was immediately bouncy and friendly. He is house and wire crated trained. He knows how to use a doggie door and will scratch at door if doggie door closed. He is well behaved during bathing but will try and lick the soap on his body so his owner keeps a hand under Dexter's chin and its all good. The nails are short but they have never trimmed them. This dog is allowed to run in fenced school yard across the street a few times a week and also does a lot of boxer burns in the yard. Also visits in-laws and runs on their acre property quite regularly. This is a high energy adolescent boxer boy. He plays well with other dogs. The six year old skin kid plays very roughly with him (karate chops & kicks) and he responds very well to the child. No toys for the dog. He eats Purina Pedigree Pro Plan, about 4 cups a day. Free feeds. Typically not hungry in morning but finishes bowl off while owners are cooking dinner and then eats a second bowl later in the evening. Owners keep bowl full at all times. This dog has never received training. Only command he knows is sit. Owner says he pulls on a leash. (it was raining so we couldn't walk him) The owner uses a shock collar to control the dog. Owner states dog doesn't react if bowl is taken from him while eating or if child touches his food while he is eating. Very, very jumpy dog who has not experienced a human pack leader. I think he would do very well with another dog to play with and an owner willing to take him to obedience classes. His teeth are white and clean, he is not a licky dog (which I like) but very affectionate and loves to snuggle. Last vaccs and HWP were May 2014. Great body weight, very short hair. Nice looking and affectionate dog. Sleeps on couch in the family room. Healthy dog. He had a fracture at around 7 months of age of left rear tibia. Surgery included metal banding around his bone but no growth plates impacted and fully recovered with no weakness or limp.

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: 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.

He is kept outside during the day and he is inside during the night. He is good with adults and kids. It took him a little while to warm up to me. Wesson is house and crate trained. During bath time he attempts to get out of the tub and he does fine during nail trimming. He doesn’t get much exercise, and he’s very energetic. He is not possessive with toys. He eats Victor for high energy dogs. He knows the sit command! He needs a little work on his leash walking antics as he likes to take control. The owner uses verbal correction to discipline him.

Other Info: Lulu is a 1.5 to 2 year old unaltered fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. Current owner found her roaming the streets and tried to locate her family. They have posted on Facebook pages and other websites with no success. They've had her for 4 months, but they can't keep her because she has gotten into fights with their much larger male Australian Shepherd/Husky mix. They are allowed to play and spend some time together from time to time, but they have to be separated because they've engaged into fights that are hard to break up. One fight landed Lulu at the vet with a puncture wound between her eyes. Current owner is keeping them mostly separated because they have a 9 year old son and they are afraid that a much more serious fight might erupt. When the owner is home, Lulu is free to roam the house. She is crated when left home alone as she will chew and destroy pillows. Lulu is a little shy at first, but she warms up quickly. She loves all people, young and old. She currently lives with a 9 year old boy and she does fine. She is quite jumpy and she would knock a small child over. Lulu is very sweet and gives gentle kisses to everyone. She is house trained, with accidents if scared or if it's too cold outside. She is crate trained, metal medium size crate, she can stay all day while owner is at work. She tolerates bath time. She needs to be placed in the tub, and she will stay very still. Unknown how she behaves for nail trims. She is walked on a leash and she goes outside in the backyard. She does not try to escape and even when she goes out the front door, she always comes back. Very energetic, typical young boxer energy. She didn't stay still the entire time I was there :) She loves to play tug of war with the other dog in the house (when allowed in the same room). If the other dog is laying down somewhere, Lulu will get a toy and drop it on him to get him to play. She is not possessive with toys She eats dry food. The other dog in the house is food aggressive, so they are fed separate. Lulu doesn't seem to be food aggressive and she will wait for the command before she starts to eat. She knows sit, shake, crate. She responds well to other commands like down, no, etc. She looks very eager to please, but she still needs work when it comes to jumping up on people. She walks very well and does not need a harness. She stays close and does not pull. When it comes to discipline, she goes to the kennel. Sometimes they find her in her kennel before they find the mess :) If she chews something, she is put in the kennel, and whatever she chewed is placed right outside the kennel door. She is not disciplined very often, but she has been caught climbing on the kitchen table for food. She is not food aggressive or possessive of toys. Things can be taken away from her with no reaction. The only issue has been that when the other dog attacks her, she doesn't back down and they have to be physically separated. No knowledge on vaccination status. Current owner hasn't vaccinated her. Not current on heart worm prevention. Lulu is very sweet and pretty small and she deserves a home without a giant dog that attacks her. Her current family is trying to move and they would like to see her placed in a foster home prior to them moving. If she doesn't have a spot in the next few weeks, they will have to drop her off at a shelter, and they said they would try to find a no kill shelter. They love her and want the best for her. She tinkles a little bit when she gets scared (sudden movements or loud noises) Current owner stated that she is allergic to Neosporin. She used it on the puncture wound and it gave her a rash all over. She also stated that Lulu used to have white circular spots all over, but they're all gone (the last one is almost invisible). When she took her to the vet, the vet stated she's in good health.

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. She didn't sit still the entire time I was there. She ran from person to person, to the window and let the child play with her. She has pent up energy from not being able to exercise. She did jump up some and enjoyed being petted and gave a few kisses. Petunia is possessive with her toys, she is NOT dog friendly. She doesn't mind sharing her toys with humans but meeting dogs has not been successful. She eats inexpensive dry dog food. She does not have training. She attended a few classes at Petsmart but was aggressive with the other dogs. She pulls on the leash when walking and reacts to dogs. The owner does not really have to discipline her, when she does, she uses time outs. Petunia is not food aggressive with humans. You can take her food or toys without bothering her. She jumps on people, does have separation anxiety, is dog aggressive and has an overly high amount of energy due to lack of exercise and mental stimulation. She is not up to date on vaccinations. Early 2013 was her last vet visit and vaccinations. She is not up to date on heart worm prevention, was last tested for heart worms in early 2013 and has not had prevention since then. Petunia was a sweet girl, who like all boxers need a lot of attention and exercise. She needs basic training and doesn't follow commands very well at all. She was amazingly patient with the little boy.... and would do good with kids, but NO OTHER DOGS and need someone willing to exercise and work with her. She does not like thunderstorms or fire works. She does great on boat and car rides. No known illnesses or injuries.

Other Info: Keely is an 8 year old, 55lb spayed, fawn female. She as a docked tail, natural ears and is not deaf. The owner is surrendering Keely because she is overwhelmed having an infant and a toddler. She works 10 hrs a day then has to come home to deal with 2 kids and any mess Keely makes. I feel Keely is destructive due to boredom. She will pooh in the house and get into the garbage, and she is a counter surfer. Keely is free to roam when owner is home. The owner did use a crate at one time but felt guilty, so Keely is ok being in a crate. When owner is away, Keely is free to roam, but access to certain areas is restricted. Keely loves people. She was very energetic with us and had no problem with the attention we were giving her. She was fine with the small children but we saw no interaction from the toddler with Keely as he seemed to ignore her. Keely is house trained, and crate trained. The owner owns a pet hotel and bath and Keely does fine during grooming and getting her nails trimmed. She does not get exercise, hence the destructive boredom. She is very high energy, playful, and very eager for attention and affection. She is not possessive with toys. At the moment she eats Kirkland's but owner did say she's fed her other brands. Keely had puppy classes; everything else was done by the owner. Sit, down and shake were demonstrated to us. She does pull on a leash. For discipline the owner uses verbal correction if any. The owner stated that she would just put Keely outside until she had cleaned any mess made. Per the owner there is no reaction if any rawhides are taken away from her. She did jump on us but it was just for attention. Per the owner she is up to date on vaccinations, and not current on HWP. Keely may have dog aggression issues. Owner states that she fought with another boxer they owned drawing blood. I see a very energetic, loving girl who needs a pack leader.

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.

He weighs about 50 pounds. Rocco belongs to an adult son who has a new job that requires him to travel 3-4 days a week. The son's mom takes care of Rocco when her son is away. She is gone 8 hours a day for her job and does not think he gets enough time and attention he needs. Rocco is kept inside with bedrooms closed off while they are gone from the house.

He is not aggressive towards people, but has not been around other animals to know his behavior. He does chew up things while they are gone and has separation anxiety.

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.
