Beryl, aka Cookie, was given the chance to live out her life in comfort.  She was cared for and comforted till her last minute. 

From her family:

Dear sweet Cookie,

We miss your kind soul, the time we had with you was sweet.  We were expecting to enjoy a longer time with you,  to give you the things you missed in your life. We just couldn't take seeing you suffer with the pain any longer and regretfully had to let you go.

Our God now has you in his embrace and you will always safe.  I close my eyes and see your beauty. Your loving eyes will fill our hearts forever.  can see you in the sun, running with the wind.  You can now be safe and happy forever.

We have had other dog's and loved them all, each one loved in a different way.  Your leaving crushed our hearts.  Saying goodbye to you has reaffirmed our pledge to help, care for, and love those that God has entrusted to us for the time they have left.

Goodbye sweet Cookie, we will meet again in heaven.

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


Beryl has started some medication for her arthritis and she has become much more active.  She is now participating in daily activities and jumping around.  Her foster mom feels she is more likely around 8-10 yrs old.  Beryl is happier than ever and ready for a forever home!


Beryl has been adjusting well at her new foster home.  She is living with a male dog, who she is very tolerant with.  Beryl is a sweet girl who loves to sit and watch things outside in her yard.  She will also follow her foster mom around the house to keep her company.  Beryl knows her commands and will sit, stay, shake, and walk nicely on leash.  She would do best in a home without a lot of stairs.  Beryl doesn't hold back her kisses and her nub is always moving.  She has been very friendly to everybody she has met.  Whatever makes her family happy is okay with Beryl, whether it is going for a car ride or snoozing during the day. 

All Beryl really needs is a warm bed and comfy place to sleep.  She is a sweet girl with so much love to give.  Just one look into those deep brown eyes and you will understand why she has stolen our hearts.  Adopt Beryl today and see for yourself how much she has to offer.

Beryl was found as a stray in New York and ended up at the shelter.  She is estimated to be around 12 years of age.  Volunteers at the shelter indicated that Beryl was super sweet, appeared housetrained, and got around pretty well.  She has arrived at her new foster home and is settling in well.  We will post a new update once her foster family gets to know Beryl 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.
