Chase is settling in well at his new foster home.  He is housetrained and crate trained.  Chase loves running through the yard while playing with his toys.  He is also just as happy cuddling up with you to watch a movie.  Chase is reactive to other dogs and is learning to work through these difficulties.  He is great with people and older children.  Chase would do best in a quiet setting with a secure, fenced yard.  He needs an assertive, calm leader to continue his training.  Chase is a smart boy who is very willing to learn.  You can't help but fall in love with him when you meet Chase. 


Chase is in urgent need of a new foster or forever home.  He has been fostered for the past few weeks in New York City after being pulled from the city shelter.  This past week, Chase has been doing well and taking a break from the chaos of the city.  He is on vacation in MA and is very interested in the water.  Chase sleeps in his crate downstairs through the night and is completely housebroken.  He loves to snuggle and will quickly steal your heart.  His coat is soft and sleek.  Chase just wants affection and a soft place to lay down.  He is learning to play with toys.  Chase does really well on car rides and sleeps in the back seat. 

Chase does need to be the only dog in the home for now.  He would do best in the country or somewhat quiet environment with a secure, fenced yard.  It is apparent that his past life has not been easy and Chase deserves a quiet place to call home.  He is a playful, loving boxer but can also be fairly low key and happy to just lay next to you on the couch.


Chase is looking for a home without other dogs at this time.  The city has been very overwhelming for Chase.  If you are interested in providing a quiet foster or forever home, apply today!


Chase is a great dog!  He loves his walks and is a very sweet boy.  Chase is housebroken and walks well on leash.  He also enjoys car rides.  Chase is now looking for a forever home.  Apply today for this handsome boy!

Chase was brought to the shelter with his companion, Khloe, a female Rottweiler.  The owner left them at the NYC shelter without a word.  Chase is covered with a lot of calluses, old sores, and numerous healed scars on his face.  He was very nervous at the shelter and unsure of the changes happening in his life.  Chase will be neutered this week and then will be arriving at his new foster home.  We will post more information once Chase has a chance to settle in.

Message for Give a Dog A Name:

Thank you, Emily Maley, for giving Chase his name to support AABR.

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.
