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

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


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

Other Info: ***SUPER URGENT EU IMMINENT, MUST BE TAGGED BY 7AM SUNDAY***

This is a small unaltered white male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. He is super sweet. As soon as he saw us from his kennel, he sat down and was wiggling all over. He was scared to come out of the kennel, scared to walk through the shelter and scared to walk outside. I just scooped him up and carried him which he was totally fine with. He only weighs 44 lbs. When we got outside he was happy to receive love and pets. He loved getting his head and,chin scratched. He gave very sweet kisses on my hand. I believe he would be fine with children. He is very small and very sweet. He was scared to death of all of the barking dogs. He stopped dead in his tracks. He did not know any commands. Unable to perform cat test. His teeth are nice and clean and his eyes are nice and bright. There is some staining on his eyes. No obvious lumps or bumps. His coat is very thick. He has missing hair and sores on the top of his ears. He needs a good bath. His head tilts to the right on occasion but he does hold it up straight. He did react and turn to me when I whistled. I did witness him tilt his head to the right and walk in 4 circles then he stopped and sat down. I did not see an odd gait in his back legs when he was walking. As soon as he stopped walking, his backend started sagging and he would move his feet to help him stand.

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

This is a small sized 10 year old unaltered fawn female Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. She is not deaf. She is terrified in the shelter. She is not jumpy at all. I think she would be awesome with all children if her behavior outside the shelter is calm and not jumpy. She had no reaction to the dogs in the kennels but they brought a rotty puppy out and she just glared at it. She was too afraid to respond to training commands. No cat test was available. She has a few teats that are huge and need to be looked at as well ad a few rather large tags. Her teeth are in really bad shape and the shelter worker said they are feeding her soft wet food. This beautiful girl was scared to death. She shook the whole time I had her out. She walked well on a leash but the shelter worker had to pick her up to take her back to her kennel. She is a very sweet older lady who does not understand what is going on. She gave kisses but did not jump or even show any interest in anything other than the door. She shook the whole time so bad she could barely stand. I hated to leave her. She needs some food and her teeth are in poor shape so I think that may have contributed to her lack of weight. She really needs our help.

Other Info: ***URGENT***

Dixie is a 1 year old spayed small sized white female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. This tiny little girl was very eager to get outside to potty! I think she may be house trained. The shelter indicated that she was rehomed twice by previous owners but she does not like other dogs and will pick fights. She walked past barking lunging dogs without issues though. She seems very sweet and is calm. I think she would be fine because she is not jumpy and let me touch her feet, legs, ears, teeth without any issues at all. No kids present so this is an assumption. She did not react walking past kennels at all but has been rehomed twice by owner for fighting with other dogs. So, she should be considered not dog friendly. She can hear and knows sit very well. For a young girl, she is quite calm and well mannered. She did not react to cats, but they were in kennels so not a good test. She has a pea sized lump on her vulva. Teeth are beautifully white, clean ears, long toe nails. She is very petite and so cute!!

Other Info: ***Update 6/21: Brentley is starting to get antsy in the kennel due to how long he has been at the shelter. The sooner he can be pulled, the better.*** Brentley is a 4 to 5 year old average sized unaltered white male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. This boy was jumpy and just wanted to sniff around. I saw no aggressive behavior towards either of us. He is very strong. I tried to get his attention with a treat, but he said no thank you. I would not put him with children at this point because of his jumping and strength. The shelter would not allow me to test how he was with other dogs, but said he was fine with the dogs kenneled next to him. I saw no signs of training. No cat test performed. Shelter does no heartworm testing . Saw no bumps or lumps. He is a little on the thin side and one small cut on right leg. He has been at the shelter a month. I just think he need to learn some manners. Shelter guessed his weight around 50 pounds.

Other Info: Daisy Johnson is a medium sized spayed white 7 year old female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is possibly deaf. This girl is very friendly and playful. She gave kisses right away. She will probably do well with older kids; not younger though due to possible deafness. She is playful and non-aggressive with other dogs. She sat for us but not much else by command; there was a lot going on at the shelter at the time. She was non-reactive to the cats; she just wanted to sniff the kittens in their cages. This girl has a few scraps on her elbows, dirty ears and pink eyes. She is heart worm negative and her rabies vaccination is up to date.

Additional info from the shelter: Originally she was brought in as a stray from the landlord of an apartment complex because they believed she was abandoned there. Yesterday, the owners came up and surrendered her to us. Her owners were in a major accident leaving both in critical condition and they are unable to care for her any longer. She is 7 years old and was born on April 1st. She is a papered purebred. (he does not have the papers with him) and has been an indoor dog her whole life as she lives with them in an apartment. He said he believes she is hard of hearing but is not completely deaf as she still responds to some noises, commands, etc. She has been around children of all ages, dogs, and cats with no problems. They said she is a great dog who just wants to be with her people and does not have an aggressive bone in her body. she is not destructive when left alone and does fine in a crate, but is not always needed, and is housebroken. He did say that she sun burns easily if they go for long walks during the day.

Sex: Male

Is s/he safe from euthanasia?: No

Other Info: Shiro is a 1 to 2 year old unaltered medium sized white male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. He was calm and sweet. Shiro hopped up and gave me kisses. He didn't pull on the leash while he was standing for pictures. I think he would be okay with kids 6 and older. Although the shelter card said "Does not like other dogs," a shelter worker liked his kisses and decided to test with a recently spayed female. She had Shiro in the outdoor play yard and let a recently spayed female Pibble in the same yard from the opposite area. She came right up to Shiro and he ignored her (didn't even sniff her). NOTE: The lady who found Shiro said he didn't like her dog (don't know age/breed/sex so this statement can't be put into context). I asked him to Sit using a hand signal (no treat) and he did. He was a little pully on the leash and the shelter worker had put a body harness on him (because he was coughing when he pulled). The shelter worker said he showed interest in the cats, but no aggression. His ears were a little dirty but this boy is perfect. No lumps, bumps, scars, missing hair. Heart worm status unavailable at this time. He is in medical isolation because he was coughing while on the leash but his eyes are clear, he has no nasal discharge and the only cough I heard was while he was on the slip lead. I agree with the shelter worker that the cough is from pressure on his neck, not an illness. He is perfect and mild mannered. Because he is young and so sweet, I think he'll go fast. He gave great kisses.

Other Info: Hurley is a 2 to 3 year old small sized unaltered white male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. This little guy seemed very friendly. Just so happy to be rubbed on and loved on. I saw no aggressive behavior. He was a little jumpy, but I think he was just happy. I think a little older children would be fine once he learns some basic manners. Shelter said he seemed fine with the dogs next to him. They would not allow me to test him with other dogs. I did get him to sit on third try with a treat. It was a small area, but he did let me walk him with a little pulling. No cat test was performed. I saw no bumps or lumps. The shelter does not do any testing for heart worms. He was shedding quite a bit, but I think that was due to stress. This sweet guy is very thin. They did say they were giving him extra food to try to put some weight on him. He has small spots of brown on ears . They guessed his weight 35ish pounds.

Other Info: Update 5/5: She has given birth to 7 puppies at the shelter. She will stay until they are weaned. The shelter has adopters for the puppies. This is a medium sized unaltered 3 year old white female with natural ears and docked tail. She is not deaf. The shelter has this girl's name listed as Attie, but her real name Allie. There was already another Allie in the shelter. Allie is a more energetic than her friend Kratos. She has quite a bit of boxer energy and gave me a boxer hug. She seemed to be fine with the 4 year old child in the house. Allie gets along with other dogs at the shelter. I did see her get barky with a little dog in the next kennel. The shelter worker said that the little dog next to her was a trouble maker and she moved the dog to another kennel while I was there. Allie had been out playing with another dog in the yard earlier and there was no aggression. She did not seem to know any commands, but did fine on a leash. No cat test. I evaluated Allie outside and the kitties are kept inside. No real lumps or bumps. The shelter worker said she is just coming out of being in heat and I saw a bit of swelling. She is HW+. She also had a few ticks and could use a bath. Allie was an owner surrender with Kratos (BIN 16144). The owners told the shelter she was getting out of a fence, a broken fence, while she was in heat. She was surrendered due to the fact that there was a new baby in the family.

Other Info: Roxy is an 11 year old larger sized spayed flashy fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because the owner's husband is having a kidney transplant and family will be gone for 12+ weeks. They are unable to care for her at this time and are not interested in a long term foster. Roxy is still very active and spry. She walks well on the lash per the owner and knows basic commands. She is house trained. Roxy has a few 'old lady' boxer bumps and lumps. She has a skin tag on her back right leg and his heart worm positive. Roxy has been with the same family for 11 years and this transition to a new home is going to be hard on her, but is urgently needed. She would do best with a family that is going to be home a lot. Roxy seemed slightly anxious during our visit. When the family is home, Roxy is allowed to roam through the home freely. When the family is away, for extended Dr appoints as an example, Roxy is left outside. Roxy has become destructive and has developed separation anxiety. She has been chewing and clawing at the back door and fence. Roxy has not been crated since she was a puppy. Roxy is great with strangers and kids. Roxy currently lives with a 4 year old and she does very well with the child. The owner has stated that Roxy is good with dogs and cats. Despite her large size, she did not jump at all. We are unsure how she does during bath time or for nail trims. Roxy is very well behaved.

Other Info: ***UPDATE 5/30: Owner states he will SURRENDER TAYLOR TO A SHELTER IN ABOUT 1 WEEK***Taylor is a 7 year old spayed flashy brindle average sized female with natural ears and a docked tail. She weighs about 60 pounds and has a little extra weight on her. She is being surrendered because the owners are divorcing. The husband moved into an apartment with Taylor in March. He is a police officer and works 12 hr shifts. He keeps her crated for 12+ hrs a day. He is also moving again to another apartment in July in Grand Prairie and they require a $600 pet deposit. His 4 yr old daughter is allergic to Taylor. It seems like there is a Yorkie and a Schnauzer living with the child and mother that do not bother her allergies as much as Taylor does. When the owner is home Taylor is free to roam the apartment. When he is at work she is kept in a crate in his bedroom. She is crated 12+ hours a day. She is protective of family members but not aggressive. She was raised with two children ages 2 and 4 and is good with them. She was also raised with a Yorkie and a Schnauzer and likes most small dogs. She greeted me at the door, did not bark or jump on me. She sat and when I knelt down to her she gave me lots of kisses and nub wags. She is very sweet and gentle. She did eventually jump up on me several times while I was there but only to get more love. She is house and crate trained. The owner stated that she does great for grooming and nail trims and he has never had a complaint. Taylor is not getting much exercise. She is walked briefly for bathroom breaks. She has been to the dog park in the past and is submissive when meeting new dogs. Taylor's energy level is medium to low. She is silver faced and seemed content to just lay beside me. She is not possessive with toys. She eats Pedigree dry. She can sit, shake and down. She was trained by the owner. Her leash walking is okay, she pulls and is curious about everything. She was not walked often prior to March and is only walked briefly since March. She is disciplined using verbal correction. Taylor is fine with adults/children and strangers taking an item from her. She barks but it is not incessant barking, only when she hears other dogs barking or people outside of her home and it doesn't last long. She does jump on you but will get down when told. Taylor needs to be crated when no one is home. She gets destructive when bored and left alone for too long. Her last vaccinations were administered May 2015 but their vet's office is no longer in existence and nothing can be confirmed. She is not on heart worm prevention, last heart worm pill given in November or December 2015. She is great with small children both due to previous exposure and her low energy level. She is good with small dogs. She is very sweet and gentle girl. There isn't much that bothers this girl. She is very laid back. She is not fond of fireworks or really loud bangs but it is more a reaction to being startled. She had a broken leg as a puppy but no recent injuries and no illnesses.

Other Info: Teebo is a 6 year old large neutered fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He weighs about 75-80 pounds. He is being surrendered because his owners do not have enough time for him. He has the run of the house downstairs. He has never been crated. He is good with both kids, other dogs, and cats. He did bark and run to the door when I arrived, but when the door opened, he had the typical boxer wiggle butt. He is house trained. Owner states he loves getting bathed. His nails were very overgrown so not sure when last they were trimmed. Not sure how he behaves for nail trims. The yard is very small, with a large pond so not much of a yard at all. Husband states he walks him for exercise. You can tell he is lacking attention as he really wanted to be loved on. He was a little rambunctious but I think it's because of the lack of exercise. He is not possessive with toys. He eats dry, Costco brand food (in a red bag). The owner trained him at home. I tried to get him to sit but he wouldn't listen to me, but did sit when the owner told him to. He walks well on a leash. He walks with a collar and leash, no harness. He is disciplined using verbal corrections, he seemed to listen well to the owner. He would be fine if someone tried to take a rawhide or food bowl from him, no aggression at all. His size makes him a little intimidating, so I asked how he was around small children and the owner said fine. They have nieces/nephews that come over and it's never been a problem. He is not up to date on vaccinations and is not currently on heart worm prevention. Teebo seems like a very laid back boxer boy, he did get a little jumpy, but once I had been there a while, he just laid on the floor. Nothing really makes him act anxious or different than normal except the owner said he doesn't like to be in the yard by himself. No illnesses or inuries the owner is aware of, he appeared to be in good health.

Other Info: Buffie is an 11 year old 55-58 pound spayed fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because her owners feel like it is the best thing for Buffie. They sold their house and moved into an upstairs apartment a year ago. It is getting more difficult for Buffie to take the stairs. Additionally, the owner manages the apartment complex, and is not home much. Buffie spends all of her time either on the balcony, if someone is home, and if not home, locked in the bathroom. She does not seem happy. It's been a year of living this way, and Buffie is bored and unhappy. She is kept in the apartment bathroom when no one is home. Buffie is a sweet girl. Very good with adults, kids, strangers. Buffie does not care for other dogs. She does not bark or lunge at them, if say in the waiting room at Vet, but she sits and shakes. If another owner lets their dog come up to Buffie, owner waves them off and says, she doesn't like dogs. Buffie has always seemed to do well with young puppies, thinks of them as her own, apparently. But older dogs, she does not want to be around them. Owner's husband says it's not a problem on walks around the property, unless one comes right up in her face, but they avoid that. She is house trained and was crated trained when she was younger, but is not crated anymore. She doesn't like getting in the tub, but she will do it and doesn't try to jump out. She will let you bathe her. Since being in apartment, they take her to groomer 2-3 times a year. Buffie behaves well for the groomer. Groomer states the Buffie is the best dog ever. Groomer trims Buffie's nails, and she does fine. They walk her 3 times a day on the property. Owner also takes her to run in a dog park at the back of the complex. She just makes sure no other dogs are there. Buffie loves to be off leash and runs up and down the length of the park. She is very spry for a senior. Buffie is a senior, so she doesn't jump up on people. She is slowing down, I'm sure, but owner says she has a ton of energy for an 11 year old dog. She loves running off leash whenever allowed. Owner states that Buffie is "full of energy". She is not, however, interested in tug or fetch. She is not possessive with toys. She currently eats Blue senior with some joint supplements in it. It is dry kibble, but owner softens it with water to make a sort of soup. Buffie did not have classes, but they taught her sit, shake, stay, down, come, roll over, plays dead (bang!) and will hold a biscuit on her nose. They spoke as if she can do all these things, but they don't sound like they practice them a lot with her. And, since her back injury they don't make her do roll over any more. Her leash walking is good. Owner states "we never have to" discipline her. Owner says if something were taken away from Buffie, she would just look at you like, "am I gonne get that back?". Buffie is not a fan of other dogs. She eats plants. And if she has a yard, she will dig to bury her bone. Buffie is up to date on vaccinations, but has not received heart worm prevention since January. I encouraged them to take Buffie to TCAP to have her tested for heart worms and to buy some pills there. They weren't aware of the lost cost option. I would just plead with anyone who doesn't have any other dogs and just wants a calm, gentle old girl to be a companion, to please take her into your home. This girl is still full of life. She needs a home with a yard or at least a home where she's given a little more space than a bathroom or a patio. Hopefully someone has room in their heart to let her live out her golden years with more space and especially more time to love and interact with her. Just recently, Buffie has begun whining when she hears thunder, so they open the bathroom and let her in the room with them. So she sleeps in the bathroom at night, her bed is there. Buffie had some low back pain about three years ago. The Vet said her spine is fusing, but it's been three years and she has had no more pain or incidents since that first time. She has a raised bump on her neck, right side, near collar. She also has hyperplasia. Lots of rough patches from lying on concrete. Beyond that seems very spry and in good overall health.

Other Info: Bella is a small sized 1.5 to 3 year old spayed flashy fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She only weighs 42 lbs. Bella is heart worm positive but otherwise she is in great health. She is up to date and current on her vaccinations. She is not currently taking heart worm preventative because she was on antibiotics before heart worm treatments can start. They are scheduled to start her heart worm treatment at the end of June. The vet has stated that she has had about 2 litters. Bella is being surrendered because she was saved by another rescue who does not have the resources to continue with Bella's care. Bella roams free around the house when the owner is home and is crated when the owner is away. Bella is currently crated in a plastic crate. She has SEVERE separation anxiety. The only thing I noticed was I made some quick movement and she growled at me. No hackles. But after a few minutes she was leaning on me again. Bella is good with everyone. The owner has an 8 year old girl that Bella does fine with. Bella is not fully housetrained but her current owner is working with her. Bella loves being groomed but she has not had her nails trimmed as of yet. Bella gets most of her exercise out in the backyard. She likes to 'hunt' when she is out. She always has her head down and nose to the ground looking for things. Bella does not dig. She is a very low energy boxer. When I arrived she laid on the floor in front of me and just laid there. She does play with her ball and other toys, but not a rough player. She is not possessive with her toys. Bella currently eats Nature's Pride. She is learning basics but is VERY well behaved. The owners previously had a boxer so they have training skills with a boxer. Bella does pull a lot on the leash and she gets in hunting mode when walked. The owner is VERY sweet with Bella, she uses a calm voice, but Bella is so well behaved. Bella is not food motivated at all and shows no aggression when her food bowl or toys are taken away. This girl is SO VERY sweet, and I know she'd be gone in no time if someone can work on her separation anxiety. If I didn't have my female Boston, I'd take her in a minute.They are leaving on a 2 week vacation at the end of June and would like for her to be in a foster home by then as they don't think she'd do well in a boarding facility for two weeks. Owner has worked with this girl and even started to cry, but she knows they just don't have the time to dedicate to this sweet girl.

Other Info: Scout is a large sized white 3 year old unaltered deaf male with natural ears and docked tail. Scout was found as a stray. (They watched him being dumped.) :( The family does not have an adequate fence to keep him in. He is house and crate trained. Scout is kenneled most of the time, in a plastic crate. The family works long hours. Scout is good with adults, new people, and kids of all ages. Unsure how he is with baths or nail trims. The family has not had him groomed or bathed. He does not get to exercise often due to owners work hours. He also runs off if not on leash. He has an average energy level. The kids play with him every now and then. He is gentle with them. He eats Blue Buffalo dry food. I do not think he has any training. He is good on a leash. Since he is deaf they use physical correction..not in a harmful way though. They said he will dig at his pen fence if he wants out. He has run off twice. He was not jumpy, he only got on me twice for a hug. No vaccinations or HWP. He has a few scrapes, but she said he has run off a few times. Could be from barbed wire. Scout is a very sweet, gentle boy. He is a good size, he seems healthy. Looks like he eats well. He is dog friendly. He is kid friendly. He is not jumpy. He just needs a bath and a good home to call his own!

Other Info: Revis is a medium sized 9 year old neutered male brindle Boxer with natural ears and long tail. Owners have a new baby and they don't feel like they can trust him after an incident when their 4 year old was left unsupervised with him. He's house trained and they don't use a crate. He's free to roam the house unless they can't supervise him and then he is either put in another room or outside. Revis is pretty spunky for a 9 year old. If not for his grey face you'd think he was still a puppy. He's full of boxer energy. He's great with the family's 7 year old daughter and he was fine with our young daughter who went on the evaluation as well. They said he's fine with baths, unknown nail trims. For exercise he plays in the backyard. I was able to take his ball away from him numerous times. The family's young daughter was able to take his ball away from him without any issues. He does the typical play growl that boxers make when playing tug o war. He's doesn't do the drop it command very well. Revis knows basic commands. Sit, stay, down. They said he's fine on walks. Owners use verbal correction. Owners state he is current on vaccinations and on HWP. I think Revis would be a fairly easy Foster. The family said he's always been fine at the dog park although he tries to be the alpha for the first few minutes that he's there. I didn't notice him having any issues with children although I'd suggest he be supervised if he's with children under 5 or ones that aren't dog savvy. He has no known health problems.

Other Info: Lolaus is a 2 year old large flashy fawn neutered male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered because the owners don't have enough time for him. Loalus is either crated or in the backyard, when no one is home, but does sleep in his crate. He is very friendly with new people, and likes to demonstrate this with love and kisses. He is house trained. He is crate trained and can go for about 8 hours. He is not a big fan of bath time, but tolerates it. He has his nails trimmed at the vet. He plays in the backyard, with his brother and does get walked at times, but probably not as much as he should. He has typical boxer energy level and play style. He is not possessive with toys. He eats Kibbles & Bits. No formal training, but very eager to please, and he does know, sit, out, no, up, and will come if called, and he also knows "Cheetos" for treat time. He walks well on a leash and likes to be out in front. He hasn't had a much of a need for correction, but does respond to verbal correction, in a firm voice. No reaction if food or toys are taken away. Along with his brother, partners in crime, he also likes to dig in the yard, most likely due to boredom. He is current on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. Lolaus is a very sweet dog and rather laid back for young boxer, while he's on the larger side and could drop a few pounds, couldn't we all, he is still a very attractive boy and appeared to be very loving and overall a happy boy. Owner would love if the boys could stay together, but know this may not be the case, but he and his bother, Hercules, never seemed to be far from each other, I believe both boys would be a great addition to any family, and they have plenty of love to offer. He already has manners, and is treat motivated, so it wouldn't take much for him to learn some new tricks. Lolaus isn't really bothered by much of anything. Likes car rides and certainly made us feel very welcome with lots of kisses. No known illnesses or injuries.

Other Info: Hercules is a 2 year old large fawn neutered male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered due to work, life, general extra activities and not enough space for boxer that the owner feel he needs. When owner is home boxer has free roam, with the exception of the upstairs of the home. When owner is gone, Hercules is either crated or in the backyard. He does sleep in his crate. He is very friendly with everyone he meets, will sniff around and then just wait to be loved on, not too jumpy, but he is on the larger size, so older kiddos would be better, as to not get knocked over. He is house trained, he will go to the door,and also responds to "out". He is crate trained, can go for 8 hours. Somewhat timid of bath time at first, but then is fine, however he doesn't care for the jets in the tub. Nails are usually trimmed at the vet. He really doesn't get the exercise he should, but plays in the yard and does get walks occasionally. He is on the calmer side for a young boxer, but when he does play, it is usually the typical boxer play style. He is not possessive with toys, but does like to take his brothers toys, when he not around. He currently eats Kibbles and Bits. No formal training, but very treat motivated, he does know, sit, out, no and will come when his name is called, and he also responds to "Cheetos", as this is a treat. He walks well on a leash and likes to stay by your side. He doesn't really need much correction, but if he does, a firm voice will do the trick. Owner says he doesn't have any reaction to toys or food being taken away. He does like to dig in the back yard, most likely out of boredom. He and his brother have left a dead bird at the back door, but owners think the boys were just playing with it, a little to rough and don't think they meant to hurt it. He is up to date on vaccinations and current on heart worm prevention. Hercules and his brother, Lolaus, are being surrendered due to the family not having enough time for them, they are a bonded pair and pretty much are always at each others side, owner would love if they could stay together, but know that may not be an option, and feel they would be fine if separated. For young boxers, they are well behaved, not too high energy, but do love to play. They are just looking for a home where they can get all the love and attention they need. Overall a great dog, he is on the larger size and could maybe drop about 5 pounds, but still a very handsome boy. He did jump on me while I was there, but it was gentle, and owner stated that isn't something that he and his brother normally do. He hasn't had anything really bother him, and he's a rather laid back guy, especially for a young boxer. No known injuries or illnesses.

Other Info: Mia is a 6 year old medium sized unaltered flashy fawn female Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. Owners are surrendering her because she recently Mia bit their 2 yr old nephew. Mia was napping and the boy sat/fell on her and she reacted. They indicated that he is very rough with the dogs and can be mean to them (pulling hair, hitting). In the beginning when the boy would bother Mia she would initially growl to warn, then there were a few nipping instances. This last time she did break the skin. Around the same time, Mia has began fighting with the other female boxer in the house, so now they are having to keep them separated full-time as well. The owner watches her nephew M-F for about 12 hrs a day. This means Mia is crated inside or kept outside while he is there and then kept separated from the other female when he is gone. Before the incident with nephew and the fighting with the other female boxer she was kept inside free to roam. She is great with adults and older children. The owner has had Mia since she was a puppy and she was absolutely fine with her own 3 kids and other children that visited the home until now. I would recommend kids over 10 years old just to be safe. She also lives with a small, male dog (Shih Tzu?) and does fine with him. Other than that she is not socialized with dogs (no walks, dog parks, etc) She is both house and crate trained. Can be crated 8-12 hours in a wire crate. She does okay with baths and nail trims. For exercise Mia could play in the back yard. Very calm for a boxer. No jumping at all. She would come over for pets while we were talking and rolled over to have her tummy rubbed. I didn't see any play while I was there. Owners said she's always been very mellow and even a little timid. She is free fed dry Ol Roy. No formal training. Would sit for a treat, but that's about it. They rarely walk her, but say she's ok on a leash and doesn't pull too much. Verbal correction is really all that's needed. If you raise your voice she will hide. Owners say she is pretty sensitive. No toy or food aggression. The 2 female boxers were feed side by side for 5+ years with no incidences. She just had her annual shots and said she was healthy. However, she is not on Heartworm prevention. She is shedding quite a bit and needs a pawdicure. Mia is a beautiful boxer who is calm and gentle. She seemed very subdued. I believe she would be a great boxer for a family with older children who know how to properly interact with a dog.

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.

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.
