Included are some updated photos of Buttercup!  She loves walks in the park, does great on leash, and enjoys being around other dogs.  Buttercup will give plenty of kisses and she loves to snuggle.  She knows sit, stay, and will give you her paw.  All she needs now is a forever family to call her own! 


Buttercup wants us to give you an update on her... So here goes.

Buttercup has been in her foster home for about a month.  She is a beautiful, sweet, gentle 4yr old girl who was rescued by AABR from a backyard breeder. Buttercup's knees are somewhat out of alignment so we brought her to be evaluated by the head of orthopedic surgery at the Animal Medical Center in Manhattan, NY. The great news is that Buttercup is not in any pain or discomfort, and nothing slows her down! She does however have a slight crouched appearance of her hind legs. 

This girl has no problem jumping in bed or zooming around the yard. The surgeon does not feel that surgery would improve the way she walks. Sadly, had her knees been addressed when she was younger, Buttercup would have benefited from surgery. The surgeon believes that she was most likely born with "trick knees" and that inadequate housing (too small of a crate) is to blame for her current condition. Buttercup can do anything without restrictions. She will go on to live a normal, happy, healthy life. Buttercup is a shining example of how resilient and forgiving boxers are.

Buttercup came into rescue as an owner surrender.  Her previous owners were using her to breed and posted an ad on Craigslist. Buttercup is an easygoing girl.  She immediately got into the car and was quickly ready to start a new life in her foster home.  She has already started to show her personality.  Buttercup loves to play with a ball and give kisses.  She is a great snuggler also!  Buttercup knows her basic commands and will walk on a leash with a little guidance.  We have all fallen under Buttercup's spell.  One look and you will see she is as sweet as her 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.
