Apothes (aka Hooch) is a goofy, loveable, sweet boy who always aims to please.  He is well behaved and is very easy going.  Apothes' favorite activities are sleeping and eating.  He gets along well with his foster family and all the dogs at doggy daycare.  Apothes does need to wear a diaper 24/7, but that doesn't slow him down.  He would do best with a family who is home most of the day. 


Apothes is doing great!  He gets along well with my female dog and all other dogs at daycare.  He is the sweetest and most well-behaved boy, and he sure does have a personality!  Apothes has two favorite spots in the house, either in front of the fireplace or on your lap.  He enjoys sleeping most of the day in front of the fireplace.  Apothes walks well on leash and sleeps at night in his crate.  He will require somebody who is home most of the day because he will need to be changed to stay dry.  If you are a good match for Apothes, apply today!


Apothes is a super sweet boy and a big lap dog.  He gets along well with the female boxer in his foster home.  Apothes is also doing well with his crate training.  Everybody at daycare loves him!  If you would like to help sponsor the cost of Apothe's daycare, please consider a donation in his name.  He would also love to find a forever family of his own if you feel you are a good match for Apothes!


Apothes is doing great in his foster home!  He goes to doggy daycare every day and has made many friends.  While home, Apothes has been working on crate training, so being comfortable enough to nap in there is a big step for him!  This handsome guy is looking for a special home that will love him forever!


Apothes has been neutered and is recovering from surgery.  He loves his new spot by the fireplace! 


Apothes began doggie daycare and was so tired when he got home, he could barely keep his eyes open waiting for a treat!  This awesome boy is going to make a great addition to someone's family.  Yes, he has special needs - but he also has more than enough love to make up for the extra care that he requires.  Please don't let his nerve damage scare you off - he is well worth it!


Apothes is now in a temporary foster home, but is still looking for either his forever home or a longer term foster.  He is doing great with the other six dogs in the home and is a very loveable guy!  Apothes is not a fan of the crate.  He has some urine burns that are being treated and his temporary foster mom is trying out different options to help him stay clean.


Apothes is in urgent need of a foster home, or better yet - an adoptive home!  His visit at the University of Pennsylvania revealed that surgery will not correct his issues.  It is an injury to his spine that does not cause him any pain.  Apothes will need some assistance to urinate (a little bladder push) and he will need to wear a wrap when in the house.  He does not have mobility problems and is a very happy, goofy typical 5 year old boxer.  If you are that special angel for Apothes, please apply today!


We are still looking for a foster home for Apothes.  He was checked by our vet and we believe he may have a lesion on his spine or possibly a protruding disc.  Apothes is having a neurology consult on Friday and we will need to find a foster home for him a few days after that.  We would hate to put him in boarding at this point.  Ideally, his foster home should be located in one of our main areas (Long Island, New York City, Scranton, or Baltimore) so he will have easy access to one of our rescue vets.  We will update his page after the consult.

Apothes is a 5 yr old male boxer who is in need of a new home due to a change in life circumstances.  He previously lived with a female dog and did well with her.  Apothes suffered an injury two years ago and experiences incontinence as a result.  We will have this checked out at our vet when he is neutered.  If you can provide a home for Apothes, apply today!

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.
