Rio is doing fantastic and loving her new life!  She is housebroken and enjoys being around her foster siblings.  Rio is looking for a home with another dog and a fenced yard.  Apply today to adopt this super sweet girl. 


Rio is settling in well at her foster home and enjoys being around the other dogs.  She is learning house manners and walking better on leash.  Rio is a great puppy who loves attention from people.  She was recently spayed and is ready to find her forever home!

8/10/16 -

One of the largest puppy mills in Missouri disbanded (due to violations of their puppy stores in NJ/NY) and all dogs on the mill property were auctioned off.  We discovered that there would be eight boxers in this auction.  AABR was able to partner with "For the Love of a Boxer Rescue & Sanctuary" to save all of the boxers at this dispersal auction, which prevented them from being purchased by another puppy mill.  Rio is only 8 months old.  She will be transported to Pennsylvania this weekend, along with three other boxers.  We will update Rio's page once her foster family learns more about her.

Message for Give a Dog A Name:

Thank you, Tim Moran and Stefanie Armillay, for giving Rio 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.
