Achilles has arrived at his foster home and is settling in well.  He is currently living with a cat and three other boxers (2 females and a male).  Achilles is also living with several children and he can often be found snuggled up with one of them.  Achilles is an assertive boy with a lot of spunk!  He is also a sweetheart who is very eager to please his family.  Achilles is currently at our vet's office, where he is receiving his first heartworm treatment.  Please consider donating to support the vet care and heartworm treatment for dogs such as Achilles and Serafina. 

7/29/16 -

Achilles and Serafina were brought to the shelter by animal control from a neglect situation.  Achilles is a sweet male boxer who is heartworm positive.  We will begin his treatment once he arrives at a foster home.  Achilles is reported to be dog friendly, although he can be selective about his friends and seems to prefer females.  He is also reported to be good with cats and children.

Achilles is still in the shelter and is in urgent need of a foster home.  Please consider being his hero!

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.
