BOXERS IN NEED!
The following boxers need you. They are currently in local shelters or in homes that can no longer care for them for whatever reason. LBR has been asked to help them, but we cannot take them into our program because our foster homes are full. LBR provides all food, vetting a crate, and basic essentials like leash and collar, for each foster boxer - please help us help them!

Please note that in most cases, LBR has no other information about these boxers other than what's listed here.


There are also boxers in shelters that we do not have pictures of. We need all the help we can get at this point. If you are interested in fostering for us, please fill out our foster application by clicking here.

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

This is a 40 pound medium sized unaltered white female Boxer with natural ears and natural tail. I am not sure if she is deaf or can hear. She and her fur sister were surrendered for escaping the yard repeatedly. They never jumped at or on the fence while I was with them. They were content just to have someone give them love. The ACO brought both these sisters to an outside area together, although they are not kenneled together. This pretty white girl and her sister are starved for attention. It is obvious that they have been relegated to the yard without much human interaction for most of their lives I believe. The white girl is quite wild and rambunctious. She jumps up for attention repeatedly. She was in constant motion, jumped up on the picnic table repeatedly, and was so excited that she fell off of things and when jumping would come down on things (like the bench...or me) that could cause injury. Her attention seeking was obvious. After sitting and giving her some attention for several minutes, she calmed slightly, but had to have her legs up on mine, and close to my face to ensure that she was going to get attention. I am unsure if she is deaf. I squeaked a toy behind her head several times with no response, but then she seemed to respond to a finger snap. The ACO says she will test her separately later to see if she gets a response. Eventually, she did calm a little and would sit after multiple requests and physical intervention. She had no interest in toys. She seems to be the more assertive of the two sisters. Whenever I would stand up, she would begin pogo sticking and her back legs were even with my shoulders on more than one occasion. She is quite rough with her jumping. When I would sit, she would calm so when she would understand that I was walking away or leaving. She has had very little, if any, training. They do wiggle-waggle their long tails like crazy...and I was thwacked more than once by them. She is a sweet girl, but is so starved for love and affection that it makes it difficult to do much with her. They were smart...and I think she would pick up commands quickly. For this white girl, I would recommend 12 or older on kids since she is quite rough with her jumping. They walked past other kennels without reaction, however, there was a fight between the sisters while we had them outside. The white girl did start the altercation (she seems more dominant), and the brindle girl tried to defend herself. She ended up on the bottom of the pile and the ACO and I were able to get them apart. Neither was injured that we could see. Cookies and toys were around, but they were not paying attention to that. They were fighting over attention. They did fine for about 15 more minutes before a fight ensued. I hate to even relay this story for fear of her being perceived as aggressive. They are just so attention starved that she isn't willing to share right now. I think she would calm down quickly with some training and feeling more secure about being loved. She did sit eventually with physical direction. No other commands were demonstrated. They did respond some to off and down, but only when repeated multiple times. The ACO walked her back in ahead of me so I did not see her reaction to the kitten cage in the hallway. No lumps, bumps or missing hair. This girl has some small scabbed over wounds on her face and head, and on stomach edge on one side. Probably from jumping up and coming down on things. HW status unknown. Shelter gave reg. vaccinations today and flea treatment, plus worming. Ears a little dirty, teeth clean, nose dry. Shelter took from another shelter because they were full and now they are also full.

This is an unaltererd 1 year old medium sized 40 pound brindle female with natural ears and natural tail. She is not deaf. She and her fur sister were surrendered for escaping the yard repeatedly. They never jumped at or on the fence while I was with them. They were content just to have someone give them love. The ACO brought both these sisters to an outside area together, although they are not kenneled together. This pretty brindle girl and her sister are starved for attention. It is obvious that they have been relegated to the yard without much human interaction for most of their lives I believe. Our brindle girl is quite rambunctious. She jumps up for attention repeatedly. After sitting and giving her some attention for several minutes, she began to calm a little and would sit after multiple requests. She was interested in a squeaky toy I brought and played a little, but I don't think she has had toys before. She is the less assertive of the two sisters. She was curious and kept trying to dig around in my tote bag to see what I had. Whenever I would stand up and she could not easily receive attention, she would begin jumping up again. She has had very little, if any, training. They do wiggle-waggle their long tails like crazy...and I was thwacked more than once by them. She is a sweet girl, but is so starved for love and affection that it makes it difficult to do much with her currently. They were smart...and I think she would pick up commands quickly. She would not be good for children under 10 at this point. Too much jumping...and high. She could easily topple or injure a child inadvertently. They walked past other kennels without reaction, however, there was a fight between the sisters while we had them outside. The white girl did start the altercation, and this brindle girl tried to defend herself. She ended up on the bottom of the pile and the ACO and I were able to get them apart. Neither was injured that we could see. Cookies and toys were around, but they were not paying attention to that. They were competing for attention. She did sit eventually with physical direction. No other commands were demonstrated. They did respond some to off and down, but only when repeated multiple times. She walked past a cage with 3 kittens in it and barely sniffed them. She did watch them as they jumped around, but did not attempt to get at them. No lumps, bumps or missing hair. HW status unknown. Shelter gave reg. vaccinations today and flea treatment, plus worming. Ears a little dirty, teeth clean, nose dry. They are in a totally full shelter.

Other Info: ***Update 7/28: MoJeaux is now aat the shelter***MoJeaux is a 5.5 year old medium sized unaltered white male Boxer with natural ears, docked tail, one blue eye and one eye that is half blue and half brown. He is not deaf. He is being surrendered because the owner does not enough time for him as the kids are getting older and into other things. They recently moved from a large house with a backyard and doggie door to an apartment. He is free to roam the house when they are home. He does not like to be crated or confined in any way. He attempts to get out of the crate (and succeeds). When he is locked in a room he will scratch at the door. He will also jump up and open the door. He has jammed the dead bolt before. When I was evaluating MoJeaux there were three kids there (9 yrs, 4 yrs and 1.5 years). I gave the four year old some treats and he fed them to MoJeaux. MoJeaux took them gently at one point the four year old dropped one and MoJeaux let him pick it back up. The four year old told him to sit, and he sat. The 1.5 yr old hugged on him, sat on his head and even sat on his torso and he had no ill reaction towards the child. He has been exposed to others dogs and been taken to the dog park without any issues. He also has been exposed to kittens without reaction. He is house trained, he is not crate trained. He does well with baths. He could use one as he was digging in the dirt today. He has been taken to a groomer for his nail trims. Owner states that he does fine with the groomer. They go on occasional walks. He has been to the dog park. He was pretty mellow when I was there. They said that he does get a bit more excited when playing. He has never showed aggression toward anyone. Owner stated that he really does not play with toys. He eats Pedigree, small kibbles. Occasionally will get soft dog food. He does like to get in the trash if the trash is not put up. He has not had any training classes. He behaves appropriately. He can sit, shake, lay down and give it up. He followed instructions from the four year old. He does pull sometimes. When told to stop pulling they said he does. The owner stated as a puppy he was disciplined with verbal correction and some minor physical correction (tapping his snout). No issues if someone took a rawhide or food bowl from him. He has been around children without any issues. They believe he does have separation anxiety. They have tried tryptophan (from Petstore) and Benedryl without much success. He likes to have "hugs". Per owner he is UTD on vaccinations. Last HWP on 07-01-14. She did not know which HWP he is on. MoJeaux was wonderful with the children that were there, even the one who sat on his head:) MoJeaux is currently staying with the owner's mothers as the mother has a backyard. Mother will need to have MoJeaux gone by Monday as she has to return to work and he can't be crated. He is okay with thunderstorms. Per owner, he is extremely well behaved except for not liking to be confined. He has two dime-nickel size scabby areas on the top of his head (from trying to escape the crate. He also had a bunch of bumps on his rear left leg (they think maybe from some kind of bug bites).

Other Info: This is a 1 to 2 year old medium sized white female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Upon speaking with the shelter staff, it was noted that this female was aggressive. Picked up as a stray, but my evaluation saw nothing of the sort! She did bark at me through the glass but as soon as she knew I was coming to get her it was all excitement and wags! I now understand the aggressive notes due to her funny Snorts. They sound like growls! She was very excited with kisses and extremely friendly with everyone we passed. Strangers backed away due to her constant snorts, but after explanation they greeted her with lots of love! This girl is a sweetheart! Beautiful eyes. Yes she jumps and is very playful. Very eager to make a friend. Her snorts can not be helped she is unaware of them. We passed Children in the shelter. She was all wags and tried very hard to meet them with a playful attitude while giving me kisses. I think she would be fine. No reaction to other animals, she kept her distance, curious about her surroundings, but as we passed other animals she didn't seem to care at all. Gave very little attention. Pulls on leash, so excited, but not wild, she stayed focused on me and constantly looked to me for more loving. We entered the cat area. She went nose to nose with a kitten, but her interest was very limited. No prey drive at all. I feel with discipline and caution she will be just fine. She was more interested in giving me attention with wags. I found no lumps. Small patch of hair missing on right ear, and she needs food. Very thin. So excited I could not look at her teeth very well. She is young. I saw no signs of recent litter. Possibly spayed, but do not know for sure. She will be a Gorgeous Boxer with love and care. Her stray hold is up 8/2 and she will be urgent at that time. Sweet girl!

Other Info: This distinguished gentleman was found as a stray. He is very sweet and very handsome. He came nose to nose with a small little dog and he just wiggled his nub. He may be potty trained as he went potty as soon as he got outside. He also knows sit and took treats very gently. He is not at all jumpy and is very well behaved. I think he will be fine with children of all sizes. He has a small lump on his back and he needs a neuter. Other than that he appears to be in good condition. He is about 12 years old and deserves to spend his final days in a home with a loving family. I do hope that we can help him. He does not deserve to die in a shelter. Please help this sweet handsome boy.

Other Info: Roscoe P Coltrane is a 2 year old neutered medium sized fawn male with natural ears and a natural tail. He is not deaf. Roscoe is an absolute doll. He was very calm and friendly. He was a dream on the leash even with other dogs charging at him. He sat and shook paws when asked. ACO says he knows other commands as well. He did not jump at all. He's a bit of a leaner but not knock you over strong..I loved this sweet boy! So handsome too. Roscoe did very well with my 10 year old son. He obeyed him on the leash too. I think he'd be great with any age. I believe he is kenneled with other dogs. ACO says he is fine with them. No aggression seen when the other dogs yapped at him in passing. He does know basic commands. Walks great on a leash. No jumping or pulling. Unknown if there are any illnesses or health issues, I didn't see anything obviously wrong with him. His teeth looked good. He does have a small healing sore on the tip of his tail. He is neutered, chipped and up to date on his shots. heart worm status unknown. He needs a few groceries and a bath. Look out then because he is going to be absolutely stunning! He's exactly what our AA's are wanting. Seems like he'd be a great foster. I give him 2 thumbs up, way up!

Other Info: This boy is very cute! He is about 1 year old and has natural ears and a natural tail. He has the cutest underbite and is a beautiful shade of red. This poor boy is covered in fleas, very hand shy, and needs groceries. I'm not sure how long he has been on his own, but I suspect it has been a while. He carefully approached us and gently took treats from our hands. He wants to trust humans so badly, so I don't think it will take him long to come out of his shell. Once he does, our adopters will be lined up to meet him. Based on his age, I would believe that he is dog friendly. He ignored all of the barking dogs in the kennels that we passed on our way to the play yard. This boy deserves a furever home and a loving family. He gave me the saddest look when we put him back in his kennel. I do hope we can save him.

Other Info: **Update 6/26: Murphy is doing better health wise, he keeps getting sick because he keeps eating socks. Still needs to surrender as soon as we can find a foster home**

Murphy is a 6 year old gorgeous 69 pound fawn love bug. He has a beautiful coat, kind manners and loves to snuggle. He is in a home with two children, 9 and 5, and loves them to bits. He is on a special diet due to chicken and grain allergies and has an ear that gets red when his allergies flare up. He is neutered and owner was going to take him in March to get up to dates on shots and heart worm tested, but we have never received confirmation of this having been done. He is good with other dog friends and kids. Is a little shy around men but warms up quickly. He was rescued 1 year ago from a different rescue at 4 years old. His moms financial situation has changed and they struggle with providing Murphy with the food and vetting he needs. He can be a little mischievous and steal a child's sock or shoe, most likely out of boredom. Needs an active family who needs to add a cuddler to their home.

Other Info: Bea is a small 2.5 year old spayed fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She was born 1/1/2012. She is being surrendered for financial reasons. They saved Who (BIN 14464) and Bea from going to a shelter but already have 2 dogs and cats of their own. They cannot afford them all. Bea stays in the house and is crated when they are away. She was allowed on furniture and anywhere in house. Very friendly. She does get right in your face, but only because she wants to give kisses. She is incredibly friendly but would probably knock younger kids down. She lives with dogs and cats and likes both, but owner said cats aren't very fond of Bea because she always wants to kiss them. She is house trained and crate trained. She does great with hose, loves the water but not pools. Owners have not trimmed her nails. She exercises with other dogs in backyard. Bea gets very excited and doesn't not sit still unless you are sitting. Then she is right in your lap for love and kisses. Owners said she will play tug of war with Who, but was not interested in toys while we were there. She is not possessive with toys. She eats Ol Roy Meaty Chunks and Gravy. Bea knows sit and shake. Owner said you have to use a harness with her because she knows how to maneuver out of collar. Verbal and crate used for discipline, but told she does not need much correcting. No aggression, no issues if someone took away food bowl or rawhide. She is such a love bug. She might be too "in your face" for some people. Also, owner said she will chew things she shouldn't if you're not watching her. Not up to date on vaccinations or heart worm prevention. Bea is on the smaller side. She is beautiful and so loving!!! She was on the furniture and getting love almost the entire visit. I believe she is a gem and will make one lucky family very happy!! She was timid when we first met, but warmed up quickly. Owner said she doesn't like vacuum but doesn't bark at it. no health issues or illnesses.

Other Info: Who is 2.5 year old unaltered fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He was born 1/1/2012. His owners are surrendering him due to financial reasons. They saved Who and Bea (BIN 14465) from going to a shelter but already have 2 dogs and cats of their own. They cannot afford them all. Who is not house trained. They said when he gets excited he urinates so has to be crated or in the backyard. They said when he met us he would probably urinate out of excitement, but he did not. So I'm not really sure what to make of this. I had my son with me and Who was excellent. He is a big dog and did jump up some, but he knows sit and only jumped in the beginning. He was very friendly with all of us. Did not see him around new animals, but he lives with other dogs and cats and loves them all. not house trained. He is crate trained, in a wire crate, unsure how long he can go. He loves baths. They said he does not like pools but is great with the hose. They have not trimmed nails He plays in the backyard with other dogs. Who LOVES tug of war!!! I would not consider him high energy though. He would get excited and jump, but he would calm down fairly easily. Sweet, sweet boy. Not possessive with toys. Eats Ol Roy Meaty Chunks and Gravy. Owners believe the son did some training with him. I was able to get him to sit and shake. He would need some work on this. He kept grabbing the leash in his mouth like he wanted to walk himself. It was actually pretty cute, and he really wasn't pulling, just jumping to get the leash. Verbal correction and crate are used for discipline. No food or toy aggression. The urinating in the house is an issue. Because they do keep him in the crate, I'm not sure how much they have worked on this. Not up to date on vaccinations or heart worm prevention. Who was very, very sweet. He is young and gorgeous and looks incredibly healthy. He does not like weed wackers. That was the only thing they could come up with. Sleeps through storms no problem. The owners said they wonder if there is some sort of brain damage. Who stopped breathing after he was born and had to be revived. They described it this way: We teach him things but then it's like he doesn't remember. I did think he seemed to be in his own little world when we met him, but we were outside and he kept grabbing his leash in his mouth like he wanted to walk himself. I questioned at one point if he could hear because he was so uninterested in us and what we were doing, but I called him a few times and he did respond.

Other Info: Skyy is a 4 year old average sized unaltered white female Boxer with natural ears, docked tail and blue eyes. She is deaf. Her owner is moving to an apartment that will not allow Boxers. She is the Mom of the 5 Boxers pups recently pulled by LBR. She is kept outside. She was very friendly and attention seeking while we were there. Owner has had medical problems and it did not look like mama dog got much attention or extra care. She is not house trained. Crate trained per owner. Skyy appeared to have not been groomed in a while. Unknown how she acts for nail trims, nails very long. She gets exercise in back yard. Good energy level. Probably doesn't play much. Owner did not mention she was possessive with toys, no real signs of dog toys. No training, does not know any hand signals. She is disciplined by physical correction or owners ignore. She lives with small children, but she is outside all the time. She jumped up on volunteer, but gently. She is not up to date on vaccinations and has never been on heart worm prevention. This little girl is badly in need of loving attention, she is sweet and gentle. She will need dedicated adopter/foster that is willing to take time with her training. I have no reason to believe she will not learn quickly as I feel she will be food and attention motivated. I think with proper introductions she will do well with other dogs. Nothing makes her worry or behave differently. Unknown if she has any illnesses or injuries, per owner the boxer has not been to vet in at least one year. She has had two litters of puppies, the last 8 weeks ago. She has a lot of scabs under neck, maybe from the puppies. No other bumps, lumps or signs of problems. She is at a high risk of being surrendered to a shelter or given away in an ad on Craig’s List.

Other Info: Hannah is a 3 year old 54 lb spayed white female with natural ears and docked tail. Her family didn't realize she would be so time consuming and they have a small house. They do not feel they can give her the time and affection she needs. Hannah is free to roam the house but is kept in the utility room when owners are away. She has not been crated and possibly would not like it, but training would be simple with her gentle nature. Wonderful with children and strangers. Hannah greeted me well, did NOT jump and was eager to show me how she could run and play in the yard. She was a show off. Very sweet. Owner lifts Hannah into the tub with no issues and does very well with baths. Owner had a very nice large backyard that Hannah runs around in. She is not taken out for walks or removed from the property area. When asked what her reaction would be towards other outside strangers walking with their own animals, owner stated she would be fine. Never has shown any type of aggression. Hannah plays extremely well with a very small Terrier that resides with her. Hannah plays on cue. Loves to run, but also knows when it's time to settle down. Very gentle and calm personality. Does not enjoy toys. No interest at all. Hanna had some sort of stomach upset. Owner put her on Gastro Intestinal food. No longer needed, but owner never changed back to plain regular. Hannah has been fine ever since. No special training classes. Hannah sat on command, but only after I used treats. No other commands obeyed, but could be trained easily. Pulls on leash. Verbal corrections only, but she doesn't do anything worthy of much correction. Shares her food well with her small companion. Never has shown a possessive character. No behavior issues. Does not chew, and is always relaxed while owners are gone. Hannah would prefer a more quiet environment, as she is normally very gentle and calm. Gives licks and kisses. Needs her yearly vaccinations. Last HWP given Oct 2013. Good with storms. Hannah might startle from a loud noise but nothing out of the norm. Good in car. Welcomes everyone. No illnesses or allergies. Hannah is fed well, skin looks good and healthy. No lumps or any elbow callouses. I noticed bleeding from her back left paw pad. Owner states that when she runs she twists as she plays and her paw scrapes the concrete with excitement. Abrasion always heals and only occurs on that one paw. There were no signs of a torn nail or foreign object after further inspection. Liquid Band-Aid is used by the owner. This happens rarely.

Other Info: Luca is a 10 year old unaltered 77 pound flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. His owner wants to surrender him because they have no more time for him due to small children in the home. Luca roams free in the house when the family is home. He's in the laundry room with a baby gate while the family is away. He's a very relaxed guy, and chills, basically. He's great with people, and children. Luca has a sweet and gentle personality. He's independent, in that he doesn't demand attention, but he loves and appreciates the time he gets with his people. He's a sweat heart! House and crated trained. He does well when his nails are clipped at PetSmart; and he's good with being bathed in the bathtub with the shower head. He's good with harness walking, but it's not on a regular basis. He gets to go outside and play in the backyard. Luca is laid back and very easy going. He has energy though, and remains curious in nature, but he's very low-key. His physique looks like an athlete, but his personality is that of a gentleman. He's a very good looking boy, and his photos don't do him justice. Anyone who decides to take him in, will fall instantly in love, I'm certain. He comes from a good place, and he's been loved for years. His family just wants more for him than they are able to provide with their additional obligations. And Luca deserves it :-) He's not into toys really. He eats Purina One (1) Senior Blend; chicken or lamb (he's sensitive to beef, and will throw it up) Luca attended a PetSmart puppy training course when he was younger. The command that he knows is 'sit'. Otherwise, nothing specific, but Luca listens when he's talked to, and follows directions easily. Luca is very sensitive, and only receives gentle verbal corrections, if ever any are necessary. He does like to be a part of the action, along with the family, but is very obedient and submissive. He is not at all reactive to anything related to his food bowl, or a treat, or a toy. He's very chill in his demeanor. Children under the age of 5 would not be advisable in Luca's environment, only because he gets a little excited and is a big guy. He could possibly knock over a younger child by accident. But seriously, he's a GREAT guy! He needs to be brought up to date on vetting. The family didn't want to put Luca 'under again', so that's why he's not neutered. He's had an allergic reaction to the rabies vaccine, and then was given Benadryl to counteract the effects. He's doesn't receive flea treatments, only Iverhart Max for HWP. Luca is well worth the effort to check out... he's beautiful, sweet, loving, and has this terrific personality... he's independent and curious, and doesn't behave like he knows his true age!!!!! That's my kind of guy ;-) I love his spirit and I think others will fall for him as well. Luca is nervous about loud noises, such as fireworks or thunderstorms, and that's about it. One year ago, Luca was diagnosed with an enlarged prostate, but no surgery was required. He's had recurring ear infections, which are treated with antiseptic washes and medicated drops.

Other Info: Lexi is a 50 pound 3 1/2 year old spayed fawn female with natural ears and docked tail. Lexi's owners want to surrender her due to the recent development of redirected aggression toward their male Boxer. For instance if Lexi is already barking at something outside and the male approaches her then she'll attack him. They have a new born and young child in the house and Lindsey is afraid Lexi will harm one of the kids when she's doing this. She's crated up to 8 to 10 hours when the family is away and inside/outside when they're home. When they're home sometimes both dogs are kept in the backyard. She does well with the adults and children in the family. She was very hyper, but friendly when I met her. She does jump, but she can be redirected with a toy. She's reported to be dog friendly. She's not happy to take a bath, but she permits it. Owner has never tried to trim her nails and pays the vet to do it. She used to go on walks before the owner was pregnant. She pulls at the leash, so she hasn't been walked lately. Now it's backyard play with the male. She may be bored. She seems high energy, but about what you'd expect from a Boxer. Owner says her play style is very boxer-y. Jumping, lots of paws. Not with people, some with the male boxer. She's only had home training. She knows sit and down. No aggression with people, some with the male boxer. She has displayed some aggression to ward the male boxer in the home, but only when she's already wound up. She does jump when she meets new people, so she might not be good with small kids. This behavior may be able to be corrected. Up to ate on vaccines and on HWP. She seems like a sweet boxer, very typically boxer-y. She's pretty cute and has a healthy coat. She definitely needs to work off some energy. Of the two Boxers she is the more energetic. Nothing bothers her. She's very even keeled, except for her recent aggression. No health issues that her family is aware of.

Other Info: Layla Ali is a 4 year old large sized spayed flashy brindle female with cropped ears and a docked tail. She weighs 65 pounds and was born February 2010. She is being surrendered due to her owners loss of finances and having two children in college. They are selling home and moving into an apartment. They love her very much...so much so that the husband would not sit in on the interview as he is quite emotional about having to give her up. Layla lives indoors. She is a beautiful flashy reverse brindle. They do not have a dog door. She was initially crated when younger, however, she has not been crated for well over a year. She has full range of the home. They used to put her in a bedroom upstairs, however they have door handles, not knobs and she has learned to let herself in...and out...of the doors. She is inside when they are gone. She is let out to sun and potty and then comes back in. She was a slightly shy, but friendly boxer. After a few minutes and a couple of scratches and treats from me, she warmed up. House trained and crate trained when younger. She allows them to bathe her. They used to have nails trimmed at vet, but have recently started trimming themselves. They distracted her with bacon bits while they trimmed her nails. She gets exercise by walks with son approximately 1 time per week, otherwise is just in the yard to play. Layla did not exhibit play while I was there. She laid close by and watched and listened to us. She had moderate energy and would come back every few minutes for another scratch. Eventually I got one soft kiss. She is not a huge face licker which is good for younger children. They indicated she is not possessive with toys, but I did not see toys to test with. She eats dry Beneful...to which they sometimes add cottage cheese...which she loves. Layla was taught by family. She can sit, down, come (when she wants to), heel, leave it, stay (for a short time) and wait. Layla rings a bell on the door to go outside...and if they are late with her dinner. Layla does not counter surf or get into the trash. She does not chew up things Layla doesn't jump up on people and has recently spent some play time with a 4 year old girl and did not knock her down or act inappropriately as they played. Owner stated Layla walks well on leash. Verbal correction and loud hand clap when necessary are used for discipline. Food and toys could be removed by family with no reaction. Grandparents have come over to feed and had no issues. Layla will sit and wait until food is placed on floor. If voices are raised in the house, Layla will bark. She does not jump, dig or nip. She is frightened by people who make a lot of noise...like contractors that were working on the home. Last vaccinations and heart worm prevention were in May 2013. They have a complete file of vet records and breed papers and just recently have been unable to afford to keep her vaccines and heart worm prevention up to date. Owners do not want to get rid of her but are moving to an apartment and know it is not in the dogs best interest to keep her. Layla has a boxer friend and a bulldog friend that she gets to play with off and on. She is an only dog with them, but they feel she would like a playmate. Layla does well with other dogs, but does not seem to know that not every dog is friendly. Layla's ears were cropped at the breeders, however, they have never stood up, they droop over as though they are natural ears. (in fact, until we started trying to look at the tumor, I thought they were natural) Layla doesn't like loud noises, but doesn't panic. Just wants to be close to her people when something startles her or she is worried. Layla has a small thumb sized growth coming out of her left ear from the intertragic lodge (I think). She will not let you mess with it at all and was terrified of my phone, so pictures of it weren't possible although we tried. The owner called it a blood clot,, but I think it might be a small tumor. Also, her Anthelix was huge in both ears and almost looked as though it was blocking the canal. She has had repeated bouts of ear infections and shakes her head frequently. The little bit that I could see looked clean and did not look like it had mite debris. When she was 1 year old, she got spooked by a contractor doing work upstairs and JUMPED down the stairwell. She fractured her left front leg and was casted for a period of time. There is no visible favoring or hindrance from the break. It is well healed. She has no lumps, bumps, scarring or hair loss. She is probably 5 to 8 pounds overweight. Her coat is clean and shiny. She is well taken care of. She occasionally licks her front feet webbing as though it is irritated and it gets red sometimes. They can't find anything wrong, but they put some cortisone spray on it and it generally goes away. (maybe allergy?)

Other Info: Kasey's family is moving to Australia in early September and cannot take her with them. This is an almost 8 year old spayed, flashy fawn female who weighs 60 lbs. She is good with kids, not good with other female dogs, cats unknown and has been with a few males which she was fine with. This family has had Kasey since she was 8 weeks old. She is up to date with vaccines and heart worm. Owner has all of her medical records from the time she was a baby. She stays outside in a chain link run most of the day and sleeps in the house in a crate at night. She was very well behaved, knows how to sit and walk on a leash. She will not get on furniture unless invited. She jumped on me at first but settled down soon. She is a beautiful dog with a squishy black face. No lumps or bumps except one small skin tag on right flank. Gorgeous coat and trimmed nails. Does not get much exercise and was still very laid back. With a backyard to run in she would be pretty low energy I would think. Ears are natural and very clean. Tail docked. I loved this dog immediately. I wish that I could take her home with me! The family will take her to you with her toys and bedding but not her crate.

Other Info: Ginger is a 4 year old spayed fawn female boxer with natural ears and docked tail. Her owners are surrendering her because she has become snippy with a smaller dog in the home. Also, her family will be traveling a lot and feel it is not fair to keep boarding her. She is free to roam the house and stays inside and outside. She is good with the family and was very friendly with me. She was raised with children. Most of the time she does get along with the smaller dog in the home, but sometimes there is a show of aggression. She is house and crate trained and has stayed in a crate up to 6 hours. She does fairly well with baths and grooming and is good with nail trims. She gets her exercise in the backyard. They used to walk her on a leash, but now there is some leash aggression. She has typical boxer style energy. She will bring toys and play fetch. She let me take toys from her mouth and did not growl. She is not possessive of her toys. She was hard to photograph because she would not stay still for me. She acted like she was so happy to get attention. She is fed dry food. Her family can take food away from her without problems. She knew “sit” but was too wiggly to do much more. Her family said she is good on a leash while walking unless she sees another dog or strangers. She then barks and acts aggressive and protective of her people. I really feel that Ginger is not acting aggressive in a mean manner, but because she was attacked by other dogs and now has trust issues. . Owner stated that none of the above behaviors did not start until neighbors' German shepherds started jumping fence and running loose in the alley between homes and would attack Ginger through the fence. Since then, she has times she acts aggressive towards the small dog in the home, but has never actually harmed the dog. She did not show any negative behavior when I entered the house at all. Owners use verbal discipline. Owners say she is current on her vaccinations and is on heartworm prevention. Ginger is a beautiful classic fawn girl. Her coat is on the darker side, with a good shine to it. She looks to weigh about 45 pounds. I would consider her a pocket boxer, good apartment size. She was wiggly and loving.

Other Info: Zora is a tall 7 year old spayed sealed brindle female with natural ears and docked tail. She has a good weight on her. She is being surrendered because her owner has a 14 month old child and she does not want dog hair on the floor where the child crawls. Zora is very vigilant and protective of mom and baby when dad not home. NO aggression or protectiveness with mom. When owner is away, she is kept inside uncrated. Per family she is not destructive but will get into trash. When dad came home she was bouncy, playful, happy. I observed the baby grabbing her jowlies and Zora just ignored it. Wen we first came to the house dad was not home. Zora gave warning growls when we entered the house, but not the attack kind. She then went to the couch where the baby was sleeping and laid in front of the couch right there. Mm was on the couch by her baby and if i approached the couch I got warning growls, but no overt signs of impending attack. I was finally able to sit on the couch next to her, but not real close to the baby. She watched me very closely with ears back, but no more growling. I was able to scratch by her nub and slowly work my way up to neck and ears. She continued to watch me very closely. I DID NOT attempt to touch the child. She is house trained and crate trained. She does well for bathing and grooming, loves the water. She is good for nail trims. She gets exercise by walks, going to the dog park and playing in the back yard. Normal energy level. She is not possessive with toys. She knows the commands for high five and sit. Very little pulling per owner when walking on a leash. She is disciplined by verbal correction. Vaccinations were done in July of 2013 and she is not on heart worm prevention. Zora does not appear the stated age. She is in very good shape, well mannered and appeared just a typical boxer after dad came home. I suggest that any foster home or adoptive home with children (especially small ones) be very aware how protective she is. I do not feel that she is aggressive at other times. I feel she would be a good family member for anyone also, per the mom, this protective behavior just started when the baby was born.
