Tyson was given the chance to live out his life in comfort.  He was cared for and comforted till his last minute. 

From his family:

Tyson was only with us for one month, yet he showed us the true meaning of love and devotion.
He was the sweetest and most loving being I have known.

We wished he could have been with us for a longer time but God had other plans for our wonderful friend.  I'm not sure what his life was like before he was rescued.  I'm sure his foster parents and us tried our best to make up for those years before being rescued by his new families.
Now he is over the rainbow bridge having the beautiful time we all wanted to give him.

Rest in peace our beautiful friend, we will forever love you.

Thank you to Judy and David for giving this senior his forever home.

Please welcome 14 year old Tyson to AABR!  This senior boy was surrendered to the NYC shelter when his owners could no longer care for him.  They have owned Tyson since he was a puppy and Tyson has watched the children grow up in his family.  The volunteers at the shelter have nothing but good things to say about him.  He does wonderful with other dogs, adults, and children.  Tyson is known to be a very relaxed and mellow dog when approached by all others.  Despite his older age, Tyson is reported to be housetrained, only going when taken outside.  He will "talk" to his owner when he needs to go out.  Tyson is well behaved when left alone in the house and was crate trained when younger.  For exercise, he enjoys slow walks on the leash.

Tyson is currently in a temporary foster home and is very confused about all the changes happening in his life right now.  We will post more information as we get to know Tyson better.

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please first read our Adoption Procedure, by clicking on the link at the top of this page, then fill out an online application.

Boxers and Applicants are not matched on a first come, first served basis. Not all applications are approved. On average, it takes between a week and 3 months to adopt a Rescue Boxer to an approved applicant, depending on your personal circumstances and flexibility.  

Not every home is the right match for a boxer, and matching Boxers suitable for placement with younger children, other dogs, cats, and special needs, yours and theirs, increases the application review time and adoption time. 

And yes, we realize that the Boxer you may have your heart set on, may be adopted before you're approved.   Should your first choices all ready found their forever home, we want you to advise us at your home visit of other dogs you are interested...  Or let us suggest a few that we feel will match your home.  That is what we are good at.   And be happy for the ones that have been placed... and know that there are way too many fantastic dogs waiting in their place.

Our non-profit organization is wholly comprised of hard-working volunteers whose only reward is seeing our wonderful Boxers placed in loving, permanent homes and given another chance for a happy life. Our process may seem slow, but if you are patient, we will try to provide you with a devoted, loving companion - a Boxer.

We hope you feel that the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
