Lefty is looking for a new foster home, or better yet - a forever home!  He needs a low activity placement outside of the city, where he can relax and learn to function as part of a family.  Lefty would do best in a home without other dogs at this time. 


Lefty has completed his heartworm treatment and is enjoying being off all restrictions.  He loves the outdoors and can get a lot of exercise now. 


Lefty is almost finished with his heartworm treatment.  He can't wait to be able to get out and run around again!  Lefty is still in need of a foster or forever home!


Lefty is in need of a new foster home with a confident female dog or with no other dogs.  He loves people and playing with his toys.  Lefty has one more treatment left for his heartworm, which will need followed by crate rest.  In 4 weeks following treatment, Lefty should then be off all restrictions.  If you are interested in adopting or fostering Lefty, apply today! 


Lefty is doing fantastic in his foster home.  He is good with other dogs and everyone he meets loves him.  Lefty is housebroken and loves to go for walks.  He is so happy AABR saved him!


Lefty is doing great in his foster home.  He has started his heartworm treatment and is recovering well.  Lefty is great with other dogs and loves every person he meets.  This boy is going to be a wonderful addition to a lucky family!


Lefty has been transported to his new foster home and is settling in well.  He will begin heartworm treatment soon.  We will update his page once his foster family gets to know him better.

Lefty was found as a stray in the south and is estimated to be around 1-2 yrs of age.  He is very sweet and needs to gain some weight.  Lefty is friendly with people, including children.  He is heartworm positive and will need to begin treatment once he arrives in a foster home.  Lefty will be transported soon to Pennsylvania!  If you are interested in adopting Lefty, 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.
