It has been five weeks since Captain America arrived at his foster home and he is making progress.  He might be the sweetest boxer we have ever met.  Captain America is still very scared, but we are slowly gaining his trust.  He has a special glimmer in his eye.  We think he is fully aware that he is now in a loving and safe environment.  Captain America loves his big fenced yard and his crate.  He is getting a lot of exercise and his coat is now beautiful.  Captain America goes into his crate and doesn't make a peep.  He is housebroken and doesn't bother anything in the house.  We think Captain America would do best with a calm, female dog to show him the ropes.  He would also be fine as an only dog.  Please consider making this sweet boy a part of your family!


Captain America has just arrived at his new foster home.  He is settling in well and learning the new routines.  We will post more information once his foster family gets to know him better.

Captain America is a 6-7 yr old male boxer who was just rescued from a puppy mill.  He is now fully vetted and doing great!  Captain America is going into foster with Manny and Betsy.  He is so sweet and is like a big teddy bear.  Please consider being his hero!  The Amish miller said that he had been abused at his previous mill and he felt sorry for him, which is why he took him home to his smaller mill. Captain America is a quiet guy who does well on leash.  He just wants to please and will melt your heart!

Message for Give a Dog A Name:

Thank you, Tim Moran, for giving Captain America his name. 

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.
