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: ***SUPER URGENT RESCUE ONLY EU IMMINENT***

What a sweet sweet old boy he is. Happy and wiggly and LOVES to lean for pets and chin scratches and gets super excited when he sees the leash. Hes on the average to large size and Id put him between 6 & 7. He is unneutered and has a few lumps and bumps that will need to be looked at as well as a little thinning hair on both back legs. Ignored the other dogs walking down the kennels. Didnt get a good cat test. This shelter does not adopt out Boxers to the public so he is rescue only.

Other Info: ***Update 12/18: Owner says he is running out of time to wait for a foster home***Tyr is an 8 year old medium sized (but overweight) flashy fawn spayed female with natural ears and docked tail. Her owners are surrendering her due to moving and financial hardships. She is kept in a building near the residence. She is calm, low key and gentle so I believe she will be fine with kids. The owner says she is fine with adults and kids. She is house trained. She is not crate trained. Not sure how she does with grooming. She does need to be groomed and needs a nail trim. For exercise she gets four walks a day and plays daily with a large mixed breed fur cousin that lives in the same building with her. She plays well. This dog acts 8 to 10 years of age in demeanor. She has no gray and is beautiful. Not toy possessive. Very gently and unfazed by anything. She eats dry food and gets treats. She is very treat motivated. She was trained at home. She is very well trained. (sit, down) She knows a couple of more complex commands. She sits like a person with her dad. She is excellent on a leash. She is disciplined verbally if needed or the behavior is ignored. She is gentle if you take anything of high value away from her according to the family. She is a mellow dog who gently and briefly barks at any passerby. No other behavior merits mention. She did not want to be more than an inch from her dad and grand dad while I was there and although I received a few Boxer kisses, she cuddled with her owners the whole time. She might struggle with being separated from them. The bond is obvious. She has not seen a vet in years. The family is ambivalent about surrendering her. They are actively seeking other solutions and searching for low cost vetting. Everyone cried the whole time I was there, especially the 90 year old completely coherent and ambulatory grandpa.

Other Info: Roxie is a 9 year old spayed average sized fawn female with natural ears and docked tail. The owner is giving Roxie up because she is going through a divorce and Roxie was her husband's dog and with 3 other pets she can't afford nor handle that many pets. Roxie is always left inside to roam, she is use to having a doggy door to go outside to play and go potty. She sleeps inside free to roam and is free to roam while she is gone. Roxie was good with adults and strangers. She is also good with kids according to the owner, there use to be a day care at her house with kids ranging from 18 months to 4 years and they were always all over Roxie and she had no problem. She also was outside running free while we were there and met the neighbor for the first time and the neighbors dogs and had no problem. Roxie is house trained. She has never used a crate nor knows what it is. Owner stated that Roxie was great with bathing and grooming. She said that Roxie could go out on the boat to the lake with them and she would swim and have no problem. Owner stated she had never trimmed her nails herself, her husband had always taken her somewhere. Roxie plays in the yard when she goes out, she goes on walks and loves them. Roxie is a general boxer energy level, she doesn't act her age for being 9. Had a normal boxer level of energy. No aggression towards toys nor people. Roxie eats about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of Purina Benefeld twice a day. Owner stated Roxie had training at about 18 months old with a trainer. She knows sit, down, go to your room, outside, and catch. She is a very obedient dog that wants nothing more than to cuddle or be loved on. She walked fine on a leash and also did wonderful and didn't run away off the leash. Normally verbal correction is used to correct Roxie. Roxie is bone aggressive. We didn't test this out, however that is what the owner said. Only aggression towards bones nothing else. Owner stated Roxie might have slight separation anxiety because when they are upstairs and Roxie is down stairs she will whine a little. She is current on vaccinations as of 10/28/14 and up to date on heart worm prevention per owner. Roxie is a sweet boxer who wants nothing more than to be cuddled and love. She has energy and likes to play but also gets that she needs to settle down. She was very obedient and didn't mind meeting new people nor other dogs at all. Don't let her ago hold you back, she is a great boxer that would make a great fit for a potential AA! Roxie has a problem with thunderstorms and will cry and pace when there are storms. Roxie also is currently slightly unsettled because of all the moving and being left alone without an owner for a week because the husband left them there and didn't tell the wife. Roxie didn't have any health concerns, however she does have 2 small tumors (owner said they were benign and had them tested a few years ago, just never removed). They said Roxie recently went to the vet and got all her shots and a heartworm pill.

Other Info: Abby is a 4.5 year old unaltered small fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because Abby and the female chihuahua in the house don't get along, owner believes the chihuahua is only protecting her puppies and initiates any disagreements and Abby is only retaliating. Abby has never started anything with the chihuahua. Abby sometimes will get under foot of the lady of the home, who is disabled and has ended up on the floor a few times. She is free to roam the home when owner is gone, without any problems, she is crated trained and does fine in there for up to 8-9 hours, but hasn't spent much time in her crate for a long time. Abby loves kids even the 9 month old baby who she sniffs or gives kisses to when she has the chance, she is not jumpy, so would do well with small kids, and she is tiny for a boxer as well. She barked when I arrived, but soon started to kidney bean and came over for attention as soon as I sat down. She is house trained, and crate trained, in a plastic crate, good for up to 9 hours. She does well for baths, and owner hasn't trimmed her nails for a long time, the most recent time they were trimmed was at the vet, but Abby seems to keep them worn down on her own. She does okay, but it's been a while since owner has trimmed them. She plays in the backyard for exercise and love to play with tennis balls, and is said to wake well on a leash, but doesn't go for walks very often. She has a normal boxer play style and energy level. Abby does get possessive with her toys and food, but only with the mother chihuahua. She eats Pedigree dog food. Has not had any formal training, but will sit, shake, down, stay and will speak, especially for a treat. She is good walking on a leash, no pulling, stays by your side. She really doesn't need any correction, but if she does it is verbal, or is shown the fly swatter. She doesn't like when the momma chihuahua gets near her food or toys and will give a growl and the chihuahua will then leave. Owner stated that she will sometimes growl if he gets to close while she is eating. doesn't do much if any jumping, but will get excited and dance around, and does a good kidney bean. There is no aggression towards any other dogs in the home,and she has no problems with the puppies, there are a total of 5 other dogs in the home, the issues with the chihuahua have only started since the puppies a arrived a few months ago. Not UTD on vaccinations, only rabies, which is good till Jan. 2015. Not UTD on hear worm prevention, has had some in the past, just not recently. Abby is a very sweet and somewhat laid back girl for a boxer her age. She has been in her current home for a while and the issues with the chihuahua have only started since the puppies have arrived, there were no issues before this, and owner states that the chihuahua is always the one who starts something and he feels that Abby is just defending herself. She also lives with a cat and doesn't pay any attention to it. She would be a great addition for some lucky family. Likes to go for car rides and she is not a fan of fireworks, but doesn't seem to be bothered by thunderstorms or small kids, who make sudden or loud noises. Abby has scars on her back from previous injury, believed to have come from crawling under a chainlink fence, wounds became infected, but she was taken to the vet for care, given medicine and is healed up, but has scarring. Abby is believed to have a fainting spell also, was again seen by the vet, and has not had another episode, both of these issues happened in 2011.

Other Info: Tucker is a 2 year old large sized neutered flashy fawn male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. His owners recently were surprised to find out they are having twins. With no family close by to help, they feel Tucker will not get the attention he deserves with two newborns around. When they sleep and go to work, Tucker is crated; otherwise he roams free. They live in an apartment so no doggie door or free access to outside. He is house and crate trained. Overnight, he can do 8-9 hours in a crate; with their overlapping work schedules he's in his crate anywhere from 3-5 hours. Tucker is very friendly, and excitable with strangers. Per the owners, he seems to understand around small children and calms down but with older ones (taller) he does tend to be jumpy. He is good with other animals although the owners state he isn't aware of the proper way to greet other animals. He wants to barrel right up into their space, completely clueless they may need time to get to know him. He loves getting scrubbed but is a little unsure of the tub surface. He doesn't try to get away or anything. Tucker has had his nails trimmed at the vet and they claimed he was well-behaved. Up until recently, Tucker was getting one good daily walk (anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours) in addition to random potty breaks throughout the day. He is the only dog. They used to take him to the dog park to play where he got along fine but another dog bit him (he didn't react) so they stopped that. Tucker is a big, excitable boxer boy. He was very happy and interested in getting in my lap, was jumping up and ready to play. In my opinion, more daily exercise or a backyard for lots of play would settle him down. He did eventually lay down and relax after I'd been there about 15 minutes. No aggression history with owners and none was seen my me. He currently eats Purina Pro Plan for Sensitive Skin & Stomach. Tucker has attended a training class (Petsmart or Petco I think). He sat and laid down for me with just a hand motion, no treats. Per his owners, Tucker is much better with the husband, walks right by his side. Tucker responds to verbal correction, although a few times the husband grabbed his collar when Tucker was excited and jumping. He did eventually listen. They also just shake their finger at him and claim that works. Per the owners, Tucker doesn't mind when you take things away, he looks like he's wondering why you're doing that but doesn't react. He is a big, friendly but excitable boy. The jumping up is the only thing I saw that a foster home would be concerned about, if they have kids. I think with minimal training and much needed more exercise, this could be corrected. He is used to staying off their furniture. He is current on vaccinations and is on HWP. He would be fine in an apartment foster home, as he does well in his current apartment surroundings. He responds better to the husband so I feel he would need a firm/stronger foster that would be able to give him the proper amount of exercise. Again, I think much needed added exercise would work wonders for him. He's also a tad overweight, and they stated they feed him 2 cups morning & evening. I gently suggested cutting back as he was a little heavier than he should be. They adore their boy Tucker but are afraid once the 2 babies arrive, he'll be neglected. They are my neighbors; anyone is welcome to question me about anything I haven't covered in this eval. No anxieties. He does well in the apartment when left alone in his crate, rides great in the car, doesn't even bark when someone knocks on their door. He does bark a little when he hears someone at the neighbors but not excessive. Seems to have sensitive tummy & there's a spot on his back/side that once was where hair was missing. They gave him coconut oil & give food for sensitive stomach/skin. The spot is now darker but appears healed.

Other Info: Max is a medium size 5 yr old white male boxer. Hes neutered around 55lbs with natural ears and a docked tail. The owner's boyfriend lost his job and they have to move in with someone else and they cannot take the dogs. When the owner is home or away the dogs are free to ream the house. Max stood back and observed the situation before he came to me for loves. He has the softest fur, and is house trained. He is also created trained, but it is unknown for how long he can be crated. Owner has no issues bathing him or clippings his nails, he will just sit there and allows owner to clip them. He has been to the dog park and gets walked around the apartment complex for exercise. He also has two skin kids and a fur sibling Pearl to play with. He was more laid back than Pearl. He just stood and observed the situation and then decided it was okay to come and get some loves from me. He was sitting on the older skin sister's lap for a while. Per the owner he has not shown any aggression over toys. Hes currently being fed Ol Roy dry food. He is deaf and he knows some hand signals but not as many as his fur sibling Pearl. I was told he is good on the leash. They use hand signals to discipline the dogs but they both seemed well behaved. Per the owner, Max has never shown any signs of aggression with food, people or toys. He actually seemed really chill. He came up to me after Pearl got some hugs. He allowed me to pet him and gave me kisses. He is currently not UTD on vaccinations, he was last vaccinated in 2012 and he is not on HWP. He appeared to be good with skin kids and fur kids. When there are strangers he will sit back and take a look at everything before approaching. I was told he does well with car rides, no issues with crowds, fireworks or storms. There are no known illnesses or injuries. He did have a pencil eraser size bump on his right hip. I asked if this was looked at by a vet and I was told that it was a cyst.

Other Info: **Update 12/19: I am being saved by another rescue, I am still available to any approved LBR foster home until I am on the road.**

The volunteer said he is a must save!! This is a 7 to 8 year old neutered large brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. Very happy, friendly, curious boxer boy. He did a lot of smelling of the play yard. He was very attentive of what I was doing and wanted from him. He did jump a few times. Ithink he would be fine with kids, although when I was in play mood he was able to jump from the sitting position as tall as me. But he was very gentle with me the majority of the time. He was picked up with another dog, pit bull. He had no reaction to any of the barking, growling dogs walking by the kennels several times. He is a very smart boy. He knows sit shake and down somewhat. He did pull on the leash, but I think most of that was the excitement of getting out of his kennel. Unable to cat test. Heart worm status unknown, my guess would be positive. He has a very large mass hanging on to the back of his left leg. Couple other spots on his skin may need to be checked out also. But other than the large mass, he seems very healthy. Would really need a dental also due to build up of tarter and breath.... This tall lean handsome boy with unique markings is a must save. He is rescue only in this small shelter due to his large mass hanging from his rear leg. He was a really fun boy and needs to be shown the good life which includes vet visits. He run around the play yard like he was a puppy. He loved to give kisses. He needs an early Christmas miracle. Will you be his secret Santa and give him a foster home to learn the good life as only a LBR foster home can?
