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: This is a 3 year old 56 pound neutered fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. This sweet boy was surrendered to the shelter due to escaping his owners yard. He is three years old and a typical playful boxer puppy. He wants to play with every dog he sees. He seems very dog friendly. He is just a super happy, sweet boy. He gave kisses, but we had a hard time keeping him still for pics because he wanted to play with the dogs in the other play yard. I think he thinks he's at daycare. I do believe he will be fine with kids. He didn't jump up and walked fine on the leash. He has no idea his family has dumped him. I hope we are able to help this guy find a better family. A family that will love and care for him forever.

Other Info: **Update2/5: Apollo is still with his owner, but he is out of time, needs a foster home ASAP** Owner Surrender Apollo is a handsome 4 to 5 year old unaltered fawn boy with a black mask with a touch of gray, natural ears, and a docked tail. He is a spunky boy with lots of energy to burn and lots of love to give. He has the most contagious smile that will just light up his future home. He weighs approximately 60 pounds and has the most beautiful Auburn coat. He is up-to-date on vaccines. Apollo has a few swollen teets and needs to be neutered, but besides that is a very healthy boxer boy. Apollo walks great on a leash, and is so sweet and gentle with his seven-month-old sister and four-year-old brother. Apollo knows basic commands and simply loves people, and dogs of all sizes. Bath time is a breeze with this sweet boy. Due to a family move into another family's home, Apollo is spending 12 to 13 hours in a kennel in a bedroom with his fur sister. One of the children in the home is also starting to show signs of being allergic to dogs and it is not healthy for her to be around Apollo. The owner feels that he deserves a home where he can run and play and be a normal boxer. Owner would like for him and his fur sister, BIN 15601, to be placed together.

Other Info: Owner Surrender Delilah is a large sized spayed 3 year old beautiful fawn female Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. She is not deaf. Delilah was very excited to meet us and go outside. She did not jump on us and was excited to have her leash put on. She did great walking on a leash. There was not a lot of room, so she could not take off leash to let her run. She picked a toy from inside to bring out with her. She loves carrying around her stuffed toy with her. I think she'd be fine with kids and bigger dogs. Owner says she is good with other dogs, but not cats. She really loved the older boxer that was in the house with her. I would not put her with small dogs. I was holding a small puppy and I did not feel comfortable putting her down. She was very interested in what I was holding. The owner is surrendering her due to her living situation. She is moving into an apartment and cannot take her with her. Delilah has intestinal problems, potentially boxer colitis. Owner states she has many bowel movements a day. She did have one while we were there. It was loose stool. Owner states she will not have an accident in the house, but she has to be on a specific food and no treats or other food can be given. She is a very proportionate dog, even with her stomach issues. She has pretty white teeth and clean ears. She has 2 small spots behind the front of her legs, from either laying on concrete or in a cage. She seemed to be a very smart girl and would sit on command. I think she'd be easy to train. Heartworm status is negative. She is up to dates on all of her shots. Delilah was a super sweet little Boxer. She will make someone a wonderful companion if they can work with her on her stomach issues. Owner is very sad to be giving her up, but her apartment complex said no.

Other Info: Chopper is a 7 year old small neutered flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. It was discovered a few years ago that daughter was very allergic to Chopper and this family has tried various approaches to keep the dogs because these are very loved pets. However, the only thing that works is to keep the dogs out of the house. This means the dogs are kept in a fenced area -- weather permitting -- with a shelter during the day, and crated in a room at night. They dogs are very unhappy and the neighbors complain about barking. In recent months the owner was laid off and now has a new job requiring travel, which only makes managing time outside more difficult. Chopper is kept in a 1/2 acre fenced area with shelter outside all days when the weather is agreeable. Otherwise he is in a crate inside that he shares with his fur sister. Chopper is good with kids and all people. He is house trained and crate trained, he can go up to 10 hours at a time. It is unknown how he is for bathing or grooming. He never needs nail trims, so it is unknown how he is for them. Chopper runs in his fenced area all day with other boxer Gretchen for exercise. He runs the fence and likes to bark at neighbors. For this reason, Chopper wears a bark collar that shocks him if he continues to bark after the collar emits a warning click. Chopper has great energy. He was very excited because we were visiting. He is not possessive with toys. He eats Kirklands Chicken & Rice, 2 cups a day at singular evening feeding. Chopper went to puppy class. He knows sit and "Box" (which means go to your crate) Pulls a little on the leash per the owner. He is disciplined using verbal correction. Chopper is a sweet submissive dog; likes other dogs and kids. Don't know about cats. He is not up to date on vaccinations and is not current on heart worm prevention. Chopper's eyes were red as if he has an infection or an allergy. It's not cherry eye. Owner said Chopper's ears have hematomas and they would heal by themselves. So Chopper is reported to shake his head alot. (itches?) However, last vet visit was over a year ago and he still has them. Chopper has anxiety if he is alone. He is fine if he has another dog as a companion.

Is s/he safe from euthanasia?: No

Other Info: Update from a volunteer 12/11: I spent 4 days dog sitting Tank. He’s a pretty good dog and just needs additional manners. He has some energy – but he’s 3. He barks a bit, but the sound is not louder than any dog I have ever had. I also did not experience any food aggression. I would recommend that he go to home with another dog friendly dog because he is a follower, which helps due to being deaf. He does have separation anxiety so short stays in a crate would be more ideal. Also, I agree that he would not work in an apartment.

Tank is a 3 year old neutered large sized male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is deaf. He is being surrendered because he has not been trained. He needs to be crated whenever they have company or go out of town with family as they are afraid that he will knock the young children over. When he is crated he has the loud "deaf dog" bark and will not stop barking if he knows people are around. When owners are home is roams the home. When they are away he is crated with his fur sister (In the same crate). He is crated around 7 hours a day during the work week. At night is sleeps on his dog bed in the bedroom. He likes people. He was excited to see me and came right up to me. They have two young children and he does well with them. They do have to watch him closely as the youngest child is an infant. He did well with the younger daughter when I was there. They said that he does well with other dogs also. There is a cat in the home who he plays with. He is house trained and crate trained. He uses a 48" wire crate and is crated with his fur sister when humans are away from the house. They said he is good for baths. He is in serious need of a pawdicure. They said he just pulls away when they attempt to clips his nails. He currently plays with his fur sister and does zoomies in the yard for exercise. They have taken him on walks. Sometimes on walks he decides that he doesn't want to walk anymore and just lays down (little stinker). The current owners describe him as high energy. He plays well with their smaller female dog. If he gets too rough with her she lets him know. He has shown no signs of aggression with people or toys. He currently eats dry Pedigree. If his fur sibling does not finish hers, he will go and eat hers too. It didn't sound like they are able to stop him after he starts eating her food. Tank has never had any type of training and knows no commands. He does pull when he is on the leash. They "pop" him on the bottom when he is being bad. I got the impression they were scared to take food away from him. When he is finished with his, he then moves to his fur sister's bowl and eats hers. This is why he is so overweight. Behavior adopters or foster homes would need to be aware of is loud barking when he wants to be by his people. He is not current on vaccinations and is not on heart worm prevention. He has never had any training and they were unaware how to teach hand signals to a deafie. He does have separation anxiety when away from his people. He is crated with is fur sister. He will bark loudly when he is crated and he knows his people are home. Tank has never had any illnesses or injuries.

Other Info: Boomer is a 5-6 year old unaltered medium sized brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. His current care taker managed to talk a neighbor into letting her have the boxer due to negligence, breeding, and the fact Boomer kept getting out and sleeping under her carport. She wishes to keep him but can't afford heartworm treatment as he tested positive at her vet. Boomer is now kept inside, he greeted me with wags and was very loving with a timid approach. Once I sat down, he was all cuddles and licks. He's very cautious, and afraid he is doing something wrong. Tucks and lays down in a submissive manner. So ever gentle and kind. Boomer wants to please. Current owner was with her 2 year old granddaughter and Boomer seemed to love her. Very laid back atmosphere. Boomer is willing to greet anyone with a friendly face. He is very sweet. It is unknown if he is house trained, but he has not had any accidents in the house. It is unknown if he is crate trained. Unknown how he is for groomimg, but I see no problem, he is very submissive and gentle. It is unknown how he is for nail trims. Current owner has kept Boomer inside with her other small animals. There has been no outdoor walks or activities. Boomer has gotten along with every animal he has come into contact with so far. For precautions: Boxer has been fed separately from others, so it's unknown how he would react. Boomer is lost and confused as to where he needs to be. As soon as he becomes established and no longer afraid to be reprimanded, he will be a wonderful family member. Boomer was very gentle, and laid back, but I see a very playful Boxer hidden behind that spirit. He wants to be loved. He is not possessive with toys. He currently eats dry Beneful. Boomer is not picky, he's been hungry and will eat anything. Boomer is so cute!! He sits on command and was constantly wanting to shake my hand even when not asked. Adorable. He laid down for tummy rubs. His leash walking behavior is excellent. No correction needed since current care taker has had Boomer. It was stated that Boomer has cleared their 8ft fence. It was seen by her son, but not in person. Boomer has not taken off, does not run off, and returns when called. Possible he feels lost and jumped due to nervousness and looking for his own yard but seems happy to always return to this owners carport. It is unknown how Boomer would react to someone taking a rawhide or food bowl from him. The owner does not wish to chance anything, she is just happy Boomer is a sweetheart and gets along with all her other dogs. Unknown how he is with cats, as she has none. Boomer will be a very playful Boxer after he stops fearing. He is so loving and has lots of love to give. I believe Boomer was not treated well and will learn trust once established. I don't think he would hurt anyone, he is just a love Bug! He is up to date on vaccinations and is heart worm positive. Nothing alarming has been noticed that a foster home or adopter would need to be aware of. Boomer has been left alone in the home and has not destroyed anything. There are plants all along the windows and Boomer has not even bothered them once. Boomer is known for stealing the blankets off the beds. That's all ..:) Note: Boomer will not walk through an open door unless you enter first, he is too scared. Once you walk through, he will come. Boomer possibly has tape worms according to current caretaker who claims to have seen them a couple of times. He is under weight but looks and acts healthy. No lumps, no bumps, clean shiny coat, no tags, ears look good, eyes look good, he's showing little signs of a grey muzzle. Teeth need cleaning. Possible back tooth decay. Bad breath. Front teeth are all good. Overall Boomer is a beautiful boxer.

Other Info: Rocco is a 2 year old small neutered fawn male with natural ears and a natural tail. Rocco was adopted from a shelter in June 2014 when he was 8 months old because the teen daughter wanted him. However there are other dogs in the house and the daughter is not walking or playing with Rocco. So the decision has been made that Rocco deserves a family that will offer him more attention. Rocco is allowed to roam inside; he has displayed separation anxiety when confined in a closed room alone by tearing the window blinds, Rocco is fearful of crates. The owner says Rocco is not destructive roaming in the house but she has learned to secure TV remotes and eyeglasses because he will chew such things. He is allowed to freely roam in the house all day while his owner is at work. Rocco is a dog with a public personality and a home personality. With strangers he is fearful and cowers. If he must be in the room with strangers he will try to be in his person's lap or hide behind them; he will also tremble. But, if home with just his family, Rocco is joyful and very, very playful. He likes babies and he reportedly does warm up to regular visitors over time. He more easily warms up to women but has become okay with males visitors -- his owner's father and adult son. He is very playful with the other 2 dogs in the home; they are very small dogs and he is submissive to them and all other animals. He is house trained and not crate trained. He displays anxiety in confined spaces. Rocco tolerates bathing without complaint. They have never trimmed his nails but they look fine. Rocco plays in the house and yard with the owner's other dogs for exercise. He loves to go on walks but is walked very infrequently. He has been to dog parks and he is a little shy with other dogs and avoids humans who try to meet him. Rocco was frightened and trembled during my visit. Eventually he did allow me to pet him but he really wanted to be in his owner's lap. His owner did toss a toy and he appeared to want to play but did not want to venture away from his owner's side while I was there, However, his owner reports that he is extremely playful and wants to run and play with the other dogs. He also would love to play ball and run. He has many toys, he allows other dogs (tiny little dogs) to take toys away from him. He is not possessive at all with toys or food. He eats Purina Pro Plan - 2 cups at one evening serving. No training, he knows "sit". Reported to walk well on a leash, no pulling. He is disciplined using verbal correction. He would allow anything to be taken from him, according to his owner he has never displayed aggression. There are a couple of issues a foster home would need to be aware of. Rocco is just out of puppyhood and needs playmates -- especially to help him learn how to be a confident dog. He has separation anxiety if he is alone -- another reason for needing another dog. In addition, Rocco can jump over a 6 foot wood fence. He has done this when the owner hasn't let him inside when he was ready to come back in, he just jumped the fence and came around the front of the house to the front door. He is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. Rocco is going to need another dog and lots of patience. He is very timid. He is a good looking dog. Rocco is afraid of all strangers and even more afraid of men than females. He is not afraid of thunderstorms. He can be timid with dogs who rush to meet him when out walking on a leash. Rocco is healthy and has no illnesses or injuries the owner is aware of.

Other Info: Gunner is a large sized 2.5 year old neutered flashy fawn male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. His owner wants to surrender him. The owner seems a bit overwhelmed between her toddler, working and going to school full time. Gunner is a fairly needy dog and requires a lot of attention. He is also in desperate need of training and the owner feels she cannot dedicate the time and energy he would need for training. Gunner is crated when the owner is away. When they are home he gets free run of the house. He is a little timid at first with new people but warms up quickly.  Other than being a little rambunctious with little ones, he is good with kids. He is house and crate trained. Gunner is used to being crated with his Maltese sister for more than 8 hours a day. He goes to the groomer for bathing and nail trims and they have not reported any issues. He gets occasional walks and play time with the Maltese. He seems fairly high energy, but that could be from lack of exercise. He has a typical play style. Eats Diamond dry food, twice a day. Gunner has only had training at home. He knows sit. He walks decent on a leash but does pull at times. Gunner is verbally redirected or patted on his rear when needed. Gunner has had different reactions to things being taken away. He has bit the owner (no broken skin) and also had no reaction. Unsure of what he would do to a stranger. He needs training and boundaries. When I tried to work with him on some training he went to his owner and began to ignore me. His last vaccinations were done within the last 6 months. He gets HWP every month. Although Gunner is a great dog, he needs work. I truly feel if the owner did not have a toddler and was planning more kids, she would not be surrendering him. She has a lot on her plate and knows training requires a considerable amount of time and dedication. Gunner does not get along with her parent's bulldog, but has gotten along with other dogs he's met. He likes to play and the owner feels he doesn't get along with the bulldog because she is moody and would only play when she wanted to and how she wanted to. He was going to be adopted by a different family and their dog tried attacking Gunner and he did not react to that. Nothing the owner is aware of makes Gunner act differently than normal. He has a large scar that runs down length of his back.
