Max was evaluated by a trainer and has started an 8 week behavior training program.  He functions solely on adrenaline and fear at this time.  The trainer feels confident that Max can move forward and live a peaceful, fulfilling life.  Max will be taught how to relax, balance his relationships to the people he lives with, and to learn proper impulse control.  His confidence will be improved through proper socialization. 

Max needs your support to help with his rehabilitation.  Please consider making a donation towards his training.  We would like to give Max the opportunity to lead a happy, well balanced life. 


Max is doing well in his foster home.  He has done fine with visitors coming into the home and he gets along well with his foster brother, a senior male boxer.  Max does startle easily, so would do best in a quiet environment.  He has shown a lot of reactive behavior on leash, so will be evaluated soon by a trainer to help him overcome this behavior.  We will continue to provide updates on Max's progress.


Max was adopted three weeks ago, but is being returned to rescue to find a home that is a better match for him.  Max would do best in a quieter and calmer home.  He needs to be placed with another dog to help with his confidence.  When outside, sounds and fast moving objects really startle him. Max is a super sweet and lovable boy with his family.  He will be arriving at his new foster home this week and we will update his page once his foster mom learns more about him.

Max has arrived at his foster home and is settling in well.  He is doing great with the two other boxers, male and female.  Max enjoys running in the yard with them and backs off when the dogs give him a warning.  This boy is full of kisses and his nub never stops wagging. Get your applications in soon for this sweet and handsome boy!

Max was surrendered to the shelter for being too hyper.  He is a young boxer boy and will need a home that understands the boxer breed and will provide him with appropriate training and exercise.  Max was recently neutered and brought up to date on all vet care.  He will be arriving at his new foster home this weekend.  We will update Max's page with additional pictures and more information soon!  Thank you for your interest in Max.

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.
