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.

This is an older (5?) medium sized brindle female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. From the first time I walked in this little girl was very nervous and scared but she was full of love and kisses once she warmed up to me. If there was any outside noises then she became very scared and put her tail back down. She was very calm the entire time did not make a peep. All she needs is love and attention and she will be the happiest girl. This little girl did not jump even after I invited her to jump on me. She would be good with any age kids. When I got there she was in a kennel with another dog. I'm not sure if they came in together or not but they were cuddled up together. As she was walking around the other dogs back to her kennel, she was more scared of being at the shelter then the other dogs. With her being so nervous, it was hard for her to concentrate on commands. She was reacting to every little noise. Unable to test how she reacts with cats. She has a very clean coat, clean teeth, clean ears. The shelter heart worm test was positive. I was unable to determine if she has been spayed or not. Overall she looks very good.

This is a medium sized 7 year old unaltered fawn female Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. She is not deaf. She was not too interested in the shelter worker or evaluator. She was too busy smelling where other dogs had been. She didn't mind being stopped and petted. No problem with examining teeth, ears or nails. No kisses or nub wags. Not jumpy. She pulled on leash. I think she would be good with children. She totally ignored the barking and growling in kennels as we walked by. She didn't show any interest in a smaller dog brought to the exercise area next to us. She did not follow any commands. I was unable to cat test. She had one small spot of missing hair. I saw callous' on all legs. Her hair is dry. No noticeable lumps, bumps or tags. This sweet girl had me in tears when I left. As I was leaving she jumped up in her kennel and whined. This baby was a owner surrender to the shelter on 10/15 WITH THE REQUEST THAT SHE BE EUTHANIZED BECAUSE OF HER AGE. She has had multiple litters of puppies, and not cared for. She needs groceries. The vet would not euthanize right away, and wanted to give her a chance. Doubtful she will make adoptions. Rescue is her best hope of survival.

This boy is a sweetheart. He is about 6-7 years old and is very handsome. He wiggled his nub at every dog he saw including the ones that were charging the kennel and barking loudly so I do believe he will be dog friendly. He has a small growth on his belly, but other than that he appears healthy. He does need a neuter. This boy has definitely spent a lot of time outdoors as he has some large callouses from lying on concrete. He did not appear to know any commands, but it may have been our environment. He did come when called, but didn't know sit or stay. He let me check his mouth, ears, and feet without a fuss. He leaned into me while I pet him and told him what a good boy he was. He looked at me with the sweetest eyes and begged me to get him out of there and take him home. He is dreaming of a home with family that will speak to him with kindness, rub his ears and belly, ensure he has food and water, and allow him to sleep inside on something soft. I have a feeling he would love to cuddle with a human. Will you help answer this sweet boys prayer? He is off hold at the shelter on 10/28.

Star is a 5 year old spayed small pound fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Star is a silly, happy-go-lucky girl. Star was surrendered to the shelter by her owners because she became possessive of the new baby. She was very excited to see the shelter worker when she was taken from the kennel. When the dogs in the lobby barked she got a little over excited but still responded to the shelter worker's voice. Once outside, she ran around and was having a blast. Despite her excitement, she did not jump on me or the shelter worker unless invited. She seems very respectful of human space so I think she would be fine with kids. She supposedly lived with kids in her previous home. Star is kenneled with a younger male lab and has not had any issues. The shelter staff said she has been good with all dogs she has met. Star sat and came on command but did not respond to any other commands. She pulled quite a bit on the leash when the shelter walked her around. I was not able to cat test her. Star has thinning fur on her back, sides and hind legs. She also has a sore on her left hip that needs some attention. Her owners stated she is spayed. This is a very sweet girl who is adorable. I think she is just what our adopters are looking for in a female boxer. She's silly, energetic, and curious but still has good manners. The shelter states she is 60 pounds, chipped, up to date on shots and HW negative.

Other Info: ***SUPER URGENT-IN ISOLATION WITH URI***

He will be EU'd pretty quick at this shelter since he is sick. We do not have a lot of time to save him, maybe a day. This is a 4 year old unaltered flashy fawn male with natural ears and a natural tail. His teeth and ears are clean. Super wiggly boy with a HUGE meathead. Curious with all other animals in isolation, especially cats, so possibly good with both dogs and cats. His tail was wagging and no hair up. Unable to kid test, but was not jumpy at all. However, he is VERY muscular. If he is more jumpy when he feels better, he will have alot of power behind his legs. He has a horrible case of KC. Coughing bad. Minimal snot and not colored. Otherwise, appears healthy. Did not show any signs, but it was hard to keep his attention with all the coughing.

Other Info: ***SUPER URGENT FULL SHELTER EU ANYTIME***

This is a 2 year old unaltered, medium size fawn male. He has natural ears, a docked tail, and is not deaf. This is a very happy go lucky boy who loves to give hugs and kisses. He loves to jump on adults and give hugs but when a child came into the shelter, approx. 5, he sat right in front of him and put his paw up on his chest. This boy would do ok with children over the age of 5. With adults it is a free for all but he tries very hard to listen and the shelter is working with him on the word "off". He is fine with other dogs, he wants to play and be friends with everyone. The shelter has taught him sit and down in a matter of a week and a half. He pulls a lot on the leash and they are currently working with him on his leash manners. He is very curious about cats and cannot understand why they hiss and spat at him but he does not bark or attempt to play with them. He just wants to make them his friends. His HW status is unknown. He is at a decent weight. He has what appears to be some type of cyst on his left rear paw on the outer edge. This fella would not last long in foster care, he is exactly what our adopters are looking for. He is a blank slate but so very willing to learn and give you kisses in return. He loves to play with toys and does not care if you take them away and toss them for him. He is more than willing to take off to play fetch he, just doesn't quite understand he is supposed to bring it back. The shelter said when they take him outside to do his business he likes to take his time and find the perfect spot and if you don't give him enough time he will do his business in his run.

Other Info: **King is in a rural shelter and needs out quick***King is a 6 year old medium sized altered flashy brindle male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. He is not deaf. He was very friendly and not jumpy at all. He was calm and gave me soft kisses. He did notice what was going on around him, but not very interested in it. He is soo super sweet :-) He seems quite normal, just wants a loving home to call his own. My best guess is he would be great with any age children. They had him in the same kennel with another dog, which he was very pleasant with. When we walked by the other kennels, as the other doggies were vigorously barking, he payed little attention to them as well as the shelter worker's personal dogs that were out to roam free. He didn't know any commands, that may be because he was quietly excited. We walked around the shelter grounds several times and near the road and he did very well on the leash. No cat test done. He has a few scars above one eye and a rash on his chest that may be from rubbing up against something. HW status and any other health concerns unknown. He could use a little more meat on himself. This guy is just as sweet and gentle as can be. They didn't know much about him as he was picked up by animal control. Let's find this guy a home as loving and sweet as he is.

Other Info: Frank is an 8 to 10 year old large sized fawn unaltered male with natural ears and docked tail He is not deaf. Frank was very happy ,calm and not jumpy. I got lots of nub wiggles once I got him to sit with me. At first he was only interested in roaming and smelling for the other dogs. Seemed a little timid at first. I think he would be okay with children since he wasn't jumpy and seemed pretty calm overall. We walked him by the yard that the other dogs were in. He did not bark or seem aggressive. (even though the others were barking at him) He did leave his mark on a few of them through the fence. He did not respond to any commands. He pulled slightly on the leash. We walked him through the cat room and he did not react to any of the cats in the kennels. HW status unknown. He is in pretty bad shape. Lots of cuts, scratches and a few open wounds. His left eye is blueish/grey in color. Not sure if he is blind or has a cataract. His hold is up on 10-31 at 10:00am. The shelter has a high adoption rate but with his condition and age it is possible he will be bumped up to the EU list ahead of others. Very sweet boy! I would take him if my female foster were spayed and HW free!

Other Info: Diesel is a 9 year old large neutered brindle male with natural ears and docked tail. The owner is surrendering him because her father has just been admitted into hospice care for a terminal illness. They have 3 dogs (Diesel and 2 females) and she will not be able to care for all of them by herself. The dogs have been in a few altercations, none of which required a vet visit. However, because of this they are practicing separation. He is given free rein in certain areas of the house away from the other dogs when owners are home and away. He does have a crate but they do not use it other than for discipline (which is not often). He is very friendly, social, and pleasant around all adults and kids. He greeted me right away with kisses and nubby wags. He likes to investigate new people but in a social way. No red flags here. He is house and crate trained but they do not like to crate him. He loves baths. Owners said if you'd let him he would jump in the tub with you. No issues with grooming or nail trims. No structured exercise but has free rein to play and run in the backyard. For an older guy he had a lot of spunk when we brought out a ball. Typical boxer behavior. Very attentive to commands, especially when the ball was involved. He did jump a few times to get the ball from his owner, but when corrected listened upon the first command. He lay at my feet the entire visit and pawed me to pet him. Since he is older, it does not seem that he makes the first move to be active and play. He can rough play when he's really excited. No issues with toys. He eats Old Roy. No formal training, but they have definitely spent time with him to ensure he is obedient. He knows sit, stay, come, lay down, shake, and speak. He walks with you. He might pull on the leash if he sees another dog or person out of excitement. For discipline he is sent to his crate. He will let you take food, toys, rawhide, ect. away without any issues. He will beg to have them back. No issues other than what was already disclosed. I'm wondering if the fact that the owner is terminally ill caused any altercations with the dogs. Diesel is the only male dog in the house. He is a protector and likes to be aware of his surroundings, as well as others knowing he is there. He likes to do a perimeter check when outside at night. He will bark along each side of the fence to let everyone know where he is. Maybe he is just an old grump or has an underlying health issue (the lumps and bumps). (note by SC: In his photos, his coat has dark patches which reminds me of hypothyroidism.) His last vaccinations were over 3 years ago and he is not on HWP. Diesel is such a big baby! He greeted me at the door with lots of kisses and nubby wags. I sat down on the floor with him and he immediately crawled in my lap for some love. Diesel has been with his owners since he was 8 weeks old. I truly believe that if the owner's dad was not terminally ill, they would not be begging us for help. He is older, so his energy level is much more relaxed than a younger dog. He spent most of the visit at my feet and pawed at me to pet him. He does not have any issues with any other dogs upon first meeting outside the home. He is very social and wants to play. Diesel has about 4 growths on his skin that look like moles or skin tags. Two are on his chest, one on his back, and one on his right hind leg. He also has a lump on his chest that is squishy to the touch, but owners say it has gotten firmer as of lately. It's about the size of a golf ball and can be seen in the video I sent. He has not been taken to a vet to determine what any of these are. Despite the lack in vetting, this dog has been loved and cared for by his family. It sounds like they are doing the best they can right now to just get by. I would have taken him home with me if not for my alpha female! Seems to be the perfect dog for someone who is just looking for a companion that is already trained and socialized. He does not need any training and is very attentive. One of the smartest dogs I've ever been around.

Other Info: JJ is a 4 year old large sized unaltered fawn male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. "JJ" originally belonged to the owner's son, who moved out of state in February. The new owner and his wife are moving into Dallas to be closer to their jobs and they plan to get an apartment. The current owner does not like animals inside his home. JJ lives strictly outdoors at all times. Prior to February when "JJ" lived with his former owner he was kept indoors with free range in the house. "JJ" has no problems getting along with anyone of any age. He also gets along with new dogs. Since he is a jumper he would not be good with small children, even though he lived with small children prior to February. "JJ" does not like feline friends. He is housetrained. He has never been in a crate. "JJ" has never had a bath or a nail trim since living with new owner. "JJ" lives in a 15x15 fenced run 24/7. He and his companion are let out to run with the other dogs twice a day when the male owner is home; which is only on the weekends. "JJ" has a lot of energy. He does not play rough but does bounce/jump around a lot. He did play with his companion as well as the other two dogs that live there. He is not possessive with toys. He is free fed Pedigree dry dog food. He was taught to sit and shake from his previous owner. His behavior on a leash is excellent. For discipline, owners use a verbal "no" with the hand sign for down. His jumping is all he ever needs discipline for. There are no issues with high value items being taken away from him. The jumping is an ongoing thing and "JJ" is aware that he is not supposed to jump so I believe that he can be broken of this. "JJ" has learned to open the gate to his pen by jumping on it and boxing at it. The owner has to prop ties on the gate as well as use a wire to secure it. Also, "JJ" is a car chaser. Cats will be chased down by this boy so it is best they just not be in the picture. His last vaccinations were two years go. "JJ" and "Tyson" (also being surrendered – BIN 14656) have been together for almost their entire lives. "JJ" was adopted when he was 6 months old to be "Tyson's" buddy. They are each other’s opposites and for that reason in itself I hope that these two boys are not taken away from each other. "JJ" is a fun loving boy. He does not know a stranger and as long as you are not a cat he will get along with you. He loves to ride in cars, as well as chase them. He is very gentle when taking treats and that is about the only time he will slow down. He did live as an inside dog for most of his life so I am sure it will not take much time for him to get back into the hang of that life style. He will probably be your best friend for just letting him be by your side. He currently he lives in the country where gun shots and thunder storms are normal. Neither affects him. When we drove up and approached his run he did not even bark at us, just nub wags and he was jumping on the fence to be let out. He is slightly underweight and I can tell he is dealing with fleas.

Other Info: Tyson is a 4 year old average sized unaltered brindle male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. "Tyson" originally belonged to the owner's son, who moved out of state in February. The new owner and his wife are moving into Dallas to be closer to their jobs and they plan to get an apartment. The current owner does not like animals inside his home. Tyson lives strictly outdoors at all times. Prior to February when "Tyson" lived with his former owner he was kept indoors with free range in the house. "Tyson" gets along with everyone but feline friends. He does not jump and is rather laid back, especially compared to his companion. He is house trained but has never been in a crate. "Tyson" has never had a bath or a nail trim since living with new owner. "Tyson" does LOVE the water. He will lie in baby pools, go for swims in real pools, and likes to be sprayed with the hose. "Tyson" lives in a 15x15 fenced run 24/7. He and his companion are let out to run with the other dogs twice a day when the male owner is home; which is only on the weekends. "Tyson" is low key and just likes to follow the other dogs around. He is very loving and he liked to give the other dogs kisses. Entertainment to "Tyson" would be to go for a swim. He knows how to climb a ladder to get into a pool and will help himself. He also likes to lie in baby pools. Tyson is not possessive with toys. He is allowed to free feed on Pedigree. He was taught to sit and shake from his previous owner. His behavior on a leash is excellent. "Tyson" never has to be corrected. If he did then it would be with verbal and hand cues. There are no issues with any high value items being taken away from him. "Tyson" has no real issues at all. He will follow his companion when he chases after cars. He does not like cats and will chase them. His last vaccinations and HWP were two years ago. "Tyson” and "JJ" (BIN 14655 – also being surrendered) have been together for almost their entire lives. "Tyson" was purchased from a breeder at 6 weeks of age then "JJ" was adopted when they were both about 6 months old. They are each other’s opposites and for that reason in itself I hope that these two boys not be taken away from each other. "Tyson" is just a laid back sweetheart. He likes to be around his dog friends as well as human friends. Car rides and water are his two loves, with butt scratches not far behind. He did live as an inside dog for most of his life so I am sure it will not take much time for him to get back into the hang of that life style. He just wants to be a part of the family again. "Tyson" is already micro-chipped but his previous owner has all of the paper work. Currently he lives in the country where gun shots and thunder storms are normal. Neither affects him. He did not even bark when we drove up. "Tyson" has very thick, dry skin on his head, rear end, and all four of his feet. He has a very thin, dull hair coat and his mucous membranes are very pale. I can tell he is dealing with very bad flea allergies. He seemed to be very congested with snot in his nose. You could hear it when he breathed. He also has opaque, pencil eraser sized dots on both of his eyes. When we approached his run I could tell he did not feel that great. He did not get excited like his companion did. He just sat there. He did liven up when he came out to play and meet us.

Other Info: ***Update 9/20: Owner still has her, but needs to surrender her soon. She will let us know if she goes to a shelter so we can try to help from there*** 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.

Other Info: Lola is a 6 year old overweight spayed flashy fawn female Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. Owners adopted Lola and a male Pit mix about 8 months ago. Lola recently started showing aggression towards other dogs and has scrapped with their male. Owner now alternates free time inside house between Lola and her brother. Lola is usually kept inside, crated when owner is away and her brother is kept outside. Lola is housetrained and crate trained - 9 hours - wire crate. Lola does fine in her crate and will stay there all day while owner is away. Once owner comes home, they alternate the inside time and usually put Lola outside. Lola was fine with the volunteers. She did not jump when the volunteers entered the home, but Mom had hold of her collar so that she wouldn't bolt out the door. Lola was all wiggles and showed no aggression towards the volunteers or at any time during our visit. Owner said Lola loves getting baths and does fine for grooming. Doesn't like you to touch her feet, but allows you to trim nails. For exercise, Lola plays in the yard and goes for walks. Average energy and typical Boxer play style. Not real boisterous, but will paw at you for petting. Lola doesn't really play with toys. Recently switched to Rachel Ray grain free from Walmart. Previously fed Victor grain free. Knows sit, down & come. Walks with you, but pulls a little on leash when Lola she wants to explore something further. Verbal correction. She has never reacted to them taking food or a rawhide away, she just lets them like it is no big deal. Lola doesn't play with toys. Recently became aggressive towards other animals and owner makes it sound as if it is only when the other animal is around owner. Lola seems to be jealous of other animals when they are around female owner. Last vaccinations in March when adopted Lola from shelter. Hasn't had heartworm prevention in a few months. Lola showed no aggression towards us whatsoever. Owner put Lola in crate and let the male in the house so that we could see her reaction and she was all nub wagging through the crate. Owner really wants to keep Lola and her brother, but does not know how to work through this recent aggression towards other dogs. Owner is concerned for her daughters safety as they had a hard time breaking up the last tiff between the two dogs. I wish that I had more confidence in my skills, as I would've liked to see how Lola reacted towards the other dog if the owner wasn't involved. She seemed just as sweet as could be. Owner is willing to try anything and is open to suggestions, but can't afford a professional trainer. Nothing worries Lola and she loves to ride in the car. No known injuries or illnesses.

Other Info: Wrigley is a little taller than average 70 pound neutered fawn male with natural ears and docked tail. His owners want to surrender him because they have three young boys and their after school activities keep the family too busy now. They feel Wrigley deserves to be with a family that can spend more time with him as he loves being with people. When owner is home, Wrigley stays inside free to roam house. When owner is away, Wrigley stays mostly inside, but they may leave him out in the yard if the weather is nice. He was not visible when we first entered the home, as they closed the interior doors when we arrived and he happened to be in one of the rooms. When he did come out he just pranced over to us wiggling his tail and snuggling into us for petting. He did not jump and seemed very gentle upon greeting him. He is house trained and rings a bell when he needs to go out for potty break. They don't crate, but when he goes by their parent's house he is in a wire crate. He doesn't care for the crate, but will go in when told. He gets baths outside with a water hose. He loves the water and will play in the sprinklers, or anything that has water coming out of it. Owner has never trimmed his nails. For exercise he plays with the family, their Chihuahua, or in the backyard. High energy - loves to play ball, chase his tail and the laser light. He was having a blast, but could accidentally knock over small children in his excitement. Wrigley spent a lot of time chasing his tail, but the owner said he mostly does it for extended lengths of time when strangers are around. Did not seem toy possessive. Eats Beneful brand dry dog food. He knew sit when they first got him at age 1 1/2. They have taught him shake and down. Owner says he pulls a little on the leash. Owner uses verbal correction, but they really never had to discipline him. If they tell him "no", he understands what that means. Owner said he may have lightly swatted him on the tail once. Owner says he will let you take food or toys away from him without any issues. He jumps at fence and barks when he hears people, or other dogs on the other side. He has gotten along with all the dogs he has met except for a neighbors Great Dane. Not current on vaccinations. Last vetting done in January 2013. Not on heartworm prevention. Last given in March 2013. The volunteers did not observe anything that concerned them about his behavior. Wrigley was very friendly and leaned in for petting. He did get excited and jump up on their lap to give kisses, but got down when they said "no". He is protective of the kids if he hears a male at the door. Not aggressive, just positions himself between the kids and the stranger until he knows they are okay. No known illnesses. Has some chipped teeth and a soft squishy mass on upper right portion of left hind leg. Owner said it just appeared one day a few weeks ago and just keeps growing. He let the volunteers touch, squeeze and feel it with no reaction.

Other Info: ******URGENT HW+ IN FULL SHELTER***

*** Update 10/31: Tag email has been sent to shelter, waiting on confirmation, This is a 2 to 3 year old medium sized unaltered fawn male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. The shelter kennel card has him listed as 1 but his teeth had some tartar and the shelter asst. guessed 2 to 3. He is not deaf. This handsome boy was very nervous and shaking initially. He warmed up though, and seemed to feel more at ease within about 10 minutes or so. He was very gentle when given treats and it was evident he wanted to get physically close once he was more comfortable. He acted very timid when walking next to a barking dog. He doesn't have much confidence but comes across as a total SWEETHEART! He wasn't jumpy, just stretched up to hug the shelter asst. after about 20 minutes of spending time with us. He appears to have a very open heart, if he could just catch a break. He's not jumpy by nature, and seems to be a lovebug. He comes across as a shy guy who needs some confidence building. This handsome guy was cowering when he walked past the PB who was barking up a storm. Otherwise, he had no reactions. He doesn't appear to be trained or know basic commands. There wasn't a cat test done. I didn't see any lumps or bumps, and the shelter does not conduct HW testing as a general rule. I would imagine this guy will 'fly off the shelf' once he's given a chance! He's skinny right now with ribs and backbone showing, but his temperament is so sweet. He really just needs someone to lend him the time and energy for confidence building and nurturing his spirit. He's incredibly good-looking, too!
