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: George is a 10 month old large neutered fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. George Jones was super excited to see new people and be out of the kennel! He is very friendly and FULL of energy! He will do well with children that are at least 5+! He is super jumpy which scared my 2 year old, but my 5 year old thought he was pretty fun! George Jones was surrendered for "not being good with other dogs", but I did not see anything that would validate that. He wagged his tail walking by other kennels. George Jones knows sit, but pulled at the leash when walking and when still. The shelter worker walked by with cats in kennels and he was interested. He is heart worm negative per the shelter. George Jones is neutered and looks healthy. Very much a "teenager"... all legs, and super lanky. He is probably 60-65lbs now and will be over 80lbs when he fills out. He is super cute. The volunteer would have taken him if it weren't for her 2 yr old.

Other Info: Roxxy is a 7 year old 50-60 pound spayed fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not up to date on vaccinations. Roxxy is being surrendered because her family is facing financial difficulties and needs to move. This is an incredibly hard decision for this family as they have had Roxxy and Dutch since they were puppies. Roxxy and Dutch live with 3 children with the youngest at 4 years old. Roxxy is free to roam the home. Roxxy is crate and house trained. The crate is not used very often and is sometimes used as her 'time-out' place. She will go in the kennel but she does not prefer it. Roxxy does not get on the furniture, does not sleep on the bed, but has plenty of pillows to lay on. Roxxy is very well behaved. The current owner uses verbal correction and usually the tone of the owner's voice will correct Roxxy's behavior. She is timid, but warms up quickly. She definitely is not a jumpy girl and took to the volunteer right away. She likes slow introductions with other dogs, but warms up well. Roxxy is bathed at a groomer and the owner advised there were never any problems with baths, even when she is bathed at home. The owner was always afraid to trim Roxxy's nails as she was afraid to hurt her. Roxxy had her nails trimmed while at the groomer and there were never any problems. Roxxy loves to go to the dog park and loves to go for walks. She plays with her "people." Roxxy will play with other dogs, but really loves to play with her people. Roxxy has no problem playing with other dogs and toys. Roxxy currently eats a new brand of pedigree dry food and she gets chicken for a treat. Roxxy was trained at PetCo with a clicker and treats. She knows sit, stay and move...as in out of the way. Roxxy will pull on the lead at first but then settles down when walking. The current owner advised that Roxxy does not have a problem with toys, food or treats being taken away from her. The current owner advised that Roxxy is just the best dog ever. Roxxy is actually the mother of Dutch. Roxxy was 3 when she was bred with Dutch's father. Roxxy had 9 puppies and was then spayed. The current owner spoke with such pride in Roxxy of what a good mother she was and how close she is to Dutch. Roxxy was very loving and sweet to Dutch and when Dutch wanted attention, she would let him worm his way in to get some pets and ear rubs from his family. The current owner wants Roxxy and Dutch to be loved and have a great home. Roxxy's coat is nice and slick; there are no lumps, bumps or scars on Roxxy and she has no pad wear. She has a little bit of gray in her muzzle, but she has such love in her eyes and is very gentle and sweet. Roxxy is afraid of the strong/loud thunderstorms and absolutely goes nuts with the doorbell. Roxxy will bark and bark and bark and bark and bark when the doorbell rings. Roxxy does not have a problem with fireworks, love car rides, loves kids and does not jump on them. Roxxy does not mind going to the vet, and has no problem with crowds.

Other Info: Dutch is a 4 year old 80 pound fawn neutered male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not up to date on his vaccinations or on heart worm prevention. He is the son of Roxxy (BIN 17003). Dutch is being surrendered because his family is facing financial difficulties and needs to move. This is an incredibly hard decision for this family as they have had Roxxy (BIN 17003) and Dutch since they were puppies. Roxxy and Dutch live with 3 children with the youngest at 4 years old. Dutch is free to roam the home. He is crate and house trained. The crate is not used very often and is sometimes used as his 'time-out' place. He will go in the kennel but he does not prefer it. Dutch does not get on the furniture, does not sleep on the bed, but has plenty of pillows to lay on. Dutch warms up very slowly to men. When the volunteer first met Dutch, he was still in the vehicle and the volunteer had on a baseball cap. He did not like the volunteer and did not like the baseball cap. Once Dutch was introduced slowly, he warmed up. He was great with the 3 children during the evaluation. The current owner advised that Dutch does not like to get in and out of the car (they have a small SUV), but when he gets in, he rides great and when he gets out, he is great. Dutch is very well behaved. The current owner uses verbal correction and usually the tone of the owner's voice will correct Dutch's behavior. The current owner advised that Dutch does not have any problems with bathing or grooming, but Dutch does plant himself when they give him a bath at home. The current owner stated it was like he became dead weight and didn't want to move. Dutch has his nails trimmed during grooming and there were no issues. Dutch goes to the dog park but he does not like to run or go for walks. He played well in the park from what the volunteer was able to see and the current owner advised that Dutch plays well with other dogs in the park but really is just chill. Dutch is very sluggish, probably from his weight. He did not jump and is NOT interested in toys. Dutch is a counter-surfer though. Dutch currently eats dry Pedigree dog food. Dutch was trained at Petco with a clicker and treats. He knows sit, stay and move...as in out of the way. Dutch has minimal pulling at first on the lead, but Dutch just watched the world go by during the eval. Dutch does not react when food, treats or toys are taken away from him. Dutch is not a barker. He will follow Roxxy to the door when the doorbell rings and may bark once. Dutch is just a chill kind of dog and nothing really seems to bother him. Dutch has no know injuries or illnesses. Dutch is a larger boy. He may need some testing to see if he is hypothyroid, diabetic or just needs to lose some weight. The current owner advises that he does not have an increased appetite, but he also doesn't like to exercise or walk.

Other Info: Rocky is a 50 lb unaltered 9 year old fawn male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. His family has young boys who are both involved with sports, which take them out of town several times a month. They also have lots of evenings where they are away from the home and he is alone. Currently Rocky is being boarded several days a month and the family feels it would be better for him to be with a family that is home more often and he will not have to spend time boarded with the vet. Rocky is mostly kept outside. He is allowed to come in at night and sleeps in his crate. Rocky is a sweet boy, very calm and gentle. Family has had him since he was a puppy. He loves their boys who are 16 and 9. He did not bark and was not aggressive towards us as we entered the home. We were able to pet him immediately without him being afraid. They stated he will bark when a stranger enters the yard, ie, lawn guys, etc. Family stated friends have brought their dogs over and he does fine with them being in the home. He is not aggressive towards other dogs while out for walks, just curious like he wants to play. Owner said if they have small children over and they pull or poke at him, he does well with no reaction. He is both house and crate trained. He is kept in his crate at night and at times when it is raining outside. Crate is metal/wire. Owner stated they bathe him outside and he does well. Likes to be rubbed during the bathing. Family stated vet trims nail and they do not know how he reacts to this. He is outside on his own for the majority of the day where he has free roam of the yard. Family stated when it's not too hot, their son will walk him on the leash. Rocky's energy level is low. Once we took him outside he did get more excited, but seemed happy and just trotted around. He does not have any toys that I could see. Family stated he was not possessive with toys. He has not had any professional training. He is super smart. He was able to show us sit, down, roll over, shake, and high-five. Family stated he learns quickly. Family stated Rocky doesn't really need correction, that he is a good dog. Says if anything, they will use verbal correction if necessary. Their oldest son reached in his food bowl and took some out to hand feed him and he was all wags. They stated he does not have any food aggression. He is a sweet boy and well behaved. Family stated since he is boarded several times a month, the vet keeps him up to date on vaccinations. They stated he will need one coming up in December. I wanted to take this boy home with me. He was gentle, sweet, happy and a love bug. He has been well taken care of and in good health. I feel like he would do well with any adopter. We could tell he loved the boys and is very attached to one specifically. Although he is 9, he does not appear to look his age. He is doesn't show any signs of arthritis or having difficulty health-wise due to his age. He is afraid of thunder and the washer and dryer. He tends to cry when he knows a storm is coming. Since the washer and dryer upset him, the family keeps the door to the laundry room closed. The dryer was running while we were there and he seemed fine.

Other Info: Smudge is a 2 year old large spayed female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Smudge was purchased from a breeder in Bartonville. Smudge's sister was purchased by the owner's brother and lives in California now. Smudge has been diagnosed with Chronic Juvenile Folliculitis and has been undergoing therapy for same since 03/2016. She has been allergy tested and noted to have HIGH ALLERGIES to bees, soy and eggs. They found out about the bees after Smudge ate some bees and had anaphylaxis. She has been treated with chronic steroids, antibiotics, zyrtec, omega fatty acids, special food, and special beds. She is not up-to-date on her vaccinations or heart worm prevention because of these special medications. The owner's vet advised them that routine shots and heart worm prevention during steroids could cause additional medical problems for Smudge. The owner's stated that they have been diligent with Smudge's medications, and special food. The family has 3 children, so Smudge is very good with children. The family has a lot going on and is not able to provide all of the attention and meet her needs. The owner also pays to have Smudge's folliculitis pustules opened and cleaned (this puts Smudge under sedation). She has patchy hair and the follicles bleed and have pus on them. The volunteer did not smell an odor to the pus, and Smudge is clean, well-kept and has no fleas or ticks. Her teeth are clean, but her snout has some infected follicles as well. Smudge is a VERY healthy 80 pound, tall white girl with a brown patch on her right eye. She is SUPER friendly, she gave me kisses, boxer butt wiggles and leans. She is HIGHLY intelligent and sits, shakes and loves her treats. Because of her skin, she only gets greenies as treats (per the owner's vet). Smudge is completely an outside dog, but does come in the home when the family is around. She loves to play with the children in the home and loves to run. She has a special pallet outside with a warming light and has access to water. The owner advised Smudge is loving, loyal, good with people, loves the car, is a "talker", is super smart and LOVES kids and the neighbors. The owner advised that when Smudge gets out of the back yard, she goes to the neighbors house and they all love her. Smudge is a "wants to please" girl, and loves parks and walks and she has NEVER been to the dog park. She has been house trained since a puppy. Smudge does not like a crate per the owner. Smudge had anxiety when she was a puppy. Smudge doesn't like it but tolerates a bath and she gets a bath 2 times a week. She is an outside dog and runs and plays in a very large backyard. She is high energy, but doesn't bark at the mailman, fed ex, or other people she "knows". She will alert to strangers near the home and has never been aggressive to adults or children. She has never been aggressive to other dogs, unknown about cats. Smudge is high energy, but settles down easily. She currently eats dry, Wellness Simple, Limited Ingredient Diet (Salmon & Potato). It has no soy, corn, dairy, eggs etc. This food is on the approved list from the vet. Smudge has not had any formal training; the owner had trained Smudge when she was a puppy. Smudge pulls on her lead at first, but she settles down. The current owner uses verbal correction and time-out as a form of discipline. The owner advised that Smudge actually tells on herself when she does something she shouldn't (like digging). The owner advised Smudge can be a Houdini and get out of the yard, and is NOT a fence jumper. If Smudge doesn't want her treat that you give her right then....she will find a place to bury it...even in the couch. She does not have any reaction to toys, food, and other items being taken away. Smudge actually believes you are taking the bowls, toys, etc to get her something better. Smudge is microchipped and registered. Smudge does not get excited or upset over fireworks, loud noises, etc. This is a hard decision for the family. The whole family wanted Smudge, but as her medical condition has taken such an interesting turn, no one but the wife takes care of her.

Other Info: Bentley is a 7 year old neutered average sized fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered because his owner adopted him from the shelter because he had been there a long time and she was afraid he would be put down. She lives in a small apartment with 2 other dogs and a cat and doesn't really have the room for him. She intended for it to be a temporary situation for him just to get him out of the shelter. When the owner is home, Bentley is free to roam. She says Bentley, her two small dogs, and her cat all sleep in the bed together :) When she is at school during the day, Bentley goes to doggie day care. If it's a short trip out, she will crate him. He is great with everyone! He is fine in crowds and nice to everyone he meets, he is a gentle guy. He is house and crate trained, but he has some separation anxiety and has injured himself trying to get out of his crate. He is great for baths and grooming. He has never had his nails trimmed. He goes on walks with his owner and plays with some other dogs at daycare for exercise. Bentley was very calm and chill when I was there. She said he still likes to play, just not as often as a younger dog. She says he still has a pep in his step when he goes on walks, but overall he is pretty laid back. He is not possessive with toys. He currently eats puppy food as the owner is trying to put weight on him. He is still underweight even though he has gained ten pounds since he was rescued. He was very good with commands that were given while I was there, sit, shake, down. He also knows off when he needs to get off the sofa or something. His owner is pretty dog savvy and has worked with him, not sure if his previous owners gave him any training. His leash walking is great. He was very calm and well behaved. He is disciplined using verbal correction. He is totally fine with food, not aggressive at all. His only issue is some separation anxiety. He is up to date on vaccinations and not currently on heart worm prevention. Bentley is a wonderful dog. He was just so sweet and calm and gentle. He gave me gentle kisses when I asked for them. He sounds like a real catch! He just needs someone who will work with him on his separation anxiety. He loves people and animals and would be great with dogs, cats and kids. He seems to have anxiety when left alone. The owner said the first couple days that she got him she left him uncrated and he was fine, but then he started getting into things, so she crated him when he was gone. The owner does think that he may be okay if he had a better crate where he couldn't hurt himself trying to get out or if he had a doggie door where he could go in and out, but that was just her instinct. The shelter said he was heart worm positive when she picked him up in November. She said they did put him on a slow kill dose, but she hasn't done anything since. So he probably needs to be re-checked and then complete treatment if needed. He also tried to escape his crate a few weeks ago and injured himself while doing so. He had some scabs on his face and ears from it that are healing.

Other Info: Billet is a 7 year old unaltered medium sized flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. The current owner states she is unable to take care of Billet due to school and financial concerns. Billet was returned to her after being found unexpectedly. The current owner and her ex boyfriend shared Billet, but Billet was kept by the ex for years. Billet was deemed lost recently and the current owner was contacted when Billet was found due to his microchip contact information. Billet is kept inside the majority of the day, where he sleeps. He is allowed outside in the yard to play with the other family dogs. When the family is not home, Billet is kept inside his kennel. Billet appears to be very friendly with strangers. He greeted me with sweet kisses and did not jump. The current owner states he typically jumps at strangers but calms down and is easily re-directed. The current owner also states she has introduced Billet to her best friend's 19-month old baby that Billet appeared to just love on the baby. He gave the little girl kisses and stood by her side. The current owner states there are no signs of aggression toward strangers, animals, or children. Billet is house trained and he has only had one accident inside since August. Billet is crate trained and sleeps in his crate while the family is away from the home. The current owner's brother states Billet does not like to be bathed. He's not a fan of water per say. He tries to jump out of the bathtub every chance he gets. It is unknown how Billet acts when getting his nails trimmed. Billet is walked around their neighborhood or allowed to run around in their backyard for exercise. He is an energetic 7 year old boxer. He has a few gray hairs, but if it wasn't for that, his personality shows a spunky 4 year old. He is very playful and appears to enjoy the company of people. Billet did not show any sign of aggression towards toys. He is currently eating Blue Wilderness. Billet was personally trained at home. Billet does not like the leash and would benefit from leash training. The current owner uses verbal correction such as "no" and "stop." No food aggression has been noted with Billet; Billet is not isolated when fed and fed with the other dogs in the house. Billet jumps intermittently but it is controlled and as stated previously, he is easily re-directed. The current owner does recommend a home with an enclosed fence because Billet does love the free range and enjoys being outside. Billet has been vaccinated within the last 6 mths. He is not currently taking heart worm prevention. Billet does have a skin tag on his right mid chest/abdominal region, rather large. It does not appear to bother him when I touched or pulled on it, but it should be checked out. Billet has only been with his current owner since August and they are unaware of any known injuries or illnesses at this time.

Other Info: Layla is a 5 year old spayed medium sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is housetrained. Layla's last vaccination was in 2015 and she is not current on heart worm prevention. Layla is being surrendered because the owner has a mix male that instigates arguments with Layla. There is also a new baby in the home and the owner feels this situation is dangerous for the child to be around. During the day, Layla is sometimes crated while inside. At night, she is crated for bed time. The current owners also keep her in her crate over 8 hours while they are at work. She is currently crated in a metal crate. Layla is very afraid and un-socialized. She exhibits extreme fear around adult men. A man and a 10yr old child were present with me for evaluation; Layla did not lunge or bite and has no history of that behavior but you could she that she was fearful. Once we sat and let her calm, She came to trust and let everyone interact with her. She took to the child quickly with all wags. SLOW intro's with adult men needed. I felt no danger, no aggression, just timid and alert. Layla is very sweet in nature. The owners have taken her in for nail to be trimmed twice and they say that the concrete keeps them trim. She gets baths at home and does well. The owner's time is limited and have walked her on occasion. Layla is free to roam in backyard to get her exercise. Layla was not focused with toys or play, but in her natural environment she is known to play well with others. She does enjoy toys and does not show any signs of aggression or possessiveness with her toys. Caution needs to be taken around other dominant males. Layla is energetic and has the capability of being very playful. She's in extremely good shape physically. Layla currently eats Iams dry dog food. Layla sits on command but has not had any other training. Layla does poorly on the leash. The current owners use verbal correction for discipline. She does not have any reaction towards adults or children removing toys or getting close to her food bowl. She has no problems eating with other animals at the same bowl, but - dominant males or females that display as attention hogs can easily start an argument. Layla displays attention issues with petting others and needs focus. Layla exhibits a very large prey drive. She will kill cats on contact. **NO CATS** Layla runs across street to meet other animals walking if she is loose. She does not display aggression towards strange dogs, she has friends in the neighborhood. Layla is a digger. Layla can easily jump a 6.5ft fence. When Layla gets free she will return and sit by the garage door. Layla has no direction and no training. Once she has been taught boundaries and becomes more socialized, she is a sweetheart. She wants and needs to know love.
