Otis has come far since he was rescued from his previous home.  He is now living the life he deserves.  Otis is getting along great with both his foster sister and brother.  He is crated when left alone during the work day.  This boy is very affectionate and is ready to find his forever home!


Otis was transported to Maryland through the Pilots N Paws program.  He is settling in well at his foster home.  Otis is getting along with both other boxers, a male and a female.  He is housetrained and working on crate training.  This sweet boy has come a long way since his previous neglect.  Apply today if you are interested in adding Otis to your family!


Otis has been making a lot of progress in his temporary foster home in WV.  He loves people and is learning how to get along with other dogs.  Otis is easily corrected and picks up on new things quickly.  He is still looking for a foster home so we can transport Otis into rescue!  Apply today if you can help this sweet boy.

We are looking for a foster home for Otis so we can commit to accepting him into rescue.  Otis has spent the last few years in the basement because his owner could not handle him.  They were going to take Otis to the vet to be euthanized until the neighbors stepped in and contacted rescue.  Otis is reported to do well with children.  He has not done well around other dogs, so an only dog home would be best at this time.  Otis will need an experienced home willing to work with him on training and socialization.  Apply today if you are able to help Otis!

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.
