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 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: Kratos is a medium sized unaltered 4 year old fawn male with natural ears and docked tail. He is not deaf. Kratos was a bit shy when I first met him, but he warmed up during the evaluation. Quite a calm boy. Not aggressive at all. Seemed to be fine with the 4 year old child in the home. Not jumpy at all. He was owner surrendered because of a new baby in the house. The other dogs in the kennels were barking and Kratos did not seem to pay them any attention. Kratos did not respond to any commands. He was calm on his leash, did not pull or tug. We did not cat test him. I evaluated him outside and the kitties were inside. Kratos is HW+. He also has a marbled sized tag hanging on his underside. The shelter worker said he was covered with ticks when he came in, I did see a few still on him. Kratos is an owner surrender due to the family having a new baby. He and another dog were brought in to the shelter together. He warmed up quick as I was petting him and seemed like a very gentle boy.

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: 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: Lulu is a 3 year old unaltered fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. Current owner found her roaming the streets and tried to locate her family. They have posted on Facebook pages and other websites with no success. They've had her for 4 months, but they can't keep her because she has gotten into fights with their much larger male Australian Shepherd/Husky mix named Rocky. Lulu is much better with Rocky now. Yet when she goes into heat almost every time they have to break up a fight. Lulu is still a little shy at first with strangers. She currently lives with a 10 year old boy, 14 year old girl and she does fine. She is around children young as 3 years old during family events at owner's home. Monthly basis. She is not as jumpy but could knock a small child over. She is house trained, with no accidents. She is crate trained, metal medium size crate, she can stay all day while owner is at work. She tolerates bath time. She needs to be placed in the tub, and she will stay very still. She will play chase and tug of war with other dogs but she loves attention more than toys. If the other dog is laying down somewhere, Lulu will get a toy and drop it on him to get him to play. She is not possessive with toys. The other dog in the house is food aggressive, but he is doing better. they are fed separate but have shared plates with watermelon and snacks. They share a water bowl. Lulu doesn't seem to be food aggressive and she will wait for the command before she starts to eat. She knows sit, shake, crate. But does not like the crate. She responds well to other commands like down, no, etc. She is not disciplined very often, but she has no longer been caught climbing on the kitchen table for food. She is not food aggressive or possessive of toys. Things can be taken away from her with no reaction. The only issue has been that when the other dog attacks her, she doesn't back down and they have to be physically separated. No knowledge on vaccination status. Current owner hasn't vaccinated her. Not current on heart worm prevention. Lulu is very sweet and pretty small and she deserves a home without a giant dog that attacks her. Her current family has moved and are expecting a new baby. They would like to see her placed in a foster home prior to the baby's arrival. If she doesn't have a spot in the next few weeks, they will have to drop her off at a shelter, and they said they would try to find a no kill shelter. They love her and want the best for her. She no longer tinkles when she gets scared (sudden movements or loud noises) Current owner stated that she is allergic to Neosporin. She used it on the puncture wound and it gave her a rash all over. She also stated that Lulu used to have white circular spots all over, but they're all gone (the last one is almost invisible). When she took her to the vet, the vet stated she's in good health.

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.

Other Info: Kono is a 5 year old (appears and acts younger this age is a guess) 56+ pound flashy brindle male with natural ears and docked tail. Owner is aging and having some health complications. She currently has bad arthritis in her hands, is not strongly balanced and her daughters expressed high concerns as she has early stages of dementia. Daughters are concerned for dogs well being and they currently are unable to keep dogs long term (one daughter in town and one in Austin). Kono is also new to the home and appears to be fighting for dominance towards his brother. Stated that Kono will corner his brother and push them out of the way and try to corral him. He has become vocal however he hasn't bitten or caused any physical harm. He is house and crated trained. He is crated for 5 to 6 hours. Good with adults, unsure about kids. Owner saved him from a shelter and the staff there said he was not good with cats. He exercised daily via walks and the home has a dog run and backyard where he runs and plays. Also plays indoors with toys. He is definitely hyper puppy boxer. He wiggles runs hops and plays. He is not sure about playing with other dogs. Owner's daughter brought her puppy over and he followed puppy but was never aggressive. He eats Purine One Chicken and Rice Formula. Hasn't been through formal training yet and still needs a lot of work. He pulls on the leash and gets more excitable around cats, birds, and wheeled vehicles (wagons, bikes, cars, etc). Owner used verbal redirection. He is fine and has not shown aggression when items are taken away from him. Eats nearby his fur brother but far enough apart that neither messes with the others food. Last vaccsinations were March 2015 and last heart worm prevention given March 2015 (Trifexis). He may or may not do well with his current brother. He may do well around a playmate of his play style and energy level. Nothing seems to bother him (sleeps right through storms) but owner has not had him long. No known health issues. Current owner will be handing over all records for Kono at time of surrender. When owner adopted him he had a very bad neuter job from shelter. He had an open incision and had to have medical treatment to allow it to heal appropriately.

She has arthritis, and her daughters stated early stages of dementia. They are worried about dogs well being. He is allowed free access inside. He is house trained. He has a crate and is crate trained however he is very mature boxer (no chewing/destructive behavior) so has not been crated in a long time. Great around new people and kids.

No health problems. Current owner would like her boxers placed together, but is considering that he can be placed without his brother (BIN 16189 OS Kono) due to them being new brothers and not appearing to share a bond. He doesn't prefer storms but doesn't react anxiously he just likes to sit close to owners.

Other Info: Owner Surrender Roxie is a beautiful 7 1/2 year old spayed flashy fawn girl with natural ears and a docked tail. Don't let her age fool you, this girl is full of energy, play, and lots of kisses. Roxie weighs approximately 55 pounds, is up-to-date on vaccines. She is overall a very healthy girl. Several years ago she had a spinal stroke, but has recovered back to almost 100% and you would never know besides an occasional sign of weakness in one of her back legs that corrects immediately. The vet said it was an isolated incident and that Roxie is as healthy as can be. Roxie walks great on a leash, and is so sweet and gentle with her seven-month-old sister and four-year-old brother. Roxie knows basic commands and simply loves everybody, skin and fur. She likes taking a bath so much that she will jump straight in the shower for her spa day. Due to a family move into another family's home, Roxy is spending 12 to 13 hours in a kennel in a bedroom with her fur brother. 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 Roxie. The owner feels that she deserves a home where she can run and play and be a normal boxer.

Other Info: Rufus is a 5 1/2 year old large neutered white male with natural ears and a docked tail. He currently stays inside when someone is home; otherwise, he is kept outside. The owner's adult son lives at home and is having a baby with his girlfriend. The owner feels that with the new baby, she will not have enough time to care for Rufus. Rufus is amazing with adults, kids and other dogs. Rufus is house trained but he is not crate trained as he stays outside when the owners are not home. The owner states that Rufus is well behaved when bathing and grooming. He walks daily and is extremely mellow and well behaved. Rufus is not possessive with his toys; he is also nonreactive when his toys, bones and food bowl are removed . He is currently eating Pedigree-canned dog food. Rufus has not had any formal training but he is well behaved and mellow. He also walks well on a lead. The owner currently uses verbal correction as a discipline method. Rufus will dig on occasion when left in the backyard. Rufus is current and up to date on his vaccinations; however, he is not UTD on HW preventative. Rufus has a tiny bump on the top of his head; the owner said that it was checked by the vet and he wasn't concerned with it being cancer so she never had it removed. Rufus may be almost deaf. The owner said that he can hear things but from my observations, I couldn't tell that he ever heard any of us while talking or calling his name. He never moved when I rang the doorbell and came inside. He didn't even know I was there until the owner got him up from laying down. Rufus suffers from seizures but now he is on phenobarbital twice a day and she said it controls them tremendously. He might have an occasional one still...maybe once or twice a year.

Other Info: Roscoe is an 8 year old neutered flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being rehomed due to his owner being pregnant and he needs more attention than they can give him. Roscoe is due for his vaccinations. His last heartworm pill was in March 2016. This boy needs to have a dental and get his labs done to determine the cause of his rear end hair loss. He is SWEET as sugar and just loves to be with his people. Rosco also has a couple tiny skin tags. Otherwise, he seems healthy. This boy lives in a small apartment and is crated while the owners are away. He spends eight to ten hours crated on work days in a plastic crate. He is free to roam when they are home. He is house trained. Owner reports he gets along with everyone. He has a min pin fur sibling and they get along well. He does fine for baths and gets nails done with a dremel with no problems. He is walked twice a day for about thirty minutes and likes to play with other dogs at the dog park. The sweet boy is gentle and has a pretty laid back style while indoors. He likes to play box and has average energy for an eight year old Boxer. Roscoe is not very interested in toys and does not show any reaction to dogs or people taking them. Roscoe is currently eating Taste of the Wild-Buffalo. He is trained and knows how to sit and speak, but has not had any formal training. Roscoe's owner reports he pulls on the leash and will run if he gets loose. He wears a harness when he walks. For discipline, the current owner uses verbal correction and time out in his crate, but he does not generally have any behaviors that need correcting. Roscoe did not have a reaction to food or toys taken away. He likes to be with his people and will whine if he is separated from them. He climbed in my lap when I got on the floor and climbed up gently when I was sitting on the couch. He leans in for love and is a great cuddle bug. He woo woo's when you talk to him. He loves to play with his big doggie friends at daycare and he would really love to sleep with his people at night. I think he would be great with children of all ages and other animals big or small. He gets very nervous when he goes to the vet, but does not exhibit any negative behavior, just whines and paces.

Other Info: PJ is a 5 year old, 56lb flashy fawn female with stunning amber eyes. She is pure bred boxer with natural ears and a docked tail. She is currently living in the same home as her mom, Presley. They have been in the same home for 3 years, but just since January, PJ has been not been getting along with Presley.  Each fight has escalated and worsens in severity. PJ now stays in a crate when owner is not home. When the owners are home, PJ and Presley are out but only one at a time to avoid any altercations. Their crates are in separate bedrooms in separate parts of the house, and the family rotates and takes turns with each boxer having time out with the Great Dane puppy.

PJ is great with all people, adults and kids alike. PJ loves attention.  She barks if a stranger comes in the home but if the family tells her "it's okay PJ" and gives her a treat, then she is fine.  She loves kids of all ages. PJ is house trained. She is crated about 8 hours a day while the family is not home; she can be crated up to 12 hours if needed. PJ behaves well for bathing and grooming. She will let you brush her teeth. PJ has had baths at home as well as at groomer; she is well behaved for both options. She tolerates having her nails clipped. The owners take her to the groomer to have her nails trimmed. Approximately three days a week, PJ is taken on about a 2 mile run with the owner. She also has her turns running around the yard with their 9 month old great Dane puppy. PJ is high energy around other dogs.  If she is just around people, she can be lazy. She is not possessive with toys. She is only growly with high value treats (bully sticks, hooves, etc). PJ currently eats Purina Pro Plan, adult weight management. PJ is very well trained!!  She has been trained both at home, as well as in classes with Top Dog.  PJ is proficient with the following commands:  sit, down, shake, heel, wait, come, place, crate. Her release word is "free".  PJ can hold "place" for 30 minutes until you tell her "free".  She waits at the door until you release her with a "free". PJ is excellent on a leash. The owners use a Starmark collar for training but she can now can walk on harness. PJ is disciplined with verbal correction, reward training and redirecting. If a family member takes anything from PJ, she would have no problem. No cats as she has a high prey drive. PJ does not do well with other females. She is up to date on shots and she is currently taking Tri-Heart Plus. PJ is a very beautiful and extremely well trained dog. 

I hope that someone has room to get her out of the home where there has been so much fighting, allow her ample time to destress and show off what great a dog can be.

Other Info: Jake is an average sized 1 year old flashy fawn neutered male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. Jake lives inside and is crated up to 6 hours when they're away. Sometimes he is crated while they are home as they're trying to potty train him. I got the impression the owners are getting frustrated because they have tried housetraining Jake but he doesn't seem to be getting the hang of it. He has pooped in the crate a few times (at night). From what he described it sounds like they are using the appropriate methods (crate training) but he is having accidents in the house and in the crate. He also has anxiety during thunderstorms. He does whine in the crate and owner said he's damaged the crate somewhat in failed attempts to escape the crate. He might have some separation anxiety. They have 2 other dogs and owner is a bit overwhelmed with all 3. Owner's girlfriend got Jake the day after her boxer died. He loves kids and adults. He does well with grooming and no issues with nail trims. He is leash walked around the neighborhood. He pulls a little but overall walks well. He plays with the other two dogs in the backyard. He jumped on me initially but then seemed fairly mellow for a boxer. He was more interested in eating his food than interacting with me. He is fed Pedigree dry food. He knows sit and shake. Verbal correction is used for discipline. Owner claims he has had a rabies shot and no other vaccines but no proof of any vaccines were sent to LBR. He is not on HWP. No known illnesses. Jake has a scar on his right side, chest area. Maybe from a dog bite/dog fight. He's missing a small chunk of his jowls probably from the same dog fight. Handsome dog, seems to have a nice temperament.
