9/30/16 - MEMORIAL

Roxy started to have multiple seizures and the vet was unable to get them under control.  Her foster mom was by her side as she crossed the bridge.  Roxy was only in her foster home since January, but she brought them so much love and joy. 

Rest in peace, sweet Roxy!


Roxy has been doing great in her foster home.  You would never know she is a senior girl - Roxy jumps around and kidney beans every day.  She loves the backyard and enjoys relaxing outside in her fenced yard.  Roxy is a great snuggler with her foster family.  She is a playful girl who is going to make a wonderful addition to a lucky family. 


Roxy is just so much fun!!  You would never know she was a senior girl.  Roxy is full of wiggles and kisses whenever we come home from work.  She has definitely come out of her shell and loves being the center of attention.  Roxy loves my daughter and follows her around the house.  She is a total snuggle bug!  Roxy is crate trained, but is not a huge fan.  When she is hungry, she will bring you her bowl!!  Roxy walks well on leash.  She is a barker and we are trying to help her control this when she sees other dogs outside from her yard. Roxy is an amazing girl and we are very lucky to have her!!


Roxy has arrived at her new foster home and is settling in well.  She travels great in the car and is very friendly with people.  Roxy is now living with a male boxer and two older children.  This sweet, senior girl is confused with all of the changes going on in her life right now.  We will update her page once her foster family gets to know more about her.

1/25/16 -

Roxy was surrendered to the shelter when her owner had a medical emergency.  She was evaluated with other dogs and did well.  Roxy seems to be a very well mannered girl.  She has already been spayed and will be brought up to date on all vet care.  Roxy will then be arriving at her new foster home, where she will be living with a male boxer.  We will update Roxy's page with more information and better pictures once she arrives in rescue!

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.
